We chose Encore because we loved the idea of having our celebration in a venue that was central to the city without being in the middle of the chaos, had a view of the beach which our guests could enjoy on the balmy night and the option of having our ‘bridal table’ in the center of the room really won us over.”

“Hi, my husband and I attended the wedding of Katelyn and Salam on 13 January this year and we wanted to let you know that it was the best wedding reception that we had ever attended. Your facilities are just gorgeous with an iconic view, and your staff couldn’t do enough for us; without being obvious, they just seemed to be there if we needed anything. And now the food, we are both committed carnivores, and I thought I was making the ultimate sacrifice swapping my Massaman curry for my husband’s pumpkin and goat’s cheese ravioli. Holy cow! I can still taste the subtle yet complex flavours of that dish as I write about it. As it turned out, I hadn’t made any sort of sacrifice: I could (nearly) give up meat if I knew I could substitute it with that ravioli. Once again, thank you for helping to make two wonderful people’s wedding so special and for spoiling their guests so fully.” Therese, guest of Katelyn & Salam, Wedding, 13th February 2018

“As soon as we walked into Encore we knew it was perfect. When we first walked down the foyer hallway and entered the room we knew Encore was the place for our wedding. We loved the big open room overlooking the beach and palm trees. The view from the room was perfect and we loved that the room was so spacious with a very large dancefloor. We were blown away with the help we received from Amy and the food / drink options were outstanding. The communication we received from Amy was outstanding and it made me feel very comfortable knowing how easy it was to get in touch with her. The co-ordination of the event was perfect.  Amy listened to everything we wanted and she had some wonderful ideas that we used also. Everything was communicated very clearly and I had no concerns. The staff were extremely attentive and our guests were thrilled with the service they received. A big thank you to Michael also, he made sure the night ran so smoothly for us and we were so pleased with his efforts. The food was outstanding. All our guests mentioned how much they loved the food. All dishes were extremely delicious and looked amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. Everything ran so smoothly from our initial contact with Amy and right through to the end of our wedding night. Our wedding was everything we had imagined it would be, and we’re so happy we chose Encore as our venue. A big thank you for all your help from the start, your organization and wonderful communication made me feel very at ease and I knew everything was under control. Also a big thank you to Michael who helped calm our nerves and made sure our wedding night ran as smooth as it did. We’re very grateful to you both for all your efforts.” Larna & Tim, Wedding, 12th January 2018
