Lounge Review: Borobudur Lounge at Yogyakarta Adisutjipto

Lounge Review: Borobudur Lounge at Yogyakarta Adisutjipto

After being dropped of at the Yogyakarta domestic terminal by my guide and checking in for my flight back to Jakarta, I headed airside. As I had plenty of time, I visited Borobudur Lounge which belongs to the Priority Pass network.

The entrance to the lounge is located at the very end of the airside waiting area of the domestic terminal and is very easy to find.

Lounge Overview

Borobudur Lounge is divided into two large rooms – one to the left and one to the right of the reception.

The one to the right of the reception is a seating area with a TV and some chairs arranged around coffee tables. The entrance to the restroom is also located in this part of the lounge.

The area to the left of the reception contains similar seating as the area above. It is divided into two by the buffet counter which houses the drinks on one side and food on the other side. There is also a small “business center” with two computers.

Food & Drinks Selection

For being a domestic lounge, Borobudur Lounge offers a decent food selection.

At the time of my visit – towards the end of the day – there were some light snacks.

Snacks

Jajan pasar – Indonesian snacks.

Besides the snacks, there were also some hot dishes. Of course, one of them was nasi goreng – Indonesian fried rice.

Borobudur Lounge Yogyakarta Summary

While the furniture of Borobudur Lounge was a bit outdated and even a bit dirty in some cases, the lounge offers a great place to wait for a flight. This is especially valuable since the airside area is quite small and can get crowded.

Furthermore, the food selection was quite decent – especially given that most people waiting there only have an hour or so of flight time ahead of them. Combined with the cheap paid entrance of about 6 dollars, if you have an hour or two to wait in the terminal, Borobudur Lounge is worth considering even if you do not have Priority Pass membership.

Before you go... Here are 3 quick tips for travel:

For your convenience: Price comparison sites

When searching for flights and accommodation, use comparison sites that will summarize prices from a variety of sources including the airline sites and online travel agencies for you. I recommend HotelsCombined for comparing hotel prices and Momondo for comparing flight prices.

For your comfort: Unlimited airport lounge access

If you generally fly in economy class and don’t have an airline status, I recommend considering a Priority Pass Prestige membership which will give you unlimited access to over 1,200 lounges at more than 500 airports all over the world.

For your peace of mind: Travel insurance

Make sure you have adequate insurance coverage - whether through your credit card or through insurance policy purchased separately. This will help save your trip when you get sick or things stolen on the road, in other words, when things go wrong. In case you didn't get your travel insurance yet, I recommend getting a free quote from World Nomads. To save some time, you can also use the form below.
