After checking in for our Singapore Airlines business class flight to Singapore and going though security, we proceeded to the Sky Lounge, Royal Brunei Airlines’ lounge at Brunei International Airport.

Access

Royal Brunei Airlines allows access to the Sky Lounge (the only lounge in the airport) for qualifying passengers of other airlines, including Singapore Airlines.

Since Brunei International Airport is a small airport, the Sky Lounge is not far from the gates.  Basically, you just walk up a flight of stairs from the gate area and you are at the lounge entrance.  Now, about those stairs…we’re not sure if it’s because the airport was under construction during our visit or if it’s always the case but there is no elevator.  This wasn’t a problem for us, however, we can see how it might be for someone with mobility issues or a heavy bag.

We were greeted upon entering the Sky Lounge and handed a small piece of paper with the free wi-fi password.

Seating

As you enter the Sky Lounge, you will immediately see the food station in front of you.

There are seats to the left and right sides of the entrance and food station.

The left side of the lounge is smaller, more private and offers comfortable chairs as well as reading material.

The refrigerator was stocked with a decent selection of self-serve beverages, including bottled water.  As Brunei is a Muslim country that follows Sharia law, no alcohol is served in the lounge.

Other Amenities

The lounge has showers (which we did not see), a business center and a Muslim prayer room.

The entire lounge was peaceful and very clean. Even the bathrooms.

Overall, we really enjoyed the Royal Brunei Airline’s Sky Lounge- it was probably our favorite lounge on this trip.  The lounge was a quiet and convenient place to relax before our flight and as a bonus, we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves.
