The Pier, Cathay Pacific’s First Class Passenger lounge at HKG must be a great way to start a long haul flight. The lounge is designed by Ilse Crawford and her studio –www.studioilse.com
For The Pier First Class lounge in Cathay Pacific’s hub airport in Hong Kong, we began by questioning what a luxury experience is for today’s first class traveller. Principles of Wellbeing – a feeling of health, comfort and privacy – was a recurring theme in our research and quickly became central to our design approach. This has resulted in a lounge design that looks good but more importantly feels great. Throughout the lounge every detail has been considered to ensure the passenger experience is friction-free and enables them to slow down and feel good, before getting on their flight.
Asian and international influences are showcased in The Dining Room’s seasonal à la carte menu, featuring classic dishes, signature noodles, and specialty desserts—and passenger can pair their dinner with a drink from the extensive wine and beverage list.
Refined comfort at The Retreat
Passengers can unwind in one of our eight Day Suites, with quiet views over the runway. Furnished with a daybed, reading light, and privacy curtains, each Day Suite makes for a perfect area to catch up on sleep or work undisturbed, before boarding.
Massage service and shower rooms
Calming, personalised massage treatments will help to ease the strains of the day, in preparation for your voyage. The shower rooms are stocked with fluffy towels and premium amenities.
Designed for productivity
The Bureau offers six secluded work suites equipped with iMac computers, for quiet productivity in a home office environment. High speed Wi-Fi, offered throughout the lounge, allows passengers to stay connected at all times.
The senses considered
To help passengers relax, Cathay have designed an engaging journey of the senses—from the signature Cathay Pacific fragrance (a soothing blend of lavender, bamboo, green tea, and jasmine), through to the quiet acoustics of the natural materials, and the warm, ambient lighting present in all environments.
The Pier, First is a premium lounge for First class passengers, along with selected Marco Polo Club members and oneworld frequent flyers.
