As soon as my flight landed in Paris CDG, not only one but two Air France agent pick me up at the door and onto the awaiting limo underneath our gate, I knew I was in for an grand treat!!!
The Air France - Sixt BMW 7 series Limo waiting for me.
The lovely AF agent posing a photo with me.
I was welcomed immediately upon arrival and accompanied to the La Première lounge at an exclusive location.
Since coming in from Schengen area, I did not have to pass through security. A lady took care of my bags and all the formality. I was told everything have been taken care of even included a spa booking for me!
They assigned a special attendant to take care of me during my stay in the lounge.
I don't have to worry a thing in the lounge.
Winner of the Best First Airline Lounge 2014 and 2015! Very impressive!
I went to the restaurant area first, which is served by the immaculately dressed waitress.
The dining area is very quiet and private.
Although there is a buffet area set up, it is more for display. You can simply ask the waitress to bring you anything from the menu or buffet.
Here is the breakfast menu
I ordered an omelette with some cold cuts.
Bacon on the side.
And the best....Top grade Jamon Iberico Pata Negra (Black Iberia Pig ham) with the fat melts in your mouth.
While enjoying my breakfast, my host in the lounge came with a bag of lovely surprise!
I was really surprised, the gift are so generous and will be treasured.
Include a leather pouch with "La Premiere" by Air France emblem on it.
Well the breakfast taste fine, but I made sure I didn't overeat and save some space for lunch which I believe it will be a proper French gastronomy affair.
After breakfast, I went further explore around the spacious yet exclusive lounge.
Further seating area is available behind the dining area.
There is a beautiful red glowing bar.
Behind the seating and dining area, there is a very uniquely decorated relaxing area.
There are no one in the whole area which makes it very quiet and private.
I was the only person there!
There is a soothing sound and light show from the large screen. Very relaxing to sit down and unwine.
Soon, it is my turn for Spa.
Air France La Premiere customer receive free 30 minutes spa treatment (Facial or Massage)
Passenger could also pay for longer treatment.
After relaxing treatment, I went to use the bathroom. They're all individual rooms with round shape which I love the design. There are also few shower rooms available.
Amenity at shower suite.
Around 12:30pm, I came back to the restaurant and settled in for lunch. The waitress informed me they just changed their menu. Having fine French food is something I just can't miss!
The menu is designed by famous French chef, Alain Ducasse
I asked for Foie Gras for starter, although this is not on the menu today, the waitress/chef is able to accommodate my request!
I have lobster for main course. The waitress pour the lobster jus in front of you. The taste was so good.
Equally nice was the green tomato which is rare.
For dessert, I chose the "Monte Carlo style Baba" with Rum.
Again the rum is poured in front of you and you're served together with warm cream.
The lunch was truely exceptional! It really satisfy my palate and makes me remember it.
Well that was my 4 hours spent in the lounge. Time passed so quickly that I almost didn't believe it was time for boarding.
Reluctant to leave the lounge, I was told the in-flight experience will be even better!
My bags are already loaded and I am ready for the voyage!
The Salon La Premiere provides unrivaled and unmatched exclusivity out of all the First Class Lounge I've visited in the World. I'd rank it the top of all lounge experiences. 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. I can't wait to be back again!
Salon La Premiere - Truly an exceptional lounge!
