Review: Singapore Airlines Business Class Lounge Changi

The Singapore Airlines Business Class Lounge is super nice. With that being said…Miles spoiled my parents so much on this surprise trip that neither of them even wanted to know it existed, let alone see it.  What has Miles done, lol?!?!  In fact, I’m fairly certain my mom never wants to fly anything but first class ever again, and when our escort took us past the business class lounge en route to The Private Room only Miles and I were intrigued.  We took 10 or 15 minutes to check it out, and I must say…I’m impressed. Let’s check it out.

The Deets:

  • When: April 2017
  • Where: Singapore Changi
    • Passenger Terminal Building Three, Level 3 Unit 03-MS-06 (Nearer to Gate A)
  • Entry:
    • Business, First, Suites passengers
    • PPS Club members prior to Singapore and Silk Air flights
    • Solitaire PPS members prior or after
    • Air New Zealand Elite and Elite Parnter members flying on Singapore or Air New Zealand to New Zealand or connecting from.

The lounge is MASSIVE.

There is plenty of space to sit by yourself or with whomever you’re traveling with, in fact you could bring in the proper equipment needed for a competitive game of curling, and I’m fairly sure no one would be the wiser.

The Buffet presentation is ON POINT. Look at all this marble?!

Miles couldn’t believe how long one of the islands was, and since he prefers to take naps on fine marble in the middle of fancy lounges while people serve themselves food around him, he indulged.  If there were palm fronds he would have requested them fanned while grapes were hand-fed. I think he may be getting out of control.

The options…

There’s a huge section where you can get work done. Ugh.

And then work stations with a view.

There’s also showers and a large bathroom

This is a great business class lounge with various styles of seating, tons of place, and if you need to get work done…you’ll find privacy

I didn’t photograph it, but there is an area just off the work stations that is staffed by Singapore Airlines. Essentially, if you have anything you need assistance with…they’ll help you get it done. Pretty nice.

You don’t have to stop here. Check out how we paid $5k and took a $125k Surprise trip Around The World to celebrate my Mom’s 75th

We keep an up to date spreadsheet that lists the best ever offers: You can find that spreadsheet here.

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex®  and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

Annual fee is quite low at $95 a year + you get a 10% anniversary bonus on points + $50 hotel credit in Chase travel.
