3 Days In Singapore: A Visit to the Private Room Lounge at SIN

By  | 

We made it back from the Singapore Night Safari only 30 minutes later than scheduled (despite a cab queue an hour long) and I was soon slinging things into my suitcase and hustling out of our awesome Hyatt Suite to catch a cab to the airport.

Even leaving at 11:30PM, I still had plenty of time to catch my 2AM flight, but I wanted time to check out Singapore Airline’s First Class lounge. Unfortunately I was so anxious from having rushed from the zoo that the first part of my arrival was a bit of a blur (and obviously no pictures).

The cab pulled up in front of a discrete entrance just for Singapore Airlines First Class. It wasn’t quite the opulence of Lufthansa’s First Class Terminal in Frankfort, but it was definitely a step up from the busyness of Thai Airline’s First Class doors in Bangkok.

From there I was escorted in and seated at a desk with an agent (Thai has the whole seating you somewhere with tea & cool towels and disappearing with your passport to reappear with your tickets advantage). After fumbling finding my passport they had me checked in in about 2 minutes.

Still dazed I followed their directions to immigration and security. Emerging to find it was a dedicated, delightfully empty, First Class line.

I was through in minutes. And then stopped to gather myself and look at the invitation to Singapore Airlines’ The Private Room Lounge. 🙂 The Private Room is within the First Class Lounge and only for passengers flying in Singapore Airlines First Class.

I made my way through the Business Class Lounge, through the First Class Lounge, finally arriving at The Private Room.

I was escorted to a seat in the lounge, and then presented with a menu. I chose satay and dim sum, and they came to get me when it was ready. I’d assumed they’d bring it to my chair, but instead I was brought to the dining room to dine.

It was a great over-the-top experience, although the satay at the Hawker stall was better 🙂

Once done I checked out the bathroom and tried to fix my hair which was crazy from the humidty and rushing.

Back at my seat I decided I did want a glass of champagne and they quickly brought it and there I had an awesome surprise! I was getting to try Grande Dame for the first time!

It is tasty, tho Dom is still my favorite, and perhaps Krug was still ahead by a hair. At this point I realized they were already boarding my flight so I hurriedly tossed down half of it and headed to the gate.

I am SOOO excited I got to check out the Private Room and I hope to return again soon. That said, the First Class Terminal in Frankfort and the Thai First Class Lounge/Spa in Bangkok still trump.

    Excellent narrative and I am going to visit the private room in November, so I really appreciated this. One side comment is that I have gone through the entire “3 Days in Singapore” narrative; half the time the link (at the bottom of the page) to the next installment (e.g Next Post: SIN-DME) is broken forcing one to go back to the header index.
