The lounge was a two minute walk from the Avianca Sala VIP. It was located opposite gates 34/35 and on the third level. I took the elevator up, much like I had at the previous lounge.
I made a left from the elevator and entered the lounge. There was a nice seating area overlooking parking and a runway straight ahead. The area could have used some service because plate and cups were everywhere.The was an internet cafe just behind the seats.
The front desk was back towards the elevator. I presented my digital Priority Pass card and boarding pass. The agent welcomed me to the lounge. She also informed that there would not be announcement for my flight since it was on Avianca, fair enough. I stored my bags next to front desk and began to explore.
LATAM had the same open air concept as Avianca. While I do love being in open air rooms, the humidity inside of the airport was unbearable. This lounge did not have showers so I needed to find somewhere to cool down quickly.
The main seating area consisted of a few different types of chairs. This gave the small area more personality.
Directly across from the entrance to the main seating area was arrival/departure boards and a literature station.
To left of the main seating area was the buffet area. There was a great selection of food, wines, and spirits. LATAM’s buffet was significantly better than Avianca’s and there were way less people in the lounge. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
The buffet area had some family and private dining options available. I appreciated the quietness in the dining area. It definitely reduced my stress.
At the very back of this area were some lounge chairs. I appreciated being able to grab a drink and relax away from the small crowd. The chairs look uncomfortable but were the opposite.
Outside of this back seating area was the business center. It consisted of a large conference and a 3-in-1 printer. The guy was working hard but maintained the low noise level as other guests.
LATAM’s VIP Lounge was very peaceful. The amazing buffet and peacefulness within the lounge were things I had not experienced together. I appreciated that the agents at the front desk stored my bag while I enjoyed the lounge. The small gesture went a long way. The Priority Pass lounges in Bogota were 2 for 2 at this point.
