Glimpse of Mabuhay Lounge at NAIA 2

Traveling via airplane makes us excited because it only means that we are going to a far destination, out of the country or out of town. The only thing that is not fun in flying is the waiting game. We all know that we need 3 -4 hours before the flight, especially during the holidays.

It is long hours of waiting especially if you are just sitting at the boarding gate so it is really nice if you have an access to an airport lounge. I’ve experienced Mabuhay Lounge in Cebu International Airport when my husband booked a business class ticket because an economy ticket was no longer available.

It was a nice experience and it is something that my son cannot forget so after that trip, he wants to stay in the lounge if ever we are waiting in the airport. But I always tell him, we can’t because we only have an economy ticket. 

Anyway, since my husband is always out the country last year, he was able to earn miles. And because of these miles, he has now FREE access to Mabuhay LoungeLast week, he was in Cambodia and it was his first time to experience the Mabuhay Lounge in NAIA 2. 

I’m happy for him because I know he doesn’t enjoy waiting at the airport. In addition, I don’t need to prepare for his snacks too because there is free food and drinks in the lounge. Yey!

Who has Access to Mabuhay Lounge? 

You may relax in Mabuhay Miles Lounges if you are Mabuhay Miles Elite, Premier Elite and Million Miler. If you are not a member but you have a Business Class ticket you can access the lounge for FREE. 

Domestic Lounges

International Lounges

Checking all the photos, Mabuhay Lounge in NAIA 2 is much better than the Cebu station. It is bigger and more choices of food, may rice meal.

5 Ways to Get into Airport Lounges


  1. I also hate it when I need to wait long for a flight. I can be real patient and just enjoy the comforts of my book but then, what perhaps made he waiting a torture was the uncomfortable place.

    I havent been to Mabuhay Lounge. Honestly, I do not know how to earn that Mabuhay Miles. I used to travel a lot for business before, sadlly wasnt able to use that to my advantage. Anyway, going back to the Mabuhay Lounge. It seems very comfortable staying there with all the food and comfortable seats.

    1. You need to register to be a member and it is a FREE membership. I feel you, we're member of it for the longest time and it was only last year na ginamit ni hubby yung card. Waah! Sayang din yung ilang years na points.

  2. Yup! I hate waiting din pero meron pala mga tao na nageenjoy sa pag wait.. naamuse sila sa ginagawa ng mga tao! Pero love ko yang lounge na yan..free food! saya!

  3. oooh wow, would love to try Mabuhay lounge too, but mukhang matagal pa kami haha!

  4. The place looks really cozy. At hindi talaga crowded. PWedeng mag muni-muni dito, or mag trabaho ng payapa. hehe. Makakapasok kaya kami dito someday? That's the question I can't answer for now. lol.

    1. Ako din, when din kaya makapasok. Ang mahal naman ng business class ticket. hehehe!

  5. Wow, at first glance, I thought you were in some high end restaurant and bar! I've never stepped inside Mabuhay Lounge. Sana makapasok rin kami haha!
