Hi There!

Welcome to my blog.

I love cities - glam - airlines  -  and photography.  All of the images on this site were taken by me on my travels around the planet.

I can't wait to have you come on some of my adventures!

 

Singapore Airlines SilverKris Business Lounge Review – London (LHR)

Singapore Airlines SilverKris Business Lounge Review – London (LHR)

Singapore Airlines has some of the most revered business class lounges in the world – and their SilverKris in London is one of their crown jewels.

This lounge has it all:  a magnificent bar, an extensive buffet, lux seating and premium shower facilities.

Here is a review of my recent visit:

Seating

I was in the lounge around lunch-time – and it was completely empty.  I had no problems finding a seat.  I actually felt like Goldie Locks as I sampled several before I settled on what was the best.

My favorite – a custom made seat that emulates their business class product.  It looked like it belonged on a space ship.  Each seat had:  a built in wall that promoted privacy; a built in table for work or dining; and comfy, quilted leather seats.  The only thing missing was a seat belt!

After securing my seat I made a b-line to the bar and buffet! 

I gravitated to the magnificent bottle of chilled French champagne.  There was also a huge offering of spirits, Japanese sakes and wines.  I had to pace myself though as I had plans to visit the United Lounge later in the day!

Singapore Airlines always has fantastic food – and the lounge in London is no exception. 

The selection included all kinds of salads, sandwiches, rolls, cheeses, and smoked meats – and that was just on the cold side. 

The hot table showcased fried noodles, quiches, dim sum, Asian appetizers, and surprisingly: tacos (It was a special that day since it was a Tuesday!). 

The lounge even had a desert table with a huge spread of elegant mousses, cakes, tarts, and bars.  Needless to say – this was not a good day to diet!

I had no problem zipping into the showers right away.   

The facilities were mod and hip with floor to ceiling granite and marble everywhere. Every detail was addressed:  grooming products, razors, and even a towel warmer!  A rain shower ensured I emerged relaxed and ready for the flights ahead of me.

Singapore Airlines knows how to service their premium travelers!

Superb Drinks | Fab Food | A Luxe Environment.   I almost didn’t want to leave the lounge when it was ready to board my flight!

The SilverKris Lounge at Heathrow is simply a marvelous place to relax and pamper oneself before a long haul, overseas flight!  I can’t wait until I ‘m back.
