Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa Reveals Magnificent New Wedding Venues

Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa unveils beautiful new wedding venues designed with French elegance and modern luxuries.

Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa has undergone rebranding and major refurbishments in the past year, to unveil the newest wedding venues and solemnisation spaces on the idyllic isle of Sentosa. The 5-star luxury hotel has been rejuvenated with Sofitel’s distinctive French flair through a bold and elegant style inspired by the iconic Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. Designed to blend Parisienne gardens with lush local flora, the new, artful décor breathes fresh life into Sentosa’s first resort. Floral motifs, coloured marble, and contemporary furnishings all combine to bring Sofitel’s “art de vivre” experience to the resort. The lobby welcomes you with a stunning bespoke light installation and bold pink hues, into an idyllic resort blooming with French luxury and tropical elegance.

Newly completed in 2015, Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa’s ballrooms were unveiled at their Love is Magnifique wedding show last year. The Straits Ballroom has always been popular for its long march-in aisle, and its beautiful views of the South China Sea through the full-length glass windows inspired by French doors. Flooded with natural light and newly carpeted in colourful, contemporary hues, the ballroom comfortably seats 250 guests in a round table setting. The pillarless Straits Ballroom has a dedicated reception in the Straits Veranda, open to an expansive view of the ocean and Spice Island Point just below, a popular outdoor solemnisation venue with a stunning backdrop of the South China Sea and a romantic garden setting.

The Saffron Ballroom’s signature wood-panelled mirrors and rich parquet flooring give the pillarless ballroom a beautiful colonial ambience. The new refurbishments add a touch of modern elegance with state-of-the-art fibre optic lighting that can be calibrated to look like a sky full of stars. Accommodating 140 guests in a round table setting, the Saffron Ballroom has a private foyer for your cocktail reception, with ample space for a dessert table set-up by the culinary team at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa.

To pamper their brides, Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa has specially created a gorgeous Bridal Suite right next to the ballrooms. The enviable new space is incredibly spacious, and beautifully decorated, perfect for a bride and her bridesmaids to get ready for the most important day of her life. A dress form ensures gowns don’t crease, and a changing area and a full-length, three-panelled mirror allows a bride to see herself from every angle in privacy, while her wedding helpers lounge on the sofa and chairs in the suite, or get ready with the other full-length mirror. With pom-pom chandeliers and bright lighting, a bride can serenely get her hair and makeup done at the exquisite dressing table, and make her grand entrance just a few steps away.

For couples who prefer a more intimate wedding, the new Villas du Jardin offer a private and luxurious space for an outdoor poolside solemnisation. With a romantic garden trellis and a private pool, the villas each accommodate up to 30 guests, who will appreciate the sophisticated new décor details such as the French-hat-box-inspired bar, the plush furnishings, or the pampering Hermès amenities. Each villa offers two bedrooms with spacious designer en-suite bathrooms, and a massage-jet whirlpool in the master en-suite, for couples to enjoy a pampering honeymoon stay.

Another new intimate wedding venue is the elegant ilLido at the Cliff. Perched high on Sentosa, the sophisticated restaurant offers beautiful views of the South China Sea, and a breezy alfresco terrace perfect for a sheltered solemnisation amidst lush greenery. With bold turquoise hues accented by warm bronze and mahogany, the restaurant seats 196 guests in style. Showcasing a menu that blends the culinary offerings of two iconic gourmet restaurants, ilLido at the Cliff will impress your guests with Italian classics made from the finest seasonal ingredients.
