    Experience with Amara Singapore Hotel @ Tanjong Pagar

    Hi

    Anybody holding their banquet there?

    Let me share my pre-experience ...

    I will be holding my banquet there end of Nov-11.
    My coordinator Ms Violette is great, friendly and helpful.

    She explains clearly and gives suggestions as well as recommendations.

    Looking forward to my banquet in Nov-11.

    Hi,

    I just had the site visit with Ms Violette last evening. I also agree that she is a very warm and helpful person.

    Astutekitty, how many tables do you have?? Have you viewed the actual set-up already? I quite like the overall feel of the ballroom. However, i'm concerned that it may look different with the set-up on the AD.

    Reason of my concern is that previously i went to another hotel with the similar ceiling height and without the set-up, everything looks spacious and comfortable. However, i went to view the actual set-up last sat and it looks pretty different. Other than the foyer area being very cramped, the ceiling also looks especially low. =(

    I'm quite particular with the ceiling ht cos i get headaches very easily in cramped and crowded places. My HTB is quite amused by me cos i can scrutinize every details of the hotel, from the facade, the interior, the foyer area where we hold the recept, the wallpaper, the carpet and lastly and most importantly the ceiling height and set-up. haha..I feel quite paiseh towards him sometimes...=p

    Hey.. Amara has a nice poolside, though ceiling low, the ballroom is quite big. Location also accesible, not a bad place.

    Hi Yappie

    Sorry for my late reply.

    Initially, I thought was only 30 tables and now it increased to 42+. Hence, we are not worried about the number of guests versus the place size of 42 tables. =x

    Based on the pictures shared by Ms Violette about the floral decoration, it looks alright. However, I visited Amara again to collect the invitation cards, she mentioned that they will be changing decoration etc. Hence, she will confirm with us the details again. ^^
