Vintage Meets Modern at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore
The vintage-modern combination is one of the best to gush on. And it is specifically special when it is in a colonial era building in Singapore like the one that houses The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. While the city in itself is one of the world’s favourite business destinations, it is also one of those few places that can balance being a modern city while keeping its colonial past intact.
The Fullerton Hotel Singapore fairs wonderfully. Built in 1928 and once home to Singapore’s General Post Office, the Exchange Room and Exchange Reference Library and the Singapore Club, the landmark building was transformed into a 400-room heritage hotel over a decade and half ago. But the history goes beyond this to the early 19th century when there stood a fort Fullerton, named after the first governor of the Straits Settlements.
Our Favourite Corners
The neoclassical behemoth, strategically located where the Singapore River meets the sea and at zero mile, has been immensely significant in the history of the island country and bears the weight of its past. It is little wonder then that it was gazetted as the 71st National Monument by Singapore’s Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Long, last December. The hotel, as a homage to its past, has two functioning postboxes placed in the lobby, both carrying the royal crest of Queen Elizabeth. As the heritage property keeps evolving to suit the modern taste (the latest being the transformation of Ballroom, introduction of LED chandelier lightning and state-of-art sound system) and keep itself among the preferred destination for meetings, milestone celebrations and official events.
