Ever since I obtained Oneworld Emerald there have been 2 lounges on the top of my list I have wanted to visit. The Pier and Wing first class lounges in Hong Kong. I don’t know what it was but It was something I really wanted to experience.
As my previous post explained which can be found here Qantas A330 Business class review, I was headed to Hong Kong the main reason to see family and review these two lounges.
I arrived at Chek Lap Kok airport extremely early almost 10 hours early yes that is a long time to be in a lounge! The only reason I was so early was to help my grandparents around the airport as they were flying to Newark before I flew back to Sydney. My first impression of the airport was Holy S**t! I’ve been through Dubai and many other airports but there was something crazy about it that I loved.
Check-in and security were quick and easy and I was airside within 15 minutes, pretty impressive considering the amount of airline traffic and passengers that pass through.
As security was very close the the Wing it only seemed logical to try that lounge first.
First impression of the lounge was ‘WOW’!
Various newspapers and magazines to read
secondary dinning area of the Wing
Work stations with Apple mac’s that have windows installed on them
large amounts of seating and its always a quiet space
3 types of Champagne to enjoy
Lots of natural light
A great feature of this lounge is the natural light. It makes the lounge feel a lot more spacious and empty.
Comfortable working table chairs
The thing I was most excited to see in the lounge was the Cabana’s. I had heard from many friends and other bloggers that I had to go and use it. Unfortunately I didn’t use the Cabana as I had spent most of my time in the Pier.
Long black marble walkways which feel very private.
I had to pinch myself because for a second I didn’t believe I was in an airport lounge. Yes a shower is popular In lounges these days but a full sized bathtub, thats awesome!
Large basin that is nice and clean
Surprisingly both lounges use didn’t hand and moisturising products. I didn’t realise till after leaving the lounge and looking through photos. I like the idea and think it adds a nice touch.
Comfortable leather couch
Very tall shower
Full sized bathtub
Overview of the Cabana
Overall I loved my time in the lounge and would love to go back and use the Cabana. I love the fact that Oneworld Emerald members can access the lounge. Is this lounge better then the Pier? In my opinion Not quite. If your wanting to have a shower or bath before a flight this is the lounge to go to. The Pier has showers but nothing like this.
I’ve visited a few oneworld lounges and would have to put this this quite high on the list.
