I have been wanting to visit this lounge for the longest time ever! I have heard many good things about this place and finally got to check it out on my way back from Hong Kong. The Chase Sapphire Lounge is one of the fastest-expanding lounge networks in recent times. Chase is intending to be like AMEX and offers these luxurious comfy spaces for their most premium customers during their travels. What a refreshing take on airport lounges. As far as I know, this lounge is the first one that they have in Asia. It seems to be a direct message sent to the Centurion Lounge which is also in Hong Kong. Most of the other locations are in the states themselves. Can we please have one in Singapore?

Access Requirements

The Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club Hong Kong International Airport Terminal 1 is open from 7am to 12am daily. The lounge is available for access to Chase Sapphire Reserve Card members primarily. Currently, Priority Pass holders can access the lounge and use their guest’s entitlement as well. This is very generous as these lounges are far more premium than your usual contract lounges. You should be able to enter using Lounge Key as well.

Arrival & Location

The Chase Sapphire Lounge is located in the West Hall of the International Departures area near Gate 40. The best way to access and reach the lounge is to take the Skytrain towards the far gate after clearing immigration. It is located at the same location as the Emirates Lounge. I struggled a little to find the lounge given the lack of signs. To make things simple, you just have to get to gate 40 and then go up the escalator. You will then see the lounge. Do note that the Skytrain is in one direction only. As such, you will have to walk back if you are departing from one of the gates around the main terminal area. It will take about 15 to 20 mins. I love the modern decor and look. The entrance looks so glam. Upon arrival, I presented my boarding pass and Priority Pass card for entrance. It is quite a lull period given that Hong Kong tourism has not fully recovered then. I was then welcomed in by the friendly staff.

Chase Sapphire Lounge by The Club

The lounge looks very new and only open a couple of months back. The lounge has sort of an open concept where it opens towards the terminal. It comes with plenty of tarmac views and I love how welcoming the place is with the abundance of natural light. HKIA is good for plane spotting. I love the views from the huge window panels. I love what they have done with the space. It is very cosy and comfortable.

The main refreshment area is towards the right of the lounge after entering. Here you can find more typical dining tables that are far more suitable for dining. There are seatings for smaller groups as well as a large communal table.

Towards the left are lounges for relaxing. Heading inwards from here, you can also find the bar as well as the washroom. I love the bar area. The drinks offerings are very good for a non-airline lounge. I will share more on this later on.

After the lounge area, you can find another seating enclave. This place is very quiet and will be my choice of the seat after dining at the refreshment area.

Toilets and Showers

The lounge also comes with toilets which are well-maintained and they are stocked with amenities. That is a plus point. I always appreciate lounges having toilets. Do note that they do not have any shower rooms in the lounge.

Food and Drinks

Let me share the refreshments in the lounge. In my opinion, this is a step above the usual contract lounge. Most of the drinks and snacks are self-service from the buffet line. Everything looks delicious and fresh. Check out this cold corner. How attractive are these!

Complementing the self-served offerings you can also order from a small ala carte menu for more substantial items. This is awesome. You can order thru the QR code fixated to the tables around the lounge. The staff will then bring the items to your table. Check out the menu here. Besides the conventional dining table near the buffet line, you can also dine wherever you are seated.

I tried most of the items on the menu and their portion isn’t too big. That is good as it allows you to try more items. If you fancy any of them, you can always order more.

Make sure to try the Char Siew Rice. It is very good as what you get outside. The wanton soup is also delicious. The only dish that I am disappointed with is the meatballs. I will not recommend you order this.

Drinks-wise you have some non-alcoholic drinks right behind the entrance. Here you can find a coffee machine, packaged tea, fresh juices as well as water.

For alcoholic drinks wise, you have to make the trek over to the lounge. This is one of my main criticism of the lounge. They should have some self-served alcohol by the dining area. This should be simple enough. It is quite a trek to walk across the lounge to get a refill in the middle of your meal. The main alcoholic drinks offered are by the bar, which is located towards the left of the lounge. This is a great spot. I love the bar area.

You can find the menu for the bar here.

I tried some white wine and a cocktail. It is very good. They have some unique creations. I love aviation-inspired cocktails. This is one of the strongest points of the lounge.


This is one of the best contract lounges that I visited! It is a refreshing take to visit one of the newest offerings by Chase, a competitor to the AMEX Centurion Lounges. I hope to see more of these Chase Sapphire Lounge elsewhere. Stop by this lounge if you are passing by HKIA! You will not be disappointed. I dare say that this is better than the Plaza Premium offering that SQ sent their passengers over! With the exit of Plaza Premium offerings from Priority Pass, this remains the only option for Priority Pass members in HKIA. I love the food and the ambience. The tarmac view is excellent and how lovely it is to get a view of those sleek CX planes. Some light music in the background would be good. I love this lounge and wish that I had more time to spend here.
