Singapore Airlines has some of the most luxurious seats in the world, and even though the airline didn’t win this year’s title for being the best airline in the world (unlike prior years), Singapore Airlines is nothing short of amazing. Those who have a first class ticket can embark on their journey in a mini-hotel room in the sky, whereas those with a business class ticket can enjoy sleeping in a double bed. Both cabins are designed to make you feel exclusive, yet there’s an even bigger perk of flying in First Class or the First Class Suites and that’s spending time in the Private Room, one of the most private Singapore Airlines lounges located in Singapore International Airport.
In order to find the lounge, you must first go through the business class SilverKris Lounge, then through the First Class Lounge, and then again into the third and final lounge, the Private Room. This lounge (including the business and first class lounges) will be upgraded by 2021, with completely new furniture and colors such as the signature Singapore Airlines gold mixed in with ocean blue, grey, brown and purple.
Due to the fact that only a few customers fly in first class or in the suites, the lounge doesn’t get overcrowded, allowing you to find the perfect space for dining, working or relaxing, a breeze. The Private Room is one long room with seats spread throughout, all of which are chairs—unfortunately, there are no loungers or chaise seats. Even in the mini-closed-off private rooms (yes, there are private rooms inside the Private Room), there are no daybeds or loungers. Will the upgraded Singapore Airlines Private Room feature better chairs for catching some shut-eye? We can only hope.
Singapore Airlines Private Room also offers two areas with large TV screens to watch the latest news or sports event, a private family room designated for those flying with children featuring a changing table, sink, and chairs for adults and kids, all of which is completely closed off. For those who want to refresh before or in-between flights can utilize the showers equipped with luxurious towels and Spa Espirit Plantation hair and body products. Although you can sit down and work anywhere in the Singapore Airlines Private Room lounge, there are not any desks aside from the small business station with two Apple computers. If you need a workspace (and the business section is occupied), we recommend heading to the dining room, which is one of the most beloved spaces in the entire lounge.
Singapore Airlines Private Room dining area is comfortable, classy and designed with the first class passenger in mind. The upgraded version will have marble floors mixed with blue carpet, white tablecloth table setup (same as now), gold and silver wall decor and a drink station to grab your favorite wine, liquor, champagne or non-alcoholic beverages. Currently, there’s a buffet and an a la carte menu option that changes often and can include local cuisines such as seafood crispy noodles or duck leg confit to Western cuisines such as Basked Chilean Seabass papillote or capellini with wild mushroom ragout and truffle oil. Singapore Airlines has made it clear that the new Private Room dining experience will be even better than it ever has been before.
