Aeon Lounge at Central World
At Central World, Aeon branch is located at 4th floor, where other major banks also have their branches.
Ok, let’s get inside the lounge space. Staff actually asked my passport only needed to present credit card. It might not be needed but I recommend all to bring for verification purpose. Staff seems checking my passport number in their system.
*I came here many times and never asked to show credit card. They seem to check from my passport number only and ID card number for Thai people.
From May 2023, entrance policy was changed a bit. Customer required to scan QR code at bank entrance then get queue number for counter then show ID when called.
Even new system installed, almost nobody are using this…
Select AEON lounge first.
Then input phone number.
Got queue number for counter process.
Wait for queue number called.
Open the door recognizing your face on touch screen. Actually staff will open the door by manual.
Entire lounge space with luxurious atmosphere, offering enough seating space around 15 seats inside.
4 counter chair was newly installed to accommodate more guests from Dec 2022.
There is one staff in the counter bar, you can ask drinks and snacks to offer. Coffee can be refilled.
Once I am seated, Staff approached and offered drink and snack. Snack menu is changing weekly. this time small hotdog is available so I ordered. Snacks will be out of stock around 4 pm even on weekday. You must come early to get one unless otherwise you will get only drinks.
Food delivered as packaged for hygiene purpose.
Small sized but nice tested hotdog with condiment.
Charging outlet is equipped with each table. While taking some rest during your shopping time, do not forget to charge the phones.
Sofa seat is also clean and good to be seated. Again this lounge service is completely free for card holders, that is really nice, you cannot miss to utilize.
Ok! That’s all the interior and service of Aeon Lounge at Central World. I could charge my phone, enjoy hot black coffee before going to watch football game on the day. If you are coming often here, I highly advise you to have one Aeon credit card so that you can enjoy lounge service 4 times per month same as me!
