In the few days that I was in Phuket, apparently the new Phuket international airport opened up, and so I was one of the first few to get a peep at The Coral Executive Lounge. I’m happy to report that it’s an above-average lounge!
Located just above the passport control area, the lounge oversees the shopping/dining gate area. The lounge is actually pretty small, but their food offering is above average. I visited the lounge twice, once in September and once in October, and they had a nice rotation of hot options for breakfast, which ranged from a bunch of stirfry noodle/rice type thing, to soft-shell crabs, to other proteins. They also put out a selection of pastries for breakfast, alongside juice. For those with a sweet tooth, they also have some small desserts in the fridge.
It’s pretty early in the morning both times I visited, so I’m pretty groggy, and can’t remember anything about alcohol. I recall beer on tap, but I’m sure you can find some other alcohol there. Coffee and tea selection was decent, as is the soda selection.
I think I saw someone getting a massage in the lounge. I’m not sure if it’s complimentary or not, but I guess it’s a nice service option to have, even if you have to pay for it?
Overall, while the lounge is small, it has a decent food selection, and good service.
