Vistara Lounge at Delhi Airport Review (T3 Domestic)

By | April 21, 2018

Vistara Lounge at Delhi International Airport is more like a business class lounge that allows access only to Business Class passengers and Club Vistara Gold & Platinum members. That means overall less crowd compared to the all-time crowded Plaza Premium Lounge at Delhi T3.

My Experience at Delhi Vistara Lounge

Here’s my experience in visiting Vistara Airport Lounge at Delhi international airport (domestic departures from T3 Terminal) during my DEL-BLR trip in Vistara Business Class.

Check in

I was allowed in just by showing my Vistara business class boarding pass – Super Fast entry. They didn’t even scan the boarding pass, which was interesting to note.

Seating & Interiors

The lounge has good set of seating area, that includes:

  • Regular lounging area
  • Dining area
  • Recliners – facing tarmac
  • Meeting room
  • Reserved room (for VIP’s)

Given the number of passengers accessing the lounge compared to its size, you can expect not more than 50% occupancy at most times, which means more pleasant experience.

The availability of the recliners in the lounge is a good thing but as they got only two of them, it’s almost always occupied.

Its important to know that the lounge doesn’t have a washroom within, but you can still access the common airport washroom, located ~20 steps away from the lounge.

Food & mocktail

The food spread in Vistara lounge is pretty decent. You can expect starters, main course and some fruits/desserts though they could improve a bit, to be on par with GVK lounge.

Mocktails: The best part of the lounge, atleast to me, is the availability of mocktails. Even-though we have cold drinks in all lounges, availability of mocktails does make a difference. I tried two mocktails:

  • Litchi (love it)
  • Strawberry crusher (its good)

I actually didn’t see any other passengers have mocktail in the lounge, maybe they didn’t know about it? Anyways, have a look at the pictures below:

Service

You can get things done, whenever you want it. From serving mocktails to other minor assistance, you can get help from them.

During my trip, there were frequent power shut down in the lounge and i wasn’t able to see the boarding status, so i asked the lounge supervisor about it.

She was kind enough to inform me personally when the boarding began. I’m not sure whether the business class boarding pass is doing this trick or its normal treatment for everyone else there.

Facilities at Delhi Vistara Lounge (T3 Domestic)

  • Wifi: Aiport Wifi
  • Food: Yes, decent spread
  • Ambiance: Good.
  • Recharge Station: Yes
  • Complimentary Access to: Business Class, CV Gold & Plat members, Lounge access vouchers
  • CardExpert Lounge Rating: 4.5/5 

Bottom line

If you’re flying Vistara from Delhi, Vistara lounge is probably the best place to spend your free time at airport as other lounges accepting Mastercard/Visa in Delhi Airport are all way too much crowded lately. On top of that, availability of mouth watering Mocktail’s makes it a unique place to refresh yourself before the flight.

    Ahh, I got 2 vistara lounge access vouchers and 2 higher class upgrades which I got through some credit card free membership . They will expire in June. Currently I am in UK, and no plans till August. Can family members use this upgrade and lounge vouchers.

      Yes you can. All you need to do is add them as a “nominee” on your a/c.

    After reading ur review, looks like Jet will have tough time retaining its customers (specially Business class) once Vistara flies pan India.

    Hi Sid,

    If you’re CV Gold member, can you access the lounge even if you’re not flying Vistara?

    The dinner/lunch is not great but yes, the snacks/starters are great. The most relaxing lounge I have visited. Seating is nice specially the recliners. The only problem is that u need to be either gold/platinum or business class passenger. Also, need to fly Vistara at that time.

    after visiting the GVK lounge in Mumbai and being spoilt by them , i found vistara lounge to be sub par

    did BOM-DEL-BOM on revenue biz class tickets

    and also , the older planes on vistara have their biz seats which have started squeaking , espically the leg recliners…now this maybe also due to the fact i got the youngest in the fleet on the outbound to DEL (VT TNK) and inbound on one of the oldest ( VT TTB)

    but just being 3 years old now , their maintenance issues are evident…hope they dont go the AI or 9W way (Heard 9Ws A332s are crumbling in biz)

      True with leg recliners. Had that issue during one of the trip. Hope they fix them soon.

        Is the food free for all? Will it be free for me in economy class or shall I upgrade to business class?

    Hi. I have just become gold member of Vistara and I had been recently twice to this lounge. They have changed the menu of Mocktails and they do not provide Leechi and Strawberry Crushers anymore. They have added more options now. The food options are still limited and they still serve on Vegetable Paneer dish for veg, one non-veg dish, dal, rice and roti for lunch, besides the usual salad. Evening snacks also I have seen its same Paneer Tikka, Chicken Tikka and Spring Roll.
    Besides they do still do not scan Boarding Pass if its Business Class, or Gold or Platinum mentioned on the boarding pass.
