REVIEW – Thai Airways : Royal First Lounge, Bangkok (May 2015)

We were met at the gate by a TG agent, bearing a sign with our names on it. Unfortunately we did not get a buggy, instead we were walked to the lounge. K had really been looking forward to a buggy but I assured her there was a good chance we’d get the buggy from the lounge to the plane.

We were escorted from the reception area to the main lounge, where I requested one of the private rooms. The main lounge is a sprawling mass of chairs, similar to countless other business class lounges in the world. I’ve never really understood the obsession with this place.

Our private lounge offered a decent amount of privacy and managed to incorporate a dining area, lounge and workstation into quite a compact space

As soon as we sat down a server appeared offering us an iPad menu, this contained numerous pages of Western and Thai food options

I ordered grilled pork with chilli sauce and sticky rice. This was washed down with a perfect macchiato and a glass of what tasted like Moet.

This was absolutely fantastic. Simple but oh so effective.

After my light brunch I made my way to the Spa, where I had booked myself in for a complimentary 1hr massage. I was offered a ginger and lemongrass tea as well as a thick, hot towel; I was then given a health waiver to sign. You know, in case the massage was so intense that I suffered an attack of some sort.

The private spa treatment room came with a separate changing room. This featured L’Occitane amenities.

The massage was much better this time than on my last visit to the lounge. Last time I was literally shivering from how cold the aircon was and nothing could be done to fix it. This time I got a perfectly decent massage and left relaxed and ready for my flight.

After the massage I headed back to the Lounge to meet K and get our things ready for the flight home. Of course, I couldn’t resist having another macchiato and another glass of champagne
