Wedding Post: Amara Hotel 2017

Hi all, wondering if anyone is following me up on blog. I am not those popular blogger who gets paid to blog a post or whatsoever, but perhaps, my blog can help some readers in finding more information I hope?

Earlier, I had mentioned that I would post more photos and details on some other hotels which we shortlisted.

And this time, I shall post Amara Hotel at Tanjong Pagar.

Amara Hotel Tanjong Pagar Ballroom

We met the coordinator at about 3pm. He brought us to the ballroom and showed us around. The ballroom in Amara is really spacious. It can easily hold up to 42 tables and minimum 25.

Imagine the space around you when you have only 25 tables.

Can you see how big it is?

The ballroom looks dull and there isn't much bright colours in default. As it is from the photo, the ceiling isn't as high due to the "fairy lights" on the ceiling. As we were too early, we couldn't see the full set up and decor of the ballroom. Therefore, it wouldn't be fair if I say that the ballroom is so-so.

We were looking at the 2017 price for wedding banquet. Xiong made a comparison and he realized that the price increase from 2016 to 2017 is a difference of $80.  

And the perks:

Weekend Lunch: $1,088++
Weekend Dinner: $1,188++
Weekend Platinum Lunch & Dinner: $1,288++

It comes with

  • 8 Course Chinese menu
  • Free flow of Chinese tea and soft drinks
  • A bottle of champagne for toasting
  • 1 complimentary bottle of wine for every guarantee table
  • 1 complimentary barrel of 20 liter
  • Waiver of corkage charged and duty-paid hard liquor
  • Choice of wedding favors for all guests and specially designed signature scroll
  • Wedding invitation cars for 70% guaranteed attendance (not inclusive of printing)
  • 1 night stay in Bridal Suite and breakfast for 2 at Element Restaurant
  • Pre-snack delivered to Bridal suite
  •  Parking coupon 20% 
  • Food tasting
  • Complimentary usage of basic sound system and LCD projector with screen
Most of the items given were standard package. Of course, I believed that you can always fight (ask gently) for more free perks and upgrades like that if you confirm with them. 

Overall, we didn't choose them because the price increase from 2016 to 2017 is way too high and the ballroom was too spacious. As we were considering to invite only about 20 tables, our tables would be too far apart and kids will be running rampant around. 

If we have a larger guests, we might consider Amara Hotel.
