The Qantas Singapore Lounge is a large, bright and airy lounge sectioned into various spaces, with a touch of luxe and industrial vibe.
The revamp of the Qantas Singapore Lounge was completed early 2013, which was a little while ago. Fast forward five years and I finally had the opportunity to visit.
Even though the lounge is now five years old, it still looks modern and fresh with a nice touch of luxe. Chris Love Design has the task of creating the space. A space that when created had to cater to Business Class passengers, Qantas Club members, Qantas Gold and Platinum and Platinum One tier holders. As well as One World Sapphire and Emerald frequent flyers.
Back when the Qantas Singapore Lounge was completed Singapore wasn’t the hub for Qantas flights heading to Europe, it was Dubai. Things changed in March this year seeing Singapore reinstated as the Qantas hub. This also means that the lounge now caters to Qantas First Class passengers.
So what does this mean for Qantas top tier flyers? Qantas has recently added a platinum/emerald one world/first class area. It had to be done with the increase of QF flights into Singapore since giving Dubai the flick, plus the addition of flights which have first class.
The lounge was pretty busy when I visited and that was before it was servicing the extra flights. This change will give their premium status flyers a little extra.
There is a Neil Perry Rockpool self serve menu plus a live cooking station. Staff roam the lounge with trays of food to offer patrons.
The dining area has an industrial feel with the open ceilings and concrete. Nothing like seeing the workings of the lighting and airconditioning systems. But it works and adds extra height and space to the area. The use of wood softens everything to make it inviting and comfortable.
Service staff are friendly and attentive. Their professionalism makes perfect sense as they are provided by Sofitel.
You can’t miss the long bar with full bar service. You can even take a seat and have a chat to the bartender if you wish.
But a staff member will most probably drop by where you are seated and offer you the cocktail of the day from a tray. At one stage I unashamedly had a glass of sparkling white and a cocktail perched next to my mac while working. Having already grabbed the sparkling the eagers staff member convinced me “why not” on the cocktail. Who was I go argue?

I thought Changi Airport is great but this one's really awesome. The food and drinks make me hungry! Great photos!
Indeed a very relaxing lounge, perfect to spend a layover here. The food looks so delicious, fruits and vegetables looks so fresh. Well I don't mind to work a bit longer for a flight if you will stay in a place like this!

Gosh, this lounge looks amazing - all those foods! I do love Emirates - but this beats it. Need to try it out next time in Singapore.
Wow, the Quantas lounge is definitely one of the nicest I've ever seen. I love the long table, as sometimes I go in a lounge with someone I want to work with on a project and it'd be easy to collaborate this way. I also love that you get to try some of the local cuisines at lounges in other countries.
Since Changi is such an amazing airport it makes sense that the Quantas lounge would be this nice. I love how spacious the lounge is and the food looks amazing! I certainly wouldn't mind having a longer layover here.
Wow, I have heard such great things about the Changi airport and this confirms them all!! That food looks AMAZING - and the space too! wouldn't mind a long layover at all!
ooh I'm jealous, this looks like an amazing spot to spend waiting for a flight! Qantas really must know how to treat their customers. You are giving me some major airport envy!
The QANTAS SINGAPORE LOUNGE CHANGI AIRPORT seems like a great place for a hangout. Love those buffets. And I love to fly Emirates anyway. Haven't been to Singapore in 20 years so this will be fun!
The food and beverage offering there looks the best I've ever seen in an airport lounge. Though Changi is pretty good anyway. I'm impressed by the design too - I'd like those brown leather chairs in my own house!
