This makes us v. v. happy.

This week, Melbourne airport opened a brand-spanking-new luxury lounge. Called Marhaba, the space features 200 seats, shower facilities and a buffet with a selection of food from around the world and some of our country’s finest wines.

Sounds like heaven before or after a flight, right?

If you're like us, you're probably thinking, 'cool, but what's the membership fee / amount of travel I need to have done / celebrity I need to know to get in'?

You'll be thrilled to know the answer is none. There's no membership fee. There's no loyalty program you need to belong to. And there's no D-lister you need to claim you're besties with to get in. The lounge is a pay-as-you-go affair, setting adults back $65 and kids aged 12 and under $35 for a four-hour visit.

The lounge is open seven days a week from 6am 'til midnight. You can book ahead by this site or rock up on the day and pay for access.
