About The New ANA Lounges In Honolulu

The Spaces

ANA has said that both new lounges will offer unique features designed to allow passengers to “enjoy and relax every moment of their trip” and the airline has confirmed that there will be a dedicated jet bridge to allow premium cabin passengers to board its A380’s upper deck directly from the lounge.

The airline has also said that numerous design aspects have been incorporated into the lounges to evoke a “feeling of Japan” and to ensure passengers are as comfortable as possible.

These aspects include a family area and a traditional coffered ceiling created with Hawaiian wood.

Here’s how ANA has described its new facility:

The layout of the lounge itself takes inspiration from a fusion of Japanese and Hawaiian architectural and artistic elements, creating an immersive environment that captures the essence of these two great island cultures. Hawaii’s natural beauty is also echoed throughout the lounge, with striking images of sea, sky and trees featured prominently. Combining Hawaii’s natural beauty with Japanese hospitality, the lounge will present a welcoming atmosphere for all passengers.

ANA In-Lounge Dining

The ANA Suite lounge and the ANA Lounge will offer a combination of Hawaiian and Japanese meal options which the airline says will help “passengers experience the best of each culture side-by-side“.

The Hawaiian menu will feature dishes like macadamia crushed Mahi Mahi and Hawaiian BBQ chicken, while the Japanese buffet menu will consist of vegetable curry, tofu and vegetable chowder, rice bowls, shogayaki ginger fried pork, meat and tofu.

As well as food options open to flyers in the ANA Lounge, the ANA Suite Lounge will give flyers the additional option of an à la carte menu featuring udon noodles and chazuke broth.

Bottom Line

It’s been over 11 months since we were given the first details of ANA’s new lounge spaces at Honolulu Airport so it will be good to finally see the doors open and to get our first proper look inside the new facilities.

From what we’ve been told (and the limited images ANA has provided) both lounge spaces look promising but I’m a little concerned that the ANA Lounge area may get a little crowded.

A large number of premium cabin passengers and ANA/Star Alliance elites are being given access to the lounge and, not only can a lot of these passengers bring in guests, but the lounge will be accepting paying guests too – I have a feeling that the ANA Suite Lounge will be by far the calmer area to be in.

Any readers planning a visit to this lounge in the next few months?
