It’s one of the few airline lounges in the world with its own private security check, and once you’re in, the Turkish Airlines Lounge at Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport more than fulfills a passenger’s every whimsy. Awarded the “Best Business Class Lounge in the World” in 2015, some of the first things that hit you as you enter the 6,000 sq m mini “city” within the busy airport are the large, multi-level expanses, a library with a stately billiards table, a cinema hall, and downstairs, even a simulated golf course. If you just want to put your feet up and get a massage, you can book one gratis (you may have to wait a bit). But the best part is the array of Turkish delicacies you can just pick and choose: kebaps, köfte (much like our Indian koftas or meatballs), pide (Turkish pizza), pasta, noodles, pastries, baklavas, a variety of olives, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages.
