The Fullerton Bay Hotel, Singapore's Newest Luxury Design Hotel Opened Its Doors June 2010

The Fullerton Heritage, Singapore is delighted to announce the much anticipated opening of Marina Bay’s first waterfront hotel, The Fullerton Bay Hotel, took place on June 1, 2010. Comprising 100 rooms and six individually-themed suites, each with magnificent marina views, balconies and sundecks, the hotel offers a luxury design element to travelers visiting Singapore’s hottest new district.

LCL Architects, the group behind the hotel’s inspiring glass facade, is also responsible for the creation of the bedrooms, while the public areas and restaurants are the latest project from design wunderkind, Andre Fu. Guests enter the hotel through a 56-ft.-wide lobby at the historic Clifford Pier, an important historic site which saw the arrival of many of Singapore’s early settlers. This central meeting point is dominated by a 16-ft.-wide cylindrical chan delier, suspended 33 ft. above the ground. The public areas are steeped in the city’s history with Fu using vintage nautical maps and local artists to create an atmosphere that truly reflects the cultural melting pot that is Singapore.

Utilizing materials and designs such as polished rosewood and latticed screens, as well as leather and chrome, LCL Architects has created an elegant and refined atmosphere in the bedrooms with a predominantly neutral palette throughout. This classical look is combined with high-spec technology to ensure that the hotel’s modern travelers are never out of touch. Each of the hotel’s six suites, including the 1,636-sq.ft. Presidential Suite, are individually themed to reflect the wealth of cultures in Singapore’s cosmopolitan population, including Chinese, Malay, Indian, Pernakan, and Colonial and are situated on the upper three stories of the hotel, in prime corner positions. Each are adorned with bespoke artwork and antiques alongside contemporary pieces that embody the ethnic spirit unique to the suite’s assigned culture.

The hotel’s three restaurants, designed by Andre Fu, include Clifford, The Landing Point and Lantern. Lantern is a stylish rooftop bar, surrounding the hotel’s 25m rooftop swimming pool, where guests can relax and unwind while watching the world go by with 360° views of the Marina Bay waterfront and famous Singapore skyline. This urban oasis offers the best sunset views in the city and is the perfect location for a tête-à-tête or cocktail party.

Clifford, which boasts 33-ft. floor-to-ceiling windows with views out to Marina Bay and an 800-bottle wine library, serves modern brassiere fare. The restaurant has one semi-private dining room for up to 10 guests as well as an al fresco dining balcony for up to 40 guests. The Landing Point is located alongside the impressive internal bespoke marble promenade, overlooking the waterfront. With a 43-ft.-long bar and vast outdoor terrace, The Landing Point is set to become another favorite for Singaporeans and hotel guests alike. Deluxe Rooms start from USD$800 excluding services and taxes. For more information visit www.fullertonbayhotel.com.
