  • Testimonial - Wedding on 29th April 2017

    We got married at your awesome hotel on April 29 and were thrown the best party ever.  

    From the start the process was quite easy, despite organising from Singapore where we currently live.  

    Jessica was so responsive, helpful and amazing in dealing with my dozens of questions.  She made us feel valued and from the start we felt like our day was just as important to her to get right. 

    The package was very inclusive and the decorators were fantastic in putting together beautiful centre pieces. 

    The ceremony was beautifully set up by the pool. we were given our own space and felt like we had it all to ourselves even though there were onlookers.

    The food was absolutely delicious!  Our little table buffet as well as the main buffet was presented so nicely.  All the guests LOVED the food as did we and the desserts were amazing.  

    All the wait staff did a famous job of making sure guests had drinks at all times and were also conscious of the tab, advising us when the limit was approaching and making sure my husband got the last drink. 

    We had guests from all over, many who stayed at the resort.  People from Sweden, the UK, Canada and from all over OZ from as far as Perth.  Everyone agreed that the resort was great value for money, with beautiful surrounds and the pool is amazing for both adults and kids. 

    So..  that was the wedding that was.  It truly was an amazing few weeks for us and to have so many friends and family joining us there, the Oasis will hold a special place for so many people.  

    Thanks again so much to EVERYONE for making our trip home and our wedding UNFORGETTABLE.

    Chris and I look forward to staying with you guys next time we come home :)

  • Your personal Wedding Co-ordinator - Jessica Emge

    Nestled in a leafy block right in the heart of the city, the Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort is perfectly situated to offer every convenience and yet is private enough that there is absolutely no view of the resort style pool (or pool bar!) from the street.

    A favourite with locals since it opened, the Novotel Oasis recently celebrated their 20th year and with it a fresh look at their Weddings and Events packages. Jessica Emge is the newly appointed Wedding and Events Co-ordinator, and brings a lovely and warm enthusiasm to her role, “Planning a wedding involves hundreds of decisions. As a great listener, I’ll be there to help move these decisions forward for that personal touch!” she says. 

    Her discretion and attention to detail, prior to and on the day of the event, ensure that all aspects of your wedding run smoothly. Fully inclusive packages are available, which can be tweaked to your specifications and budget – the hotel offers both the personal touch of a boutique hotel, but with the flexibility and resources of the second largest hotel in Cairns - they are also part of the AccorHotels Group.

    Hens parties and engagement parties (with the added bonus of having onsite babysitting) can be held in any of the spaces, and you can even hire your favourite DJ to play in the Banquet Room until the clock strikes midnight!
