The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore

Oct 31, 2014
2014 / October 2014

Arrival/Check-In: Arriving by taxi from Changi Airport, I was immediately greeted by a friendly bellman who asked if I needed any help with my bag. Since I was traveling light with only one bag, I just took it myself to the reception desk. By the time I arrived, it was quite quiet, so in a matter of minutes, I was checked in and directed to my room. Very efficient!

Guest Quarters: The Fullerton Bay Hotel has 100 guestrooms and is situated on the Marina Bay waterfront. As soon as I entered my room, the first thing that attracted my attention was the stunning view of Marina Bay. My room also had a balcony, which was a wonderful feature, particularly at night, because I was able to watch the laser show across the bay and even hear the music that accompanied it. I discovered if I opened the balcony door for some time, the air-conditioning in the room stopped automatically — certainly a great design to help save energy and the environment.

My room was on the fourth floor and quite spacious. A large, flat-screen TV sat in front of my king-sized bed. The bathroom was separated into two areas: One was equipped with a standard showerhead as well as an overhead shower; the other had a large soaking bath with a small built-in TV on the wall so you can enjoy your favorite TV programs while bathing.

In the bedroom, there were enough outlets both by the desk and by the bed, very convenient for charging my computer and my gadgets. Guestrooms include a Nespresso coffee machine, an iPod dock, pillow choices and Bvlgari toiletries. Free WiFi is available in the room and throughout the hotel.

Services/Amenities: The hotel has two restaurants and a rooftop bar. The Landing Point not only has a 40-foot-long bar but also an outdoor area with a waterfront panorama. Breakfast is served for hotel guests at Clifford, and I very much enjoyed the large variety of food provided at breakfast time; the restaurant also serves lunch and dinner. Lantern is a stylish rooftop bar and pool, an excellent place to hang out at night and enjoy Champagne while looking at the spectacular view over the bay. Then comes my favorite place in a hotel — the fitness center. It is not a big facility, but it has several advanced Technogym machines.

The Experience: I enjoyed staying at The Fullerton Bay Hotel. Not only is it conveniently located (saving me a lot of time getting to business meetings), but also the staff was friendly and helpful, which made my stay great.
