Abused my unlimited PP recently, so I thought I'd take the chance to provide a quick review.

T3:

SATS Lounge - best food imo. but slightly crowded. also there were only 2 showers and there was a queue for the showers.

dnata lounge - decent food, decent alcohol, slightly crowded

Haven: no alcohol. food is ok. chairs aren't particularly comfortable but it was decently quiet. The only reason I would use this lounge is if I'm still landside and can't check in yet.

Ambassador transit - nice and quiet with not-so-good food. only place I saw that had ice cream. didn't see the liquor so can't comment on that. many shower stalls with a good area for you to sit down and blow dry your hair/apply makeup/whatever.


T2 (I visited these lounges quite late into the night, there may be better food/alcohol earlier in the day):

Green market - standard meal (I got the saba, ok but not fantastic... like the $7 kind at food court). Buffet spread wasn't great, just some salads and a chicken dish

Ambassador transit - this one had a gym. mediocre food, not very crowded but not quiet.


Overall recommendations:

- Haven if you are stuck landside (only option available anyway)
- SATS if you want food and alcohol
- Maybe Green Market if you want food and no alcohol (I've heard the spread is better earlier in the day)
- Ambassador T3 if you just want to shower and rest
- Ambassador T2 to workout

T1

SATS Lounge - good food with alcohol. brightly lit. no showers. sitting area near kitchen can be noisy with dishes being stacked. free massage chairs. bcos it's bright, not conducive if wanna take a nap. good coffee machine with 2 types of beans. has a very functional feel.

dnata lounge - ok food (satay was good) with alcohol (Pinot Noir). very cosy ambience with comfortable sofas, lounge chairs, dimmer lighting. has a dedicated eating area. looks newly decorated. Coffee not as good here. More relaxing feel.

I eat at SATS lounge, then go to Dnata for 40 winks.

T1 has a plaza premium lounge that is towards the C gate area. I am often the only person in the lounge, so quiet till the aunties that work there will chat you up.

Food changes at 11am, from breakfast to cook to order hainan chicken rice, laska and udon I think. Japanese handrolls can also be ordered. Alcohol is not free.

Got shower and spa but I dunno how are they surviving.

chicken rice sounds good...better than most of the food from the other lounges

T1 - Had a day trip yday and checked out Dnata lounge in the morning (7am+) for a quick bite. It was really not bad, extremely huge so you prolly can get a good rest at some secluded area. For food, they had siew mai, bun, udon, baked beans, and some stuffs.

For those who likes to have some alcohol infusion, I saw that they have tiger beer, spirits (gin, etc), red/white wines - all self service.

I think they might have a barista because there's a coffee machine in the bar itself. Otherwise, they have a machine where you can self service, coffee definitely tasted okay.

Flying again later, shall take a look at SATS and Plaza at T1.

My personal option - the best place in Changi you can get with PP in terms of food and overall - SATS at T3.

"The court was not told why he wanted to stay at the airport."
Lol, why he love to stay so many days in lounges?
