Grande Dame

Kishore Iyengar uncovers the historic Fullerton Singapore, a landmark of old world charm and new Asia elegance - a singular statement of suave executive hospitality

Witness to the contrasting historical events that encapsuled Singapore, The Fullerton Singapore stands majestically on the edge of the famed Marina Bay and strategically at the head of the financial district. It would be hard to find more splendidly Patrician surroundings than the neo-Palladian structure - once home, among other things, to the city’s general post office - that houses this historic masterpiece, Singapore’s newest luxury property.

Business touches in the Quay rooms include an oval work desk with a three-line phone, dataport, broadband access, a halogen lamp, a drawer helpfully filled with stationery needs and an Internet-capable TV. The bed is huge and the yellow-marbled bathroom has a large tub, a walk-in shower, and is festooned with mirrors. Cool yet comfortable, these are among the nicest and most functional guestrooms in the city with exquisite views of the bay and Singapore river.

Several uppercrust fine dining outlets and bars add to the eclectic distractions of The Fullerton Singapore. The Straits Club focuses on exclusivity with 24-hour personalised service and F&B services, facilitated use of the business centre, free local calls, a reading room and access to the Lounge and Garden. The business centre offerings are the usual contemporary facilities with a slightly expensive rate listing.

Exclusive to the fine trappings of The Fullerton Singapore is the rare and priceless, Museum Quality Wine Collection (the finest and most extensive in Asia) that sets it apart with the 1921 and 1947 Chateau Cheval Blanc.

Though rated high in terms of premium star accommodation in a tourist-centric city like Singapore, The Fullerton Singapore scores on its personalised service and professionalism, colonial ambience and clear advantages of location with this glitzy city’s neon visages and varied attractions at arm’s length.
