CONCLUSION

I visited this lounge before our morning flight to Kota Kinabalu and fortunately, there were not many guests yet when we came. Upon presenting my boarding pass and One World Sapphire card to the receptionist, she searched for my name on the guest list, put a mark on it and welcomed us to the lounge. This was probably the first time that I visited a lounge where my name was already written on the guests list. Cool! I thought that for a breakfast buffet, the food selection was extensive. Complimentary wifi was available and there were also shower rooms and prayer rooms. With friendly staff and great food, this lounge is definitely worth a visit.
