Plaza Premium continued their global expansion of premium lounges today, by launching their brand new lounge located in the Departure Transit Hall of Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1. Following the consistent new design style found in Plaza Premium’s lounges, the 7,000-square foot space provides over 140 comfortable seats, including the lounge’s signature Honeycomb seating. Being a paid for lounge, passengers in any class and any airline in Terminal 1 can use the space for a fee of SGD58, which allows access for five hours.
Unlike some other Plaza premium lounges, this space features an expansive view of the airport runway. There is a clever use of earth colour tones and timber materials in the design which gives the sense of a warm and relaxing space. We love the ceiling design in the main lounge area which makes for a really dramatic architectural statement.
Following the latest trend in lounge offerings, Plaza Premium’s lounge is equipped with three private resting suites, accommodating one to three persons in the form of both a double and single bed and work station, offering a quiet sanctuary for those wanting to catch a quick rest before heading to their next destination.
There are also six shower rooms with amenities, two VIP rooms as well as an exclusive area for massage and nail care services. Naturally the lounge also provides complimentary Wi-Fi throughout and plenty of plug sockets for tablets, laptops and personal devices.
As with any lounge, food is important, and the new lounge introduces live cooking stations (similar to the newly updated noodle bars in Cathay Pacific’s lounges), where guests can enjoy an interactive airport dining experience where chefs prepare favourite local dishes upon request.
Delectable selections at its all-day dining spread include signature dishes such as Singapore Laksa, classic Singapore Chicken Rice and The Green MarketTemaki. Complimentary hot and chilled beverages are at guests’ disposal whilst a separate bar area serves specialty coffees, juices, beers and wines. For carb lovers, dip into the baked bread or home-made chocolate chip cookies.
This isn’t the first lounge Plaza Premium has opened in Singapore, and Plaza Premium also operate The Green Market Express in the Departures Hall Terminal 1 and both The Green Market & The wellness Spa in the Departures Hall Terminal 2.
“We are very excited to be in Singapore Changi Airport – one of the world’s best airports with over 54 million passengers travelling through annually. We first introduced the independent lounge concept in Singapore Changi Airport in 2002, and in our return we promise to raise the bar and take the airport experience to the next level for our guests. Our presence here is key to our international growth strategy and in particular, in the Asean region. In addition to the Wellness Spa and The Green Market, we look forward to partner with the airport once again, to provide an enhanced experience for all airport travellers with the opening of Plaza Premium Lounge Singapore.” said Mr Song Hoi-see, Founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Lounge Management Limited.
