Superb room hardware and the game viewing was as private and wild as you could possibly hope for. For the majority of our time on the game drives, it felt like we were at one with nature, totally disconnected from other human beings and the outside world.
At NRT we were able to use the superb JAL Business Class lounge. Having previously spent time in the ANA First Class lounge, I can unequivocally state that the JAL lounge utterly destroys it.
From the moment you see the Gold lettering on the grey slate wall, the JAL lounge's elegance is readily apparent.
We stopped into the lounge to have a quick look around. Whilst the lounge is nicely decorated and has a cost feel, it is not in the same league as the JL offering. Which makes sense, given that NRT is JAL's home base.
I was pleasantly surprised by the business class lounge. This space doesn't feel like second-best, an afterthought, it is a great lounge and a place where you could easily relax for a couple of hours before a flight: eating, drinking and enjoying the views.
The Arrival is unique in the fact that it is open so late, having the option to arrive, get showered and then head straight into town for a night out, is amazing.
This isn't a lounge where you would want or need to spend a huge amount of time but it is well appointed and has everything you need. It is a great place to quickly and easily arrive refreshed and ready to head into Hong Kong.
