Oh, rightthe actual amenities. This SilverKris lounge is humongous; it's so large that during our visit, which coincided with the men's final of the Australian Open, a whole viewing party was happening (complete with boos, claps and cheers) in one corner, and we only realized it when we finally got up and circled around the place to head out to our boarding gate.
Chilling and eating: There's a variety of seating areas, ranging from leather chairs with views over the terminal to bar-height seating at lengthy, chic tables. A dining area transitions to a cozier seating area still appropriate for eating, to work areas, to quieter and lower areas appropriate for catching a quick nap or reading in peace. We opted to be close to the self-serve buffet, which included cold dishes (fruit salads, yogurts, sushi, etc) and full hot entrees (noodles, curries, seafood). Don't miss the bread and cheese area either, because we spotted like 6 cheeses and 3 types of butter. Naturally there's also beer on tap, a variety of red and white wines, champagne and harder alcohol, and cappuccino/espresso/coffee machines around.
The bathrooms: So glorious. We never thought we'd be able to say that about airport bathrooms, but the SilverKris thrones are lovely. The lighting is flattering, the showers (of which there are about 5 for each sex) are spotless and large, and the little extra amenities are plentiful.
WiFi: Free, fast and easy to connect. None of that get-a-free-account-from-the-info-desk business that happens throughout the rest of Changi Airport. There's also plenty of wall outlets around the lounge.
Our favorite part: Space. When you walk in and get settled, take a look around and notice that each chair has a certain bubble of luxurious space around it. This is accomplished by putting sidetables next to every seat, or making the banquettes and bars extra long. When you're about to spend many hours in a planeno matter how wide the seatsall the extra breathing room beforehand is quite appreciated.
Access: Open 24 hours! Access is granted to those with Singapore Airlines Business Class tickets. First/Suites class flyers have their own lounge. Sorry, Star Alliance Gold membersyou're not allowed in here unless you're holding a Biz Class ticket. Just before you hit the SilverKris lounge is actually another loungethe KrisFlyer Gold Loungejust for you.
