Where is it?

The Qantas Lounge is located in the transit hall in the central terminal building, on level 7 next to the large food court, not far from gate 15.

If you start your journey in Hong Kong you make an immediate right turn after the security control and passport control (do not descent any escalators) and you will find the entrance just around the corner.

If you are in transit in Hong Kong, head for transfer area East which is the closest one to the lounge. The entrance is one level above the gate areas.

How do I get in?

Standard OneWorld access rules apply which means access is given to business class or first class passengers with Qantas or OneWorld as well as OneWorld Sapphire and Emerald members travelling the same day with Qantas or another OneWorld carrier.

What’s it like?

The lounge opened in 2014, replacing the old separate first class and business class lounges with a single (and much larger) lounge for all premium passengers.

The Hong Kong lounge was the second lounge to get the new Qantas lounge design which is quite elegant in mostly grey and dark brown colours and with design details in wood. The lounge is located on a balcony overlooking the gate areas and the apron and is quite spacious.

As you enter the lounge you follow a long corridor which is parallell with the terminal pier. The lounge is divided into different sections which are effectively different rooms, all with its own design, furniture and purpose.

After the lobby with the reception desk you will first find the manned bar where you can order wine, beer and cocktails. As you follow the corridor further down the lounge there are several seating areas on both sides, with a quiet area on the right hand side.

The next section is the self-service buffet on the right hand side with a large dining area on the opposite side with chairs and tables.

Finally, as you reach the end of the lounge (on the complete opposite end from the entrance) you will find a business centre, a service desk, a play area for children, a smaller self-service bar and several seating areas.

Food and drinks

The large self-service buffet area offers a wide range of hot dishes, cold cuts, salads and snacks. Wine, beer and soft drinks are also available for self-service in this area.

Additional dining options are available starting in the late afternoon and during the evening in connection with the Qantas departures to Australia, including hot starters and a few extra main courses. Many of the dishes have been created by Australian chef Neil Perry.

The manned bar just after the reception has a much larger selection of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including beer on tap, several wines and cocktails. The signature cocktail of the lounge is called Chi Chi with vodka as main ingredient.

Facilities

Wireless internet is available throughout the lounge and there are internet computes in the business centre where there are also printers.

Restrooms and several shower rooms are available. There are also several TVs in the lounge and a play area for children.

There is also a great apron view from most of the lounge.

Final impression

A large, spacious and rather impressive lounge with plenty of facilities, a manned cocktail bar and plenty to eat and drink.
