Cathay Pacific The Wing First Class Lounge Hong Kong Amenities and Cabanas
Cathay Pacific's The Wing First Class Lounge doesn't offer spa massages, but it does have its own highlight: Cabanas that are far newer, cleaner and sleeker than the British Airways Concorde Room Cabanas. There are 5 Cabanas, so if you'd like to reserve one, I recommend going straight to the reception desk. At the time I was there, in the late morning, there was no wait and I was escorted straight to a Cabana, but during busier times they may all be taken and there's a wait list.
In consideration of other passengers, Cathay asks that you limit your time in a Cabana to 1.5 hours:
The Haven Dining Menu and Food at The Wing First Class Lounge
The Wing does offer a light self-serve buffet and tea bar in one of the main open seating areas, with some sandwiches, fruit and fruit tarts:
There's also a bar, where I had a mango juice. I asked if it was freshly squeezed and was told it was, although it tasted canned and not fresh squeezed at all.
Here's a wine list and cocktail menu:
The Haven is the main dining room at The Wing, and offers both a self-serve buffet as well as a la carte dining.
Here's the menu from my visit:
I chose the Salmon Fillet with White Quinoa and Beet, which was so quick to come out, it seemed doubtful that the salmon had been prepared to order; it was probably reheated in some way, which would explain why it was slightly overcooked. It was still tasty, and I do give credit for at least having organic white quinoa and the nice presentation.
The portion was the perfect size, not too large, so I tried a few items from the self-serve buffet as well, which offered char siu pork (delicious), steamed dim sum (very average), sushi (average), fresh fruit, smoked salmon, cheeses and desserts.
