The Fullerton, Singapore City Malaysia, Singapore
As well as being a quality hotel with fantastic service, the history of theFullerton makes it a much more interesting place to stay than some of the standard high rise city hotels in Singapore.
If you’ve ever watched the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix on TV then the chances are you’ll have seen cars flying past The Fullerton during the race. The grand white building is a majestic colonial gem originally used many years ago as both a post office and a lighthouse. Despite its historic past and period façade the interiors are contemporary and plush with all mod cons. The hotel is located in the heart ofSingaporein the marina area which has a range of waterfront restaurants, many shops and a fascinatingmuseumofAsianculture.
The outdoor infinity pool and many of the rooms have views out across the harbour and the river giving you an excellent viewpoint ofSingaporeskyline. The prime place to take in these views is at The Lighthouse Italian restaurant, situated on the top floor of the hotel where the lighthouse keepers used to guide ships into the harbour. There are other nods to theFullerton’s past throughout the building including a traditional British red post box in the lobby!
In essence this is fantastic quality hotel and the prices are fairly reasonable given the high standard of facilities, style and service.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
All guides were very good, spoke good english and were very knowledgeable. The logistics all worked extremely well, and all the drivers, boatmen etc did a good job. We also found the guides were happy to talk to us on a wide range of issues including politics!
