The Fullerton Bay Hotel which opened in the summer of 2010 as Marina Bay’s first waterfront hotel, comprises of 100 rooms and 6 individually-themed suites, each with magnificent marina views, balconies and sundecks, the hotel offers a luxury design element to travellers visiting Singapore’s hottest new district.
LCL Architects, the group behind the hotel’s inspiring glass facade, was also responsible for the creation of the bedrooms, whilst the public areas and restaurants are the latest project from design wunderkind, Andre Fu.
Guests will enter the hotel through a 56ft 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 16ft wide cylindrical chandelier, suspended 33ft 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.
Utilising 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 travellers are never out of touch.
Each of the hotel’s six suites, including the 1636 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.
The rooms 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 restaurants, designed by Andre Fu, include Clifford and Lantern.
Lantern is a stylish rooftop bar, surrounding the hotel’s 25m rooftop swimming pool, where guests can relax and unwind whilst 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 brasserie 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.
