Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge

Golden Lounge Photo, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

KL airport has a Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge that is a wonderful place to relax and unwind before your flight, or while waiting for your connection. This lounge is one of the nicest and largest ones I’ve been in. Almost every amenity you need, is there. Soothing colors and crisp, white tablecloths make this place very special.

The lounge is divided into two section: one for first class passengers and one for business class passengers. The sections are divided by frosted glass and a stream that runs through the room. There is a great view of the runways, and there are TVs, comfortable chairs and couches to relax, massage chairs, and a business center with free-Internet computers with free printing and fax services. The lounge offers wireless Internet if you prefer that, also.

The lounge has a place for kids to hang out in, called The Creative Kids’ Corner, that has toys, games, books, and a computer to keep kids busy for a while. A lifesaver for parents.

There are showers, a smoking room, and slumber rooms to shake off the long flight, as well as a HUGE buffet fit for a king. The buffet is set up in the middle of the room and offers both American and Malaysian hot and cold items. Pastas with different sauces, roasted meats, sandwiches, salads, appetizers, different kinds of bread, and of course, dessert. There is a self-serve bar, complete with Dom Perignon champagne and other alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, plus a coffee bistro. There is even a Muslim prayer room for those who need it.

Unfortunately, the lounge is only available to passengers flying first or business class, and I encourage those flying in the aforementioned classes to visit the lounge.
