3. Grab a bite in Flight Club, KLIA
Kuala Lumpur airport's Flight Club, found on the Mezzanine Level in KLIA, serves healthy drinks and meals in a charming café-like environment. Though they do have a buffet you can help yourself to, you can also order from their healthy a la carte selections for a lighter yet equally satisfying dining experience. Flight Club puts emphasis on herb and seed ingredients such as rosemary, oregano, chia seeds, and flaxseeds; on top of that, they serve Instagram-worthy plating that makes each dish look simply irresistible!
Fitness buffs will go crazy over their cold-pressed juices, salads, and pasta. But of course, you can still look forward to heavier options like roast chicken, fries, and beef. Flight Club’s cosy ambience also makes it appealing to travellers who are looking for a quiet place to kill some time or even catch up on some work.
4. Experience the Green Market, Terminal klia2
Health is wealth, and KLIA’s healthy dining options don’t stop at Flight Club. The Green Market in klia2 is your go-to restaurant for a mix of Japanese and Korean cuisine cooked with the freshest vegetables from Cameron Highlands, known for their vegetable farms, in Pahang, Malaysia. Whether you’re ordering from the breakfast or lunch menu, the salads, noodles, bibimbap, and rotisserie chicken are sure to be served with a hefty dose of high-quality greens and nutrient juices!
To make these juices, the chefs in Green Market practice slowly pressing the fresh fruits so as to minimise oxidation. Try the different fruit blends to your heart’s content — from cucumber, celery, lemon, apple, carrot, to beetroot — you’ll be surprised how many fruits can be mixed in one refreshing drink. You can even watch the chefs at work in the restaurant’s open kitchen!
5. Unwind in TheBAR, Terminal klia2
Keep it fancy and try more of KLIA’s world-class beverages in klia2’s TheBAR at level 3, International Departures near gates P & Q. You have three main stations at your disposal: the Juice Bar, Wine & Beer Bar, and Tapas Bar! TheBAR has its fair share of in-demand alcoholic drinks like Heineken, Pina Colada, Bacardi, Smirnoff, Jack Daniel, so on and so forth!
If you’d rather stick with healthier alternatives, you can mix and match freshly squeezed fruits like green apple, guava, and orange, or you can go for their Earl Grey, Natural Green, and English Breakfast tea. Don’t you worry, they have comfort food to pair with your drink of choice such as chicken, potatoes, salads, and hotdog sandwiches!
6. Shop in gateway@klia2
It’s hard to believe that a holistic mall can be found inside an airport, but Malaysia makes it happen with gateway@klia2. Whether you’re truly shopping or just window shopping, walking around this huge mall is one satisfying experience. A collection of premium brands and sartorial trends is waiting to be discovered. Then do a beauty addict’s ritual of checking any new skincare and makeup products worth the splurge. There’s even a section for gadgets, optics, lounges, and a traveller’s best friend — currency exchange!
7. Soothe your aching muscles in the spa
When you have a long flight ahead, a trip to the spa should also be at the top of your to-do list in Kuala Lumpur airport.
Head to KLIA’s Wellness Spas and remove all that tension from body! They have one branch in KLIA and another in klia2, both accessible to passengers departing on international flights. These spas offer a range of therapeutic services like massage treatments, reflexology, and nail care.
You can even hop in a private shower and resting suite after your pampering session. There’s no harm in spoiling yourself right before a flight; besides, it’s hard to be this relaxed on your journey in the air. So collect all the zen you can as you sprawl on that massage bed and meditate in the spa’s lounge bay. After all, tranquillity and restfulness are one of Kuala Lumpur airport’s speciality!
