Clipper Lounge - Mumbai

Hello,
I'm a rookie here, so I'm sorry if I make any mistakes or if this topic has been discussed previously

I'm traveling to Mumbai soon, and get there at night while my next flight is at 9 am (domestic). I'm traveling economy on Jet Airways for my domestic flight, so I am assuming that I won't have lounge access.

I searched a few threads here and it looks like you can get access to the Clipper Lounge in the domestic terminal for INR 300-500. Can anyone please confirm this? Also, is the lounge open 24 hours? If you folks can recommend any alternate way of getting rest, that would be great!

Thanks!

AFAIK, it offers paid access..
A cursory search in this forum gives this and many other links..

It's been extended till Dec 31st, 2012..

However, the Calcutta Clipper Lounge was closed yesterday morning when I travelled, with no notice outside, whether it's permanently closed or getting renovated.. or may come to think of it, I was too early, considering they are 24 hours..

The CCU lounge has been under renovation for a while. The one in Mumbai 1B has totally disappeared and the one in 1A, when I last walked in, was totally deserted! It was spooky how there was one butler there and only me, and no food, and no drinks on display!

Hmm.. I heard about the lounge in Mumbai having disappeared altogether.. as for CCU- i travelled on 23rd Jan and the lounge was working.. Must have closed between then and now.. Thanks to Jet, I got access to the top deck lounge, so was covered..

I suppose the Mastercard promotion does not work with foreign Mastercards, so is there also the possibilty to pay for the entry in the International Terminal? Does is also cost 500INR?
