The LoungeI was sitting in the Miracle Lounge in the Bangkok airport and let's just say it was intensely underwhelming, so as soon as the Qatar lounge opened, I - holding a business class ticket on Malaysia Airlines - opted to go see what this one was all about.
On the lounge level (one below departures) in the middle of the airport, stands a very imposing door with no windows or visibility of the interior. The sign outside clearly states you need a business or first class ticket to get in.
Dining AreaThe two dining areas are actually the primary focus of this lounge. General sitting for waiting is kind of limited (maybe 30 seats?), but dining has about 40-50 seats.

Shower FacilitiesThere are showers, and I will assume they are pretty nice. I was in a rush, and I had just showered since I left the hotel that day. It's a safe bet in a lounge of this level that it's going to be good.
SummaryI had seen this lounge over the past few years but when I was flying in and out of BKK I hadn't tried before. This time I was super pleased. The focus really is on dining and man, what dining. The alcohol is insane too, which I find intensely odd for a lounge designed around people going to Qatar, a dry country.
Very comfortable temp and sound wise, you feel a complete world apart. The level of service (there were 7 people on duty that I just saw, for what really is a smaller lounge) is absolutely at the top of the heap. In my experience in this airport, which is considerable, this is the best lounge there.
