Malaysa Airlines Regional Lounge; Blues Lounge
KUALA LUMPUR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (KLIA)
The regional lounge reopened in October 2017 after a two-month refurbishment – a taste of what Malaysia Airlines hopes all its major lounges will become.
It’s a comfortable, spacious place with great food and drink, free wifi, and several areas where you can relax or work. There’s also a nap area with three lounging beds for men and three for women, in separate rooms. You place your boarding pass in an acrylic holder so staff can wake you up, though I’d be inclined to set an alarm as well.
Next to this is a prayer room and the washrooms, which include some good shower cubicles. I asked for (and received) razor and toothbrush kits. The overall design is intended to reflect the Malacca Chinese and Malay heritage of Malaysia, with “fusion” cuisine designed to cater to both local taste buds and foreign visitors.
A barista-manned coffee bar area also offers sandwiches and a popular waffle station. Live cooking stations serve up fresh noodles and pasta, and there is also a signature laksa bar. The complimentary drinks bar is open from 0500 to 2400.
First class and Malaysia Platinum passengers have use of a first class area and VIP room, though note this is not for Emerald cardholders.
WHO CAN ACCESS?
Malaysia Airlines Business Class, Enrich Platinum members, Enrich Gold members and eligible Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald Passengers whose flights depart from the Main Terminal of KLIA.
Excellent. I’m looking forward to seeing this design in the new International Lounge.
