Plaza Premium Lounge Review KLIA International Airport KUL Terminal 1 Satellite Terminal

Access Method: Priority Pass

Date of Visit: February 19, 2019

To get to the lounge you have to take the train to the C gates. You go up one level by elevator or escalator and walk to the entrance. All other airline lounges are nearby also. 

The lounge is on the smaller side but does have a decent selection of food including some vegetarian options. Soft drinks and beer are complimentary. Wine and spirits are for purchase. 

The only beer available is Carlsberg. Coca Cola products, juices, water, coffee, and tea are available. Self serve for all of the soft drinks except for coffee. It is made to order at the bar and is high quality. Alcohol is expensive in Malaysia due to high taxes on alcohol. That is reflected in the drink prices on the menu. 

There is also a coffee machine that was good but the bar options are better for avid coffee drinkers. 

The food was good but a bit on the salty side. The soup bar is made to order. You choose the noodles and the cook adds the soup. Then you add condiments to your liking. The broth is chicken based. 

The salad bar had good fresh veggies and the noodles, vegetables, chicken, and other items were being constantly refilled by the staff. 

At 7PM the opened the “Vegetarian Counter” which also had gluten free bread and cookies. The veg food options were fresh pancakes (good!), pasta, potatoes, curry puffs, and spring rolls. A good variety. All of the items were good. 

Free WiFi is available and works well through out the lounge. Most seats have a power port for every group of 4 which is a bit sparse but manageable. 

Lounge attendants were constantly going around and cleaning. The lounge was nearly full when I arrived at 6pm on a Tuesday. A lot of airlines also use this lounge for premium cabin and elite passengers. 

The restrooms were kept clean and they are modern. Showers are also available. 

TVs throughout the lounge were showing soccer (football). No audio as the lounge had light music playing. 

The lounge is good for refreshments and food before a flight. Nothing extra special. The paid alcoholic drinks (except Carlsberg) is a drawback. I would definitely use this lounge for a meal and doing some work before my flights in the future.
