In 1820, just one year after the Sir Stamford Raffles found the lost city of ‘Singapura’, raised the British Flag and gave it its modern name – Singapore – a large fortress was built upon a rocky promontory and named Fort Fullerton. After many reincarnations, from military headquarters, to General Post Office, this site was to become the beautiful Fullerton Hotel which stands today.
The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is a masterful blend of rich heritage and contemporary style. The hotel is conveniently located on Marina Bay harbour, within easy reach of cultural sites including the Sir Stamford Raffles Statue and Asian Civilizations Museum, making it an ideal place to stay whilst visiting the city.
The 400 guestrooms and suites are styled to reflect the colonial history of the hotel, whilst still offering the modern amenities expected by today's travellers. Quay rooms look out over Marina Bay, whilst Suite rooms are independently designed, and include many 1920's architectural details.
Diners can explore all culinary corners of the planet at The Fullerton; Jade is the Chinese restaurant, whilst The Courtyard offers an Indian buffet, Japanese buffet and Afternoon tea, The Town serves an international menu, whilst fine Italian dining with harbour views can be enjoyed at The Lighthouse. The Post Bar is a popular spot with Singaporeans, expats and tourists alike, with the bar retaining the original ceiling and pillars of the General Post Office - a great spot for aperitifs.
As far as recreation goes, aside from pottering around the city, the hotel has an outdoor swimming pool, luxurious spa, sauna and jacuzzi, luxury boutiques and a Heritage Gallery, which documents the rich history of the city, and the hotel site.
