After a sleep filled flight from Bangkok to Seoul, we had eight hours to kill  at the airport We decided that the best place to do that would be in the Asiana First Class lounge. We arrived at 6 AM and our departure was around 2 PM. Upon arrival in the lounge we found many open sections. Although there were a few people in the lounge maybe 8, it was so large that it felt incredibly empty. In fact there was not one time that I ever felt crowded. It was an incredible departure from the Thai business class lounge we were at in Bangkok and most lounges in the US. Then again it’s a first class lounge, and you have to be flying on one of the Star Alliance first class flights to have access.

The lounge is very large and must have a huge capacity, but I really wonder how much use it does get since there’s a limited amount of first class flights at the Asiana hub. Even though the lounge is designed in dark wood tones and features a library like feel, but because one whole side of the lounge is covered in shaded windows it really has an open airy feel. I would say it’s a very classy design, and not over the top, but if I had to rank it, it’s probably in the top 5 of where I’ve been, but Lufthansa’s First Class Lounge in Frankfurt, Quanta First Class Sydney, Cathay’s fleet of lounges in Hong Kong and Singapore Airlines Private Room would be better. Don’t get me wrong it’s nice, just very understated.

 The offered many smaller intimate sections so when you had a long layover like us, you had space to spread out, and you didn’t feel like a jerk since it was so quiet.

They had a pretty decent food selection too. With breakfast items in the morning and lunch/dinner in the afternoon. Plus they had a noodle menu that you could order off of, which was the only made to order items available. Since my clock was so screwed up, I only had ramen, during our stay but the food looked fine. They also offered a mid-level selection of sprints, beer and wine. Sorry no JW Blue (rumored to be served here) but other ok options.

One of these tiny ice creams cost $10 USD at our hotel in Koh Samui. Ouch.

Nothing beats spicy ramen and Bailey’s and coffee

 

They also offered shower rooms that made for a refreshing morning. If you’ve never taken a shower at an airport you’re missing out. There’s something about getting refreshed before or after a long flight that can’ be beat.

I freaking love love love Asian toilets

Overall this was a nice lounge, not the best but definitely better than a poke in the eye or roaming the airport for 8 hours. It was not opulent, but was quiet and relaxing.
