Having visited the ANA Suite Lounge in Tokyo Narita a few years ago, I had more or less an idea on what to expect visiting this lounge. The usual offering of hot towel and taking the drinks order was there. I thought the food on the buffet were extensive (as per Japanese standard 😉) as well as the drinks selection. This lounge is actually much smaller than the ANA Suite Lounge located near gate 110 although during the time I was there, it did not get crowded so it was okay. The staff were very nice and polite as always. The Shiseido bath products, my favorite bath products in a first class lounge was a big plus since not many airlines offer exclusive products in their first class lounges. For comparison, THAI Royal First Lounge offers L'Occitane, Lufthansa First Class Lounge offers ETRO Relent and Qatar Airways Al Safwa Lounge offers Rituals. Some airlines like Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Emirates do not offer individual bottles of bath products and which I hope could be improved in the future 😉 Overall, I really enjoyed my short stay in this lounge and even if it does not offer an hour-long complimentary massage the way THAI Airways do in Bangkok nor does it have the extravagant architecture of Qatar Airways Al Safwa Lounge in Doha, the ANA Suite Lounge will always be one of my favorite first class lounges.
