The most luxurious airport lounge ever? – Inside the Etihad Airways First Class lounge in Abu Dhabi
Reading, writing and experiencing luxury is what we do for a living. There are a few brands that get us really excited and high up in the ranks is Etihad Airways. In a short time the airline has not only redefined but also set the rules when it comes to luxury in skies.

After the stunning and extravagant Residence suite, here is a luxurious launch-pad, before getting on board and settling into your seat – the Etihad Airways First Class Lounge & Spa at Abu Dhabi International Airport’s Terminal 3.

Launched today, the airline’s flagship First Class Lounge & Spa has rewritten style and comfort to match new levels of luxury. An à la carte restaurant, showcase bar, fitness room, cigar lounge, Six Senses Spa, Style & Shave barbers, nail bar, TV room, secluded relaxation room, prayer room and children’s play room – all promising a “highly personalised experience and intuitive service”.

Here at the lounge, you will have the attention of a dedicated Savoy-trained Butler, custom-made Poltrona Frau Italian leather armchairs and sofas, its own shower room stocked with a range of Acqua di Parma products, a prayer room, and private dining.

Dining Lounge Chef plating food
The meals are overlooked by an Executive Chef who “brings with him immense experience from a long career with leading hotel brands including Ritz Carlton, Shangri-La, and Intercontinental”. The menus are frequently changed, and offer a range of Arabian, Indian and international cuisine made to order at any time of day. Guests can also try out the five-course Emirati tasting menu, developed by chefs from Mezlai at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi.
