Singapore – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine
The newly opened Fullerton Bay Hotel is already becoming known for its unsurpassed views of the city skyline and Marina Bay. Located on the top three levels of the hotel, five ethnic-themed suites and the Presidential Suite offer guests completely unobstructed vistas. These six exclusive suites with floor-to-ceiling windows are a tribute to the hotel’s historical location and reaffirm its dedication to uphold Singapore’s rich heritage and diverse culture.
The hotel’s five suites are themed after the Chinese, Malay, Indian, Peranakan and Colonial cultures all very present in Singapore and are named after prolific ex-Governors of the Straits Settlements – Sir Hugh Clifford Sir Shenton Thomas, Sir William Cleaver Francis Robinson, Sir John Anderson and Major General Sir William Orfeur Cavenagh. Meanwhile, The Presidential Suite is a combination of the ethnic cultures, colonial influences and cosmopolitan qualities of present day Singapore – a vibrant fusion of East, West, past and present.
Each of the stunning suites is adorned with unique artwork and antiques, signature fabrics and decorative items that embody their distinctive themes alongside contemporary pieces.
“We hope travellers will enjoy the subtle historical and cultural references woven discreetly into the modernity of the suites’ design,” commented a spokesperson for LCL Architects, the Hong Kong-based designers who are responsible for all guestrooms in The Fullerton Bay Hotel. “The core design elements of the suites are predominant while colour, artworks, feature rugs, soft furnishings and signature cultural items distinguish each suite’s unique theme. The suites are designed with a palette of finishes, fittings and accessories that create an ambience or vibe that is authentic to the particular ethnic theme.”
At its prime waterfront location at Marina Bay, the chic hotel exudes a classical and elegant atmosphere as it simultaneously encapsulates the heritage and modernity of Singapore.
