Eugene Barry, Executive Vice President of Commercial, Dubai Airports says, “Dubai International’s consumer expectation is constantly evolving, and we regularly evaluate the breadth of commercial products and services offer to global travellers. We are delighted to partner with Plaza Premium Group to introduce internationally-acclaimed Plaza Premium Lounge to our service portfolio at the airport’s Concourse A.”
Situated on the upper level overlooking departure gates A2 and A3, the lounge resembles a balcony sweeping with natural lights from the airport’s high ceilings. Guests unwinding at the lounge can appreciate the apron views while watching the movement of travellers on the walkways underneath. Drawing inspirations from Dubai’s unique landscape, the lounge space is designed with elements to interpret the waves of deserts and ocean in movements. Beginning at the reception is a blue backdrop portraying Dubai’s city skyline while rounded corners applied throughout the space exhibit the idea of sand dunes and feature walls mimic the movement of sands in the wind.
Plaza Premium Lounge Dubai is the only airport lounge to offer four 10-square-meter Family Suites catering to the needs of big families or small groups with the inclusion of services by a team of multi-lingual butlers who speak Arabic, Russian, Hindi, Tagalog and Turkish. Travellers opting for the Family Suite will also enjoy Arabic coffee and dates, and welcome drinks. As part of the brand’s promise to promote family-friendliness and sustainability, the dedicated Playroom – the only dedicated kids’ zone at the terminal – is highlighted by colourful murals of camels, palm trees and iconic buildings in Dubai, and features educational and sustainably made toys by international toy brand Masterkidz. Five shower rooms are available for guests to freshen up before a long-haul flight while Plaza Premium Lounge’s signature honeycomb workstations are perfect for business travellers needing a private space. A unique feature is a row of the single-person, in-flight cabin lookalike relaxation seats with sliding doors to convert the personal space into private napping area.
The enclosed bar area includes feature walls illustrating a modernised take on the movement of sand and wind, and includes a dedicated entry to a cigar lounge. Following the brand’s “go green” culinary approach to reduce carbon footprint and to support the local community, the lounge presents a glocal cuisine freshly made in live cooking station with ingredients sourced locally to create Arabic, Asian and International cuisines. Hydration station with fruit-infused drinks are on offer. Specially designed menus for kids and infants are also available in addition to gluten-free options on request for travellers with special dietary requirements.
Dubai lounge is the sixth Plaza Premium Lounge in the Middle East, joining existing locations in Abu Dhabi (two), Dammam, Riyadh and Salalah. It is also the latest addition to the brand’s global network of more than 70 locations in Greater China, Asia Pacific, Americas, Europe and India
