Gulf Air's Falcon Gold Business Lounge: Bahrain International Airport

Located on the first floor of Bahrain International Airport is the Falcon Lounge. You'll definitely have the chance to experience it while traveling onboard Gulf Air. Reach a counter where a smiling hostess walks you to the lounge. A long and perfectly managed space is just the place if you're looking to spend some soothing and relaxing times at an airport.

The airport currently has three discrete lounges for premium passengers. Located on an upper level accessed by escalators from the departures area at Gate 15 and overlooking the main apron, the Gulf Air First and Business Class lounge offers an exclusive concept of waiter service, a separate family room and electronic video games room for children as well as full business facilities.
 
Follow the lit corridor then take a left to the main area of the lounge where a rich buffet with cold and hot items is prepared to serve you. To the right, another buffet, smaller than the first one, offers a couple of sandwiches as well as soft drinks.
 
I loved the space with its perfectly matching cool colors making this lounge a great getaway from the busy airport. Grey, blue and white under a low ceiling where sections are divide by curtains of steel balls.
