How big is the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai?

HUGE! Don’t worry about finding a space to sit in the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai, this is one of the biggest airport lounges I’ve ever been in. The Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai is actually located on a separate floor to the ‘regular’ airport, and stretches along the entire airport shopping concourse, tucked away above all the chaos of departures.

The Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai is biggest than you’ll expect, and each time you visit, you will find new little nooks to enjoy, or rooms to discover.


What is the seating like?

There are plenty of different kinds of seating in the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai. Because the lounge is so big – they’ve really been able to fill it with plenty of seating choice for all kind of passengers.

For example, if you fancy sitting somewhere quiet, with a little more privacy – you’ll find little ‘napping’ rooms with loungers. See below.

If you’d rather sit at a table and eat and work – then the more tradiitonal dining style area will probably suit you more. See below.

There’s also ‘bar’ style seating, and lounge style seating (similar to what you’d find in a member’s club). See below.

There is also a more relaxed lounge area, with loungers and a chilled out vibe. This is great if you want to relax, but don’t necessarily need the peace and quiet of the napping rooms. See below.

In short, there are so many places to sit and enjoy the lounge, and so many different varieties of seats, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

We’d recommend when visiting the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai for the first time, to explore the lounge properly before committing to a seat or an area. Obviously, you can change seats freely, but if you’re anything like us, you’ll want to base yourself in a little area for the couple of hours and settle in. So, before committing and settling, make sure you’ve had a proper walk around the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai, so you know exactly what’s on offer.


Do I need to dress smart to enter the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai?

In short, not really.

This is a business class lounge (yes) but that doesn’t mean everyone in there is dressed as a business traveller. All kinds of people use the lounge (from couples on their honeymoon, to families and solo travellers). Whatever you’re wearing for your flight, will be fine to wear in the lounge, there’s no ‘smart dress code’ for entering.

Yes, inside the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai, you’ll find several buffet locations and snack counters. The selection is really good actually, we’re always pleasantly surprised by how good the food is there.

Different parts of the lounge will offer different types of food – for example, some food areas will serve traditional Arabic breakfasts, and some will offer a more continental style. We particularly love the dinner selection, as last time we visited they had lots of lovely food on offer, like currys and naans. So it’s just your choice, which you opt for.

How can I spend my time in the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai?

It’s really up to you, there aren’t any ‘rules’ as to how you should spend your time waiting for your flight. We usually grab something to eat from the buffets, and then sit and read with a few drinks, or watch the sport in the TV areas of the lounge. But it’s completely up to you, the lounge is designed specifically so you can spend time doing/enjoying your time however you choose. Whether that be reading one of the magazines they provide, napping, working, eating, or watching TV.

Can I shower in the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai?

Yes! And this is one of the big advantages of using the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai. The showers are plentiful (We have never needed to queue or wait to use one) and they’re beautifully presented too. It’s like stepping into a shower at your own mini-spa. It’s a really lovely feature of the lounge, and it’s something we recommend taking advantage of!

Yes there is – so don’t worry about staying connected during your time using the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai. Whether you’re sending work emails or online shopping – you’ll be able to do it.


Can I leave the lounge to shop, once I’ve entered it?

Yes you can, that’s absolutely fine.

You’ll need to keep your passport and boarding pass with you (this is a little like your ticket to enter). So if you leave, just ensure you have those items with you, so you can be re-admitted to the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai once again.

I usually leave my husband in the lounge to settle with our things, and then do some shopping downstairs in the main departure lounge, and then come back up to the Emirates Business Class Lounge Dubai to relax until our flight leaves, once I’m finished shopping.
