The first lounge I visited as part of my around-the-world trip with Star Alliance earlier this month was the Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge.

It is one of three Star Alliance Lounges at Delhi airport with the other two being Lufthansa Lounge and Air India Lounge. As a side note, the Air India Lounge is the only one that is open 24/7.

The SilverKris Lounge can be a bit difficult to find, as one must pass through a little corridor to the right of the main transit hall. From there, one has to take an elevator to the third floor where it is located together with other lounges including the Lufthansa Lounge and the Emirates Lounge.

Lounge Overview

While the lounge is cozy, it was heavily crowded at the time of my visit, and I was hardly able to find an empty seat. The only space I’ve managed to get myself was on a bar stool in the buffet area – not a seat ideal for relaxing.

Because of the fact that the lounge was full, I did not feel comfortable taking photographs of the lounge itself, but I’ve managed to capture all the food and beverages (more on that further down).

In general, however, the lounge has high-density seating arrangements, and when it gets full it can be quite stuffy inside. As for the lounge’s restrooms, they are shared with Lufthansa Lounge. There is one shower stall available in the lounge as well.

Finally, the lounge also offers wi-fi. To access it, one had to use password which was provided at the reception by one of the friendly agents.

Personally, I had ratatouille soup, slices of chicken ham, fresh salad, prawn curry and fish stew with rice. I also had mocha pastry, along with Jack Daniel’s on the rocks. While the food was nothing spectacular, it provided for a decent quick bite.

Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge Delhi Summary

As it seemed like I visited the lounge during the busiest time of the day, it was not too comfortable and so I went to the Lufthansa lounge next door.

Overall, however, the food spread was quite good, and the drink selection was decent as well. As such, I believe that during quieter times of the day, the SilverKris Lounge in Delhi can be a quite comfortable place to relax before a flight.
