Many of Singapore’s 20th Century immigrants made landfall at Clifford Pier in Marina Bay Sands, and the Fullerton Bay Hotel may well make you want to migrate there too.
The hotel artfully blends colonial influences and cutting edge design across its 100 rooms and suites, all encased in a futuristic glass exterior overlooking the water in a perfect CBD location. All the rooms have polished rosewood surfaces, contemporary screens, high quality Egyptian cotton sheets and bathrobes, goose down duvets, balconies (albeit small ones in the lower room types) and well-appointed bathrooms. The Premier Bay View Rooms even have their own Jacuzzis, while the expansive suites floors on the upper floors have even more expansive views.
The accommodation is enhanced by a selection of excellent restaurants such as La Brasserie, serving classical French bistro cuisine in a dining room with 30ft tall floor to ceiling windows overlooking the bay. The Landing Point, named in honour of the arriving migrants of old, is located in a marble and mosaic tiled promenade and focuses around a 40ft bar where the team serve classic comfort food dishes and snacks alongside afternoon tea and cocktails. Next, the Clifford Pier restaurant pays gastronomic homage to Singapore's cultural fusion and the delicious dishes it has produced, blending Chinese, Japanese, Indian and European flavours and cooking techniques. Finally, and literally hitting the heights, is the rooftop Lantern Bar overlooking the water and city skyline and serving a wide range of champagnes and cocktails next to one of the city's finest rooftop pool. The rooftop is also home to the 24-hr gym, complete with state of the art equipment and an outdoor deck for Pilates and yoga with a serious view.
Why we love it
Because the vibrant new Singapore demanded a vibrant new boutique hotel, and in the Fullerton Bay Hotel, the city got exactly what it deserved.
