The LoungeI was traveling through Hong Kong to Singapore and one of the pleasures of a layover in Hong Kong is the amazing lounges that Cathay maintains for First Class passengers. I first went to The Pier for breakfast and relaxation.
This is one of the best lounges in the world. It consistently comes in, in the top 10 and many times, the very top.
It is below the main terminal area, completely removed from the experience of being in the airport by a very non-descript entrance, has a dining area, snacks, reading lounges, massage, showers, private day suites, bar, and work spaces.
Dining AreaThe dining ara has a full sitdown service top quality wine and amazing gourmet food.
SnacksThere is a buffet/snacks area that carries sodas, food of many kinds, treats, and tea. It's for people who don't have time to sit down and order a meal. The food is good, just lacks the presentation value of the dining area.
BarThe bar, is great, they have signature cocktails, high end cognac, all the mixers you could want, and is just sitdown and ask for your poison. It's mostly great spirits, but they do have Skyy vodka as their top shelf in that area, and I'm gonna be frank, it does not meet my tastes for a clean cocktail.
SummaryThis is one of the best lounges in the world. I go out of my way to stay in Hong Kong longer to enjoy it. Very clean, serene and relaxing. The elegance is palpable.
