Review: The Fullerton Hotel Singapore


Book A Stay

The magnificent Fullerton Hotel Singapore resides inside the iconic Fullerton Building, a grand neoclassical landmark in Singapore. It is just a stone’s throw from the vibrant buzz of Marina Bay, its active nightlife, and iconic attractions, including the Singapore Flyer and ArtScience Museum. Raffles Place MRT train station lies a short walk across the OUE Link bridge.

Dynamically located in the heart of the financial and arts districts, the hotel successfully blends rich heritage with contemporary style and personalized service to offer guests a world-class accommodation experience.

The hotel is located at the mouth of the Singapore River and is a mass of grand staircases, high ceilings, and marble. This area was originally the heart of colonial Singapore. A nearby footbridge dates back as far as 1870.

Style & Character

The magnificent Fullerton Building is a grand neoclassical landmark built in 1928 that was once home to Singapore’s General Post Office, the Exchange Room and Exchange Reference Library, and the prestigious Singapore Club. Today, the 5-Star Fullerton Hotel Singapore has been transformed into a stunning 400-room heritage hotel in Singapore.

This spectacular hotel has a pillared frontage, historic dining rooms, and glorious waterfront views. The surrounding skyscrapers dwarf this historic hotel but it offers a unique slice of history on the waterfront.

When you stay here, you are a three-minute walk from the Boat Quay, which offers a lively nightlife with many restaurants and bars. Beyond Boat Quay, other quays again offer great options for nightlife. Chinatown and Little India are also close by if you take public transport.

The hotel has an equally luxurious but different-styled sister property across the street, the 100-room Fullerton Bay Hotel, housed in a modern waterfront building.


Rooms overlook the sunlit atrium or have verandas with skyline views, or look out over the river promenade or Marina Bay waterfront. The rooms are incredibly generous in size, as are the bathrooms.

The Straits Club Lounge at the Fullerton elevates your luxury stay further by offering breakfast, including champagne breakfast (Veuve Cliquot), afternoon tea, and evening drinks and snacks all for free if you book a club room. Crucially, our luxury travel concierge can get access to this lounge included in your room booking for free.

The food offering includes breakfast, tea, and cocktails in the evening and is so generous that it should fill you up. There are daily specials at each mealtime, and as you would expect from a hotel of this caliber, the food quality and the array is excellent. Although taking advantage of these freebies is lovely, it’s worth popping up to the rooftop bar to take in the views at least once during your stay.

They say: “The Straits Club offers the ultimate service experience to discerning travelers by providing premium accommodation and the highest level of quality and comfort. Guests of The Straits Club enjoy privileges that include round-the-clock personalized service, in-room registration, a complimentary daily Chandon breakfast, afternoon tea, evening canapés, and cocktails in a dedicated lounge with a vintage Peranakan décor featuring Straits Chinese artifacts. Other privileges include preferred laundry rates, pressing service for up to two clothing items, and late check-out (subject to availability). To accommodate guests’ meeting needs, a meeting room for up to six persons may be availed for two hours.”

Service & Facilities

The hotel enjoys a stunning outdoor infinity pool overlooking the city skyline beyond as well as the award-winning Fullerton Spa, an oasis of serenity in a timelessly elegant setting. Committed to providing the finest in luxury, quality and service, The Fullerton Spa offers a range of exceptional treatments and products co-curated with world-renowned premium spa brand ESPA.

The highlight here is the gorgeous pool, which is pictured above, and is infinity in design. Situated on floor two, the pool has excellent river and bay views.

Food & Drink

Guests can savor the varied cuisines of Singapore and around the world, from exquisite Cantonese dim sum and afternoon tea to delicious vegetarian creations. The hotel’s Town Restaurant offers all-day dining featuring local and international flavors. Why not step out onto the al fresco terrace for traditional satay paired with ice-cold craft beers right by the Singapore River? If you’re after something a little more refined, then indulge in a three-tiered Afternoon Tea under the sunlit atrium of The Courtyard filed with dainty savories and sweets. Finally, for a taste of exquisite Chinese cuisine, savor the elegant surroundings and creations at Jade.
