"this is a pleasant refuge"

(United States)

Trip Verified | The Sky Pearl lounge in Guangzhou is adequately large, with many comfortable seating options, a broad choice of hot and cold food options, and a fine view of the tarmac. Nevertheless, there are two areas in which the lounge should improve: the air conditioning is not adequate and the beverage choices are surprisingly meager. There were red and white wines, two kinds of whiskey, and nothing else in the alcohol menu. Perhaps this reflects Chinese tastes and custom. I think that the problem with the temperature in the upstairs section of the lounge is a trade off with the view offered. Large glass widows allow patrons to see out, but they also permit the sun to pour in. There are no loudspeaker boarding announcements, but the staff circulates constantly, and personally informs customers when it is time to head to the gate. In sum, this is a pleasant refuge, but it could be even better.

"always full to the brim"

(Kenya)

Trip Verified | The lounge for domestic flights are nothing to write about, they are so noisy, always full to the brim and hardly any refreshments, in the morning when the refreshments arrive, there is a mad dash for the same, Totally useless compared to the international lounges, those are perfect and fit in with the international standards

"food and beverages are very poor"

(Australia)

Unverified | My wife and I have now spent four visits in the Guangzhou Airport lounge over 4 years. Nothing has really changed in that time unlike the in flight service that has improved in leaps and bounds. In flight service is now excellent and it is time to apply themselves to this lounge which is darkly lit, although clean - while food and beverages are very poor in terms of quality and quantity. WiFi is very low quality in terms of consistent coverage, it frequently drops out, and is very slow. China Southern has come a very long way since our first experience 4 years ago but not in the lounge.

"much below our expectations"

(Russian Federation)

Verified Review | The overall impression is that this Guangzhou lounge is much below our expectations. It is out-of date, food selection is very limited, there is only one red wine. Staff is not friendly - they first sent us to another area for elite passenger without food/ drinks instead of business/first area. Two weeks before on our way to Sydney my time slot for shower was given to someone else and I had to wait for another hour.

"One of the worst lounges"

(Germany)

Verified Review | One of the worst lounges that I have seen. It was overcrowded to the point that it was very difficult to find a seat. The food was rather underwhelming, and the internet connection was very slow. Furthermore, the lounge was very noisy because they announced every flight in English and Chinese.

"very spacious and comfortable "

(Australia)

Verified Review | The lounge is very spacious and comfortable with two floors. The food is plenty with variety and special southern China flavor. The only inconvenience is there is no lift to the second floor, so I had to carry my luggage to the second floor. There is a book shelf with many books and magazines.

"a good variety of meals"

(Australia)

Verified Review | The lounge had good wifi connection. The seating was well arranged with an area for sitting to eat a meal as well as comfortable lounge chairs to relax. Flight screens with up to date departure information were visible from most parts of the lounge. There was a good variety of meals, snacks and finger food available. There was a good supply of beer, wine, soft drinks, coffee/tea and other beverages. Staff would announce when flights were boarding and reminding customers to head to their appropriate gate. The lounge was kept in a clean manner both in the lounge as well as the restrooms.

"did not find any fresh fruit"

(Australia)

Verified Review | In general this China Southern Airlines lounge is okay. No private wifi, have to share wifi with the public. Food and drinks are reasonable, not exceptional, just a bit better than ok. However, I did not find any fresh fruit. No monitor showing boarding time, very inconvenient. Open area no private air con, sometimes the temp is not right, too hot or too cold

"not much variety of wine and alcohol"

(Australia)

Verified Review | The lounge is on 2 levels with main eating downstairs and more limited offerings upstairs. The food for evening meal was Chinese style but westerners may find something of their liking. There is not much variety of wine and alcohol but juice, soft drink and tea/coffee. Showers are available but you need to book at lounge reception. The lounge is reasonably comfortable and there is a free massage chair. There was one newspaper printed in English.

"a good selection of food"

(Australia)

This excellent lounge is easy to find and well located near the international departures gates. It has a good selection of food, both Chinese and Continental, and a cook ready to prepare your noodle soup to order. Well supplied with a selection of drinks. Being in China, it has a number of high quality Asian teas provided together with cute little tea cups. It is on two levels which both have food and drinks bar. The upper level also has showers and bedrooms with beds so that you can have some sleep during a long wait. Seating is comfortable and there are even massage chairs on upper level. The lounge is on the level of departure gates, no need to struggle up the stairs to it. A short walk will take you to your departure gates.
