Singapore Airlines Suites Experience - The Private Room

About a year ago, KPO blogged about Redeeming Krisflyer Miles for Singapore Airlines Suites. A year later, we started on our very first (and hopefully not last) Suites experience. Our adventure began a week before our trip, where we had to Book the Cook for our meals onboard. Refer to below for the meals selected.

On the day of departure, we learnt that there was a First Class check-in area at Changi Airport T3. For those who have not been there before, you should see a huge sign directing passengers to the First Class drive up area when reaching Changi Airport (see image below). Follow the sign to turn left, and you will be greeted by the friendly porters who will come forward to greet you and help to bring your luggage to the check-in area.

We were invited to take a seat while the staff proceeded with our check-in. This is the first time we had our check-in done seated (yeah suaku)! The check-in area was posh and well furnished. The friendly staff helped to wrap our check-in items carefully when we mentioned to them that the items inside are fragile. 

Once the check-in was done, the staff quickly handed to us our "gold" boarding passes and the tickets to "The Private Room". Since we are not revealing our identities, we will be introducing Donald as KPO and Piglet as CZM :)

The Private Room is located in the innermost of the SilverKris Lounge. Once we reached the SilverKris Lounge, the staff took our golden tickets and asked if we would like it back. We nodded our head and he went on to lead the way as we passed by the Business Lounge and the First Class Lounge before reaching the Private Room. On the way, he mentioned that we could use any of these lounges as well.

The Private Room is essentially just another lounge which was a lot quieter and had fewer people. When we walked past the Business Lounge, it was extremely crowded! Another difference between the Private Room and the other lounges is the level of service. The food inside the Private Room is plated (fine dining), while the other lounges are self-serve. The staff handed us the food menu as we entered. The variety of food and drinks on the menu was CRAZY a lot (see menu below).

We had a hard time choosing what to eat and ended up ordering most of the main courses (they are all free and KPO kept emphasizing that it was once a lifetime experience). Not sure if that was a mistake, because that made us really full even before we boarded the plane.

Food ordered:
- Oriental Soup

- Dim Sum Delights
- Baked Lobster with 3 Cheeses (*KPO highly recommends this!*)
- US Beef Prime Burger
- Assorted Satay
- Beef Brisket Noodle
- Baked Chilean Sea Bass Papillote (no photo as it didn't look good on camera)

Some vanilla ice-cream + Chocolate cake which the staff gave us though we didn't order. 

- Dom Perignon

After our hearty dinner, we checked out the bathroom. It was sparkling clean and well-equipped with amenities. Shampoo, soap, body lotion, perfume, shaver (male toilet), hairdryer, toothbrush, mouthwash, and even the bath towels are provided! Basically, you don't need to bring anything to the washroom except for a clean pair of clothes.

After we were done bathing, we decided to explore other areas within the Private Room. There are two private call rooms, one Family Room and one computer area for surfing.

By the time we finished exploring the area, it was about time to board the plane. We left the Private Room and went to the other lounges to explore (took Haagen-Dazs ice cream from the First Class Lounge) before making our way to the boarding gate. Shall review the flight experience in the next post!
