THE WISDOM Lounge @ Suvarnabhumi is at Concourse A, 3rd Floor, Suvarnabhumi Airport.

The guilloche ornamentation — a symbol of wealth and wisdom — is also utilized in the decor, and the lounge is divided into the following three major zones:

Lobby Area — for customer reception
Personal Pod — for customers to access internet services or for private business meetings

Relaxing Area — for reading and relaxation, where specially-prepared food and beverages are served. This area also houses products from Phufa Shop and showcases special-edition products from KBank’s business allies.

“This lounge is not only a rest area during transit, but it also reflects the strengths of our ‘THE WISDOM’ and ‘KASIKORNBANK’ brands that offer ‘step-ahead’ services on the international level,” added Mr. Banthoon.
