More and more international flights are leaving from Manila’s Terminal 3 (or NAIA3) and now, you have a few lounge options there, too. PriorityPass, Delta, KLM and SkyTeam are utilizing the Pacific Club Lounge in Terminal 3. Read my review to find out if it’s worth stopping by!
The Pacific Club lounge is located in the international part of the terminal on the level 4 (above the departure area, access by elevator or stairs). It is available to Priority Pass members (in my case, courtesy of Citibank Prestige MasterCard) and two guests. The Pacific Club Lounge is also serving Delta, KLM and SkyTeam passengers and it is a great option as one of the nicer lounges in the Philippines! It is an L-shaped layout, with a bistro style area past the reception, offering tables with chairs and a buffet of food and drinks. Walking around the corner, you will find comfortable sofas/chairs and couch tables to relax, as well as news papers and magazine and TVs. There is a row of work spaces, bat style along the wall. The design was rather modern and much nicer than other Priority Pass lounges I have seen so far.
The food choices were limited during the evening visit, with some small sandwiches and hot dishes, but they tasted good. There were a good selection of soft drinks as well as beer, white and red wine and some hard liquor! I celebrated my first proper lounge experience at NAIA3 with a glass of red, which was pretty good as far as lounge-wines go, and some snacks.
On a second visit for an early morning flight, the food choices were much better: There were fresh fruit, cornflakes and breads/pastries, as well as bite-sized servings of pancakes and steak & eggs. I ate my way through the selection and every single one of them tasted surprisingly good – and I had a full breakfast, including cappuccino and orange juice! This certainly beat the offer of the ANA business class lounge by a long shot.
There is free Wifi as well as a Television to help you spend your time till departure. It’s a comfortable place to wait for your flight in NAIA’s Terminal 3. If you are flying StarAlliance, you might want to check out Singapore Airline’s brand new lounge on the same level – it’s even nicer!
