After my 28 hours of layover in Bangkok, now it was time again to fly Qatar Airways back to Doha with a stop at Suvarnabhumi Airport’s Miracle First Class Lounge. I checked out from my hotel, Hyatt Place around 4 PM and headed over to the airport.
I will be flying back to Doha on Qatar Airways First Class which I redeemed only 72,000 Avios one-way from Bangkok all the way to Zurich via Doha. I was particularly excited about this trip as I can finally stop overnight at Qatar Airways’ Al Safwa Lounge in Doha as well as experience Bangkok’s Miracle First Class Lounge.
Qatar Airways opened its exclusive Premium Lounge days after I visited Bangkok so I was a little upset somehow. But I will review how Miracle First Class Lounge differs from the business lounge that I visited a couple of months back.
Qatar Airways Check-In Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport
My flight departed at 19:25 PM and the check-in opened around 4 PM. I reached the airport around 5 PM and had a quick check-in process as there was no one in the First Class check-in area. The check-in staff was a little curious since my Zurich flight the next day was a turnaround and I am flying back to Frankfurt the next day.
With the boarding pass issued, I also received a separate lounge invitation card with my seat and flight details written by the staff.
Getting to Miracle First Class Lounge Concourse D
Clearing the security and immigration area located at the corner of the airport (near behind check-in counter U) which is exclusively used for first and business passengers, I walked about 5 minutes to reach the lounge located in concourse D.
There are four Miracle “First Class” lounges situated in Suvarnabhumi airport but currently, lounges at concourses C, D, F and one at G are currently operating. It is best to access the lounge near your gate as the airport is too big to move from concourses A, B, C to D, E, F, G.
Qatar Airways normally depart out of concourse E so I’ve decided to use the lounge at concourse D which was relatively larger than the others.
Miracle First Class Lounge Concourse D Operational Hours & Access Policy
Miracle First Class Lounge at concourse D is also operating 24 hours however the entry requirements are still confusing to me. All miracle Lounges at Suvarnabhumi Airport can be accessed by using Priority Pass and first/business class passengers. But at the entrance, there are digital signs showing a whole load of members are also able to access the lounges. So I am still trying to find out the access policies of each lounge.
Miracle First Class Lounge Concourse D Layout and Seating
The Miracle First Class Lounge has a large spacious area with the right amount of seats to accommodate First Class passengers. The lounge is divided into two sections: Dining and common areas. I will review the common area in this section and the dining area in the next section.
Unlike the Business Class Lounge, the dining area on the First Class is located on the right-hand side while the common area is on the left. Along the way to the dining area, wing chairs facing each other are placed by the window with a coffee table in between.
The common area features a bar, and a small snack bar and can accommodate around 50 passengers. The seats are placed mostly side by side so there is not much privacy but the number in the lounge will not bother you about privacy.
Snacks, light bites and beverages are also available in this area too.
On the corner of the lounge, there is an area that is partially blocked by a wall. This area had a long work table and a large table with three seats. I couldn’t tell whether it is a quiet area or a business center but surely was quiet and the recommended area to do some work without noise.
Miracle First Class Lounge Concourse D Dining Area
The dining area and bar are located at the edge of the lounge on the right-hand side. The dining area itself is actually located past another smaller common area.
Reaching the dining area, there are a combination of a dining table for two and fours and a pub table with lamps on each individual seat facing towards the window.
As I walked past the dining tables, there is a large buffet section with six different main dishes and a fruit and salad bar all laid on a luxurious marble stand. Opposite the buffet stand, pastries and desserts including ice creams are located.
I did not have a meal since I had to empty up my stomach for my feast on board my next flight. But not to mention, I had a bowl of quick chicken rice which was freshly prepared from the open kitchen area.
This open-style kitchen section is one of my favorite areas and is the spotlight of the lounge as you can see live cooking by the chefs.
Beverages are located beside the main buffet stand. There are different types of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available on the fridge as well as on the Nestlé machine.
The bar area is not separated but it is also along with the beverage section. At the Miracle First Class Lounge, there are two separate bar areas: One in the dining area and the other, a separate bar in the common area opposite the lounge.
Liquors are displayed on the rack with an ice box readied in front of it while beers and wines were stored in the fridge together with other drinks.
Miracle First Class Lounge Concourse D Bar
The main bar area is located in the common area, left of the lounge. As I mentioned above, there is a smaller bar in the dining area but the one in the common area had a more bar-like design with mood lights.
The type of liquors didn’t differ from that of the bar in the dining area but I think the display and the design of the bar made it look more attractive to pour a glass of drink.
Miracle First Class Lounge Concourse D Restroom and Shower Facilities
Miracle First Class Lounge’s restrooms and shower rooms are located at the center of the lounge, behind the decorative partition on the lounge’s entrance.
Behind the decorative wall, there are two private male and female restrooms. At first, I thought it was a regular public restroom so I followed one guy to enter the supposed ”Restroom.” But later I realized it was a private restroom and the guy was looking at me like what am I doing. Oops…😅
Shower rooms are located on the side of each restroom. There is a sign on the top so it is easy to navigate. The shower room was pretty big featuring a separate toilet and a urinal, a walk-in shower box and a sink.
Basic shower amenities like toothbrushes, lotions, etc. are prepared in the shower rooms. But if you need extra things you can always request one from the lounge staff.
Prior to my departure back on Qatar Airways First Class, I made a visit to the Miracle First Class Lounge at Suvarnabhumi Internation Airport. Since the Qatar Airways Premium lounge is still closed, all first-class guests are invited to Miracle Lounge.
The lounge was spacious with lots of comfortable seats and offered a wide variety of tasty local and international cuisines and beverages. But the only thing I am still confused is about its access policy.
|UPDATE: Qatar Airways reopened its Premium Lounge in Bangkok starting in September.|
