Thanks to Singapore's strategic location which makes Changi Airport a highly favourable destination for layovers. Changi Airport is an important hub in Asia serving more than 100 airlines that operate direct flights from Singapore to different destinations in Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, and North America.

Despite being a busy airport, Changi offers a calming atmosphere. The airport is beautifully designed with a touch of nature.

Changi Airport is the world's best airport for a reason. The lush greenery and abundance of natural elements as it houses over 2,000 trees and palms are its standout features. The airport is also known for its exceptional features, such as the tallest slide in any airport, free sightseeing tours for transit passengers, and a rooftop pool and jacuzzi. Jewel Changi Airport, a retail and entertainment complex within the airport, is home to the world's tallest indoor waterfall, the HSBC Rain Vortex.

Ambassador Transit Lounge

There are two Priority Pass lounges at Terminal 2 in Changi Airport. The first option which was closer to my departure gate was the SATS Premier Lounge which unfortunately denied me access saying they were already full. Thankfully, the Ambassador Transit Lounge was located not far away from the other lounge.

PRO TIP

The Ambassador Transit Lounge is situated airside, within the restricted zone, and is specifically designed for transit passengers who are travelling to another country via Singapore, without having to go through Singapore's arrival immigration.

Passengers arriving with plans to stay in the city are not permitted to stay in the Ambassador Transit Lounge. Departing passengers should note that most airline counters only open 3 hours before departure, hence access to the transit area before this is not allowed unless your airline provides early check-in.

My Visit to Ambassador Transit Lounge

I visited the Ambassador Transit Lounge in December 2023 located in Terminal 2 at Changi Airport while having a transit flight with a 2-hour layover at Changi Airport from a 12-hour flight from Munich Aiport. This was a perfect opportunity to relax at the lounge before the final leg of my flight to Manila.

Arrival

Ambassador Transit Lounge can be reached by taking Lift 25 to the entrance on Level 3 (The lift is located near the Orchid Garden, between DFS Wine & Spirits and Bee Cheng Hiang). Alternatively, you can take the escalator opposite the Longchamp shop to the third floor where a bridge leads you to the entrance of the lounge.

This escalator leading to the Sunflower Garden and Ambassador Transit Hotel – Terminal 2 (near Transfer F) will lead you also to the Ambassador Transit Lounge on Level 3.

When I arrived there was a male receptionist seemingly strictly taking care of the arrival of each lounge client. I quickly noticed how a female client ahead of me was trying to negotiate regarding her right to get admitted telling the staff she has the right membership card. The next person in line ahead of me like me was asked to present 3 different documents: passport, boarding pass and PriorityPass card. It was quite an unusual experience to be this strict before admission by the demand of presenting your passport to the staff in addition to a boarding pass and membership card which should have been enough. I can't recall the same experience in any previous lounge visits.

The receptionist can't be praised for quite unfriendly customer service. Furthermore, the receptionist attached a sticker to every guest's clothes showing up to what time and date the guest could stay.

Amenities and Facilities

Ambassador Transit Lounge featured complimentary amenities as well as other services subject to payment including use of international calls, fax facilities, gymnasium, bedrooms, business centre, massage, and spa services.

Food and Drinks

The lounge had a salad buffet and each food item was properly labelled. There were also warm food options like roasted chicken, rice, butter chicken, and spaghetti with tomato sauce. Vegetarian options were also available like the chye sim. Some fruits were on offer like oranges, and red and green apples. Bread could be taken next to the fridge where the apples and dairy products were stored. Ice cream was available for dessert. It was also notable that the lounge has a live cooking station where guests could order one's favourite soup for example.

Beverages included the typical soft drinks from a tap with ice cubes available. In addition, there were two types of juice drinks including apple and orange juice. Also, two coffee machines and a water dispenser were working fine. Alcoholic beverages were not self-service instead, you had to ask the receptionist if you wanted an alcoholic drink to be served once you completed the formalities on arrival. Guest were offered two welcome drinks and additional orders will be subject to payment. Even though the lounge is open 24 hours, they only serve alcohol from 6:00 to 00:00.

Ample Seatings

The lounge featured many seatings with different furniture designs and materials. For example, in the midsection of the lounge, there was a series of high-backed beige seats arranged in a row, each separated by wooden partitions to provide privacy. Above each seating area, white dome-shaped lamps hung from the ceiling, adding to the ambience. Decorative white lattice panels were fixed to the high partition walls, contributing to a modern and elegant aesthetic. Power outlets were available at the base of the partitions, providing convenience for charging electronic devices. The carpet in the lounge had an intricate blue and green pattern, contributing to the overall decorative theme of the setting.

Near the kitchen, there was a modern seating area for groups of travellers. It featured round dark-tinted glass tables with a metal base, around which are four dark upholstered chairs. The chairs had a sleek, high-back design. The floor was tiled with light-coloured tiles. The ambient lighting makes the lounge warm and inviting which follows a contemporary style.

Robot Dish Collector

Still unused in many lounges, a Pudu's robot was helping out to collect guest's dirty dishes. Even though there was one housekeeping staff during the visit, both of them worked collaboratively to collect dirty dishes from guests' tables promptly by checking around quite often.

Toilets

The lounge had unisex toilets which were found inside the same area as the shower rooms. The space was maximized. For example, you could wash your hands only in the common area as there were no sinks for washing hands inside the small toilets. The toilets were clean but one thing that caught my attention was the placement of paper towels close to the bins.

The lounge had 2 common toilets and two shower rooms plus an accessible shower/toilet room which was under maintenance during the time of my visit.

Shower Facilities

The use of shower facilities was complimentary as a lounge customer. There were two unisex shower rooms and also an accessible toilet which was under maintenance during my visit. It would be best if you inquired the reception about using the shower facilities so they can provide you with towels. Shower gel shampoo and hairdryer are provided.

The lounge had a fitness gym that guests could access for an additional fee. If you are planning to go for a workout, you are required to wear appropriate gym attire. The gym is open from 7 am to 10 pm and access is subject to availability.

Other Services

The lounge also had nap suites available for additional payment like the shower and gym facilities. I hadn't time to avail of these services due to time constraints.

The use of hairdryer and body moisturizers were complimentary for guests who use the shower facilities.

Rating

The lounge deserves a 4-star rating due to the extensiveness of the amenities and facilities it offers. The flexibility of options concerning the length of duration and whether to avail extra services is up to the passenger's needs, which is a great feature of the lounge being a transit lounge. Also, the great interior design of the lounge makes it cosy and comfortable. If there's to improve, it would be on the quality of customer service of the staff.

Bottom Line

Ambassador Transit Lounge in Terminal 2 Changi Airport offers extensive services with a great location in the World's Best Airport. However, my first impression of the lounge personnel didn't leave me quite a good memory. I wish the staff could have been friendlier. During the time of visit, there wasn't a long queue and the lounge was over half empty.

The lounge offers ample seating with a cool interior and every aspect of the lounge compensates for each other. The availability of different food options ranging from different warm meals and the existence of the live cooking station compensate somehow for the poor customer service of the receptionist. The possibility to avail of nap suits and use the gymnasium is also a great feature of the lounge not widely available in other lounges. Lastly, the overall aesthetic of the lounge is modern with every concept thoughtfully laid out creating a relaxing atmosphere for transit passengers.

Do I recommend this lounge to others? Yes, it will be a great place to replenish especially if you will be having many hours of layover at Changi Airport.
