Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport is home to a number of lounges branded with the ‘Miracle’ name, and as well as being lounges that you can pay pay to access just by walking in, they are also lounges that can be accessed by members of various lounge programs (e.g. Priority Pass), and they are lounges that some airlines send their passengers to if they don’t have their own branded lounge at the airport.

On this trip, I visited the 24-hour Miracle First and Business Class lounge courtesy of Qatar Airways. Qatar Airways has its own lounge at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport, but, if you’re flying on a ‘Business Lite’ fare, you don’t get access to that lounge. Instead, you’re given an invitation to one of the airport’s Miracle Lounges.

My Qatar Airways flight was departing from Gate G3 so it made sense for me to choose the lounge at Gate G2 for my visit (after I had already checked out the Cathay Pacific Business Class lounge and the JAL Sakura Lounge).

This is one of the large contract lounges that I’ve visited, and you can get a sense of its size as you walk up to the entrance opposite Gate G2 and see that its set across two levels (there’s a second entrance to the lounge on the upper level as well).

Once you have checked-in on the lower level, you’ll find that the lounge stretches out to your left with a food service/dining area and a series of sitting areas.

I’ll come on to the food and drinks on offer a little later as this isn’t the only part of the lounge where it is offered.

The rest of the seating areas on this level look like this:

a row of tables and chairs in a room a room with couches and chairs a group of people sitting in chairs in a room a room with brown leather chairs and a wood floor

Now, this is where things get a little strange.

There’s a pair of escalators joining the lower level to the upper level and on the lower level there’s a sign that clearly reads ‘First Class’.

There is, however, nothing stopping anyone from accessing this ‘First Class’ level, so it’s hard to see what the point of this is. Once you’re in the lounge, you’re free to go wherever it is in the lounge that you’d like to go.

The upper level, like the lower level, is split between various sitting areas …

a room with brown leather chairs and tables a room with brown chairs and tables

… and area that seems to be set up for working …

a room with white walls and tables and chairs

… and an area offering food which sits next to a self-serve bar.

Across both floors of the lounge, this is what the food and drinks on offer looked like during this visit.

The hot food on offer included:

  • Spaghetti & chicken sausage.
  • Pork with black pepper sauce.
  • Stir fried vegetables.
  • Green chicken curry.
  • Steamed rice.
  • Cream of carrot soup.
  • Cream of mushroom soup.
  • Clear chicken soup.
  • Chicken sausage roll.
  • Vegetable samosas.

The cold food items included a variety of sandwiches, salad items, fruit, yogurts, ice creams, cookies, and pastries.

Some of these items were available on both levels of the lounge, but some were specific to either the lower or upper level.

The last two features of the lounge that I need to point out are the showers and the power outlets.

There are separate shower areas for men and women and there didn’t seem to be any kind of wait list or check-in place for the showers – if a shower cubicle was free, you could just walk in.

The showers and the cubicles aren’t going to win any design or beauty awards, but they were clean, and they worked, so that’s probably going to be good enough for most travelers.

As far as power outlets go, the lounge has quite a few and they’re (mostly) well positioned in the various seating areas.

It’s worth noting, however, that the power outlets are not of the universal variety …

… so some guests will need to make sure that they have adapters with them if they are to charge their devices.

Also, most areas of the lounge didn’t appear to offer USB ports so, again, if you think that you may need to charge a phone or tablet, make sure you bring the right kind of adapter/connectors.

Final thoughts

This was the third Bangkok airport lounge that I visited on this trip and, a little surprisingly, I think it’s probably the second best of the three.

The Cathay Pacific Business Class lounge was the clear winner, but the seating in the JAL Sakura lounge was no better than the seating in the Miracle Lounge, and the food and drink selection in the Miracle Lounge seemed better than what the JAL lounge offered.

So, while the JAL lounge gives guests marginally better access to power (it has a plentiful supply of USB ports), the Miracle Lounge is, overall, the better lounge of the two, and that’s not a conclusion that I was expecting to come to.

  1. You can use the CX lounge with QR business light fare, its one of the better lounges, also close to concourse G. Or, if you are lucky and they are open, try the QF lounge, also nice.
