SINGAPORE – May 2017 – The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore now offers meeting and event planners, and wedding couples, a novel venue for hosting a memorable outdoor pool party.
Following a recent transformation, the brand new outdoor swimming pool boasts a three-tiered timber pool deck flanked by sun loungers, private cabanas, a pool bar and an outdoor grill. Located next the new Ritz-Carlton Spa and Gym, this holistic lifestyle and events arena on level one can be booked for exclusive use.
“In our endeavour to innovate the luxury hotel experience, we came up with the concept of offering our guests a versatile outdoor lifestyle events venue through providing the flexibility of holding events over water through partially, or completely covering the pool. We are the first luxury hotel in Singapore to offer this capability of transforming events with a pool cover”, said Mr. Peter Mainguy, General Manager.
Made of Plexiglas, also known as acrylic glass, the transparent Plexiglas table-tops are extremely durable and engineered to support weights of up to 800 kilograms per cube. When placed into the water, the standing Plexiglas-top cubes can be custom-built to take on various shapes; from a rectangle, to a square or even a T-shape to accommodate the entire length and or width of the pool, or just a portion to suit a variety of purposes.
These include a car or product launch; a pool party; an outdoor concert with a dancefloor; a fashion show; or even a wedding. The outdoor atmosphere can be accentuated with the possibility of video projection mapping, LED lighting in the trees and foliage, as well as underwater lighting to supplement the pool’s floodlights.
With a new entrance accessible via Raffles Avenue, guests attending events by the pool now have the option of dropping off or valet parking instead of having to go through the main hotel lobby and/or carpark.
Able to withstand the weight of any car, make a grand arrival via the new pool entrance along Raffles Avenue by literally driving the latest car model onto the rectangular pool platform right in front of your guests.
For the ultimate poolside revelry, transform the swimming pool into an exciting club venue by building a dance floor for 200 persons to fit perfectly on top of it. Maximise the space by constructing an elevated DJ console above the platform for a modern poolside party experience.
When illuminated from below the water, the transparent pool cover gives the effect of walking on water. Make strides in the fashion scene with a unique outdoor runway showcase held over the pool.
Say “I do” on an aisle built over water. This unique wedding set up allows couples to personalise the space with a floral arch, candles, billowing fabrics and even custom build a wedding chapel or pavilion. This elevated “beach” wedding concept will undoubtedly be etched in the couple’s minds and that of their guests for eternity.
Thrill your guests with a unique gastronomic overwater dining experience. The pool platform can accommodate between 150 to 200 persons for a sit-down buffet dinner; or between 150 to 450 people for a cocktail reception.
Prices start from SGD80 for a cocktail reception for a minimum of 50 persons. A minimum food and beverage spend of SGD18,000 is required to close the pool for exclusive use, with an additional SGD12,000 for the custom set-up of your preferred pool cover configuration.
