As I was connecting to a Singapore business flight, I had access to the SilverKris Lounge, although not the Private Room in the lounge which is reserved for first class passengers. Although this is Singapore’s business class lounge, people who are Star Alliance Gold don’t get access to the SilverKris Lounge; instead, they get access to the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge (why Gold is less exclusive than Silver is beyond me).

The SilverKris Lounge is quite large, with a variety of different seating areas. There are computers to use, a small conference room for business, a sizable dining area, and lots of seats for lounging. Given its size, it never felt crowded, even during the busy times.

If there’s one fault that I could see, it’s that there weren’t many electrical outlets, except at the seats along the edge of the lounge, so most people seemed to congregate along the edge.

There were extensive food options served buffet style. Things seemed to be replaced often, and there were lots of signs saying what was vegetarian, which I greatly appreciated.

The shower facilities were decent, although I couldn’t get the water to be as hot as I wanted. It was a rather lukewarm shower.

I also had the chance to visit the SilverKris Lounge in Terminal 2, and I found it to be slightly worse than the Terminal 3 lounge. The Terminal 3 lounge is larger, has better and more food options, and also has couches, which is important if you’re trying to take a nap as there are no nap rooms in either lounge. It’s just a short tram ride between the terminals, so I’d probably take the time to head to Terminal 3 if I had a long enough layover and was departing out of Terminal 2.
