Cathay Pacific G16 Lounge
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The G16 lounge is located in the North concourse, right by Gate 16, and if it looks a bit old, that's because it is, having a past life at the former Dragonair lounge, which has now been taken over by Cathay Pacific. It is a "one lounge" complex, which is a simple way of saying it does not have a separate First Class section, and with food similar to that available in the...read more.

Cathay Pacific The Arrival
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
This tiny box of the Cathay Pacific The Arrival lounge is a great place to freshen up after the long flights from Europe or over the Pacific. It is located in the passageway between Terminals 1 and 2 (after you've gone through passport control and customs). It is quite hard to find: once you exit customs at either the top or bottom of Terminal 1, head to the centre, and fol...read more.

Cathay Pacific The Bridge
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The new kid on the block in terms of airline lounge at Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Cathay Pacific Bridge Lounge is very much the flagship feature lounge at Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok airport, at least in daytime. The lounge is vast - spread over a giant 27,500 square feet - however during the evening it turns into just a long rather dull corridor. It's great if you want lots of spa...read more.

Cathay Pacific The Cabin Lounge
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
Described by Cathay Pacific as "contemporary, refreshing and dynamic", it is a move onwards from the design of the original Pier lounge, which is now looking a bit careworn. Indeed The Cabin features a cutting edge design so much on the edge of ultra-modern it could also be called achingly trendy. For all its aspirations, the new lounge is separated into five fairly normal z...read more.

Cathay Pacific The Wing Business Class
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
For many passengers the Cathay Pacific The Wing Hong Kong Lounge is the main Cathay Pacific lounge at its hub in Hong Kong. It isn't - but it's really the first one many passengers come to, because of its right at the "root" of the airport. There are two levels to the Wing Lounge Hong Hong. On the ground floor first is to the left, and business ...read more.

Cathay Pacific The Wing First Class
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The Wing Cathay Pacific First Class lounge Hong Kong is one of the world’s best airport lounges, bar none. It is really very good indeed. It is also often very busy too, and at these times - often late at night - quality is lost as the lounge descends into a heaving mass of passengers. However the Cathay Pacific First Class Wing lounge, is actually just a sub-section of the ...read more.

Emirates Lounge
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The Emirates Lounge at Hong Kong airport is large and comfortable, but it hasn't been revamped like other Emirates lounges, and so still has elements of the old 'Dubai Chic' style. The lounge is full of gold, and tan leather armchairs. The Emirates Hong Kong Lounge is at the end of the pier by gate 40. Take the train - or walk - down to the end of the pier, slightly left,...read more.

Plaza Arrival Lounge
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
One of three Plaza Premium lounges at Hong Kong airport, the Plaza Premium arrivals lounge HKG is the smallest of the three, but airside, before security, and is designed as an arrivals lounge with a vast number of showers, but only limited dining facilities. It is rare however for an arrivals lounge in that it has a bar. The large Plaza Premium Arrival lounge Hong Kong airp...read more.

Plaza Premium Lounge West
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The Gate 40 Plaza Premium Lounge Hong Kong West Hall is definitely the Hong Kong pay-in lounge of choice at Hong Kong Airport, out of the three Plaza lounge airside at Hong Kong. It has by far the best view, a vastly better food choice, two bars, three main seating areas, and it's absolutely brand new. The only downside is that large parts of the lounge are either closed, or...read more.

Qantas Qantasclub lounge
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The new Qantas Hong Kong Lounge is brand new with great facilities, excellent food, and a top notch bar. It is also the British Airways Hong Kong Lounge, although there is no BA branding, nor staff, and indeed most facilities in the lounge shut up shop firmly at 8pm when the sole Qantas flight to Sydney leaves, leaving the Hong Kong BA lounge feeling a bit ragged by the time t...read more.

Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The Singapore Airlines new Silver Kris Lounge at Hong Kong International Airport (or HKIA, Chek Lap Kok airport) is a bit hidden away – you almost get the impression that SIA aren't particularly fussed about the Hong Kong lounge, which seems odd as the lounge was rebuilt in 2009, and is clean, quiet, dark, and a tiny bit soulless. The Singapore Airlines Hong Kong Silver Kris...read more.

Thai Royal Orchid
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The Hong Kong Thai Airways lounge is actually pretty good, and one of the best on Thai Airways International network. It has to be – by the time you’ve got to the far end of the long pier at Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok airport, you’ll need somewhere for a bit of a rest. The lounge is at the end of the long pier, upstairs, and at the other side of the V shape to United's somewhat ...read more.

Travelers Lounge East G1
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The Traveler's Tavern lounge East by Gate 1 is the flagship lounge of the Plaza brand, and as such it is a 15,000 square feet leviathan with a seating capacity of 250 people. Alas, it's also decorated in what could charitably be described as 1990s hotel lobby style, and lacks any real flourishes: for that, you need access to the Cathay lounges. The Traveler's Tavern lounge...read more.

Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse
 Editor's Review   Your Comments 
The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse Hong Kong is pretty good, but starting to look a little dated, with decor that doesn't quite fit with the rest of the Virgin Clubhouse brand: it is definitely 'old school' Virgin, and was opened in 2004, to launch the new flights to Australia, and designed by hlstudio. The Ho...read more.
