Plaza Premium Lounge, the world’s largest independent airport lounge network, debuted in Taipei on Wednesday 27 July, welcoming all travellers regardless of their airline or class of travel.
“Plaza Premium Lounge in Taipei is our Group’s first project in Taiwan,” said Mr Song Hoi-see, Founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Group at the grand opening ceremony. “We have invested a lot in Taipei by introducing four cutting-edge Plaza Premium Lounges to facilitate travellers departing from, transiting through and arriving at Taipei. We aim at strengthening the affinity of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (Taoyuan Airport) to travellers and making it a preferred transit hub in East Asia.”
Located at the Departures in Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 of Taoyuan Airport, the new Plaza Premium Lounges span over 2500 square metres with comfortable seating of about 600, in which the company has also sponsored two Travellers Experience Zones in both terminals to let travellers explore and experience various lounge facilities. Aiming to provide a tranquil and relaxing environment, Plaza Premium Lounge’s designers have selected “trees and timber” as the theme of the lounge, combining contemporary city elements with a touch of local flavour. Guests can see the different artistic timber structure as an echo of the vitality and prosperity of Taiwan. Such installations turn into a series of quality fabrics and decorations across various zones throughout the lounges, representing the idea of evolution as an ever-changing process. To reinforce the rich artistic culture of the city, the designer created a hollow shape of Taiwan island on carved wood embedded in the front wall of Plaza Premium Lounge in Terminal 1, whereas the iconic Taipei 101 and the skyline of Xinyi district was captured onto an over three-metre bas-relief sculpture, displaying prominently at the reception of Plaza Premium Lounge in Terminal 2.
Plaza Premium Lounge adheres to its brand ethos of enhancing the airport experience by tailoring services and facilities for travellers. User-friendly facilities include the brand’s signature honeycomb seating, powerful hot showers, private resting suites, VIP rooms, meeting rooms, plenty of electrical outlets, international TV channels, complimentary Wi-Fi, newspapers and magazines. The new lounges also offer freshly made international cuisine at the live-cooking station to provide a theatrical and interactive dining experience.
The basic lounge use package of Plaza Premium Lounge in either Terminal 1 or Terminal 2 starts at AU$54 for two hours.
