@xinyi, from wat i saw is ... theres still some cost apart from the nett price that they quoted for per table. so its quite expensive when u add that all up. 1 most impt to note is ... they dun provid LCD projector... rental is @ 440++
LCD projector was loaned to me complimentary by rasa sentosa. I stated upfront in my requirement. Corkage waiver. Free flow of beer. 5 coaches.
I had signed up during 2008 wedding show and min guaranteed 20 tables.
I held my wedding last dec on a Sat at $898 nett/table.
Food was just enough for everyone, and guests commented that the there was quite a lot of real shark fin and food was delicious and service was good too.
Scenery setting is fantastic, something different from Orchard rd ballroom where once u n ur guests are in there. u will just be around the ballroom area with no scenery. Only bad pt is my guests got difficulty finding parking in Rasa even though I had a reserved list as got other events going on at Rasa.
Overall,didn't regret holding my evening solemnisation by the lobby lounge and wedding banquet at the The Pavilion even though i had many relatives n parents initially complaining.
After the wedding, they thought it was something different and relaxing. and find it a beautiful wedding. Many foreign guests were there for a holiday and were very curious about this wedding event and gave compliments to my relatives who had dolled up and also to me.
hi jes, lcd projector is no issue to me.. can always take from my office.. we hav our own screen also..
xesthir, thank u so much for the infor.. am still deciding between rasa n club chinois.. my rasa coordinator told me for sat it'll be $938 nett now.. 40 bucks more than urs.. which we tot it's quite expensive
u had your solemnisation by the lobby lounge? is pavilion's decor too plain?
Yah.. saturday is the most expensive day to hold wedding banquet at rasa sentosa.
A few yrs ago.. rasa sentosa only $800-$820 leh.. cannot compare lah. every yr price goes up.
Yeah, i have a beautiful solemisation with a pink n white rose arch at the lobby lounge. It's sheltered yet still open concept can see scenery. Afraid outdoor will rain, especialyl in dec, dun want to add additional stress.
Pavilion after decoration is quite nice lor, with the roses stand and table roses and arch. If u want more extensive deco, u can opt to engage ur own florist and exchange other stuff from rasa.
Actually most impt is food is good lah. Must fill up their stomach with good food.
Transportation forever an issue at rasa. Other hotels at rasa, i believe also have similar issue. Can try to negotiate for more coaches lo..
Actually my coordinator made some blunder earlier.. made me upset so in then end gave me some more FOC stuff..so i am lucky or unlucky.. ha
mine's a chinese dinner, so I can't comment on the buffet dinner food tasting.. so sorry..
but wishing u all the best though! do try to get what you want, think the food tasting is def impt.. wonder wat does yr contract say..
> xesthir, YEAH!! the pavilion.. my htb n i love the scenery which we can view from the ballroom.. it's not the usual boring ballroom.. hehee.. your anniversary stay, is it complimentary? or u jus decided to hav it there to celebrate ur anniversary?
Your solemnisation so special! We only managed to get a room from Rasa to hold our solemnisation. Can share the photos for your lobby loungue solemnisation? Can send to [email protected] ?
I gave a list of car plate no. to my coordinator who said she gave the car park ushers/ security at the front, but in the end still blocked by them...for those vip cars which come later, they were told to mark at merlion. my aunt was so pissed that she raised her voice to scold them coz my solemnization was 6pm and it was already late 5+pm .so she just drove in bypassing them.
Oh yah even after telling them that the brides parents are inside the car, going to witness the solemnization, the security still tell her to park merlion. /Faint. u can imagine how hot my aunt was. All the brothers canot come in too at 4pm /faint... i had to call my coordinator to do something abt it.
