Singapore Airlines SilverKris Business Lounge Review – London (LHR)
Singapore Airlines has some of the most revered business class lounges in the world – and their SilverKris in London is one of their crown jewels.
This lounge has it all: a magnificent bar, an extensive buffet, lux seating and premium shower facilities.
Here is a review of my recent visit:
I was in the lounge around lunch-time – and it was completely empty. I had no problems finding a seat. I actually felt like Goldie Locks as I sampled several before I settled on what was the best.
My favorite – a custom made seat that emulates their business class product. It looked like it belonged on a space ship. Each seat had: a built in wall that promoted privacy; a built in table for work or dining; and comfy, quilted leather seats. The only thing missing was a seat belt!
Food and Beverage
After securing my seat I made a b-line to the bar and buffet!
I gravitated to the magnificent bottle of chilled French champagne. There was also a huge offering of spirits, Japanese sakes and wines. I had to pace myself though as I had plans to visit the United Lounge later in the day!
Singapore Airlines always has fantastic food – and the lounge in London is no exception.
The selection included all kinds of salads, sandwiches, rolls, cheeses, and smoked meats – and that was just on the cold side.
The hot table showcased fried noodles, quiches, dim sum, Asian appetizers, and surprisingly: tacos (It was a special that day since it was a Tuesday!).
The lounge even had a desert table with a huge spread of elegant mousses, cakes, tarts, and bars. Needless to say – this was not a good day to diet!
I had no problem zipping into the showers right away.
The facilities were mod and hip with floor to ceiling granite and marble everywhere. Every detail was addressed: grooming products, razors, and even a towel warmer! A rain shower ensured I emerged relaxed and ready for the flights ahead of me.
Singapore Airlines knows how to service their premium travelers!
Superb Drinks | Fab Food | A Luxe Environment. I almost didn’t want to leave the lounge when it was ready to board my flight!
The SilverKris Lounge at Heathrow is simply a marvelous place to relax and pamper oneself before a long haul, overseas flight! I can’t wait until I ‘m back.
