Wings Transit Lounge Opens At Sleep Deprived Manila NAIA-3

Wings Transit Lounge - Sleep Capsule

Great news for sleepy travellers at Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport!  After years of being voted one of the world’s worst airports, things are finally improving for transit passengers at NAIA with the recent grand opening of the Wings Transit Lounge.  With showers, bunk beds, sleep capsules, a spa, baggage storage and lounge areas, NAIA now has services to make a transit or layover more tolerable (and sleepable).

This 402-square meter lounge is located in the 4th Level Mall Area of Terminal 3, before security. Simply designed, you might think of the lounge as an amped-up hostel. Rest-wise, you’ll find 5 lounge areas with 24 reclining chairs, 17 sleep capsules, 16 twin rooms, and one family room. They also have a massage room, showers, a simply-stocked pantry and dining area. And there is a small business centre.  The lounge is open 24 hours.

Entry into the lounge is open to passengers and non-passengers alike, and packages begin at P700 (approx. US$ 15.00). Shower access costs another P300, while a 1-hour massage will run you P675 (approx. US$ 14.75). And, should you be looking for a bed, a single capsule begins at P1000 (approx. US$ 21.25) for 5 hours – which includes one light meal and access to Wi-Fi.  The rates for the twin rooms start at P1800 (approx. US$38) for 5 hours.  Luggage Storage is available with rates from P250 (3 hours) – P350 (24 hours).

The Wings Transit Lounge is run by SM Kenko Spa, a member of the Jipang Group of Companies, a team of businesses that promises “World Class Japanese service within your reach”.

Our impression so far? It’s a relatively inexpensive alternative to camping out in what travellers have reported to be one of the less pleasant airport experiences. What do you think? Does this lounge breathe life and sleep-ability back into NAIA?

    This is very helpful especially for travelers who have a few hours of stay at the airport before their flight. The lounge might not be the best (I’ve read the reviews on Tripadvisor) but at least there’s a place to rest. Thank you!

      Yes, go to Wiki travel website on Manila airport for info on Terminal transfer. It isn’t easy, but can be done. Also tripadvisor.com has good reviews. Link to book online can be found there as well. I’ll let you Google That yourself.

    Hi, I’d like to stay on the 20th Febuary for one night, but I’m flying in and out of terminal 2- is it possible to come to terminal 3 overnight? Is there also a pre booking service for these? Thanks Rebecca

    I was able to enjoy the services the Wings offer in Sept while waiting for the rest of my party to arrive. On that day, it wasn’t busy so it wasn’t a long wait to get served. They have a room to store you luggage and give you a ticket which you return to pick you luggage when you leave. Instead of booking a room/capsule, I requested a lounge chair which was big enough for me and extremely comfortable. Their shower services were just what I needed after a long trip. They give you a bag that includes: towel, soap and toothpaste.

    How many storage units do you have and are they large enough for 2 pieces of standard size luggage.? Can they be reserved for a specific date ? Thanks. I will transit through the first week of Nov.

    Hello, Its a great relief to have resting/sleeping accommodations inside the airport. All the traffic and road repairs makes a transit traveler not wanting to go out of the airport and miss the connecting flight. Can I book in advance. Please post the number where I can reserve. It would be horrifying to find out there’s no vacancy. Thanks. Anzo
