Al Safwa First Class Lounge

AKA The most wonderful place in the entire world. Some of you may like Disneyland and this is my Disneyland … except without the masses and no line ups plus it has superior service and food. Even the design and aesthetics of this place blows other lounges out the water.

Coming out of the tube and we made the long walk down to the central concourse.

Everyone wanting a selfie with da bear.

Following the signs to the lounge.

Stairway to heaven.

Our boarding passes were scanned and we were directed towards the main doors to the right of the desk.

We came to the junction where one of the staff members gave us a quick tour of the area.

We went towards the main dining area to have a bite to eat.

The view.

A member of the dining staff saw us walking towards the area and escorted us to an open table. Menus were available by scanning a QR code on the table but the staff gave us two iPads to check the menu. We couldn’t decide on what to eat, so the waiter suggested we try a sampling of appetizers first.

Lamb kofta, spinach samosas and falafel.

The Mrs went with a healthy but tasteless chicken option.

While I chose the Arabic chicken rice dish and it hit the spot.

For dessert, we went with the waiter’s suggestion of saffron cake and “tree in the woods”.

After a filling meal service, a glass of bubbly for fun time in the jacuzzi.

Heading towards the Spa and Quiet room area.

There were only single rooms available, so we each took one. I went to try out the jacuzzi while the Mrs went to crash for a few hours.


Afterwards, I made my way to my sleeping room.

Slept for a few hours and freshened up before the Dubai flight.

Taking one final look at the place before we headed out. This place is just beyond words.
