ANA Int値 Business/*G Lounges at HND/NRT/KIX (consolidated)

As I'm in NRT often and just recently, I thought I'd post some photos.

These are from June 28, 2017 in the lounge near Gate 52.

Mod - I searched for a generic thread but did not find one. Feel free to merge.

Having said that, they have an absolutely massive turnover in this lounge, and since no one pays a membership fee to be in there, it's not exactly a money making enterprise. Truth be told, it's better then the OZ lounge in ICN, and still much better than any standard UA or AC lounge, but far behind a LH J lounge or SQ J lounge, but it's also a comfort spot for me with many fond memories so I won't complain too much.

I do envy you though, getting to travel to Japan so often - that's the job I've been seeking for years

Assume you also saw these photos I just took the other day.. I'll be back there next week and take a few more. The ANA NRT has been my other home for almost 3 years. LOL. Later on I'll be back at HND as well.

Sure, the main food items don't change much - although I was surprised to see they did not have noodles and there were dumplings instead.

But I find it rather peaceful (the one at gate 52). I like having my Noodle Bar treat, some salad, some mini-Lindts and cold water and I'm a happy camper.

Thankfully, I leave there and head to the gate just as the late afternoon crowds roll in.

Thanks a lot for the photos. Love ANA lounge. Of course, SilverKris lounges are great too. But they're great in different ways.

Curry is now something you have to order? I thought that curry was part of the buffet, not made-to-order, unless I'm remembering wrong. I like to serve my own curry since I like my curry:rice portion 4:1 instead of 1:1.

IIRC the curry at HND is at the buffet but at NRT you get it from the noodle bar... things might have changed from when I was last there though (but looking at the pictures of the food it seems like they haven't )

Actually, now that you say that, I think you're right.

ANA @ NRT near gate 52

Got there just before the afternoon crowds.

In addition to the photos I posted upthread, I took these views last week. These are from the front part of the lounge.

Always nice views out the window. And of course, I am perpetually impressed with the smart designs. Each seat has a side storage table, under which you can place your carry-on. Unlike almost every other lounge I've been to, people leave bags all over the place and it blocks access as well as being a general nuisance and an obstruction in many lounges.

Moving to the back part of the same lounge, a few photos.

Massive seating areas, a second food station, 3 private rest cubicles in the back, 2 of which have those massage chairs.

The sake station (from my photos upthread) is where I stood when taking the photo of the second food station.

ANA @ NRT in Satellite 4

I noticed the 2 hot food items were different than the other lounge. As per photos in my first post upthread, the main lounge had the chicken and potato wedges plus the pork dumplings.

This lounge had the noodles and some sort of stew with what looked like tofu and curry. Dish was empty, so I did not take a photo.

Order window for the noodle bar is around the back.

Was happy to have my soba noodles and vegetable tempura again.

Also took photos of the fun beer machine.

ANA Business Lounges at HND (consolidated)

These are from July 25 at the HND ANA lounge near gate 110.

Compared to my previous visit, I found the lounge very crowded when I arrived. The front food station area was packed with people looking at and/or selecting food items. There were those who seem to look lost and wandered slowly and it was impossible to actually get past anyone standing there.

I also found it strange to see some people wearing their back-packs as they moved about in the food area. This added to the challenge of trying to get around some people. (I certainly understand those who did not ant to leave their bag unattended even though there is a seating area right there facing the windows where you could easily see your bag on one of the bar stool type chairs.)

I decided this would be a good time for a shower.

Anyway, eventually some of this crowd cleared out for their flights and it was quiet for a while until those with late afternoon flights arrived in the lounge.

Here are some views of the front parts of the lounge including the food stations, and seating, followed by some food items.

And the end are 3 photos from the second food station at the back of the lounge. It was not crowded back there and I found it more pleasant.

The Noodle Bar is up front in the first food section.

There are seating areas (bar stool type) in both food areas. There are a number of sections of workstation seating (long white counter tables with seating). There is seating near the windows and seating further inside. Finally, there is also a nice, quiet section at the back. I noticed some signs saying some like “please do not bring food into this section”.

And now for the ANA HND Shower rooms....

Spotless as always. Nice basket of towels and very useful amenities.

On the counter near the basket is a small fan. Extremely helpful. Not only has it been over 30C outside, the showers do not seem to have a/c or ventilation - at least none that I could see or feel. (BTW, I noticed a similar problem with the UA showers in HKG, and some of the CX showers in HKG. Odd).

I like that there is a small padded chair to sit on, but there is also a small bag rack which was great for my carry-on.

On the wall is a rack with an attached large-size hangar plus 2 hooks. (Another hangar would have been helpful). A clean floor mat/towel was also folded and hanging on the rack.

The ANA showers remind me of the BR ones at the Infinity lounge in TPE - spotless, functional, well-supplied and really welcome before a 13 hour flight.

And, just because.....the toilet buttons. I notice a number of washrooms (including some in the lounge) have a button or wall panel for the flushing sound.

Please use his thread for discussion of the international ANA business lounges at HND, NRT and KIX. A wikipost hasn’t been created for all to share information.
