Located at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1, the Emirates Lounge’s entrance looks quite impressive, but after stepping inside, I personally find the interior design, rather dated.
Ignoring the decor, we explored the spacious area. There’re computers, television, magazines, most importantly, FOOD!
Food and beverage are presented buffet style and were replenished constantly. The variety and execution were above average.
For those who need to freshen up, you’ll be glad to find that the bathroom is of hotel standards, with lovely touches such as hand cream and plush towels.
Thanks to an attractive deal, we upgraded our seats to Business Class. Our first time, and hopefully not the last XD
The seats were so spacious and comfy, and service standards were excellent. Just look at the amount of legroom!
Despite downing a substantial amount of food during the buffet at the lounge, I still managed to finish the in-flight dinner as it was so yummy!
After dinner, it was time for a snooze. A crew member would “make the bed” for you. The seat can be full reclined, so that you can lie flat and have a comfortable sleep.
The lights were turned out, but it was not completely dark, as the ceiling transformed into a beautiful starry sky.
Breakfast was boring. I took comfort that the amenity kit was Bvlgari.
We stayed in Art on Olsen, a boutique hotel on Chapel Street. The hotel has a strong focus on art; our rooms even had a stack of art books. There’s plenty to eat and shop along Chapel Street, and the tram is just a stone’s throw away, so it’s very convenient to get around to other parts of Melbourne.
The most basic room is the Studio Suite, which is about 28 square meters. We preferred more space hence went for the Deluxe Studio Suite (35 square meters), complete with a small lounge area.
The kitchenette came in handy for preparing breakfast, especially on days we had to set off very early for day tours.
The bathroom spots a modern design with superb lighting (great for blind bats like me). I like the shelves behind the mirror, which allowed me to conveniently store my skincare and cosmetic products, without cluttering the vanity top.

When in Melbourne, one cannot miss visiting The Great Ocean Road.
