Plaza Premium certainly knows how to celebrate its 20th anniversary in style. The pay-for-lounge company has launched a brand new lounge concept. Plaza Premium First is the group’s step above their existing lounge offerings, with a lounge concept that is more akin to traditional First Class lounges.
The launch lounge, designed by award-winning Hong Konger Kinney Chan, is situated by Hong Kong International Airport’s Gate 1. The lounge has been imagined with a different look and feel to the group’s other lounges. Natural materials, soothing colours, and artwork including a large forest mural have been installed to create a tranquil and serene ambiance.
The lounge is definitely on trend, with personalisation at the heart of the experience. The journey begins with a welcome tour from a Lounge Ambassador, a TWG-made tea mocktail, and a 10-minute complimentary neck and shoulder massage. The lounge is also equipped with private shower rooms coupled with Elemis skincare amenities and complimentary Wi-Fi to ensure a seamless, comfortable experience for travellers.
The lounge introduces Plaza Premium Group’s newest table-service restaurant, ‘Primo’, which reflects First Class lounges by offering, à la carte dining with seasonal made-to-order entrées, all-inclusive and self-serving hors d’oeuvre, and breakfast options. Highlighted dishes from the à la carte selection include Maine Lobster and Capellini served with aromatic lobster velouté, and Traditional Marinated Goose with Marinated Egg served with steamed rice.
For those not wanting an à la carte experience, there are also dessert bars and self service food stations such as an impressive salad bar. For those drink connoisseurs the lounge’s Aerobar also serves an extensive premium whisky selection by Pernod Ricard including Glenlivet 25 years old, Aberlour A’bunadh, Longmorn 16 years old and Scapa Glansa.
The lounge also features Infinity rooms, which are dedicated rooms that can seat up to 20 people at a time.
Access to the lounge starts at just HK$880 for three hours, but there are a couple of discounts also available. From now on, Plaza Premium Lounge guests from eligible banks and travel programmes can also choose to top up HK$200 per person or redeem 1,500 Arrture Points per member (applicable to Arrture members only) to enjoy a three-hour access to Plaza Premium First, plus a bonus offer on one portion of hand-sliced Bellota-Bellota Ibérico Ham and PPF Heartwarmer. Until 5th October, as a special offer the cost is just HK$700.
