CONCLUSION

I thought this lounge was actually nice with very good food selection from the buffet and the bar. There are several seating areas which is good as I was able to find a vacant seat close to the dining area when I arrived. There is also a shower room according to the website although I was not able to confirm it. The complimentary wifi was good and there are power outlets between the seats. Also, I loved the fact that they had some arts on display like the picture frames of the Eiffel Tower adding more "French feeling" unlike the neighboring Cathay Pacific Lounge which sticked to their usual lounge design. The only thing that could be annoying is the strong direct sunlight that reaches the part of the lounge with runway views. Overall, a nice lounge.
