Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) Free Shower Facility at Terminal 1

Tucked away on Level 4 is perhaps KLIA’s best secret with a free shower facility in a nondescript toilet cubicle in a public toilet in the public area. This shower is completely free of charge and while it’s located near the airline offices, anyone including passengers may use the free shower facility.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Terminal 1 Level 4 is accessed from the Arrival Hall at Level 3.

Head up the escalator around the middle of the terminal.

Continue on straight where the sign points to “Airline Offices”.

The corridor looks like it’s in the back-of-house, but this is not a restricted area. Continue straight and turn left.

KLIA T1 Shower Room (Public Area)

There is a set of public toilets to the left of the corridor, along with a water refilling station. Head inside.

Towards the end of the row of cubicles is the elusive shower facility, which is not actively promoted.

A small icon on the door marks that it’s a shower cubicle.

The shower cubicle was compact and clean. Only cold water is available here, but it’s still perfect since it’s free.

Behind the shower cubicle door, there is a hanger provided along with a hook. This is useful if you are travelling with 1 cabin bag only.

The shower had good water pressure. While the water is cold, I got used to it after the first 2 minutes or so. Bring your own towel and toiletries.

There is also a tap for washing of feet.

Conclusion

This free shower facility is one of the best offerings that Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) has, especially for an early-morning arrival or after a long day in KL. Perhaps more such shower cubicles can be offered to create a proper shower room, and then market the facility, with the hopes of climbing the Skytrax ladder again. This will differentiate KLIA with other airports in the world for better passenger services, since not many airports in the world offer showers free of charge.
