Overall I was a little disappointed in EVA Air’s “The Infinity” Lounge in the Taipei Taoyuan Airport (TPE). Especially given that this is EVA Air’s largest hub. The decor resembled something out of a Tron movie, there was no seating and the food was not very appealing. If you have a choice, try one of EVA Air’s other lounges, or even the Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge which is usually less crowded.

 

Location of EVA Air Infinity Lounge

EVA Air has four lounges at the Taipei Taoyuan Airport (TPE) – The Club, The Garden, The Star and The Infinity. I have lounge reviews of both The Star and The Infinity but not the others yet. They are located one level above the main concourse in Terminal 2. After passing security and immigration take the escalators up one level. Lounge Direction Sign at Taipei Airport

At the top of the escalator, the Club is straight ahead, while the three other EVA Air lounges are to the left, and the Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge is to the right. EVA Air The Club LoungeEVA Air Lounge Map at Taipei Airport

 

Access to EVA Air Lounges at Taipei Airport (TPE)

Access depends on what type of ticket you have and if you have elite status with EVA Air, or another Star Alliance partner.

    • The Club – EVA Air silver members
    • The Garden – Eva Air Diamond members
    • The Star – Star Alliance Gold members (or business class passengers)
    • The Infinity – business class passengers only

You can actually do a pretty cool walk-through tour of the lounges on their website.

 

Entrance

The entrance was very elegant (a theme that did not continue). To the right is “The Infinity” and to the left is “The Star”.EVA LoungeEntrance

Also at the entrance was a funny looking robot. I think it was supposed to go along with the “Infinity” theme. EVA Air The Infinity Lounge Robot

 

Decor

The decor of the lounge is very.. unique. While I appreciate the futuristic theme, it didn’t feel quite as luxurious or relaxing as some of the more refined lounges (Cathay Pacific’s “The Pier” in Hong Kong, Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge in Singapore). I’ll let you be the judge. EVA Air The Infinity Lounge DecorEVA Air The Infinity Lounge SeatingEVA Air The Infinity Lounge SeatingEVA Air The Infinity Lounge Decor

I will say that the lounge was pretty crowded, similar to what other travelers have noted. I have heard that the Singapore Airlines lounge across the way is much less crowded. Unfortunately it was closed when I was there though.

EVA Air Lounge Food and Beverages

The main buffet area was at the end of the lounge and served up predominantly Taiwanese cuisine. Nothing looked particularly appetizing though. EVA Air The Infinity Lounge FoodEVA Air The Infinity Lounge FoodEVA Air The Infinity Lounge FoodEVA Air The Infinity Lounge FoodEVA Air The Infinity Lounge FoodEVA Air The Infinity Lounge Desserts

The food was essentially the same as “The Star”, except “The Infinity” offered Haagen-Dazs ice cream while “The Star” had Movenpick.EVA Air The Infinity Lounge Ice Cream

Showers and Restrooms

There were four showers with various names and themes. Unfortunately they were all occupied so I didn’t have a chance to check them out.

Extras

The wifi worked without any issues while I was there.

There was a small business center if you want to get some work done. EVA Air The Infinity Lounge Business Center

Lounge Review Conclusion

Overall I must say I was a little disappointed with EVA Air’s “The Infinity” Business Class Lounge in the Taipei Taoyuan Airport (TPE airport). The decor resembled something out of a Tron movie and the food was not very appealing. The lounge was very crowded and showers were fully occupied while I was there. If you have access to both, I would say choose “The Star”. As noted in my previous lounge review of “The Star”, it was less crowded and more relaxing, and the food was nearly identical. They are both together so it wouldn’t be hard to visit both as I did during my layover in the Taipei Airport (TPE Airport). Unfortunately I did not get to check out EVA Air’s The Garden Lounge for Diamond members, or the Singapore Airlines SilverKris lounge, but I would imagine they are better than “The Infinity” as well.
