The SUMAQ VIP Lounge at Jorge Chavez Lima International Airport is located past security near gate 18. Access is granted via invitation passes from your airline if you are Star Alliance Gold, Oneworld Sapphire or Oneworld Emerald on your respective carrier. Priority Pass is also accepted at the SUMAQ Lounge.
The SUMAQ Lounge was very crowded as there are only two lounges at Lima Airport. The other lounge is called the VIP Club.
The internet wifi speeds were ridiculously slow as a snail and sometimes timing out on a consistent basis. There were various hotspots called SUMAQ1, SUMAQ2, SUMAQ3 all with the same password, “lima2013”. Let’s just say my 14.4k baud modem back in the 90’s is faster than the internet at the SUMAQ Lounge.
There is an open bar where you can get your last taste of the famous Peruvian cocktail, the Pisco Sour.
There is an outdoor smoking section attached to the lounge as well. I decided to go outside to sip my Pisco Sour and try and see if the wifi worked better in that location. The wifi speed was just as painfully slow.
The food spread was lousy as there were no hot selection to choose from. There were cookies and cakes in addition to hot and cold beverages. Inca Kola and Diet Inca Kola was available in the fridge.
The best thing about this lounge is the orange juice machine where you manually throw in three oranges on top of the machine and let it go to work for you.
There were lounge dragons everywhere and they didn’t want people to take pictures, so I did my best to provide you with a close up picture from the Club VIP Lounge (in the next installment of this trip report).
