Since you're Sapphire you have access to all those lounges when flying on MH or any other OW airline.
However, if you're only flying domestically, you can only be in the domestic terminal which only has the MH Domestic Lounge.

Thanks for the answer, I am arriving from QR, is there any arrival lounge that I can use or should I directly head to the domestic lounge ?

You should be able to use the OW lounges in the satellite building then. Just make sure to head for the main terminal (and clear immigration) on time.

Are you sure MH provides arrivals lounge access for passengers travelling in QR?

Yup. Have experience with this. Also in this thread (first 2-3 pages) there's people who have done the same (albeit also 1 person who had less luck).
So, usually not a problem!

I think @Jeff_ is connecting to a domestic MH flight, so the basis for entry will be the onward MH flight rather than the inbound QR.

Follow the domestic transfer signs and clear immigration dedicated for domestic transfers right next to the domestic gates, makes for a much faster and easier connection.

So you can use the international MH lounge even if your next onward flight is domestic?

The current MH lounges in KL are way below par .
MH ought to look for directions for future lounges from CX HKG and QF SYD lounges .
Even following half of these amazing examples would be better than what we have been having to endure with thus far .

The main international lounge at the Sat building is open. That closes soon I think for a major reno. The regional lounge which is in the main terminal building is supposed to open at the end of Aug.

Not sure which airline you are flying out of KLIA with but the Sat lounge is accessible by the monorail from the main building anyways.
