The Fullerton Hotel
An award-winning spa, outdoor infinity pool with river views, four fantastic restaurants and a rooftop lounge; The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is five-star living at its finest, having even been declared a national monument in recent years.
Taking pride of place on the banks of the Singapore River, and within touching distance of the Asian Civilizations Museum, National Gallery, Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall – among others – you will not only be staying in a building that’s historic in its own right, but have the city’s main cultural attractions on your doorstep too. In truth, simply staying at The Fullerton Singapore is a highlight of any trip to this captivating city. Built in the mid-1920s, the building itself is wrapped in Romanesque columns, marble flooring and decorative chandeliers, emanating a long-lost style of grandiose, solid architecture that simply cannot be replicated in modern-day buildings, a fact which only adds to The Fullerton’s charm.
Such heritage does not mean that this is a hotel stuck in the past however, far from it. The decadent Fullerton Spa, for example, is a cutting-edge haven of rituals and aromatherapy treatments, massage, scrubs, beauty salon services and relaxation rooms. There’s also a well-equipped gym, and a beautiful outdoor infinity pool surrounded by shaded sofas, overlooking the Singapore River. Then comes the Lighthouse Restaurant and Rooftop Bar, just one of four fine dining restaurants though arguably the most impressive, as a stylish al fresco patio provides breathtaking views across the city skyline; cameras at the ready for one of the best bars in Singapore. The Fullerton certainly makes no secret of its overall gastronomic experience, from the quality of the cuisine to the ambience of its cocktail and lounge bars, there is more than one entire evening of entertainment to be had here, without leaving the hotel at all.
Guestrooms and suites stray somewhere between the traditional and contemporary themes that epitomise this hotel. On the one hand you have heavy, dark wood furnishings, classical patterns on the floor and original cornicing above, while on the other, bathrooms are as modern as can be with their walk-in rain showers, spa bathtubs, chrome and marble. The wider room is also laden with mod-cons, even if the décor is a touch modest. Rooms with a Singapore view are particularly impressive and, if possible, opt for those with a furnished terrace to ensure daily sunset views of the river, and cityscape behind.
So, for a luxury hotel in the heart of Singapore, award-winning onsite facilities and five-star service, an outdoor infinity pool with river views, gourmet food, history and heritage plus that all-important rooftop bar, The Fullerton Singapore is surely your answer.
