I have the pleasure to visit Etihad Premium Lounge in Sydney before my flight to Abu Dhabi.
The lounge is located near gate 51 on the Western pier of Sydney International. (Next to R M Williams shop)
I was offered Arabic coffee and date by the friendly lounge staff Fatima and Adam.
The lounge is on the lower level, which can be accessible by stairs or elevator.
Main area seating with good apron view.
Selection of Arabic Mezze and cold dishes
The bar area
So I settle in for dinner, the lounge offer restaurant style dining with waiter service.
For starter I have the confit Atlantic Salmon.
I have the excellent beef short ribs as main.
Chocolate mille-feuille for dessert.
After dinner, I went ahead to further explore the lounge, it has a dedicated children's area, consistent with other Etihad Premium Lounge.
The lounge also have 2 separate praying area. (1 for male and 1 for female)
In each prayer area, it comes with a foot shower.
Actual praying area, facing Macca
The lounge also come with Shower room facility.
The Etihad Premium lounge in Sydney is excellent in every regards, almost rival a First Class Lounge standard. It has a cozy and relaxation feel. I spent a good pleasant two hours there and looking forward to visit it again!
