SINGAPORE’S NEWEST LUXURY DESIGN HOTEL OPENS ITS DOORS ON 08 JULY 2010
The Fullerton Heritage Singapore is delighted to announce the much anticipated opening of Marina Bay’s first and only waterfront hotel, The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore on 08 July 2010.
Comprising 100 rooms, five individually-themed suites and a luxurious Presidential Suite, each with magnificent marina views, balconies and sundecks, the hotel offers luxury bespoke design elements to travellers visiting Singapore’s latest new district.
LCL Architects, the group behind the hotel’s inspiring glass facade, is also responsible for the creation of the luxury hotel rooms, whilst the arrival experience and restaurants are the latest projects by design wunderkind, Andre Fu.
Guests will enter the hotel through a 17-metre wide lobby at the historic Clifford Pier, an important heritage site which saw the arrival of many of Singapore’s early settlers. The hotel's glamorous and exquisite interior designs are richly steeped in Singapore’s vibrant history with Fu using vintage nautical maps and commissioned contemporary art that reflect the celebration of heritage and modernity in the Lion City.
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 natural palette throughout. This classical look is combined with state-of-the-art in-room technology to ensure that the hotel’s modern travellers are never out of touch.
Each of the hotel’s six suites, including the Presidential Suite, are individually themed to reflect the wealth of cultures in Singapore’s cosmopolitan population, including Chinese, Malay, Indian, Peranakan and Colonial and are situated on the upper three storeys of the hotel, in prime-angled positions facing the stunning views of Marina Bay waterfront. Named after the ex-Governors of the Straits Settlement (Sir Hugh Clifford, Sir Shenton Thomas, Sir William Cleaver Francis Robinson, Sir John Anderson and Major General Sir William Orfeur Cavenagh), each will be adorned with bespoke artwork and antiques alongside contemporary pieces that embody the spirit unique to the suite’s theme.
The hotel’s trio of culinary experiences, designed by Andre Fu, include the signature restaurant Clifford, The Landing Point and Lantern.
Lantern is a stylish rooftop bar, surrounding the hotel’s 25-metre rooftop swimming pool, where guests can relish delectable gourmet snacks and tantalising grilled meats, accompanied with fine champagnes, signature cocktails, wines and beverages whilst watching the world go by with panoramic views of the Marina Bay waterfront and the world-famous Singapore skyline. This urban oasis is the perfect location for an idyllic afternoon respite, take an invigorating swim in the pool while enjoying the tranquil waterfront sea breeze or the sultry cocktails conjured by the bar’s mixologist. View the beautiful sunset at Lantern with your partner or friends as it transforms into a dazzling rooftop bar illuminated by glittering lights, ideal for a romantic tête-à-tête, glamorous cocktail parties or fashion launches.
Set amidst the resplendent skyline of the Marina Bay waterfront, Clifford, the modern brasserie is illuminated by splendid 10-metre high floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the sparkling waters of the bay, and guests are greeted by an opulent 800-bottle fine wine library meticulously handpicked from all over the world. Seated adjacent to Clifford Pier and named after this historical landmark upon which the first immigrants landed in Singapore, Clifford retains the spirit of the seafarers as it embodies waterfront destination dining. Clifford is furnished with layers of theatrical salons and offers breathtaking views of Marina Bay be it from the private dining room, main dining section that seats up to 76, or the stylish al fresco dining terrace. One of three dining destinations at the hotel, Clifford celebrates discreet and attentive service with its clever play of vintage furnishings in warm grey, burnt orange and dark aubergine set against the towering ivory French panelling and masculine herringbone oak floors. From influential business lunches to idyllic afternoon teas, or romantic dinners under the stars, Clifford sets to redefine destination dining by the bay with personalized service.
Elegantly positioned alongside an impressive indoor promenade paved in bespoke marble mosaics, The Landing Point is the gourmand’s lounge du jour. Designed in hues of gold; indulge in sensuous cocktails as guests engage in the waterfront panorama. With a majestic 13-metre long bar and spacious outdoor terrace, The Landing Point is designed to captivate the sophisticated chic.
