Romantic Garden Weddings on the Lawn at Equarius Hotel, Resorts World Sentosa

Home to six world-class hotels, Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquarium, Adventure Cove Waterpark, Dolphin Island, Maritime Experiential Museum and Singapore’s largest luxury spa – ESPA at RWS, it is no surprise that Resorts World Sentosa is home to a plethora of unique and beautiful wedding venues in Singapore. In this issue, we step foot into Equarius Hotel to discover what it has to offer for your once-in-a-lifetime celebration.

Situated at the southernmost tip of continental Asia and nestled within lush greenery, Equarius Hotel is a haven for nature lovers, and one of the reasons why Singapore is well-known to be a garden city. Apart from their spacious rooms boasting panoramic views of nature’s best, the hotel is also home to an iconic spacious lawn that is perfect for a garden wedding. To top it off, the entire second floor of the hotel is exclusive and dedicated to stylish function rooms to host celebrations and events alike. Voted as Asia’s leading hotel suite by World Travel Awards in 2017, you can be assured of an experience to remember. Read on to discover more.

8 Reasons to Host your Wedding at Equarius Hotel

1. A dreamy garden solemnization venue at the Equarius Lawn

Once we had our eyes on the Equarius Lawn, we could not stop fantasizing about having a garden wedding here. Whether you wanted to exchange your vows under blue skies or dine alfresco under the stars, this perfectly manicured lawn is ideal for a romantic garden wedding. Spacious and versatile, you can feel free to design a setup that is unique to your celebration. 

The Equarius Lawn can accommodate up to 400 standing and 220 seated guests. Rest assured that AV Equipment, LCD TVs, speakers, and additional lights can be set up for you by the wedding team upon request**.

Garden Eden Solemnization Package: 

The solemnization package is priced* at $98++ per person (min 50 pax) for a high tea buffet. Lunch or dinner buffet menus are available at $118/138++ per person. Click here to view their solemnization package.

**May be subject to additional cost, depending on your request. Please approach vendor directly to inquire.  

2. Have a hearty reception at the indoor Glass Pavilion

After exchanging your vows under the clear blue skies, you can head to the Glass Pavilion to have your reception in indoor comforts.  The pavilion’s glass walls allow you to see through to the lawn so you and your guests can still enjoy relaxing views of greenery while enjoying the cool breeze from the air-conditioning. If you are too big a fan of the outdoors, you can push open the glass panelled doors to create an open-air pavilion too!

The Pavilion can host 40 seated guests. Alternatively, another idea would be to flip the sequence! You can hold your solemnization at the Glass Pavilion before dining alfresco on the lawn in the evening during cooler temperatures.

3. Enjoy elegant settings in stylish rooms

If the Glass Pavilion is not able to accommodate your larger group of guests, head to the second floor of Equarius Hotel. Dedicated to celebrations and events, this floor has 7 banquet rooms with a total area of 1,600 sqm, each able to accommodate 100-150 guests.

Each room has an extended balcony, high ceilings, and full-length windows, allowing for natural daylight and views of lush greenery to enter and be part of your celebration. Your guests will definitely enjoy being close to nature and away from the busy city life. Additionally, the rooms come equipped with built-in ceiling speakers, projectors, screens, wireless microphones, and podiums, which reduces the hassle for any outside equipment required.

4. Host a private affair at a celebrity chef restaurant

When it comes to delivering an experience like no other, I believe it starts with food. Resorts World Sentosa has some of the best restaurants in town that are helmed by famous celebrity chefs in the culinary world. One such restaurant is Tangerine. Located on the first floor of ESPA, it is only steps away from Equarius Hotel. After your garden solemnization, you together with your guests, can head over for a gastronomic experience by Thai Celebrity Chef Ian Kittichai that promise to nourish and excite the palate.

Drawing inspiration from both Asian and Western dishes, Thai Celebrity Chef Ian Kittichai aims to deliver an innovative twist in what he serves his guests. Inspired by a ‘Farm to Table’ concept that focuses on sustainability, Chef Ian incorporates whole, natural ingredients to create light, healthy and nutritious dishes that taste good. Each dish is designed to be well-balanced, easily digestible and to leave guests wanting more.

p.s I recommend the Double-boiled Nashi Pear soup to be included in your menu. Packed with vitamins and fiber, it is both healthy and a delicious start to your meal. Watch the video below to see more creations, but fair warning, it may cause you to salivate!

5. Indulge in spacious 5-star accommodations (and butler service)

A common theme lies in the rooms at the Equarius Hotel – spacious and luxurious. The deluxe rooms here are some of the most spacious you can find in Singapore! With high ceilings and natural sunlight streaming in, living in one of these rooms make you feel free. Deluxe rooms also come with a balcony boasting panoramic views of either the forest or sea, so waking up in the morning is probably going to be the moment you look forward to the most.

The bathrooms are also incredibly spacious, with two vanity areas (no more having to fight over the sink), a bathtub and a separate shower area. To top off the incredible experience, rest assured that you will have a restful slumber on their luxe mattresses that are paired with Egyptian cotton bed linen that is no less than 400 thread count! Pillow and bath menus are also available for your choosing.

A Deluxe Room stay is included in the wedding and solemnization packages offered by Equarius Hotel. If you want seek more indulgence on this very special day, you can opt to upgrade your experience to a suite to enjoy 24-hour personalized service brought to you by your very own butler. The suites at Equarius Hotel also allows for a connecting twin room that can be made available upon request.

6. Celebrate romance in the Ocean Suite at Equarius Hotel

While we are on the topic of suites, I’m about to introduce you a unique and unforgettable experience that you can enjoy in one of the iconic suites in Equarius Hotel – the Ocean Suite.

Designed like a 2-storey townhouse, the upper floor consists of a living area and an open-air Jacuzzi, whereas the lower floor is where you can have a restful slumber with an underwater view of over 40,000 marine fishes! It truly gifts you with an experience of both land and sea for your wedding night.

Furthermore, these Ocean Suites are discretely tucked away on one side of the world’s largest aquarium, so you can be assured that your experience is one of ultimate comfort and privacy. There are only 11 of such suites available in the hotel, so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment!

7. Endless pampering at Singapore’s largest luxury spa

Just steps away from Equarius Hotel is ESPA, Singapore’s largest luxury spa, which makes pre or post-wedding pampering super convenient. Voted as the Country Winner of the World Luxury Awards 2017, the spa is an epic 10,000 sqm compound that brings you an oasis of tranquility.  The airy spaces, enchanting pools, and picturesque views make it easy for you to have an immersive and mesmerizing experience.

A visit to the spa* will also allow you to have complimentary use of their facilities such as the Crystal Steam Rooms, Rock Saunas, Ice Fountains, Experience Showers, Outdoor Vitality Pools, Sleep Zone and Social Relaxation Lounge. A must-visit is the outdoor Japanese onsen pool and the Rock Sauna! I could spend an entire day just enjoying their facilities.

*Simply book a minimum 60-minute face or body treatment.

8. A greener approach to living

Sustainability is one of the key concerns that plague our world today. In line with a greener philosophy, Equarius Hotel has large glass panels in the hope to usher in more natural light to reduce the need for electricity consumption. Their ceiling fans are made from recycled wood. With its earthy tones and many plants, staying at this hotel is also an immersive experience of being close to Mother Nature.
