Because we’re based out of Hawaii, the airport lounge that we most often frequent is the Plumeria Lounge in the Honolulu Airport (or the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport). We love it because it’s based in the interisland terminal and feels like an oasis from the crowds of travelers.
If you have a Priority Pass, this is one of two lounges you can access in HNL (but this is our favorite). You can also purchase access for $40 per person – which could be worth it if you have a long layover.
Getting to the Plumeria Lounge
The hours for the lounge are good for most flights except for the early and really late ones. To enter the lounge with the Priority Pass, you will need a boarding pass and it has to be for a flight you will be taking, not one you just took. To get there from the interisland terminal, look for signs for the Plumeria Lounge. It’s near the security checkpoint and bathrooms and up an escalator. It’s right near the Wiki Wiki shuttle, so following signs for the shuttle should help too.
Food and Beverage Offerings
The airport lounge offerings are basic with a Hawaiian flair. They have the standard juice, coffee, tea, beer, wine and snacks but there are a few fun twists. The beer is from Maui Brewing Company – and is called Bikini Blonde. They have passion orange juice which is delicious. One of their sandwiches is served on a taro bun, there’s instant ramen and the dressing for the veggies is papaya seed dressing.
