Premier Lounge Denpasar Airport Lounge Amenities and Food

We were in the lounge mid-afternoon, before our 4pm flight, and the lounge was packed. Thankfully some friendly South African surfers moved their bags so that we were able to sit at a table. I liked the cool looking ceiling skylights, letting in natural light from above. The lounge opened in 2015, so it's still fairly new looking.

The WiFi was good enough to conduct a Skype call for work, although the background noise was distracting.

There are showers, but they were all occupied the entire time we were there, so I wouldn't count on them; take a shower at your hotel before departing for the airport.

On the cold buffet, there were various finger sandwiches, desserts, fresh fruit, salad, and some kind of potato and corn salad.

There were only a few hot buffet options, which were quite picked over and not replaced often enough. Here was a tofu dish:

There was a bar for alcoholic drinks, as well as a refrigerated case with sodas and bottled water.

There were also a couple of juices, and infused water.

The Verdict

I liked the skylights and ceiling design in the Premier Lounge, but the lounge was simply too crowded to be enjoyable. There were was a decent variety of food, from sandwiches, a few hot dishes such as noodles and a tofu dish, as well as rice, but none of it was very good. That said, the WiFi worked decently, and the gate area, when it came time to board our Cathay Pacific flight, was even more hectic and crowded, so the lounge was better than the gate.
