I was given access to the Premier Lounge at Denpasar Ngurah Rai International Airport as a Thai Airways Silk Passenger. Once you pass through immigration screening you can locate the lounge with its large red sign to go one floor up. There were two pleasant receptionists that welcomed us and gave us a wi-fi log-in code upon arrival. Sweet!
It was a spacious lounge with plenty of seating and a wraparound terrace outside. The terrace overlooked the entrance to the departure terminal. I’m glad I was able to relax in a space away from the general crowd of passengers but unfortunately the lounge was also crowded and the wi-fi was sporadic and unreliable! Thankfully our wait for our departing flight was short.
The food was mediocre and often took a while to get replenished. I got excited seeing passengers getting massages in the small spa area. I couldn’t think of a better way to kill time since I couldn’t get connected to the internet. Sadly I was disappointed again to find out they were charging for spa services at a crazy price – no thank you! The cost of their 15-minute hand massage could have gotten me a 60-minute full body massage back in Seminyak!
We couldn’t wait to board our flight so we could get pampered and fed on the exceptional Thai Airways (See my review on Thai Airways in my next post!) We now know what to expect the next time we’re traveling through Denpasar Airport.
