I flew on Singapore Airlines’ business class from Hong Kong to Singapore, granting me access to Singapore Airlines’ Siliverkris Business Lounge in Hong Kong International Airport. The Singapore Airlines SilverKris Business Lounge is pretty large, and has four areas. The food and drinks offered were excellent.
Upon entry, there’s a small sitting area with some sofas and laptop stands. I guess if you are short on time, this would be the spot for you to get some work done, while waiting for your flight. Going beyond the bathroom/showers, you’ll get to the main area, which is divided into three main segments.
First, there’s there bar and dining area, with some bar stools, and tables and chairs for dining. To the left of the bar counter is the entrance to the first class lounge. There’s a buffet with an excellent offering right behind the bar.
Beyond the dining area, is a general lounging area, where there’s seating for groups. And at the far end of the lounge, there’s individual seating, so for those looking for some quiet and privacy to get some work done, you can sit in those individual booths.
The food and drinks offering in the lounge was excellent. There were some stir-fried starches, fried chicken, salads, desserts, and even haagen dazs ice cream in the fridge! I didn’t have breakfast, so I went to town on the buffet.
There were also two cooked-to-order dishes on offer – laksa and fishball noodles. The servers went around proactively taking orders from lounge patrons. I ordered the fishball noodle, which was excellent.
I also had some champagne (Chandon Moet for business class), and a fruity mocktail, which was excellent.
All in all, service, food and drinks in this lounge were all great! My only complaint is that there were only three bathroom stalls in the female bathroom, and one of them was out of order. When the lounge got crowded, it did lead to a bit of a wait from time to time.
