Rasa Sentosa Sunday Garden Party @ Atmosphere by the sea


SPONSORED REVIEW
Rasa Sentosa Garden Party
Are you a fan of fresh seafood, large buffet spread, excellent service, ocean dining and magic show?
If you said yes to all of the above, Rasa Sentosa Resort and Spa Sunday Garden Party is the place to go. To top it off, you get to have a lazy swim in the hotel pool after the buffet. This is one party that is tailored made for families with kids. A perfectly laid-back way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Seafood galore
The first thing that struck as when we entered Atmosphere by the Sea was the multi tiered seafood spread. In case you are wondering, the Sunday Garden Party is actually a buffet event that comes with many additional perks. The Buffet itself is mostly indoors at a little air conditioned house that sits 120 pax.
Fresh prawns.
Maybe the concept of dining next to the sea might have clouded my judgement. However I do think the seafood spread is one of the freshest if not the finest one I had seen to date.
Alaskan King Crab claws
From fresh prawns to crab claws to lobsters , you are spoil for choice.
Fresh from the sea
If you want value for your money, the lobsters do not disappoint. It comes it both baby and regular size.
Other than lobsters, the buckets of fresh oysters, calms and scallops will make any seafood lover goes weak in the knees.
Calms
I think I had landed on seafood paradise.
Deep sea oysters.
An oriental presentation of seafood, the Japanese Sushi, has its place on the seafood counter.
Sushi anyone ?
It's no surprise that the seafood station is my favourite counter at the buffet.
Indoors or Outdoors?
The buffet extends outdoors. You can choose to sit indoors or outdoors. It would have been more romantic to be seated outdoors, enjoying the sea breeze while dining on fine food. However given the erratic weather in Singapore (Super hot or super wet) , dining indoors with kids might be a better option.

Once outdoors, the familiar whiff of barbeque will greet you. Either that or the smoke will lead you to rows of barbeque delights.
Barbeque on the spot
The food is barbeque on the spot, ensuring freshness. Choose from the huge tiger prawns, lamp choose chicken chops, beef, satays and seafood. It is time to say goodbye to diet for a day and indulge in the delectable selection.Just keep calm and eat.
If seafood and barbeque do not suit your palate, there are other options avaliable.
Indian Nann
Choose from Indian Nann, Oriental Bee Hoon, Italian pastas and more. You would surely find something you would like in this International Buffet.

We do recommend you to try the suckling pig.

My mouth is salivating just by writing this post.
Since this is a family affair, the younger ones are not left out. They have a special counter serving their favourite dishes such as fries, nuggets, hot dogs , mashmellows and more.
Kids counter
It may not be the healthiest choice...
But if the little ones are lapping it up and sitting at the same table to enjoy a meal with you, you would appreciate the selction. After the meal, Little Lou actually commented he had ate a lot. In other words, it was a good meal for the kids!
Yummy
To compliment your mains, desserts are an important course.
Desserts
Rasa Sentosa's desserts are made to look good and taste great.
Strawberry fudge
These beautiful dessert are calling out to your sense of sight, smell and taste.
Cakes
Chocolate cones
Nonya cakes
To cap off this sumptuous meal, here is a free flow of wine, bear and juices for the month of August only. A perfect reason to laze a while longer in the restaurant.
If you like themes, there is a special theme running every 1st weekend of the month. We were there during the Twins week and were served by a pair of twins. It was excellent service , twice over.
The good service continued with a surprise birthday cake to celebrate Little Lou birthday this month. He was simply too surprise for words!
Happy birthday surprise.
After a hearty meal, the party began for the little ones.
Enjoying the Gardens
As the band serenade the adults. the children gathered on the lawn to catch the much anticipated magic show.

Let the fun start!
There may be one magician to a healthy crowd of 40 children, but the crowd were under control as they were mesmerized by the magical acts in stored for them.
Now you see it, now you don't
Other activities include ballon sculpting and a treasure hunt around the garden.

The scores of activites had also aroused the resident 4 footer monitor lizard. Guess you cannot keep a party animal away from a happening party.

The party does not end until the complimentary swim at the resort pool. Remember to get your tags from the restaurant so you can use the pool towels.
Liscense to swim
To say we had a wonderful time is an understatement. We might not have the chance to stay in the hotel for a staycation, but this experience was a fun filled way to end the week. The family felt refreshed and energized for the challenges for the new week ahead.
