(3rd from right) officiated the grand opening ceremony of Plaza Premium Lounge in Taipei together with other honourable guests.
“Plaza Premium Lounge in Taipei is the first project of our Group in Taiwan.” said Mr. Song Hoi-see, Founder and CEO of Plaza Premium Group at the grand opening ceremony today. “We have invested a lot in Taipei by introducing four cutting-edge Plaza Premium Lounges to facilitate travellers departing from, transiting through and arriving at Taipei. We aim at strengthening the affinity of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (Taoyuan Airport) to travellers and making it a preferred transit hub in East Asia.”
Located at the Departures in Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 of Taoyuan Airport, the new Plaza Premium Lounges span over 2,500 square metres with comfortable seating of about 600, in which the company also sponsored two Travellers Experience Zones in both terminals to let travellers explore and experience various lounge facilities.Aiming to provide a tranquil and relaxing environment, Plaza Premium Lounge’s designer has selected “trees and timber” as the theme of the lounge, combining contemporary city element with a touch of local flavour. Guests can see different artistic timber structure as a resemblance of vitality and prosperity of Taiwan. Such installations turn into a series of quality fabrics and decorations across various zones throughout the lounges, representing the idea of evolution being an ever-changing process. To reinforce the rich artistic culture of the city, the designer especially created a hollow shape of Taiwan island on a carved wood embedded in the front wall of Plaza Premium Lounge in Terminal 1, whereas the iconic Taipei 101 and the skyline of Xinyi district was captured onto an over three-metre bas-relief, displaying prominently at the reception of Plaza Premium Lounge in Terminal 2.
