Cathay Pacific has long been known for its highly regarded portfolio of lounges at its hub at Hong Kong International airport.
The airline has today reopened the first class lounge at The Pier.
Designed by London based agency Studioilse (who also designed the recently refurbished lounges at Tokyo Haneda and Bangkok) the lounge is a continuation of Cathay Pacific’s brand strategy “Life Well Travelled”.
In contrast to the stark white marble of Cathay’s previous lounges, the lounge is designed around the concept of a residential apartment to offer a “home away from home” concept to passengers.
This is reflected in the choice of green onyx walls and walnut and bronze screens and soft lighting.
Lounge features include:
The Retreat Eight day suites, each furnished with a daybed, reading light, mirror and curatins for privacy and 14 showers, furnished with natural limestone and timber.
The Dining Room A la carte dining for 100 passengers at a time.
The Pantry “Grab and go” items from a breakfast and an all-day menu.
The Bar A serviced bar offering wines and cocktails.
The Library Intended for reading and relaxing.
The Bureau A home office environment with six Apple iMac computers.
On top of all that, the lounge also has a bespoke fragrance.
The lounge is located at Gate 63 in the North West concourse and has capacity for 231 guests in total.
The Pier First Class Lounge is open to First Class passengers, Cathay Pacific Diamond Marco Polo Club members, and Emerald oneworld alliance frequent flyer programme members who are departing or transiting in Hong Kong. Opening hours are from 5:30am until the last departing flight of the day.
It is understood that the business class lounge at The Pier will be shortly refurbished. Cathay Pacific’s London Heathrow lounges will also be shortly refurbished and extended.
