The fascinating history of The Lion City is celebrated throughout the heritage property of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. By Sushmita Srivastav
The journey of the magnificent Fullerton building began in 1928 when it was built as Singapore’s General Post Office. The grand Neoclassical landmark played a pivotal role in the country’s history. Gazetted as a National Monument in 2015, it was later turned into The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, and has since been offering its guests an unforgettable experience in The Fullerton Heritage precinct—the focal point for waterfront fine dining, upscale shopping, and entertainment in Singapore.
Counted among the most recognisable buildings in the city, this heritage hotel with 400 keys dons an old-world charm. The hotel sports original coffered ceilings, cornices, and restored Italian marble floors, and comes with all modern amenities. The complimentary heritage tours offered by the hotel are the best way to learn about the building’s legacy.
The Fullerton Monument Tour starts with fascinating stories of the Fullerton building, including tales of pioneering political moments, its war-time history, and its role as an important GPO, and includes exclusive access to the preserved areas within the hotel, insights into the three Singapore river bridges, and a stop at the Cavenagh Bridge. The Fullerton Maritime Journey Tour, on the other hand, starts near the waterfront at the sister property of The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore, and traces the city’s rich history as a trading post.
Just a short walk from The Fullerton Hotel Singapore are three of the city’s most loved bridges—Cavenagh Bridge, Anderson Bridge, and Elgin Bridge—as well as the Singapore Cricket Club.
The interactive heritage gallery in the lobby, along with exquisite dining experiences, bespoke services, and holistic spa experiences, make The Fullerton Hotel Singapore an ideal stay option on a visit to The Lion City. Special offers like The Fullerton Hotel Singapore’s Advance Purchase Special, with up to 25 per cent off on the ‘Best Available Rate’ and dining credits for restaurants, are available for early birds.
