Singapore Airlines' new first, business class lounges at Hong Kong airport

Singapore Airlines will re-open its SilverKris first class and business class lounge at Hong Kong International Airport tomorrow, October 31st, with a new 'Home Away From Home' design based on that of the airline's Sydney Airport lounge (seen in the photos below).

The lounge's 913 m2 footprint is carefully divided into a number of distinct personal spaces designed after elements of a home.

Travellers will also welcome the inclusion of three shower suites – something the old lounge noticeable lacked. The spacious suites feature an overhead 'rain shower' and toilet.

There are also 'productivity pods' with work desks, AC and USB power...

... plus a tended bar serving wines, spirits and cocktails (and yes, you can order a Singapore Sling).

The SilverKris Lounge at Hong Kong is open from 6.15am to 11.30pm for business and first class passengers, PPS Club and Kris Flyer Gold members and their Star Alliance equivalents, as well as Virgin Australia's Velocity Platinum and Gold card-holders.

    The productivity pods look like a good idea.

    Great news! I thought the previous SQ lounge was dreadful. Looking forward to trying it out next week!

    Well I was there yesterday.

    It's somewhat improved to what was there before, the food serving area has been re-arranged and the new chairs & pods look ok.

    The one thing that really pissed me off was, how many times in a half an hour can you listed to the Eagles "Hotel California"? The music loop seemed to be so short that the music was constantly being repeated.
