HONORS CIRCLE: SINGAPORE
The Fullerton Hotel Singapore
1 Fullerton Square, Singapore
Situated at the mouth of the Singapore River, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore inhabits a striking neoclassical building (now recognized as a national monument) that was originally home to Singapore’s General Post Office. With its grand architecture and stylish contemporary interiors, the 400-room property offers a perfect blend of the old and the new.
Full of character, the rooms and suites are uniquely configured due to the nature of the building’s heritage status, though all share the same elegant aesthetic. Options include two-story lofts and suites with outdoor terraces, balconied Premier Quay rooms, and the grand Governor Suite, which comes with a veranda flanked by six-meter-tall Doric columns.
The location is also unbeatable. Sitting centrally at an address designated as Mile Zero—the point from which all road distances in Singapore are measured the hotel is just a stone’s throw from the city’s historic civic district, as well as iconic landmarks and attractions such as the National Gallery Singapore, Boat Quay, Merlion Park, and Gardens by the Bay.
Dining establishments include Jade, a Michelin Plate–awarded restaurant serving sophisticated Chinese cuisine; Town Restaurant, with its alfresco riverside terrace and a menu of local and international flavors; and, located in the hotel’s sunlit atrium lobby, The Courtyard, which is renowned for its leisurely afternoon tea.
Guests looking to unwind can avail themselves of a comprehensive range of restorative treatments at the Fullerton Spa, or relax by the 25-meter outdoor infinity pool that overlooks the Singapore River. For something less sedate, a collection of specially curated activities dubbed Fullerton Experiences offers everything from vintage sidecar tours and handson perfume workshops to experiential sustainable Fullerton farm tours.
