Hey guys, it’s been a while since i’ve been around. I was bit occupied with works lately and a visit to this GVK Lounge was a part of it. I visited this amazing lounge during my recent trip to Mumbai. FYI, this lounge is located in Mumbai Airport – Terminal 2 and the access to this lounge is restricted to only business class travelers, domestic.
If you travel by economy class, you can access TFS Travel Club Lounge with cards, which is located just opposite to this lounge. Or, if you travel from Terminal 1, do check out Loyalty Lounge or Good Times Bar. I’ve been to Mumbai T2 terminal earlier but didn’t get a chance to visit this lounge. This time i fortunately got upgraded to JetAirways Premiere (Business class) and so I was able to access this lounge. So here it goes,
Mumbai GVK Lounge Experience
They verified my ticket with someone on phone and then i was allowed in, takes a couple of minutes. I was surprised to see the crowd (especially in dining area) as the access is only for business class travelers. But one thing that makes you feel privileged is, most guys around are suited up, well dressed and are in perfect formal looks. It’s obvious that these guys should be handling C level corporate roles.
Seating and interiors:
The lounge is pretty big and good enough to accommodate Mumbai terminal’s traffic. It has lounge area, bar area, then comes the dining area with different set of seating arrangements with small and high stools overlooking tarmac where you could see flights moving in and out.
It has Luxurious interiors with all fresh looks around. You can see the flights descending towards the airport but can’t see the actual landing. I spent some time spotting the incoming flights while dining.
Food & Drinks:
You get almost everything here – chats, soup, starters, main course buffet, desserts. It’s typically like a 4 star hotel buffet. I had all those chat items: Sev poori, Dahi poori and Bhel poori. It tastes so delicious that I’ll never miss them if I visit again.
Then moved to starters and main course, all of which are pretty tasty as well. I was roaming with plates around for more than a hour 😛 Then you’ve a choice of cool drinks/tea/coffee and i had coke, you’re basically spoilt for choice.
I’ve added this as a separate factor now to emphasis the fact that i was treated a lot better here than any other lounge i’ve ever been. There are always guys around you to take care of your needs. They’re super polite and takes care of things faster.
Compared to the set of lounges i’ve visited in domestic sector, i would rate it as #1 Domestic Airport lounge in India, as it deserves to be.
