Best Airline Lounge in the World

Best Airline Lounge in the World

After giving my Top 10 Airline review. I will share with you my Top 5 Airline Lounge.

The rankings are based on my own extensive air travel experiences and preferences.

Coming from an aviation geek and frequent traveler point of view, I look at the whole package include the lounge access, features of the lounge, overall comfort and feel of the lounge, food and beverage on offer, amenity and customer service provided.

I do not receive any benefit/goodwill/commission by compiling this list.

 

No 5. Qantas First Class Lounge, Sydney

The design is simply amazing in Qantas First Class Lounge. It has a great natural light balance with ceiling to floor window, the lounge boasts a commanding view of ramp activity. (Great for plane spotting!) Not to mention its amazing Rockpool inspired dining and a beautiful spa area.

No 4. Cathay Pacific First Class Lounge, The Pier, Hong Kong

The Pier re-opened in June 2015 after some extensive renovation. The standard has been raised again to a even higher level! It now has a top end hotel lobby feel instead being an airline lounge. It offer excellent all day dining but my favorite feature has to be the "Retreat area" which consist of many day bed with amazing apron view!

No 3. Lufthansa First Class Terminal, Frankfurt

Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt is a destination of its own! It is a private terminal for First Class passengers! The terminal offer every details of an exclusive traveling experience. I have never seen a well stocked bar than the one in this lounge. Not to mention you're taken in a beautiful German Mercedes Sedan or Porsche 4x4 to your plane directly from the lounge!

No 2. Qatar Airways Al Safwa First Class Lounge, Doha

Upon entering the lounge, the soaring ceiling immediately takes your breath away...

The lounge’s artwork and minimalist design create the ambience of a modern art museum that will impress even the most discerning frequent flyers and travelers alike. There are a waterfall on the walls and an impressive water fountain as the centerpiece of the lounge.

It is extremely spacious with amazing facilities such as restaurant style dining, a pay to use elegant spa, hotel style day rooms and private family area.

There is also a nice collection of Middle East antique and fine art painting showing inside the lounge!

No 1. Air France Salon La Premiere, Paris CDG

The Salon La Premiere provides unrivaled and unmatched exclusivity out of all the First Class Lounge I've visited in the World.  The seamless and hassle free plane to plane transfer, attentive lounge attendant, amazing food and beautiful relaxation area put this lounge into a destination of its own.

The lounge is having just the right size, it is not mega huge nor does it feel crowded. The best part is the dining experience. You are served with exquisite French cuisine created by Michelin star chef paired with excellent wines. The lobster I have was one of the finest there....

Everything is well taken care of, the lounge experience start from the moment you arrive. There couldn't be a more carefree experience....I can't wait to be back again!

Best Spa Lounge

Thai Airways Royal First Class Lounge and Spa, Bangkok

While all of the top 5 lounge in my list provided spa treatment, I don't think anyone can look beyond the Spa country, Thailand's flag carrier Thai Airways Royal Spa Lounge for the perfect spa retreat before flight. First Class ticket holder receives a complimentary spa treatments for 60 minutes in the spa suite while Business Class passenger receive 30 minutes treatments of foot or back massage.
