Review: Lounge ANA, Lisbon Airport (LIS)

New Year's Trip to Lisbon & Prague

This trip included traveling to Lisbon together with the Singelresor Group to celebrate New Year; spending a night in Stockholm; and then flying to Prague where I stayed for two nights. I did not make any flight review flying in TAP economy class although I have included reviews of the lounges I was able to visit during this trip.

CONCLUSION

A few weeks ago, I was able to visit the Lounge ANA in Lisbon Airport. The lounge with an area of more than 900 square meters caters to business class passengers of different airlines including Emirates, Turkish Airlines, TAP, etc. as well as Priority Pass members. One thing that I found strange is that one can take a shower for free but if you need a shower kit and a towel, you would need to pay 15.45Euro for that. On the other hand, I also understand them since this is a third party lounge and that they have to generate income for that extra "shower kit". Regarding the food, I thought the sandwiches were okay as well as the juices and wines. There are also private relaxation areas (5 singles and 1 twin) as well as a smoking room. There is complimentary wifi connection which is fast enough. There is a mention of a spa on their website although I was not able to confirm it. Overall, this is a nice lounge for a third party lounge although it is definitely sub par to others I have visited specially to the Fantazja Executive Lounge in Warsaw Airport.
