As seen and experienced by us while in transit at klia2
We arrived from Jeju Island (read our amazing experience in Jeju HERE) and we had to transit at klia2, waiting for our connecting flight to Kota Kinabalu. We cleared immigration and headed to Level 2M, gateway@klia2 where the new Plaza Premium Lounge is located (next to Aerotel).
There are actually two Plaza Premium Lounges on level 2M. One is located next to Aerotel (marked as A in the map above) and the other one is located opposite Aerotel (to the left if you are coming from arrival on level 2, using the escalator to level 2M). During this recent trip, we chose to chill out at the lounge located next to Aerotel.
Read our previous experience at the Plaza Premium Lounge opposite Aerotel, HERE. Get more information or make a reservation in any of the 6 lounges by Plaza Premium Group at klia and klia2, HERE.
The Plaza Premium Lounge welcomes all travellers, regardless of airline or class of ticket to refresh and relax prior to boarding. Note that this lounge is located within gateway@klia2 (outside airport restricted area) at Kuala Lumpur International Airport Terminal klia2. If you are transiting in Kuala Lumpur, please note that you must be in possession of a valid travel document and clear security to enter Malaysia in order to access this lounge.
The first thing one will get to see when coming to this lounge is the reception area where friendly staff will check reservation or process information and fee for walk-in guests. After this point, guests are free to choose their preferred seating area (and lounge according to the number of hours permitted).
At the time of writing and according to Plaza Premium Official Website, the entrance fees (lounge use) are as follows:
2 Hours (USD 49)
5 Hours (USD 66)
10 Hours (USD 72)
(Note: One time entry only, multiple entry is not allowed. Guests who needs to visit the shopping mall or do something else outside the lounge are advised to do so before of after visiting the lounge. There will be no re-entry allowed).
This particular lounge is open 24 hours, daily. It is important to note that compared to the other Plaza Premium Lounge (opposite Aerotel), there are no shower facilities available here.
Part of the seating area in this lounge comes with ceiling to floor glass window that overlooks the shopping mall of gateway@klia2. Sizewise, this lounge is bigger than the other lounge opposite Aerotel. It has modern look as well as comfy sofas.
There are also sections for guests to have space and do their work, dining tables that seats two and four pax as well as a number of communal dining tables. There is no announcement here but guests may track their flight’s information displayed on TV screen.
Food and beverages are served 24 hours according to the time of the day. If you are here in the morning, you will get to see breakfast, noon is lunch and so on. The first counter serves beverages and varieties of bread, cookies and some other titbits. Coffee machine is available right before the buffet station that serves starters, main course and noodles.
Talking about food..we're recently listed by www.brandballot.com as one of their 2018' Top 150 Food Blogs (Click HERE)
Scrumptious foods are served at a different counter, near to dining tables. We were here in the early evening and at 6pm, dinner was served. Menu is rotated daily and during our visit, the main course were of Chicken Sambal, Fried Noodles and Mix Vegetable with Oyster Sauce.

Other side dishes were also served such as:
Buns with filling
Vegetarian option and spaghetti
Fans of noodles will not be disappointed as there is a noodle section where guests may choose their favourite from the list! We had Assam Laksa and it was awesomely delicious! Those wishing to have more options may order something from The Bar’s menu (reasonably priced). Click The Bar Menu to view their whole list of food and beverages.
Other facilities available at this lounge are:
Three meeting rooms which can accommodate 4 to 22 persons in boardroom style; ideal for product launches, cocktail events and business meetings.
VIP Room for 4 persons. This room is available upon request and may not be available all the time. At times, entry is by invitation only (inquire for further information).
We’re fully satisfied with what we have seen and experienced during the visit to this particular lounge. It was a seamless transit thanks to the lounge’s location and facilities. It’s also nearby to the shopping mall where we ventured for a while prior coming to this lounge.
What we love most was how convenient it was to casually walk to the check-in and departure area, which took us less than 10 minutes! Transit at klia2 has never been easier; Plaza Premium Lounge was indeed the catalyst to our seamless transit! Next time you are in klia2 and need to have a place to peacefully lounge while enjoying greater facilities, visit the Plaza Premium Lounge, gateway@klia2 (next to Aerotel).
