Lounge access in Singapore (Star Alliance Gold in economy)

By jimmyblue | Oct 23, 2018, 09:26 AM
Hi Guys

I'm Star Alliance gold - flying SQ in economy, MEL - LHR. Have a 3-hour layover in SIN with a 6 year old, so keen to freshen up.


Question is, are there are lounges I can use in SIN with a shower? I've tried looking, the Kris Flyer Gold Lounge doesn't appear to have one (from memory it's not a 'great' lounge either). Doesn't look like the Royal Silk lounge does either (Is this a better option also, have never been in there?)


Much appreciated

This is one of those times where Priority Pass can be your friend. Unfortunately, the only other lounge you could access as a Gold frequent flyer would be the Thai Airways lounge over in T1, which also has no showers.

Thanks Chris

My only other thought is to make use of the Changi transit vouchers, which utilises the Ambassador Lounge. Only works one way, but better than no shower!

There are also three airside hotels which you can book (for a minimum of 6 hours, but nobody says you have to stay that long).

The Aerotel is the newest and has a pool and a small lounge, so here's the trick... its SGD$17 for 3 hours, and you can have a dip, use the showers, have a cup of coffee, and be on your way.

That's a great way to entertain the 6-year-old - thanks for that info, that's the way I will go I think!

According to the Star Alliance website Star Alliance Gold also allows access to the SATS Premier lounge in Changi if travelling in economy on SQ. I haven't visited the lounge but it does have showers and by all accounts is far superior to the Kris Flyer Gold Lounge.

Referencing Chris' earlier comment on the Thai lounge in Singapore, it's diabolical, so don't bother!

I'm afraid to say that the ambassador lounge / hotel no longer takes the Changi vouchers as I found out last night.

Cheapest bet is to use the pool only package at the Aerotel which has a shower facility attached.

Oh really? It says on the website they do - shame that

I've already told the little one about the possibility of a pool at the airport - hands down winner with him. Thanks for the update though
