TLV KD Lounge Massage chair room - What's it used for now?

Hi,

In the TLV KD lounge right now and noticed they have moved the massage seats out of the room they were in into the main area (upstairs) and closed the room.

There seem to be 4 arm chairs and a table in there now…
Anyone know what they are using it for?

And I have another question:
Does anyone think they will fix the two massage chairs that aren't working?
(they might wait until the thrid one also stops working and throw all three out).

I guess enough people complained. They now have three new massage chairs and all of them work...

Do you know when they replaced them? Last time I was there, 2 seats worked and 1 did not. Of the 2 that did, 1 had an annoying screen..

Right - having passed through the TLV KD Lounge within the last 12 hours, I can now report back on this!

They have replaced the previous chairs with 3 new ones. They seem to be alright, although they are not touchscreen (perhaps this will work out better - the last ones were touchscreen!).
They are situated outside the room that they used to be in.

The room has been converted into a cigar smoking room - a type of 'Havana Cuba Club' concept.

I have pictures for all of this, and when I get a moment, I'll upload them and link them in so that everyone can see them

So the chairs are no longer in a room, but rather outside in that loft? The privacy was nice. Maybe now you could watch the TV that was outside last time while in the massage chair
