How to get comfortable at Singapore’s Changi Airport
Singapore’s Changi Airport, where Air Niugini flies five times a week, is one of the world’s best when it comes to relaxation facilities, thanks to terminals filled with a range of spas, massage chairs, two airport hotels, a swimming pool, gyms and unique Snooze Lounges offering recliners similar to those in first and business class airline cabins.
Pay-per-use lounges found in each of Changi’s terminals are ideal if you don’t qualify for a business class airline lounge.
The Ambassador Transit Lounge, for example, in T2 has a shower, lounge, food and a bar with drinks included in the price, and gym. Entry to the Ambassador Transit Lounge costs $S58 for five hours per adult.
If you want some fresh air, sunlight and a bit of exercise, Changi has a rooftop swimming pool as well as a jacuzzi in T1. This costs
$ S17 for the use of the pool, reading area with books, showers and a range of non- alcoholic drinks. T1 and T2 also have 24-hour gymnasiums.
For those who want something a tad more relaxing, there are eight massage and spa salons inside Changi with the latest addition being the Heaven on Earth in T2. Or, if you’re after a complete retreat, check into either Aerotel Transit Hotel in T1 or the Ambassador Transit Hotel in T2 and T3, which has bedrooms with televisions in rooms overlooking the airport, and even a wake-up call service. ■ If you’re travelling to Singapore, don’t miss our city guide starting on page 56. — BRONWEN GORA
