Guests can enjoy afternoon tea in the lounge, a tipple at the bar or unwind with a book in the library which boats great views of the surrounding Banyan trees. For those wanting to explore further there's a host of attractions nearby for everyone as the history buffs can explore the National Museums of Singapore, the culture vultures can pay visit to Sri Mariamman Temple and the Nature Park serves the recreational.

Gardens, pool and exterior of the Capella


Capella offers something completely unique in Singapore; set on Sentosa Island, just off the southern coast of the city, it sprawls across 30 acres of verdant gardens and grounds, offering respite from the hum of Singapore's city centre.

The Fullerton Bay Hotel

The Fullerton Bay Hotel

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.



Occupying an entire block in downtown Singapore, the magnificent ivory frontage of Raffles, complete with immaculately presented Sikh Doormen, has become an icon of the city.

The Mandarin Oriental Singapore

The Mandarin Oriental Singapore

Enjoying a prime spot on Marina Bay, guests at the Mandarin Oriental can enjoy the views across the harbour to the iconic triple towers of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel (after all, it’s always better to see the view, than to be the view), and the towering glass towers of the CBD.

The Fullerton

The Fullerton

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.
