Lounge Review: Marhaba Lounge Ninoy Aquino International Airport

The Marhaba lounge, also known as the Priority Pass Lounge, is located near Gate 9 at Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport. It is probably the second smallest lounge I have ever visited, after the Thai Airways Business Class lounge in Phuket International Airport. Despite its size, it provides a much-needed respite from the crowds and long queues at the check-in counters before immigration.

The food and drinks section, relative to the size of the lounge, is limited.

Despite the lounge’s small size, it has shower rooms, which are a saving grace if you have just completed a long flight and are looking forward to some rest before your next journey.

Had I not received a lounge invitation from the airline, I likely would not have paid full price for entry, unless I were in dire need of a shower or a quiet place to relax. While there are Starbucks and cafes available in the public waiting area, seats were hard to come by during the time I was there.
