For the first time an independent lounge service is coming to Terminal 4 which will available to all classes of travellers regardless of airline or travel class. The brainchild of Chinese businessman Mr Song Hoi-see, who has pioneered the luxury lounge concept in airports all over the world, the Plaza Premium Lounge opening at Heathrow Terminal 4 will be his second lounge following the successful opening of his first lounge at Terminal 2.
Access to Plaza Premium Lounge costs from £35 per person for two hours and this includes extensive choices of food and beverage, complimentary Wi-Fi and shower.
The new Plaza Premium Lounge is light, airy and spacious. Natural light floods through the floor-to-ceiling windows and skylight, making it a relaxing place to rest or work. The black and white tiled kitchen area with live cooking station and buffet is at the centre of the lounge, offering a selection of Asian and European inspired dishes. Plaza Premium Lounge is also the only lounge in the terminal that offers halal prepared food. There are productivity pods for those looking for peace and quiet to work, Skype family and friends or watch a film on their tablet. A separate bar area, elegantly designed with hues of yellow and grey acts as the lounge’s social hub.
There are four shower rooms for travellers who want to refresh themselves before their onward journey – with many long-haul flights departing from Terminal 4 this will be a popular choice. For guests wanting further privacy, the lounge has a VIP area with a separate entrance to the lounge and three private resting suites. Guests can use the area for meetings, spending time with family and friends, enjoying a relaxing massage or simply to sleep in the private resting suites. Connectivity is key in the lounge with complimentary Wi-Fi throughout and plenty of plug sockets for tablets, laptops and mobile phones.
Mr Song Hoi-see, Founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Lounge Management Limited, comments, “We can see rapid growth in London Heathrow, passengers are not only travelling more, but also travelling smarter, seeking out facilities like ours to make the most out of their travel experience.”
