Is the Concorde Room at Heathrow too common for you? There may be a new option as the world's most exclusive airport lounge is now open and available for the very wealthy.
Located in a nondescript corner of Heathrow Terminal 5 is The Windsor Suite, a lounge formerly reserved for VIP's who have their name on records of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office no longer provide funding to BAA for its use and the lounge is now available to those who have money to burn.
The Windsor Suite is equipped with a bombproof glass roof, marble floors, white leather sofa's and bonsai trees. It is also split into eight seperate lounges so that each party have their own private area. All of these perks do come at a price, £1500+vat to be specific, this entitles guests to:dedicated secure drop off / pick up forecourt at Heathrow, private lounge for up to six passengers, light refreshments in the private lounge, private security area for passenger screening, limousine transfer direct to or from the aircraft, check-in and baggage taken care of on departure, passports and baggage taken care of on arrivals and total privacy and security throughout the process.
A different lounge for a different world!
