I ran off the plane after landing in SIN because I just couldn’t wait to get my Singapore Suites experience started. I had a little over an hour before boarding, so I had some time to take in the SilverKris First Class Lounge and….Private Room. Yeah, that exists.
SilverKris Private Room
After taking a quick 2 minute sky train ride, I located the SilverKris Lounge. Up the escalators I went.
Thai Air, which printed my boarding pass, didn’t know what to do with my Suite Class ticket so they just printed it on an economy boarding pass. Makes sense. But the ladies at the Singapore check-in worked their magic and printed me off a legit Suite Class ticket.
You have to be flying Singapore Airlines First Class to have access to the Private Room. Even though I was on an award ticket, I was still allowed in, which is the norm.
After getting my ticket issue figured out, I was escorted past the First Class Lounge and checked in to the Private Room. Ohhhh my.
It was a massive area that had large comfy seating options, and hardly any people. It was just me and two other gentlemen, one who I presumed was a politician and the other was definitely in the mafia.
After a quick walk through, I was led to the private dining area. I was greeted immediately and handed a menu. It was great service, but come on, I was the only one in the dining area. Dude was probably bored out of his mind and just happy to have human interaction.
I just loved the chairs throughout the private room. They were big, leather, and oh so comfortable.
I opted for a light soup and glass of red wine. I didn’t have much time before my flight and knew I needed to save room for the onboard service.
Of course the TV screens were large. Perfect for catching up on some sports, albeit tennis, but I’ll take it.
I didn’t realize there was a separate private room to make phone calls or work. Too bad I used my cell phone in the dining room. I hope that didn’t piss anyone off. Not sure why anyone would need this space because I doubt the private room is every busy. I could see wanting to avoid the wait staff by ducking in the room for an hour or two, though.
It looks like the kids play area had never seen a kid.
I didn’t have time for a shower (bummer, I know), but I still had to go check it out. It was a nice shower, but it wasn’t separate from the community bathroom.
I couldn’t shower, but I did make my way to a toothbrush.
First Class Lounge
I spent a little too much time in the private room and was needing to get to the gate, so I pretty much sprinted through the First Class lounge. Laughing at all the poor people in there.
Pretty decent seating options, but where are the big leather chairs?
There was a self-serve buffet, which offered more than enough options to satisfy your hunger pains.
I did wish I had more time to spend at the centralized bar. Looked like a nice spot to have a beer and watch some sports or news.
On to the next one
The private room area was mind blowing. It was almost too nice and the service was almost too over the top. I felt like I was being stalked. Every time I went to a new area to rest or just check it out, I could see the waiter peaking at me from around the corner. You know, service so good it’s creepy.
I preferred the shower, slumber room, and service at Lufthansa First Class Lounge in Munich, but I enjoyed the private dining room and killer chairs at the Singapore Private Room. But it’s hard to complain about either. They were both great experiences in different ways.
Next up is Singapore Suite Class review and then I’m done. I feel like this trip report will never end. Seriously, do you know how long it takes to upload pictures? Anyway, thanks to miles and points, I got to go on this crazy trip and now you have to read about it. I do hope that it helps you decide on if you should use your hard earned points to travel on one of the products I experienced and reviewed.
