Dubai, United Arab Emirates-Wednesday 22 January 2020 [ AETOS Wire ]

 Highlights of Plaza Premium Lounge Dubai:

  • 1,260-square-metre Plaza Premium Lounge Dubai with a maximum capacity of 300 guests, the largest independent pay-per-use airport lounge at Terminal 3 in the busiest transit hub in the Middle East
  • Special features:  Four Family Suites, dedicated Playroom, “first-class” enclosed private napping space, cigar lounge, male and female prayer rooms

“Dubai is a city known for its ancient and modern attractions as well as a world-class destination for leisure, business and events, attracting nearly 16 million tourists in 2018. With concourse A expecting annual capacity of 19 million and Expo 2020 coming in October, expanding our award-winning Plaza Premium Lounge into Dubai is our promise to make travel better for millions of travellers departing Dubai International,” shares Song Hoi See, Founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Group.  “The airport is also a popular transit hub connecting Asia and Europe, our lounge at Terminal 3 will become popular for transit travellers to enjoy a relaxing moment.”   

Situated on the upper level overlooking departure gates A2 and A3, the lounge resembles a balcony sweeping with natural lights from the airport’s high ceilings.  Guests unwinding at the lounge can appreciate the apron views while watching the movement of travellers on the walkways underneath.

Ocean and sand movement throughout the interior inspired by Dubai’s unique landscape

Hong Kong-based designer Kinney Chan incorporated elements to interpret the waves of desert and ocean in movements.  Beginning at the reception is a blue backdrop portraying Dubai’s city skyline, while rounded corners applied throughout the space exhibit the idea of sand dunes, and feature walls mimic the movement of sands in the wind. 

Family friendly and private space available for small groups

Plaza Premium Lounge Dubai is the only airport lounge at the terminal to offer four 10-square-meter Family Suites catering to the needs of big families or small groups with the inclusion of services by a team of multi-lingual butlers who speak Arabic, Russian, Hindi, Tagalog and Turkish.  Travellers opting for the Family Suite will also enjoy Arabic coffee and dates, and welcome drinks.  As part of the brand’s promise to promote family-friendliness and sustainability, the new family-friendly feature Playroom – the only dedicated kids’ zone at the terminal – is highlighted by colourful murals of camels, palm trees and iconic buildings in Dubai, the perfect spot for families to keep children entertained with educational and sustainably made toys by international toy brand Masterkidz while parents enjoy some “time-off”.

“First-class” cabin seats as private napping space

Five shower rooms are available for guests to freshen up before a long-haul flight while business travellers needing a private space find Plaza Premium Lounge’s signature honeycomb workstations to conduct last minute business calls.  A unique feature added are the single-person, in-flight cabin lookalike relaxation seats with sliding door to convert the personal space into a private napping area.

Bar, cigar lounge and glocal cuisine

Appreciating the local culture, AeroBar is an enclosed space with feature walls illustrating a modernised take on the movement of sand and wind and includes a dedicated entry to a cigar lounge.  Following the brand’s “go green” culinary approach to reduce carbon footprint and to support the local community, the lounge presents a “glocal” cuisine freshly made in live cooking station with ingredients sourced locally to create Arabic, Asian and International cuisines.  A range of must-try, signature Arabic dishes include Sumak Hara (Local fish baked with flavored spices, bell pepper and tomato sauce), Emirati Majboos Dejaaj (Slow cooked combination of chicken, rice, spices and vegetable medley), Bamia Bil Laaham (Meat and okra cooked in rich tomato sauce) in addition to Asian flavors Pescado Encocado (Fish filet cooked in coconut, spices, lemon grass and bell pepper), Nasi Goreng with Satay (Stir fried rice with meat, vegetables and peanut-marinated chicken skewer) and Butter Chicken (Marinated chicken tikkas cooked in a rich sauce of ghee, onions, tomatoes and cream).  Specially designed menus for kids and infants are also available in addition to gluten-free options on request for travellers with special dietary requirements.  Knowing travellers look to keep hydrated and nourished prior to onward journeys, the lounge introduces Hydration Station with fruit-infused drinks such as Citrus and Mint, Blueberries and Mint, Cucumber and Mint, and Mixed Berries and Mint.

Dubai lounge is the sixth Plaza Premium Lounge in the Middle East, joining existing locations in Abu Dhabi (two), Dammam, Riyadh and Salalah. It is also the latest addition to the brand’s global network of more than 70 locations in Greater China, Asia Pacific, Americas, Europe and India.
