Review: ANA Suite Lounge Satellite 5 Terminal 1, Tokyo Narita Airport (NRT)

Summer Trip Flying EVA Air Business Class on 777 & Hello Kitty Jet, Singapore Airlines Suites & Cathay Pacific First Class

Last summer, I travelled to the Philippines for the 70th birthday celebration of my father. It was a very short visit since I needed to be back home for work. I've always wanted to try EVA Air's Hello Kitty Jet so I booked my flight from Stockholm to Fukuoka using Avianca Lifemiles. From Fukuoka, I flew on a budget carrier to Tokyo, and from Tokyo I flew on Singapore Airlines Suites to Singapore, and then first class to Manila using my Kris Flyer Miles. On my way back to Stockholm, I flew on Cathay Pacific First Class and Finnair Business Class using my AA Advantage Miles. This trip allowed me to test EVA Air Hello Kitty, Singapore Suites and Cathay Pacific First Class all for the first time and I couldn't be more satisfied.

As soon as you are seated, one of the staff will offer you hot towels. I don't remember being offered a hot towel when I visited the United Global First Lounge in Satellite 3 so this must be exclusive for ANA Suites Lounge guests.

CONCLUSION

I just love visiting the ANA Suite Lounge simply because they have one of the most fantastic staff there is. They are very friendly or "polite" I must say and the service is very efficient as well. The food on the buffet were also very good and the offerings from the bar were also great. My favorite things are definitely the Shiseido amenity you get when you take a shower and of course the Japanese washlets. This lounge may not have the luxury of getting a spa treatment offered in THAI Royal First Lounge, Bangkok Airport nor the free haircut and excellent ala carte dining offered at the Emirates First Lounge in Dubai but this lounge is still one of my favorite first class lounges.
