First impression: this is a very nice and cozy lounge. It was still pretty empty when we came but more passengers came later during our visit.

I love the chandeliers matching the sofas.

Relaxing chairs


Dining area

The buffet area with hot and cold offerings.

Work & Entertainment

Business corner with three computers. Wifi connection was also free.

TV and magazines

Toilet and Shower Room

The toilet and shower rooms were always kept clean.


I didn't expect this lounge to be that nice to be honest but maybe it was because I haven't been to any Plaza Premium Lounge before so I really didn't know what to expect. I actually enjoyed my short stay here. The food was really good and the staff were very friendly. A must visit lounge when in Male International Airport.
