    Hi, I had just emailed to check the package and the coordinator that replied me is also Ziya. Mind to share about her service? Was thinking of Regent for my wedding for the coming year and might be meeting her soon.

    Hi, she was not my original co ordinator, my original one transfered to another department so she took over. So far nothing negative, she's very friendly and prompt in replying e mails and calls. She also managed to get all our requests done.

    Hi, I'm in a mid of choosing the menu for my food tasting. Any graduate brides can give me a review on the food you have chosen for your AD?
    I'm having wedding lunch. So the menu might be different from the wedding dinner. TIA:)

    Hi ladies, I am thinking of holding a small wedding in Regent. I know they just held a wedding showcase but I missed it. Do you think I can still negotiate for perks? If so what sort of extra perks do they provide typically in wedding fair? Did you like the hotel entrance, general waiting area and the ballroom? Does it look dated or fresh?

    Have cancelled my package with regent already but if somebody wants to takeover there is a foc discount from me due to the 9k deposit.

    So here is the package details regarding pricing:

    Original price per table: 1429++ = 1682 nett.

    Package now going for a min spend of 36,000 nett - 25 tables
    => each table cost becomes 1440 nett

    Savings of $242 per table. Total 6k discount

    Interested pls let me know thanks

    Hi Ladies, just to share my wedding experience at Regent.

    Coordinator Ang Ziya - before package was signed, she was prompt and helpful. After 1st deposit paid, you have to prompt her to take action. She was MIA on AD briefing cos she was 'busy elsewhere'. No courtesy to even check with the couple even after the wedding ended.

    Florist - Not keen to respond even when you mention you want to do an upgrade of deco

    Solemnisation room - Sound system screw up

    Wedding dinner - Food below average and served cold. Service was bad. Waiters were just so bad and clearly not trained.
    Had spillage on few guests. Uneven serving of food. Waiter just pour the soup out from 1 of the bowls to balance out with other portions. They were also rushing guests to finish up even thou they can clearly see you are still eating. They even miss out to serve guests at the bridal table.
    The banquet managers do take care of you during the dinner. But when dinner has ended, we were not even served our dinner that was put aside.

    Concierge - couldnt get the room key to work because concierge has check out the suite and extra room, even when the wedding was still going on.

    Overall very bad experience with the hotel.

    Hi, I’m a newly graduate bride. Had our wedding banquet at The Regent early November.

    Our coordinator, Willius, was very attentive and accommodating with our wedding arrangements.

    Banquet captain was also experienced with the arrangements on the actual day.

    Our guests had given very positive feedback on the food that was served.

    Great hospitality received from the staffs.

    Overall, we highly recommend couples to consider hosting their wedding at The Regent.

    Hi! Wow.. was it really that bad? I'm seriously considering Regent for my banquet in 2017 and my coordinator is ziya too. So far, among all the hotels we've visited, she seemed to be the only 1 with the best service and will call us up to follow up etc. I'm kinda worried and in a dilemma now

    Hi dear cynplified,

    Yes i agree willius is super customer oriented and attentive. Im served by him at this initial stage and out of several site visits, yes he gave me the most impressive service ever with a great personal touch! End day even i did not choose regent, definately will compliment him to his coy that this man is a real GEM

    Hi,

    I'm interested in the Nassim Room and going to see the site this Sat.

    Could anyone who has recently held their wedding there (2015-16) give some feedback on the food and service? Anyone who went to their wedding show on 19 Feb can share what perks were given as well?

    Thank you!

    Hello ladies

    Anybody would like to share feedback about your coordinators? We are looking at signing up with Regent for dinner banquet for late 2018.

    Thank you!!

    My coordinator is Willius Koh, response is slow, does not touch base or follow up with you even when nearing to wedding date.... i am only 3 weeks away to my wedding but emails were not replied after 3 days, whatsapp no reply. I am the one asking questions to find out what do they need to know from me...... maybe bcuz i am only having a small wedding lunch? This was a vast difference i heard from my friends who had weddings at other hotels where their coordinator actively contact the wedding couple 1 month before and make sure the wedding reception goes well.

    If your wedding is being held at the later part of the year, suggest that you select and make them commit to your selected your wedding favors as early as possible first
    , as their suppliers seem to NOT restock those that are OOS along the way. I got the cold reply saying "Stock will only be replenished next year" for the ones we selected despite choosing 3 different ones...

    Hi all!

    Wanted to share my wedding experience for my wedding on 11 Nov held at the Tanglin Room. It was a small cosy dinner for 16 tables. The shape of the room is quite long, so you have a substantial walkway for a nice march in!

    Right from the start, we dealt with Willius, the Catering Sales Manager. For me, he made all the difference in the world. He was always prompt and polite with regards to our enquiries. Even after signing up and paying the deposit, he would drop in with us periodically and let us know the timeline of the things we have to decide on and the details we must provide him with. I was even surprised that on the actual day, he was there to check in on us in the afternoon, once more just before the march in and managed to catch us just when we were checking out the next day! Basically we couldn't have asked for a better coordinator!

    For the actual dinner itself, I observed that the service was very prompt and active in serving drinks. Food was served hot and quite a number of guests commented that it was by far the best food they've experienced at a wedding. Personally, every couple MUST have the Jasmine Tea Smoked Chicken. We scrapped having a 2nd March in just so that we could be seated to eat that dish! :p

    The banquet managers Ian and Isaac were also damn awesome because when we ran out of red wines, instead of asking us to buy more red wines, he offered to convert unopened bottles of white wine to red wines instead, saving us some extra cost. This small gesture shows how genuine they are in caring for their customers.

    Overall, the venue is not the most grand, but it's the people working there that makes it the most special place!

    Oh and breakfast served to your suite the next morning!

    My wife and I had our dinner banquet on 12 Nov at the Royal Pavilion Ballroom for 30 tables. The wedding was a huge success and all our guest left happy and satisfied.

    The manager in charge was Ziya who met all our expectations. Prompt response and accommodating to our requests. Gave us a level of comfort by providing us her HP number right at the beginning. Of course there wasn’t any critical matters that requires us to call her at late night or over weekends. Nonetheless she responses to messages in reasonable time.

    Nearer the date she assigned her assistant Laura who looked into all nitty gritty details of the event, like table arrangements, cocktail reception layout, program schedule & logistic. Can’t inagine not having Laura taking care of these details for us.

    Alas the banquet Mgr Anba and AV supervisor Chua and team added the magic touch to the night with quick reflexes in situation management and ambience control.

    All in all, nice place with a superb team that gives the star on top of the A.
