What you get is a lounge that’s elegant with minimalist flair: Think Carrara marble, terrazzo details, light-colored woods from Europe, and brass features.
Following its October announcement, Qantas’ highly anticipated first-class lounge in Singapore has finally opened at Changi Airport Terminal 1 D-gate wing, along with an expanded business lounge.
Created in partnership with chef Neil Perry and industrial designer David Caon in collaboration with Akin Atelier, the Qantas Singapore First Lounge prioritizes sustainability in terms of material choice, lighting interior, layouts, and amenities. What you get is a lounge that’s elegant with minimalist flair: Think Carrara marble, terrazzo details, light-colored woods from Europe, and brass features.
The lounge seats 240 travelers, which will hopefully ease overcrowing in the Qantas Singapore Business Lounge (whose capacity has increased to 600 passengers). To satiate appetites, the lounge features a live cooking station, as well as a cocktail bar serving local-inspired tipple such as a mojito made with calamansi (citrus hybrid).
Travelers working on-the-go will also be pleased to find a good number of power sockets near a variety of comfortable seating, including sofas, banquettes, and plush armchairs.
To freshen up, simply head to the lounge’s ten shower suites, each one stocked with LaGaia Unedited First spa products, which are the same ones used at Qantas’ Sydney and Melbourne first-class lounges’ day spa.
Open from 2:30 p.m. until midnight daily, Qantas’ new first-class lounge is an oasis of relaxation for first-class passengers, as well as Platinum, Platinum One and Chairman’s Lounge members and their Oneworld Emerald equivalents.
Meanwhile, the airline has also said that it will upgrade its lounges in Tokyo, Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane, Hobart, and Tamworth in regional Australia.
