1. Air France – KLM SkyLounge
The Air France – KLM SkyLounge is located in the International Terminal, airside, in Concourse F, near gate F2. You could actually walk to this lounge regardless of the Concourse that your flight is departing from, (as long as it’s an international flight) because this lounge is not far from the central area.
This airport lounge is open 24 hours a day and you get access if you are an Air France or KLM Business Class passenger or if you are an elite status holder. SkyTeam partner airline members also get access. Finally, this is also a Priority Pass lounge and is one of the best Priority Pass lounges our reviewers have experienced. It’s a great lounge.
The lounge has a shiny Air France and KLM logo in silver above the door, so you can’t miss it. Once inside, the lounge is classy with an outdoor to indoor feel with pine and white walls and furnishings and lots of palm or fern style plants.
The lounge has floor-to-ceiling windows on one side and green plants on the other. The seating is separated into pine booths so you have plenty of privacy. The best seats face towards the big windows so you can watch the planes move about and park up. These are great seats for aviation geeks like me!
There is also a high table with high stools if you want to work or be sociable (as there are seats on either side of the table). There are magazines and newspapers in a rack against the wall and at one end of the lounge, there are some rather grotesque massage chairs. There are also toilets and shower rooms in this lounge.
The right side of the lounge is dedicated to the self-serve buffet area with a great selection of food and drinks. There are also some cafe-style chairs and tables here with views out to the tarmac again, which is really nice while you are eating.
There are plenty of soft drinks in glass-sided fridges. The usual selection including, canned Coke, Sprite, Fanta, tonic water, etc., bottled water, tomato juice, and milk. There is also a choice of Heineken and Singha beer in the fridge. In addition, you will find apple and orange juice, a coffee machine, and tea bags. There are also spirits and bottles of wine.
Breakfast is great here and includes hot and cold items including omelets, sausages, beans, and ham as well as the Asian option of fried rice and instant noodles. In addition, there is bread, pastries, yogurts, chocolate eclairs, cereals, cut fruit fish cakes, cold sandwiches (egg and ham, vegan cheese, potato salad sandwich mini beef burger, tune cucumber cup, etc), and instant noodles. There are cakes; chocolate, lemon and butter, and also a delicious apple tart as well as icecream, crisps, and nuts. For an airport lounge, this is quite a feast!
Overall, the Air France-KLM Lounge has to be the joint best Priority Pass lounge at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport. The Oman Air Lounge is also a brilliant Priority Pass lounge at this airport.
2. Oman Air First & Business Class Lounge
The Oman Air First & Business Class Lounge is located in the International Terminal, airside, in Concourse E. This is a Priority Pass lounge and is one of the best Priority Pass lounges at Bangkok airport. You can also buy access to this lounge for around $40 USD per person. Equally, you can access the Oman Air lounge if you are flying on Oman Air in Business Class or if you are an elite member of Oman Air’s Sinbad program.
This lounge is really smart and stylish with light grey furnishings and classy black and grey walls with lots of metallic and mother of pearl detailing. It feels very Arabic. There are also two big iMacs on a bar-style high table with stools.
The buffet is also classy and backlit with blue lighting. There’s a Nespresso machine, tea, Arabic coffee, with fridges underneath containing plenty of soft drinks. There’s an array of self serve spirits and wines including Chandon Champagne. The food is also impressive with lots of hot options laid out in huge frying pans like biryani rice, spinach cutlets, mini quiches, fish kebab, and chicken tikka.
For breakfast, there are lots of cereals, little delicious pots of Bircher muesli, smoothies and juices, pastries (loads of them), and beautiful cupcakes. It is a fairly incredible spread for an airport lounge, and if you are used to US Domestic lounges or your average Priority Pass lounges, you will be blown away with the spread.
3. Bangkok Airways Blue Ribbon International Departures
This Blue Ribbon Lounge offers 120 seats. The facility has free Wi-Fi and a computer corner. It also provides newspapers, magazines, and snacks including popcorn. I cannot comment on the food here as we haven’t visited this lounge but I would expect the offering to be similar to the Domestic Blue Robbin lounge below.
4. Bangkok Airways Blue Ribbon Lounge Domestic Departures
Bangkok Airways Blue Ribbon Lounge can be found in Domestic Departures. This lounge embraces purples on the walls while the floor is a classy parquet and finished with artistic elements. It also has free Wi-Fi, a computer corner, newspapers, magazines, a private shower room, and massage service.
The self-serve food includes cold bread and salad and dim sum. The kitchen also has 5 made-to-order dishes ordered through a service window. These are excellent chicken or beef with rice or noodle dishes. There are also soft drinks in a fridge, alcoholic drinks, and a coffee machine if you are feeling thirsty.
5. Miracle Business Class Lounges
There are Miracle Business Class Lounges are all over Bangkok airport so they take our spots 5 to 10. They can be found in Concourse A, C, D, F, and G. These tend to be Priority Pass lounges.
The First Class Miracle lounge is the best and is located next to the Business Class Miracle lounge. For a start, it has its own toilets and showers which is useful.
The First Class lounge is very spacious but with views down to the airport concourse rather than outside. There is plenty of alcohol, lots of cakes along with cut fruit and salad in catering dishes (the ugly silver buffet ones). There are also several hot dishes you can order here, including roasted red pork with steamed rice, roasted duck with steamed rice, and noodle soup with shredded chicken.
While this lounge is fine, as we are the other Miracle lounges, you would do better picking one of the airline-branded lounges outlined above.
