There are three lounges at the NAIA Terminal 1 which Star Alliance gold members can have access to: Silver Kris Lounge, Thai Airways Lounge and Asiana Airlines Lounge although I have not been to the Asiana Lounge so I cannot confirm it. Nevertheless, this lounge is definitely the best among the three according to Mr. Jerby who was in charge of the lounge during my visit. He also informed me that they had a separate area for first and business class passengers until last year when they decided to just have one for both.

With friendly staff, very good selection of food and cool ambience, this is definitely worth visiting in case you have access to it.
