Etihad First Class Lounge & Spa, Abu Dhabi International Airport
This features its own cigar lounge, with nine top varieties of cigars, paired with single-malt whiskies and Cognac. At the Six Senses Spa, you can get a massage, or go for a 15-minute complimentary style and shave. Etihad has its own fitness center (with Technogym equipment and yoga mats) for those looking to break a sweat, and a “Relax and Recline” room, featuring Poltrona Frau leather chairs and a soothing video wall for those looking to chill out.
“Etihad’s first class lounge offers a truly amazing experience that perfectly balances ostentatious luxury with first-rate hospitality and service,” says Lou Haverty, a travel blogger at The First Class Travel Guide. “Between the restaurant, bar, cigar lounge, spa, and gym, the experience is so unique that, if you’re not careful, you might miss your flight.”
