Not many people are aware of the VIP Lounge at Malaga Airport. As you leave the large Duty Free Shop after Security, turn right and the VIP Lounge is just up the stairs If you feel like a bit of a treat, or have a delayed flight and want to catch up on some work / emails, the VIP Lounge is a great place to sit for a while in a very relaxed atmosphere with Free Wifi Access. It´s also worth a visit if you have a Priority Pass which gives you free access.
A word of warning! Don´t rely on the screens to show your flights! Flights are boarding 1 hour before the flight departure so you do need to keep an eye on the time and / or check with reception.
The VIP lounge reminds us of a “Hilton Hotel” lobby area, lots of nice oversized sofas and chairs, I can’t believe it will be ever be overcrowded due to the size of it, it’s huge at over 2,600sqm. Prices do seem to be going up and down slightly, so do check direct.
There are mixed reviews about the VIP Lounge, if you are looking for full on lunch and breakfast then you may be disappointed. If you are looking for a nice, quiet, relaxed place to sit with some drinks and snacks, then this area is perfect.
You can enter the VIP Lounge by either of the following,
The lounge is open every day from 6am to 11pm. Times may vary in summer months You can also make a reservation by Telephone: 0034 952 048 8544 952 074 675 Fax: 0034 952 048 822 or E-mail: salavipAGPT3@e-externas.aena.es
All snacks and drinks are included in the price of your entry. What’s on offer will change a little day to day, but generally there are cereals, danish pastries, biscuits, tea, coffee, soft drinks, olives & crisps. There are 2 TV areas with a large amount of seating, one is at the back and a bit more private, the other is to the left of the lounge overlooking the Internal Airport Garden. There are also computers and printers, free wifi access, meeting areas, an excellent selection of newspapers and magazines, air traffic information, fax service, 2 sets of nice clean toilets and also access for people with reduced mobility. There is also a small jewellery shop in the lounge as well.
All said and done €28.70 (price at time of entry) is a lot of money to pay, but if your flight is delayed and you want somewhere quiet to sit to pass the time, check your emails then it’s not bad value when you consider that you could easily spend €28.70 on snacks and drinks over a few hours in any airport.
