Enjoying Royal Silk Lounge at Bangkok Airport

In late 2019, I was flying from Bali to Denmark via Bangkok aboard Thai Airways. And I had a few hours of layover at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport so enjoyed the luxury of the Thai Airways’ Royal Silk Lounge including a free massage.

Background to My Bangkok Layover

I spent two weeks in Bali and was to spend a few days in the Danish capital Copenhagen before returning to Canada.

I travelled using Star Alliance loyalty program and had a business class flight from Bali to Denmark by Thai Airways. So, the transit was in Bangkok.

As I was flying business class, I had access to Thai Airways’ Royal Silk Lounge. Bangkok being the primary location of Thai Airways, the Suvarnabhumi International Airport is home to a number of Royal Silk Lounges.

Initially, I had walked into a lounge and was disappointed by its relatively smaller size. I couldn’t believe that the lounge in one of the prestigious airports in Asia would be so small.

Then I remembered enjoying a larger lounge during a visit a few years. So, after some inquiries, I found out that there is indeed a larger one.

The flight to Copenhagen was in the wee hours of the morning but the lounge was open. The lounges are open 24/7 and, in my opinion, is one of the best lounges in the world.

The lounge has plenty of comfortable seating.


The lounge shines in its food options with a variety of western and Asian dishes available. There were hot and cold foods, as well as finger foods. I had a good meal on my flight to Bangkok so I was not hungry. Besides, I was keen to taste the business class food aboard Thai Airways flight to Copenhagen, so I just went for a soup.

Fortunately for me, I didn’t have to wait for too long for the massage. There was a separate, more intimate section for massages and I enjoyed a professional and soothing massage, all capped by jasmine tea.

Concluding Comments ion My Visit to Royal Silk Lounge at Bangkok Airport

I always look forward to lounges and this lounge in the Suvarnabhoomi airport is really worth the visit.
