Built in 1928, the Fullerton Building was once Singapore’s General Post Office and the center of its commercial and social life. The grand Palladian-style property is still a hub for business and leisure travelers, with a storied past plus modern technology and amenities. The varied dining options include Jade, an upscale Chinese restaurant, and Town, which covers cuisine from the rest of the world and serves an elaborate Sunday brunch. The bars are stylish, and the Spa Artisan delivers traditional Asian therapies with a modern touch, in a garden setting that references the rich history of Singapore and the hotel itself.
In the Area
To explore Singapore’s off duty side, head to Sentosa Island, known for its golf courses, beach clubs, and family-centered activities, or take in the island nation’s colonial history in the posh area around offbeat shopping district Dempsey Hill, known for its traditional black and white mansions. The nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens are filled to the brim with orchids, tropical plants, and locals taking a breather in the shade. Get your bearings with a cruise aboard a bumboat, the sturdy, low-slung vessel that once transported freight. An hour-long tour winds along the Singapore River past skyscrapers, colonial landmarks, and shophouses.
How to Get There
On Sat 7th July 2018, I checked into the Loft Suite of the Fullerton Hotel for a joint celebration of my grand-daughter's (7th) and my (50th) birthday.
As we walked into our assigned Suite, my family and myself were mesmerized by a host of visual treats in the well adorned and beautifully decorated room - a true delight to everyone's eyes and senses. Trust the Fullerton Hotel and their tireless team to open your celebration with a Huge Bang ! They nailed it and delivered in gusto.
Not to mention, the checking in and out process were smooth, efficient and swift. Even the Complimentary Parking ticket was promptly made available to us during check out.
We even had time for a short shopping spree at the Suntec City and by courtesy of the Fullerton Hotel, they arranged for a one-way transfer in an extremely comfortable 7-seater Toyota Alphard (*note : the one-way transfer is available for drop-off at a few shopping malls - you only need to check with the Concierge for availability).
Needless to say, my family and myself had a truly memorable time and thanks to the impeccable arrangement of Mr Boon Chun Khai, Mr Michael Lee and their 5*Star team, we were treated to a full day of enviable VVVIP status of quality family time no money could ever buy.
The title says it all ... perfect location for business or pleasure, beautifully restored historic building, spectacular public areas, great pool, large rooms, wonderful fit out, toiletries are first rate and staff could not be more helpful. Plus breakfast on the terrace is my idea of heaven (and my waistline’s idea of hell).
A colonial building converted into a nice romantic hotel. Room was normal size expected of most standard hotel rooms. Just nice for double occupancy. Nice facilities. Pool at level 2 - small but with great view of skyline of surrounding buildings. Check in was smooth. Housekeeping was very prompt for requests. Concierge was helpful. Parking better to use valet service, as carpark call be full even on normal days. Some small shops in house but nearest shopping Centres 10 mins walk away. Connect to One Fullerton shopping area and tourists sites across MBS, Esplanade etc via maze of escalators and lifts.
Not as wheelchair friendly. Great location though.
I stayed here for business purpose. The technology is very modern and made me feel like personally treated. Breakfast and lunch provides various menu from local menu, western, etc with perfect taste. The location is also strategic. Hotel staff are very friendly and they responded very quick for our request. I am looking forward to stay here again with my family.
We were so lucky to be given a room with a balcony overlooking the fabulous swimming pool. A swimming pool that really lived up to its name, in fact it was possible to really swim in it. Great service. On the balcony and poolside we were often offered juice and fruit skewers. Lunch at the swimming pool was delicious and the gym was well equipped too.
