An Indulgent Day Away - Sunday Garden Party

As parents of younger kids, we would often dream about going away on a vacation, being away from the usual shopping malls we visit and just chilling on the beach. And having to plan the vacation with a 3 year old and 1 year old in mind, putting together the endless packing list of diapers, milk powder, first aid kit, just in case medication, meal plans, clothes for the little ones for outdoor play, for indoor play, for the beach – it seemed like mission impossible. In fact, it stresses me out too much before even making the trip.

How does a garden party by the sea with a sumptuous spread of fresh seafood, grilled meats and decadent dessert sound to you? Top that with entertainment for the kids and water play after, all on our sunny island! Here’s our day away at Sunday Garden Party at Atmosphere By The Sea in Shangri La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa. It’s almost like a day trip for us.

Driving into Sentosa, and arriving at Shangri La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa, we headed directly towards Atmosphere by The Sea. There were both indoor and outdoor seating and with two kids who are bound to perspire in the afternoon sun (and us as well, from fussing over them), we went for indoor seating. It was truly a relaxing and nice view from our dining area as most tables were facing the sea view. 

Walking through the line of food, all meticulously prepared and displayed, I was in awe. I went for the fresh seafood first as I was attracted by the seafood tower overflowing with king crab legs, lobsters, prawns and oysters. This was my favourite and I went back for more. The king crab legs were so succulent and sweet, and the prawns and lobsters all tempted me go for more servings. Just look at this spread. 

There was a live carving station, with succulent roasts, in the outdoors by the waterfront. 

And a comprehensive array of appetisers, soups, pastas.

Here's the selection of over 12 types of gourmet cheese imported from France.

Especially for the kids, there was a special buffet corner including hotdog buns, nuggets and fries, waffles and pancakes as well as spaghetti bolognaise. How thoughtful. Although these weren’t the most healthy options but they sure kept the kids happy. I love the fries and nuggets too and stole some from their plates. 

Always leaving room for dessert, I could not decide which not to go for. Just look at their presentation. We ended up trying a little of everything and I especially like their macarons and cheese cake.

There was also an ice cream station for the kids to personalize their own ice cream flavors and toppings. I was impressed by the very attentive and caring service staff throughout, how they greeted us at the door, arranging for the utensils and drinks for the kids and helping them at the buffet line. 

There was a live music performance, and for the kids, a magic show and balloon sculpting by the sea. This gave us a breather when the kids participated in the activities. 

We went to chill by the sea before making our way to water play in the resort. 

The Sunday Garden Party includes complimentary access to the resort’s natural water swimming pool, children’s slides and splash pad so do remember to pack your swim suits. Simply check with the restaurant staff for your wrist tag to access the water area. What a great idea, to burn off the calories and for the kids to enjoy water play. 

It was a truly indulgent day away for us and we would recommend this for families with young kids as it was very family friendly, almost 80% of the diners were with kids. The restaurant staff were all really good with kids and they came by frequently to check if we needed anything. Parking was also just by the water play area so it was convenient for us to bring our strollers and still be able to access the car if we forgot anything. Free parking is available on a first come first served basis, ask for your parking coupon before you leave the restaurant. 

Totally exhausted after a fun-filled day
