At The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, it’s the little things that matter
The Fullerton Hotel Singapore might not instantly spring to mind when travellers are considering luxury family breaks, but with timeless style and a glorious location backed by The Fullerton Hotel’s outstanding service and attention to detail, maybe it should.
The Fullerton Building is a magnificent neoclassical Singaporean landmark building adjacent to Marina Bay built in 1928 that through its history has been home to Singapore’s General Post Office, the Exchange Room, Exchange Reference Library and the prestigious Singapore Club. Viewed as one of most sought after locations in Singapore, the building opened as a stunning 400-room five-star luxury heritage hotel in 2001. Backed by outstanding service, unrivalled attention to detail and fabulous facilities, it has grown to be one of the city’s most popular hotels.
Like many old buildings, The Fullerton Hotel has a great deal to tell and its majestic history unfolds via static and interactive displays throughout the hotel. Families are invited to join the free heritage tours where kids can learn about the precinct’s rich and colourful past and gain exclusive access to limited areas within the hotel on the Fullerton Monument Tour. Younger kids will be enthralled by the way teddy bears are used as part of the general narrative; the giant Postmaster bear at the entrance is a firm photographic favourite and a prime example.
The rooms are large with ample space for the extra beds families require. Naturally the facilities are of the highest standard, but for families it’s the little things that matter. The signature Postmaster bear, albeit smaller, makes another appearance and the amenities include child shampoos, creams and wipes. The entertainment pack includes Our Fullerton Adventure colouring books and pencils and kids get a free ice-cream pass – definitely not to be sniffed at!
For parents taking advantage of the hotel’s famous Sunday Champagne Brunch, there’s a supervised Kids’ Room where youngsters can safely have fun with face painting and other activities. There is no full-time kids’ club at the hotel, but what The Fullerton loses there, it gains by close proximity to some of Singapore’s most popular destinations. Overlooking Marina Bay, The Fullerton Hotel sits in pole position for many of Singapore’s must-see attractions.
The Merlion and the Singapore Flyer are just a few minutes’ walk. The famous Helix Bridge connects you to the ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Sands and the fabulous Gardens by the Bay. The Victoria Theatre, the Esplanade Theatres and the Asian Civilisations Museum are on your doorstep. Raffles, Fort Canning and the Cathay Cineplex are just 12 minutes away on foot and if you want to go further afield the hotel is just 200m from Raffles Place MRT station and directly on the bus route. There are also regular free shuttle buses running to Marina Bay, Orchard Road and the financial district, making it easy to get about.
Dining at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is another winner with kids. The all-day dining at Town Restaurant and the Cake Boutique are particularly popular through the week, as is Jade’s fabulous dim sum brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Town Restaurant features an excellent daily themed buffet dinner and is also where the delicious buffet breakfast is served.
With a stunning 25m infinity pool set against the backdrop of the majestic hotel and overlooking the Singapore River, a spa, sauna and gymnasium for older guests, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore really is a serious contender for your next luxury getaway to Singapore.
