After another awesome one-night stay this trip at an SPG hotel, it was time to head back to Dubai. Luckily, Emirates has its own lounge in Bangkok. Here’s what that was like!
I was picked up promptly from the Aloft Sukhumvit by an older Mercedes, courtesy of Emirates’ Chauffeur service. Even though I was traveling in business on a layover, I received this complimentary because of my downgrade from first to business on my first leg.
I reached the airport very fast, due to my driver’s Nascar-like driving. I needed to pick up my new boarding passes for the last two legs of the journey, so I stopped by the check in desk. I then quickly cleared customs and security, and made my way to the Emirates Lounge.
This lounge was recently redone, and I loved the style. The lounge was basically one long room, with the entry area and showers making up the balance of the space.
Catering was a bit different than Hong Kong, but nonetheless high end.
My plate was filled, and I was happy. I also had some Thai beer to taste the local culture.
I had to print something out, so I used the business center.
There’s a separate bar area near the business center alcove, self-serve.
I spent about an hour or so in the lounge, and then went to the gate when boarding was called, which was close by.
