Ever since the first time I step foot into Silverkris Lounge in 2012 (and The Private Room in 2013), it has been errr….. stuck in a time warp.
My first impression of the Business Class lounge back then was one of grandeur and opulence, with its luxurious marbled floor and walls. Together with the large food and beverage selection, it was the lounge I would love to be in back then.
Just as I thought that nothing can be better, my first experience in the First Class Lounge and The Private Room (TPR) changed my mind. The lounge within a lounge concept made TPR an exclusive sanctuary. The a la carte dining menu made the TPR even more special.
Fast forward 7 years later, both Business Class and First Class lounge remained the same. Over the years, cost cutting measures were quite evident on both sides of the lounge and TPR was not spared either. The a la carte dining offering has noticeably gotten worse (gone was my favorite Foie Gras that sit on top of the burger). With many lounges worldwide that has made significant improvement, the gap between Silverkris Lounge in Changi and other competing lounges has narrowed.
The latest news of Silverkris Lounge upgrade / refurbishment is certainly welcomed (and long overdue).
Lets hope that the new lounge will be as exciting as it sounds. Meanwhile, we just have to bear with the inconvenience up till 2021. I hope the wait is worthwhile!
