The Executive Airport Lounge - we couldn't find any way to pre-book the lounge. We arrived at the airport, checked in our cases, through border control, and followed the signs for the airport lounge. Up the escalator, turn right, and then left and it is on your left hand side. It cost us 15 USD which was approx £11 each.... More

For $15, this was fine. There were couches to rest on; there were only 15 or so people there, so we stretched out and napped without inconveniencing anyone. The wifi wasn't awesome but was the best we had on the island, so there's that. I enjoyed my nap; it was well worth the $15.

The only positive I found was that it's quiet. For 15 USD it's a little steep for what you get. Terrible wifi that disconnects regularly, packed (we thought there was more seating around the corner, we were wrong) and food that has been sitting there for a little too long to be appealing!

I generally don't review bad service, I like to be fair and give everyone a good chance. What happened to me today was so shocking, I feel it's fair I make people aware so they don't miss their flight or waste their money. I arrived at the Executive Lounge and gave my boarding pass and passport. They kept it and... More

I used this lounge as I couldn't access the others with my particular FF airline. It is cheap ($USD15). It was quiet, for a 1am flight I was literally the only customer for over an hour. You get a very basic, very average meal included with access. It was food court standard. The Wifi was so slow as to be... More

Good place to unwind before flight. Major plus is a shower room. Television shows English movies dubbed in Tamil. Food and drinks - Good range of alcoholic beverages (red and black label in whiskey, Bacardi, Japanese sake, French wines), average food. Cracker biscuits were stale; which when brought to the notice of caretaker, were promptly removed, veg lasagna was good,... More

It located near all depart gates and $ 15 per person including mini-meals, snacks and soft drinks & wifi. But when asked mini meals they served after an hour delay. Some guests left without having food. :( worst ever! Wifi is good and can relax with snacks (only biscuits)

On our departure from Sri Lanka we were looking for a lounge where we can chill before the flight and we found that the Executive Lounge was the only one where we can pay for few hours therefore the only option available to us. I found the lounge very unwelcoming, music too loud, lights way to bright and the food/drinks... More

Overall the lounge isn't that big but it does solve the purpose.The food and wine spread was pretty decent. WIFI speed was good as well.
