Lounge Istanbul Ataturk Airport : One of the Top Airport Lounges in the World!

Lounge Istanbul, located at the departure terminal of Ataturk Aiport in Turkey, is the largest airport lounge that we’ve ever been to. Having been to the SATS, Dnata, KrisFlyer Gold Lounge and China Airlines Dyanasty Lounge, Lounge Istanbul is certainly an eye-opener for us. Let’s find out what makes Lounge Istanbul one of the top airport lounges in the world!


About Lounge Istanbul at Ataturk Airport Turkey

Spanning almost 6000m2 (WHAT?!), Lounge Istanbul boasts of several amenities that we have not seen before, including a self-service baggage storage area, a pool table, a golf simulator, a miniature virtual car rally and many drinks and food points all around the lounge! It is also able to accommodate 1000 guests at any point in time!

What we enjoyed about Lounge Istanbul at Ataturk Airport Turkey

When we first entered Lounge Istanbul, we were very impressed by its decorations. We then found out that it is one of the largest airport lounges in the world. Here are some of the things we enjoyed about the lounge.

1. Decorations with different themes. As you can see from the pictures above, there are many different themes in and around the lounge. You can choose to chill at the classy and elegant area of the lounge, enjoy some coffee and desserts at the cafe themed area or lounge at many of the comfortable seats across the Istanbul Lounge!

2. Many different and unique amenities. Unlike the usual lounges that only offers food, publications and internet, Lounge Istanbul offers many firsts for us including

– A Golf Simimulator
– Miniature race rally course
– Pool Table
– Cinema
– Library
– Suites
– Massages
– Children’s Playroom

3. Sheer Size. As Kate mentioned, the Istanbul Lounge is so huge that it’s better to first find a seat before heading to check out the amenities. Otherwise, you’ll have trouble finding each other within the lounge!

True story.

China Airlines Dynasty Lounge @ Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport

China Airlines Dynasty Lounge was one of the lounges we’ve visited during our Taiwan Trip in 2014. With the ANZ Travel Credit Card, we were able to have complimentary (aka FREE!) entry into the China Airlines Dynasty Lounge located at Terminal 1 and 2 of the Taoyuan International Airport.

What we enjoyed at China Airlines Dynasty Lounge Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport

1. Separating dining and lounge area. The cool thing about this lounge is that there is an automated door that separates the lounge area from the dining area. This ensures that the smells of the food keeps contained within the dining area as far as possible. Nice touch by China Airlines.

2. Noodle Bar. To make the dining experience more enjoyable, there is a noodle bar that serves up Taiwanese noodles including beef noodles, noodles with pork broth, noodles with minced meat in sweet bean paste sauce and rice noodles with pork in soup. If you happen to miss any of these yummy local delicacies during your trip to Taiwan, this would be an excellent opportunity to “catch up” on these noodles!

What we liked about KrisFlyer Gold Lounge at Terminal 3

There are a few things that we enjoyed about the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge.

1. Tapping your own beer. At the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge, you’re able to tap your own Tiger beer using frosted mugs that have been chilled in the fridge. You can even control the amount of head that you want for your beer!

2. Classy ambience. Compared to the SATS and Dnata lounges that we have visited previously, KrisFlyer Gold Lounge certainly exudes class and elegance in its decor.

Have you been to the SilverKris Lounge at Terminal 2 and 3? Although the name sounds less classy as comapred to KrisFlyer Gold Lounge, it is actually only available to Suites, First Class, Business Class and PPS members flying with Singapore Airlines.
