Al Reem Lounge, Abu Dhabi International (AUH), Terminal 1
Al Reem Lounge is located in Terminal1, right after passport and security control, with the entrance opposite the passage to the well-known round gate building in terminal 1.
Al Reem is a third party lounge used by a handful of airlines, it is also possible to gain access with several different lounge cards and credit cards. When Etihad lounges are at full capacity, they use the Al Reem Lounge for their Silver and Gold members travelling in economy, which can make the lounge very crowded during peak hours.
The lounge consists of a small lobby, with a reception desk where you sign in, and the main lounge, a right turn after the reception.
The lounge is generally very modern, sleek and stylish. Almost the entire interior is in different shades of gold, with the ceiling full of spotlights and mosaics on the walls. Everything is very well maintained.
If you go further into the lounge, there is an immersion with two additional floors with gold and grey armchairs. Here it is a bit calmer as many guests tend to stop at the first available seat.
Eating and Drinking
There is a good self-service buffet in the lounge, with a pretty extensive selection of hot and cold food which varies depending on the time of day. During the morning, breakfast dishes are available, and at lunch and dinner time, a variety of hot dishes. You will have no trouble putting together a decent meal. The lounge is open around the clock, and also offers a selection of sandwiches and snacks.
Non-alcoholic drinks are self service, if you want something alcoholic or a cup of freshly brewed coffee, there is a staffed bar.
Free Wifi is available throughout the lounge. According to the airport’s website, there is no business center with computers, there should, however, be laptops to borrow if you do not have your own.
There are several TVs as well as newspapers and magazines.
Showers and toilets are available in the lounge.
A modern, sleek and stylish lounge. Nice food and a good staffed bar. The only problem is that it can get fairly busy with many travellers having access.
