I had a rare chance to prod around the Singapore historical Fullerton Hotel’s Presidential Suite located on the 2nd floor. Occupying a grand total of 2,142 square feet (normal hotel rooms are a pale 323-334 square feet), it has all the furnishings worthy of its guests (for which i was informed on a no-named basis, statesmen and dignitaries) with its white marbled flooring, private elevator, Baby Grand piano, two intricately carved solid wood chairs with inlaid mother-of-pearl, private study and bathrooms complete with Bulgari bathroom amenities. A night's stay at this Presidential Suite costs a grand S$6,888.
The Presidential Suite offers a panoramic view of the Singapore city. The detail-oriented comforts of the room, boasting a bedside master control system for the lights, curtains, electronics and butler service — make it hard to muster up the energy to leave and explore the surroundings.
The delightful bedroom guarantees exceptional tranquility with its signature king-size bed topped with cushiony duvets and mounds of pillows. The impressive living area with armchairs and custom upholstered sofas, antique table with reading light and rare antiquities provide exclusive and intimate surroundings both for meetings and leisure.
Built in 1928, The Fullerton Hotel isn’t just a luxurious six-star property – it’s also a historical landmark with a rich past. Back in the day it was centre of Singapore’s commercial, social and official life with the Post Office, the Exchange, the Singapore Club, the Marine Department and the Import and Export Department all calling the building home. These days, with a $400 million renovation in 2001 later, it’s now a 400-room luxury hotel. The Fullerton Hotel have kept the building as close to its original condition as possible, with its Palladian architecture continuing to dominate the city’s skyline. The rooms retain the building’s natural charm and distinctive character and with views out over Marina Bay, making there no better place to be.
The Presidential Suite at the Fullerton Hotel provides a true one-of-a-kind luxury experience. It was really such a rare chance for many to have a peak at the presidential suite of one of the most prestigious hotels in Singapore!
