Both the MH and CX lounges at the satellite building are dire. The MH First class lounge is marginally better but I find the food offering abysmal.

Yes, MH has really slipped, First and Business lounges in the satellite are rubbish, I hear the CX lounge (if open at the time you're there) is slightly better. If you're going from the main building, the MH Regional is actually not too bad.

People must have this flipped around. The MH regional lounge is utterly terrible and the satellite not too bad. The satellite has ample more space, better bathrooms and better food selection than the regional which is a dive. Just look at the bathrooms and you will see why. Cant comment on the CX lounge but either way your options are limited at KUL.

You'll find that the MH F lounge in the satellite building is usually empty, so if you're looking for a space to relax, then that would be your best bet. This also means that there are several people serving you at any time so it's quite attentive. They also have a small dining room where they offer a-la-carte dining, but as mentioned, the food is nothing amazing - can't compare to the QF or CX flagship F lounges in SYD/MEL and HKG.

I agree with all the above, but for the benefit of the OP:

As a frequent One World Emerald KUL user I can confirm that there is not
one decent lounge for One World members. In fact, there is nothing
about KLIA 1 that I can say anything good about and do not want
to really say what I think about KLIA II for fear of being banned from
Flying KUL to SIN is a half day trek
and is marginally faster than CBD to CBD bus or driving. A colleague
drives in 5 hours (with light traffic at JB crossing) - Google maps is
quoting a time of 4 hours this morning. It takes 1 hour from KLCC to KUL
if the traffic is OK, 90 minutes prior to departure check in, 1 hour
flight, 30 mins to get bags and into a taxi, 30 mins to Singapore CBD =
4.5 hours. The reverse trip via KLIA II on a busy day with long queues
for immigration, baggage screening (on arrival), booking a taxi ticket,
walking for miles etc = easily a 6 hour journey. The fast train from SIN
to KLCC will wipe out the airlines on this route - 90 minutes, easy,
more comfortable than sardine tin airline travel, competitive pricing -
but the next train departs (maybe) in 10 .... years.
