Review: EVA Air Infinity Lounge TPE

Welcome to the future! It’s no secret that EVA loves Hello Kitty. They have Hello Kitty planes, and even a huge Hello Kitty “experience” before you go through security. So it’s no surprise that they designed a lounge that Hello Kitty would want to visit.  As you will see in the pics below, this lounge takes a very avant-garde approach to design and lighting. Although this lounge is definitely not my style, it’s the kind of thing you want to see when you leave your home country…something different. Plus, I think Miles may have a crush on Hello Kitty so we’re probably going to have to fly EVA Royal Laurel again so he can spit some game 😉 Without further adieu, the EVA Air Infinity Lounge TPE

Sometimes you just need a sign…

There are quite a few EVA Air lounges so double check your pass

Just so there’s no confusion of who’s allowed to come in…

Checking in

Turn right and you’ll see the main seating areas as well as the work stations and lockers.

I’m wondering if Eminem visited this lounge before filming the video for Rap God…

Anyways we found a spot next to a tree on vacation from Las Vegas pretending to be a bench.

The lounge was very crowded and we locked down a spot to hang for a bit and grab a snack.

Food selection:

There was a nice blend of Western and Asian selections. And for those who crave some Anti Meridiem XO – you can indulge.

I had two, two scoop ice cream cones. Vacay diets are the best. Don’t judge me.

After my belly was full I checked out the showers.  You’ll need to drop off your boarding pass to get a key. And then enjoy your “fantasy flow” WAYO!



You don’t fly half way around the world to go to another Admiral’s Club, do you? I didn’t think so. The lounge is different and we like that.  Enjoy it for a bit, and if you’re looking for something that’s cut from the thread you’re used to…saunter on down to the Plaza Premium Lounge and whip out your priority pass. If Skrillex is somewhere on your playlist…I’d suggest setting a genius playlist and give your experience a little dubstep cause you’ll certainly be asking yourself, Where are you now?
