The Singapore Airlines new Silver Kris Lounge at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport for Business and First Class passengers is brand new, and a vast improvement over the old lounge in the old Don Muang airport.

It is on the upper causeway, level 3, in concourse A (above the domestic gates) and just after the Bangkok Airways lounge. From outside, all you can really see are bland white marble walls. Inside the lounge is designed in modern-contemporary style, with walls decorated in rich Thai hardwoods, with full-height fabric-laminated glass panels to enhance privacy, and create a rather maze like feeling as you wander around.

There are high ceilings offering a sense of space, and full-length windows allow views of the garden outside, our through the end window, the Thai domestic lounge. The 102 seats are pretty nifty, upholstered in nature-touch fabric or rich leather.

Incidentally, there is a bit of a back story to this lounge. For the first couple of years after Bangkok's new international airport opened, SIA shared the Thai run lounges, under the so-called "move under one roof" policy of Star Alliance, which aims to just have one lounge at each airport. Singapore Airlines however always likes to do things differently, and following complaints by passengers, built its own lounge, at a cost more than 28 million baht. So now, when you’re lounge hopping around BKK, you can at least get some variety & get away from the Thais. The lounge is a full Star Alliance gold lounge.

Food

Food is OK, with less variety than in the Thai lounge in D, but with better choices. There are Singapore delicacies, including assorted dim sums and noodles.

Sandwiches are just cheese or ham, in tight plastic packets. Hot pies are in the heated cabinet.

There are a few very good sweet pastries, fresh fruit and Haagen Dazs Ice Cream in the fridge on the wall.

Bar

There is a very small bar, with one red and one white on the sticking out worktop, and five spirits (Gin, Vodka, Whisky, and 2 Campari). Singa beer is in the fridge.

Oddly, fresh coconut juice is in the jug in the trough, along with orange juice.

Bathrooms

Bad news however if you want visit a bathroom – there are none in the lounge, and the nearest one is outside and 50 yards down the corridor.

There are no showers - the nearest ones are in the Thai Airways Concourse C Lounge (on the right hand side).

Business Facilities

At the far end of the SilverKris Bangkok Lounge are a couple of 50-inch plasma televisions, stuck on CNN, and a small business area and a WiFi network for wireless Internet connection.

Alas there are only three computers and they are Macs. Power-points are located next to most seats (UK/Singapore design) so you can plug in a laptop.

On the round central part of the lounge there are newspaper racks.
