To cater for the Middle East’s busiest transport hub, the new airport lounge spans 1,260 square metres, with the capacity for up to 300 guests, making it the largest independent lounge at Terminal 3.
Situated on the upper level overlooking departure gates A2 and A3, the lounge features a desert and ocean inspired design.
Special features include four 10-square-metre family suites with dedicated multi-lingual butlers, a playroom with sustainable wooden toys for kids, and a first-class inspired private napping space comprising a row of the single-person relaxation seats with sliding doors.
Live cooking stations serve freshly-made food from locally-sourced ingredients, including kids meals and gluten-free options. There’s also a cigar lounge, and male and female prayer rooms.
Five shower rooms are available for guests to freshen up before a long-haul flight while Plaza Premium Lounge’s signature workstations are perfect for business travellers needing a private space.
Plaza Premium Group’s CEO Song Hoi-see says: “This is one of our strategic expansion plans in the region to introduce our Skytrax-winning Plaza Premium Lounge in Dubai, ensuring a complete departure-transit-arrival experience for our guests.
“We are now able to capture more than 15 million passengers passing through the airport terminal’s Concourse A every year.”
The Dubai lounge is the sixth Plaza Premium Lounge in the Middle East. The company also runs two lounges in the UAE’s Abu Dhabi airport, plus branches at Dammam and Riyadh airports in Saudi Arabia, and Salalah in Oman.
