  • Sleep like a baby. If all that shopping and eating has you worn out or if you’re simply fighting a bad case of jet lag, you can go ahead and catch those 40 winks. Refresh with a nap and a shower at No. 1 Traveller Lounge & Spa located after security in Terminal 3. If you need a bed overnight, try the Yotel cabin hotel located in Terminal 4 before security. The next-generation cabins have everything you need from an en suite bathroom to free internet access.
  • Relax and be pampered. In addition to a place to sleep, No. 1 Traveller Lounge & Spa also offers a selection of spa treatments and massage. You can also visit Be Relax or Be Relax Classic for beauty and well-being treatments including aroma and oxygen therapy.

With amenities like these, you might want to schedule an extra-long layover.
