What does the best airport lounges in the world consist of? A gourmet dining experience, own bedroom, spa, and freebies? Yes. Sometimes the airport offers more tantalizing treats that make you want to say, you'll never leave. And this year, the Global Airport Lounge of the Year Awards 2016 of Priority Pass has been revealed.

The world's best airport lounge has been crowned to the Plaza Premium Lounge at London Heathrow. Its interiors have been conceived by Hong Kong designer Kinney Chan of KCA Associates.

In a press release by Priority Pass, Shereen Lee, Operations Manager at Plaza Premium, London Heathrow, quoted, "Plaza Premium Lounge London Heathrow is honoured to be recognised as Global Winner in the Priority Pass Lounge of the Year Awards and also as winner in the Best Quality of Refreshments category," Lee started. "Such recognitions reaffirm Plaza Premium Group's mission to create exceptional travel experiences and this win reflects our commitment to deliver consistently high levels of service," she continued.

The lounge offers visitors their own bedroom suites, shower rooms, a Wellness Spa, and a Champagne and Tapas Bar.

Finland takes homes with Almost@Home at Helsinki-Vantaa as Highly Commended by the awards committee. According to the lounge, Almost@home is a lounge similarly designed with the convenience of a home where people can "slip off your shoes, put on some woolen socks and flop onto the sofa."

 Winners of the African and Middle Eastern Awards go to Petra Lounge at Amman Queen Alia International as the total winner of the category with Shongololo Lounge at Johannesburg O.R. Tambo International as the Highly Commended airport lounge in the set.

Asia Pacific has Asiana Lounge at Seoul-Incheon as their grand champion, while North America's The Club at San Jose CA Mineta International got the spot in their category. Latin America and The Caribbean saw the rise of VIP Lounge (East) at Guadalajara Miguel Hidalgo International as the winner.

Lounges that cater to business facilities have been awarded as well with Preludium at Warsaw Frederic Chopin emerging as the champ. For Best Quality of Refreshments, another round goes to Plaza Premium Lounge at London Heathrow. The friendliest personnel of Alaska Lounge at Seattle WA - SeaTac won Best Attitude and Service from Lounge Staff.
