We think that one of the best hotels to stay at for the Singapore Formula 1 race this year is The Fullerton. Kiwi Insider, Fiona Seres gives us the lo-down on this gorgeous hotel in Singapore.
The Fullerton Hotel:
With commanding views over the Singapore River and harbor, the Fullerton Hotel makes you feel like you’ve landed in the right place in Singapore.
And, if you’re attending the 2009 Grand Prix in Singapore, you really will be in the right place!
The Fullerton is located at the heart of the Grand Prix action. Many of the suites have a view of the grand prix, as the hotel is located at the electrifying hairpin Turn 13. The best place to see it would be from the President’s suite. At 199 square meters, this spacious suite even has a grand piano and a spectacular glass enclosed verandah graced by 20-foot Doric columns.
Otherwise guests can experience the excitement at the Post Bar at the hotel, sipping on a Fullerton Hairpin, one of the Post Bar’s signature cocktails.
The Fullerton is located right in the Central Business district and enjoys close proximity to Singapore’s cultural centre. The Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall are nearby, as well as the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay and the Boat Quay, one of Singapore’s exceptional dining and entertainment areas is along the promenade just outside the hotel.
The transformation from the old general post office into a five star hotel is what makes this hotel unique. With its distinguished Doric columns and monumental porte cocheres, The Fullerton Hotel has an old world charm and graciousness, but it is grounded in modernity.
Views from the 400 rooms and suites either overlook the sunlit atrium courtyard or have balconies that open out to sweeping panoramas of the city skyline, river promenade or sea. The Asia Spa offers exceptional massages and lying around the infinity pool is a very convincing way to relax.
The hotel has many dining experiences to choose from, including fabulous dim sum at Jade, Town Restaurant – which has a great kids menu or for something more formal, The Lighthouse has breathtaking views and an exceptional Italian menu.
The Fullerton Hotel has preserved the splendor, dignity and architectural heritage of the edifice but it’s the progressive spirit of the hotel that has made it blossom into an icon of hospitality.
