Following Los Angeles, Paris and Buenos Aires lounges, it is designed to be an alliance lounge rather than belonging to a specific airline.
Star Alliance hired local designers who were tasked with creating a sleek, modern atmosphere using only Brazilian materials. According to Star Alliance that meant "a very Brazilian look and feel, reflecting the strong artesian heritage of the country,"
"The use of wood, rope, natural fibres and typical ceramic finishing bring cosiness to a sophisticated interior and provides a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere to customers."
The 1350 square metre space has various seating areas divided into a variety of different sections including four shower suites, free wi-fi with wireless printing.
Now the catch; it is only open to guests flying first or business class or holders of a Star Alliance Gold card.
