Cathay Pacific First Class Lounge – ‘The Wing’

Almost as soon as I sat down, I was being offered a drink by one of the roving lounge attendants. ‘Perrier please’ was my reply.

My first visit to the recently refurbished First Class part of the ‘The Wing’ was a joy. Cathay Pacific, who operate a number of lounges at the Hong Kong airport, have done a great design job.

The airport itself is bright and airy, and the lounge is an oasis of deep red, blacks, golds and silvers. It feels tranquil and very expensive.

Over-stuffed sofas, single chairs and plenty of power outlets combine business with luxury.

The seperate restaurant area is artful – a number of tables spread out on a black marble floor, contrast with the white of the linen in the table cloths and napkins.

The self service food offerings were great – brunch items were on offer – when I was there.

Shortly after I had lunch, I managed to secure one of the 6 cabanas available.

The original layout provided a nice bed space but I suspect people stayed too long. I would have welcomed a nap myself, but the redesign discourages this. Of course the staff try to discourage you from outstaying your welcome.

After my bath – come on, how can you not love a lounge where you can have a bath – I spent some more time lounging before nipping off for my flight to New York.
