I got a chance to visit Plaza Premium Lounge at International Airport New Delhi.
Plaza Premium Lounge is located near the food court, take elevator after clearing your security check, cross the food court and go at the end of corridor.
Normal charges are $27+taxes to access the lounge but there are…
.. Two ways to get the free access to premium lounge
- Using Priority Pass Membership
- Using Visa or Mastercard Lounge Access Program
I am holding HDFC Regalia First credit card that comes with benefits of both. (Read HDFC Regalia Credit Card Review)
I showed them my priority pass and they let me in without any charges (I yet have to verify the statement of Priority Pass for any hidden charges)
Seating inside the plaza lounge
It was not very crowded when I entered however I heard from friends that Plaza premium is usually crowded because a lot of banks are offering complementary access to lounges.
There are two type of seating, one with comfortable sofa to relax and the other with chair/table for food & laptop use.
I did not have much time so I grabbed a seat with chair & table.
Food at Plaza Premium Lounge
There were a lot of options for the food (starters as well as main course) but the menu was Indian.
Since T3 is an international airport, I was expecting the international food menu.
If you are not a fan of Indian food then avoid sitting in Plaza Premium Lounge at T3 terminal of IGI New Delhi Airport.
I was not very hungry so I took some starters and salads.
If you are stopping by lounge in the evening time then you might be looking for some alcohol.
They have good options available (at no extra cost)
Enjoy your break at your nearest lounge when you travel international.
I had a decent experience at Plaza premium lounge but there are quite high number of negative reviews online.
Most of the negative reviews are about the crowd and food quality.
I think if you are getting complementary access to premium lounge then you will feel good. But if you are spending $27 then your expectations would be high from the staff and facilities.
