After arriving from my flight from Tokyo, I headed to the SilverKris Lounge in terminal 3. Now the real fun begins as now the Star Alliance portion of my itinerary begins.
So the SilverKris Lounge is in terminal 3 a little towards the far end of it. There is clear signage all over the terminal so it is clear exactly where the in the terminal the lounge is.
I used my Thai business class ticket to be admitted into the lounge, and now let the 12-hour layover in Singapore begin.
Here’s who can access this lounge:
- Business Class passengers traveling on a Star Alliance Airline
- PPS/PPS Solitaire Club Members traveling on Singapore Airlines in Economy/Premium Economy (+1 Guest)
So There’s a business class and first class side of the lounge and I accessed the business class side. I entered the lounge around 1 AM and it was quite crowded. The lounge agent told me that these were all the passengers of SQ’s late night Europe bound flights and their 3AM flight to Johannesburg and Cape Town. After that the lounge was 99% empty except for me and a few others who were staying the night. Both of the SQ lounges in T2 and T3 are both 24 hours so it never closes. If you’ve been following my full journey up to this point, you can understand that I was definitely tired at this point. So I slept for a few hours and later on in this review I’ll show you exactly where. But I slept for a few hours and woke up in a completely empty lounge and started taking photos.
So upon entering the business class lounge you’ll see a wide amount of seats all around. A lot of the seats around the front side, however, have no power ports.
Here is what one of the seat pairs look like. While the seats were decent, lack of power ports was frustrating.
Then there were some longer sofas which had power ports along the middles.
As you walk down the lounge aisles, you’ll see many pockets of lounge seating
and some more seating. These seats didn’t have power ports either.
Neither did these seats. But there’s some magazines if you’d like.
And another row of sectioned off seating.
Towards the back of the lounge, There was a high table set up with nice design and chair set up.
Behind the divider there were drinks
First there was a cappuccino machine.
Then there were various teas.
And finally some alcoholic drinks.
And there was a beer dispenser and an ice machine.
Then there was a fridge with different non-alcoholic drinks.
Finally beyond that there is more seating beyond what we saw before. We are now deep into the lounge facing towards the bathrooms and entrance area, which we will revisit soon.
Power ports were not readily available at every seat which really sucks.
Only these seats along the walls would have power ports.
Finally this side of the lounge had power ports at every seats as they were along the wall and I used the seat below for resting for a few hours while the lounge was empty and being cleaned.
However these seats were pretty hard.
Now the time was around 5 AM and I was getting a bit hungry. So I headed over to the kitchen area for a bit. I walked by some more high top seating area.
and Below were long couches where others with long layovers slept as well.
Throughout the lounge there was great and fast wifi. Now I wasn’t streaming videos or anything so I can’t speak for that, but accessing social media, emails, my reservations, etc were all quick processes.
There was a large TV in the middle of the room which was featuring a live FIFA match earlier when the lounge was full, though now it’s been turned off.
I’ve covered nearly all the lounge and now only missing part is the bathrooms and food.
This was pretty much all the kitchen area and I’ll go through their breakfast selections that they had.
The foos pictures won’t be centered because I’ve included the food item and it’s name card to the side for convenience.
This was quite possibly the tastiest looking BBQ pork bun I’ve ever seen in my life.
And there were some Western options as well
There was a toaster as well
Then there were some condiments for the bread
Then there were some chilled breakfast items.
And some fruits as well all of which were tasty and fresh.
So there was a wide spread of food items definitely, but having sampled a lot of the items, the food in total was good, but nothing great. That might just be the nature of breakfast not having many of the exciting flavors that lunch and dinner have, but still it was a let down from what I was expecting from SQ. But I appreciate the variety of local and international items regardless.
Now the bathrooms are right at the front of the lounge just past the entrance and to the left. There are many stalls, sinks with amenities like the ones below, and showers.
Here is a video clip I took of what their showers look like. The facilities were clean, nice, well stocked, and overall great! Taking a shower felt refreshing after 24+ hours of travel (so far).
So after about 6 hours in the lounge I headed to the other SilverKris Lounge in terminal 2, but that’s for another trip report. Overall, I had a good time in the lounge and it was nice and decently fancy, but it felt lacking in some aspects. The food was good but not great. It took a while to find seats with power ports, and a lot of the seats were hard. But I definitely liked the variety of food, the showers, the staff, and the overall facilities were up to my standards of what I was expecting from SQ, so a well done job on that front.
