Singapore has got its new hotel marvel: The Fullerton Bay, that just opened 6 months ago and I was lucky enough to try it! Completely built over water, the hotel is a stunning jewel-like addition to the renowned Marina Bay waterfront, and is illuminated by the setting sun. The hotel is ensconced between the iconic heritage buildings, Clifford Pier and Customs House. Both buildings played important roles in Singapore’s history and saw the arrival of many of Singapore’s early settlers. The luxury hotel exudes a classical and elegant atmosphere that aptly captures Singapore’s modernity while upholding its heritage. Nestled in the vibrant financial, arts and cultural precinct, the hotel is located with immediate proximity to the bustling dining and entertainment hubs, Boat Quay and Clarke Quay, as well as cultural centers Chinatown, Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall, Singapore Art Museum, Asian Civilizations Museum and Esplanade – Theaters on the Bay. It’s pretty easy to enjoy a sense of arrival via the graceful Clifford Pier entrance and expansive 17-metre wide lobby by design wunderkind, Andre Fu who has been hailed by Monocle Magazine as “Design Master” and by Conde Nast Traveler USA as “Asian Design Sensation”. Fu is also responsible for the Hotel restaurants – Lantern, Clifford and The Landing Point. Set against the egg-white interior, a stunning cylindrical chandelier that measures five meters in diameter suspended at a dramatic 10 meter height. At eye level, two groups of plush lounge seating are positioned in perfect symmetry to enhance the ambience of residential elegance. An intriguing palette of rich marble in varying tones of mineral greys is combined with bespoke furnishings in lush olive greens, burnt orange and deep aubergine shades. At The Fullerton Bay Hotel, each room features floor-to-ceiling windows and exclusive balconies, offering spectacular views of the waterfront and city skyline. My room was 50 square meter, had a lot of natural light for my well-being and a view on a gigantic artwork made with thousands of floating white balls. When you wake up and see that you don’t know if you are still dreaming or if you are already awake. The interior decor features touches of polished rosewood, burl-wood, leather and chrome. The overall color scheme of rich creamy gold creates an ambience of inviting warmth and the bathrooms with separate bath and shower configuration are finished with ivory limestone and rich yellow marble. To make sure you don’t get bored in your bath, a flat-screened TV at the foot of each bathtub completes the attention to detail. If you need more than more, the hotel offers six exclusive and strategically positioned suites at the corner of the building to make sure you get a breathtaking view on each side. The hotel’s five suites are themed after the Chinese, Malay, Indian, Peranakan and Colonial cultures and are named after prolific former-Governors of the Straits Settlements. Alternatively, take a rejuvenating swim in the hotel’s rooftop infinity pool while enjoying the tranquil waterfront sea breeze or cocktails conjured by the bar’s mixologist with panoramic views of the city. Savour destination dining at its finest at the modern brasserie Clifford or a relaxing mid-afternoon treat at The Landing Point. View the beautiful sunset at the chic rooftop bar, Lantern with gourmet nibbles and signature drinks. The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore is the luxury lifestyle for the coveted.
