Plush, exclusive airport lounges are a privilege and often closed off to the non-frequent flyer. However, Singapore’s Changi Airport is looking to change that with The Shilla Beauty loft located at Terminal 3. So whether you’re flying coach or first-class, be sure to check out the pre-flight pampering options situated above its multi-brand beauty store on level one.
Chanel Beauty Lounge
From the moment you step in and are gracefully welcome by a concierge, you will be immersed in the world of Coco Chanel – in the facets of skincare, makeup and fragrance services artfully tailored for the traveller. Arguably the most exclusive of the four brands represented, this by-invitation only Beauty Lounge offers pre-flight makeovers, flash manicures and exclusive products. Alternatively, clients can simply enjoy some light refreshments while browsing through the Chanel books on display. There’s even a specially-designed skincare cocoon in which you’ll be treated by dedicated experts as you lie back and relax. Now we could reveal more, but we wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise.
