Lounge with a view?

I have an upcoming day at SIN. I'm an aviation enthusiast so the 8 hour stop will be mainly watching and photographing planes. I will arrive from HKT on Jetstar, I think into T1. It was my intention to spend most of the day at the T1 spectators area. I see that lounge access is pretty cheap at SIN so I am wondering if any of the "paid for" lounges have good views as they would have WiFi, air conditioning, food etc. Apart from the viewing area is there a particular gate that would be better to go to?

I'm not sure that I will want to go off airport to watch the action unless there is a comfortable place with the above facilities.

Any help and suggestions much appreciated.

I believe it is the DNATA lounge in T1 has a view of the tarmac, but I don't really recall the precise layout

I don't recall there being a view from the current d'nata lounge.
The previous location of the lounge might have given a view of the tarmac, but the lounge was moved and upgraded a few years ago.

There is a Plaza Premium lounge that's near Gate C1, but I've never been inside. Not sure if it has a view of the gate. You could perhaps confirm that with the lounge staff before you pay for entry?

Plaza premium has tarmac view, but glare/shutters may prevent you from enjoying it. Food is pretty good (typically order at counter laksa/chicken rice

Dnata t3(has pic of similar obstructed view): https://onemileatatime.com/dnata-lou...irport-review/

​​​​​​Dnata had okay satay at thr buffet section

. Also, an empty corridor next to dnata lounges has same view (typically you see people sleeping overnight there)

i think the transit lounge t2 has an outdoor smoking section facing tarmac, not obstructed, very good

Or the free rooftop outdoofcactus garden, can buy a beer at the bar

Thanks for raising the shutter issue. I also had the same issue in The Private Room
