The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore
- Room Type : Deluxe Room
- Stay Nights : 7 nights
- Stay Num : 3 people
I chose "The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore" because I like the scenery that I could overlook Marina Bay Sands from the room. Also I have stayed at the Fullerton hotel before, I like their customer service and all the staff is very polite and kind. As we are going to have wedding ceremony in this hotel, I thought it would be more convenient to stay before and after the date. The location is convenient as it's just few minutes to Merlion Park, Clarke Quay and Chinatown are not too far.
Check it out the entrance and reception
Hotel exterior (Guest room side)
The main entrance was made by stone, it seems massive building.
As I entered the door, there is a impressive chandelier on the ceiling. And the restaurant "Clifford Pier"is in the back. Since the front desk is at another tower, I walked to guest room building.
There was a restaurant "Landing Point" on the way to the next building. The corridor from the main entrance to the guest room looked quite new and clean. Its decoration is very beautiful.
The front desk is modern and sophisticated.
The front desk is not so big, I thought it is good to focus the guest service individually .
The ceiling at this area is so high , and it is with beautiful glass wall.
There is a concierge desk next to reception.
Elevator hall at ground floor
There was a chair at waiting area in the elevator hall.

Entering the room, there was a bathroom on the right and a closet on the left.
We booked the room with reasonable price, but the room looked quite spacious as the window and the bathroom is large and it's with glass and mirror wall.
There is still enough space even there is some big and gorgeous furniture such as desk and chair, sofa set and king size bed.
The design of interior is just simple and modern with calm feeling.
We slept on the same including our kids, but it is still comfortable without feeling narrow.
There was a message card for our wedding from the Japanese staff along with the stuffed toys on the bed. It was nice surprise!!
There was a TV set opposite the bed.
A desk and a chair are beside the television.
There are a table and two sofa at balcony side. On the table, wine and fruit were prepared for wedding guest.
There is balcony with small table and chair.
You will see the custom house in front, also restaurants, cafe, bars and fountain.
View from balcony
From the Bayview room, you can see Marina Bay Sands. We stayed at city view room, we saw beautiful skyscraper in the office town.
Probably there are high-rise houses, the lights were bright whole night. The night view was also beautiful.
Bathtub and shower space are separate in the bathroom.
The bathroom is visible from the bedroom because of glass wall. the blind can be closed.
There was a fixed rain shower and a hand shower. The water pressure was ok. In the shower room, BOTTEGA VENETA bland's shampoo, conditioner and body soap were prepared. . I used it everyday, but my hair did not become rough and there was no problem. I liked it, but I think the fragrance is strong.
Bathtub is large enough for guy to stretch their leg. A bath salt is prepared. The water faucet is so hard to open and the water pressure is weak, it took a while to fill the hot water in the big bathtub.
You can watch TV while taking bath.
In the amenity box there were toothbrushes, combs, hair rubber, cotton, sanitary bags, swabs, razors with shaving foam.
There was a hair dryer under the sink.
Closet and Safety Box
On the left side of the room there was a spacious closet.
Inside the closet, there are a bathrobe (another one is a bathroom), hangers, tie hanger, an iron, an ironing board, a shoe polish, a laundry bag and flashlight.
The safety box is in the TV board cabinet.
It needs to set PIN number. There is a accessories tray in the box.
Mini bar / cafe
At cafe corner, there were electric pots, coffee maker, three flavor of coffee capsules, 2 bottles of water, TWG tea bags (Sencha, Oolong tea, English breakfast and chamomile), hot chocolate and ice backet.
Tea cup sets and glasses are in the drawer under the cafe corner.
In the refrigerator, mini bar has beer, sparkling wine, juice and snacks such as chocolate.

We had breakfast at "La Brasserie" on the ground floor.

Breakfast is buffet style, the menus changes everyday.
They have gluten-free corner for those who has allergies.

There was a roof top bar "Lantern" at 8th floor, next to pool.
From "Lantern" you can enjoy the beautiful views of Marina Bay's waterfront.
In the back of the main entrance, there is a restaurant "Clifford Pier". I also enjoyed afternoon tea.
The restaurant "Landing Point" is on the way to the front desk from the main entrance. Both Clifford Pier and Landing Point have terrace seats and you can see Marina Bay Sands.
Facilities in the hotel
The pool is at rooftop. Getting off the elevator, you will see the square pool just in front of you. There were lots of colorful plants at the pool side which feeling tropical resort. Once we sit down the chair, the staff offered us the bath towels and cold water.
You can order drinks at a bar "lantern". There was a changing room on the back of the elevator, but it was narrow. It seems that the changing room and toilet is shared with the gym. Pool is not quite big but scenery was good. There is no playground for kids and it has relaxed atmosphere especially for adults.
You can see Marina Bay Sands from the poolside.
No one was using the pool since there were lots of people at the bar "Lantern" at night time. As non-hotel guest can enter the bar, it is always crowded every night. We can see the light show of Marina Bay Sands and the night view of skyscrapers is also beautiful.
There is gym, too. It opens 24 hours.
Hotel surroundings environment
Along the riverside, there are many fancy restaurants and cafe bars. Opposite side is office town.
It has a bit of inconveniences such as access from the station.
You can walk to Merlion Park.
Lao Pasa Food Market is the nearby business district
Staff & Customers
Hotel staffs are kind and polite, including front desk, concierge and cleaning staff. Because we stayed for a week, the restaurant staff remembered our faces and served coffee every morning. We didn’t have any inconvenience to communicate in English and any opportunity to speak in Japanese. However we saw one Japanese staff at the front desk when we check- in.
I think that various of customer stayed at this hotel, we saw groups, couples, families with children and businessmen. I did not see a small kids when we stayed.
It takes 1 hour by MRT from the airport. MRT is very convenient to go to everywhere but there is no crosswalk on the road in front of hotel to the nearest Raffles Place station, we needed to use a lift to pass through the commercial building and bypass at Fullerton hotel. I felt somewhat inconvenient if I had a big baggage. Also even if you look at the map, I do not know where the elevator or escalator is. So I think that you will get lost at first. Restaurant and bar around the hotel are on bayside, it looks fashionable and fancy since every store has terrace seats. And I think that the price is a bit expensive compare to other area. Since it is most famous office town in Singapore, the road has been well maintained and we didn’t worry about safety. But you need to cross the road which is difficult to across to go to convenience store. There is the Lao Pasa Market (Hawker Center) in walking distance. You can also walk to Chinatown and Clarke Quay.

It was really nice to stay at this hotel. We stayed for wedding, a surprise message card (from Japanese staff), wine and fruit were prepared in our room. Also, even for small kids, they prepared amenities for them. I felt that all the staff were carefully serviced even though I could not speak English and I did not feel inconvenience. It is worth that we could enjoy beautiful skyscraper from the city view room and Marina Bay Sands view from the pool side. I think this hotel is the best to see the view in Singapore. It seems that many guests expense much inside the hotel because access to outside convenience store is not very good. But considering hotel staff, location, view, room and facilities, I think that it is worth the price .
