Lounge Review: Guam (GUM) Sagan Bisita Lounge, 05 February 2017

Guam Airport Sagan Bisita Lounge

Where: Main Terminal, Opposite Gate 7

Hours: 12.00 am – 10.00 am; 1.00 pm – 5.00 pm

The Sagan Bisita Lounge is a small-ish L-shaped lounge with a lot of sofa seating. There are no tarmac views, but it is an adequate lounge. I spent an hour there during my layover from Palau to Narita, and was there in the wee hours of the morning. I accessed it via my Priority Pass Select, compliments of Citi Prestige.

So, groggy review alert! (Yes, I have other priorities in life)

Food/Drinks

Even for the wee hours of the morning, there were some breakfast foods on offer. There were eggs, some sort of meat, baked beans, and instant noodles (amongst others). I only noticed the eggs because I went to the bathroom, and came back to see my friend with a plate of eggs. She apparently has special talent to find eggs anywhere in the world!

There was a decent alcohol selection. At the end, there was also a fridge stocked with all sorts of soft drinks. I believe I had an iced tea.

Bathroom/Shower

The bathroom was a bit dim, but otherwise, clean. No complaints.

Wifi/Power Outlet

There was some wifi, and it was ok. I believe there was also a power outlet by the sofa I sat.

Overall

It’s a perfectly ok lounge for stopover. It has sufficient food/beverages/wifi to keep you happy, and I had a great nap on the couch.

To the Islands: Guam, Palau, Tokyo – the Non-Survivor Edition, 29 Jan – 07 Feb 2017

Palau

I’ve actually never watched Survivor, but Palau is on my list, because it’s a miles&points redemption dream. It’s one of those places that’s so close (~2000 miles from Singapore as the crow flies), yet so expensive (over 1000 USD) and hard to get to (multiple stops).

Enter United miles. Palau is in the same region as Japan and Korea, making it a cheap redemption (12,500 miles one way for economy saver). It’s not often that one can get over 500 usd for a 12,500 mile redemption. Ok, in reality I paid 50,000 United miles because while waiting for my friend to confirm, economy saver availability went away, and I ended up taking business class saver one way, and economy standard the other way.

Anyway, here goes my island-hopping itinerary!

29 January 2017: Singapore to Haneda (on Japan Airlines Business Class redeye for 25,000 Alaska Miles)

30 January 2017: Narita to Guam (on United Airlines Business class, priced as a free stopover, 25,000 miles)

31 January 2017: Guam

01 February 2017: Guam to Palau (on United Airlines Business class)

02 February 2017: Palau

03 February 2017: Palau

04 February 2017: Palau to Narita (redeye, United Airlines)

05 February 2017: Tokyo

06 February 2017: Tokyo

07 February 2017: Tokyo – Singapore (Delta, I paid for it, and got 5,000 Alaska miles from the flight)
