The Fullerton Hotel came into being in 1928, and it boasts of having hosted some of the most prestigious occupants- The Singapore Club, The Chamber of Commerce, The Economic Development Board, The Ministry of Finance, The General Post Office, and The Japanese Army during World War II.

Its exquisite design of Doric columns and Palladian architecture is one of a kind, which is reminiscent of the original concepts of the Venetian architect, Andrea Palladio to anyone with an intrigue for Renaissance European architecture. 

To call The Fullerton Hotel luxurious would be a hell of an understatement! Located on the edge of the Singapore River, it has a colossal catalogue of 400 rooms with a towering atrium which makes for most of the layout of the hotel.

The rooms are well equipped with the most modern technology which serves extremely well to tourists.

Moreover, people have the option of choosing between two views: the magnificent view of the city or the humongous 25-meter infinity pool on the rooftop.

It is in the vicinity of some of the finest arts and entertainment areas in the city like The Marina Bay, The National Gallery, and The Asian Civilisation Museum.

Featuring loaded hampers and succulent traditional roasted turkey, The Fullerton Hotel celebrations are in full swing. Keeping an eye out for a yule cake, we found the hotel’s got five of them. We highly recommend their Fullerton Signature Black Forest Yule Cake with a sinfully rich Valrhona Guanaja mousse, Morello cherry compote and dark chocolate ganache with chocolate sponge. They also have a Teh Tarik Yule Log Cake, Mango Sago Pomelo Yule Log Cake, Coconut Calamansi Yule Log Cake and Ondeh Ondeh Lamington Yule Log Cake with a Gula Menaka mousse, coconut creme and shredded coconut in a pandan chiffon cake.

The Fullerton Spa is a hidden oasis just down a level from the pool complex at Fullerton Hotel Singapore. Awarded Winner of Luxury Business Spa Asia in 2019 by World Luxury Spa Awards, this is true luxury inner city spa and it’s the little details that make this experience standout.

On arrival, I am served an eco-friendly carton of Alkaline Water to ensure I am sufficiently hydrated pre-treatment. My therapist then discusses the type of massage I want (I chose Intensive Muscle Release) and explains the different types of oils on offer. The oil I selected was an exotic combination of rosemary (easing pain and tension), lavender (relaxation), ginger (anti-inflammatory) and pepper (toxin reducing) – not a combination I had come across before but it sounded incredible and I was eager to try it.

Not passing a single soul, we move down to the therapy room and I get changed for the treatment. The treatment begins with the all-important and indulgent foot cleanse, the warm soothing water inducing immediate relaxation, allowing my mind to unwind. I then move onto the welcoming massage table, firm but comfortable and adorned with thick, luxurious towels. It has the added special touch of being heated (a must for me as I am too often cold in treatment rooms) and it’s not long before I am in state of pure bliss.

My therapist, who has been working there for six years, adeptly and expertly works her way around my body using Swedish and cross muscle fibre techniques, along with stretching and draining that effectively removes any pain and tension. It is not often I fall asleep during a deep tissue massage, but somehow I find myself dozing off – the combination of techniques, oils and pressure, along with the calming ambience is providing the ultimate relaxation experience.

When the treatment comes to an end, I feel restored, regenerated and deeply relaxed. I indulge a little further by using the sauna and steam room facilities to finish this luxurious, pampering afternoon. An all-important opportunity to get some “me time” away from the stresses of family, work and life in general.

A final point to note, I found the treatments here extremely well-priced given the quality on offer, with 60 minute treatments under $200 and many express treatments under $100, it is definitely 5 star spa luxury at an appealing price point.
