12 Reasons Why The Fullerton Hotel Makes For a Great Staycation + GIVEAWAY!

Media Review

I have passed through its regal-looking lobby once and the one thing The Fullerton Hotel struck me was how different its interior was compared to the usual hotel chains. Clearly being conferred the title of a national monument is already testament to its splendid architecture and imposing presence but how does the building rate in terms of a staycation?

But given that the 5-star hotel is housed in a Singapore icon, I guess it should come as no surprise that a staycation at The Fullerton Hotel ranked as one of our best staycations yet. And with Mother's Day coming up, here are the reasons - all 12 of them - why the hotel makes for a great staycation choice with the family.

1. Rich Heritage

If you wish to stay in a five-star hotel in Singapore that boasts rich history, look no further than The Fullerton Hotel. This grand Neoclassical building situated at the mouth of the Singapore River was once Singapore’s General Post Office, and housed several government departments, where some of Singapore’s pioneer leaders began their careers. It has also been witness to several historic events during the Japanese Occupation and the post-war period.

On 7 December 2015, the National Heritage Board (NHB) gazetted the Building as Singapore’s 71st National Monument, concluding a series of gazettes in celebration of Singapore’s Golden Jubilee.

Stepping into the atrium of The Fullerton Hotel is an experience in itself. The high ceilings, gigantic pillars and beams all contribute to the majestic aura that the building exudes.

For a building that has been featured so significantly in the history of Singapore, I would say that the Fullerton Building – with its beautiful Palladian facade – is a landmark that even locals have to step inside at least once in their lifetime.

2. Lavish & Comfortable Rooms

Of course, the acid test when it comes to any staycation involving the monkies will be the hotel's guest rooms. So I guess the sight of them zooming right onto the comfy bed (and refusing to get up) upon entering spoke volumes then.

We stayed in the Palladian Suite, a one-bedroom suite with an adjoining spacious living area.

From the soft vanilla coloured walls to freshly-pressed sheets, everything was undeniably plush.

All rooms come with a fully stocked mini-bar, coffee and tea making facilities, fresh fruits, complimentary WiFi, and a bathroom with separate bathtub and shower room. Oh and speaking of the bathroom, it too boasts a stair stepper machine... because the buffets at the hotel are too good to resist, I presume.

And yes, even luxurious Bottega Veneta bath amenities!

But the clincher for me had got to be the magnificent view that our suite was blessed with.

Seriously, I can just laze in bed and soak in the view ALL DAY. 

Not that the monkies will let me though.

3. Free 'handy' Smartphone Usage

Each room also comes equipped with a smartphone which is free to use for guests during the duration of their stay.

No games in this smartphone nicknamed 'handy' though. Rather, the phone comes pre-loaded with chock-ful of helpful articles on food, shopping, and attractions in Singapore. And the best part is guests are able to take it out of the hotel as well as it comes with unlimited mobile internet, unlimited local and overseas (selected destinations) calls - all FREE! Nice.

4. Wonder Full Light Show

Yet another reason to stay in a room at Fullerton Hotel with a view facing Marina Bay - be rewarded with this spectacular sight come nightfall.

Billed as Southeast Asia’s largest light and water show, Wonder Full at Marina Bay Sands is a stunning showpiece of visual effects crafted with interweaving lasers, searchlights, LEDs, video projectors and giant streaming water screens.

Perfomances are scheduled nightly at the following times: Sunday to Thursday at 8pm and 9:30pm; 
Friday & Saturday at 8pm, 9:30pm and 11pm.

5. Kids Are Well Taken Care Of

At Fullerton Hotel, kids are made to feel like kings and queens, thanks to the personal attention and gifts lavished upon them during the stay.

'Our Fullerton Adventure' colouring books are provided to all little guests but these are not just ordinary colouring books - kids will be able to learn more about Fullerton Hotel and its surroundings through solving puzzles and colouring.

But the icing on the cake for the monkies has got to be these passes.

Yes, ice cream passes. And ONLY kids are eligible for these passes, as the wifey and I sadly found out. The passes allowed them to redeem a scoop of ice cream daily at Town Restaurant. Well technically it is only one scoop per day but the staff are more than happy to oblige any kids who fancy more than one scoop. How's that for sweet service!

6. Fullerton Spa Experience

Now who doesn't love a spa experience - especially when it allows parents to relax and spend a little time away from the kids?

And the treatments at The Fullerton Spa definitely will not disappoint. Score plenty of brownie points with the missus when you pack her off to the Spa for its signature 60-minute Ultimate Aromatherapy Experience, which is included in the Mother’s Day Stay, Spa and Dine promotion package by the way. More details of the package at the end of the post but let's just say the massage experience will have the wifey skipping happily back to the room.

7. Club Lounge Access

If you need another reason to book the Mother’s Day Stay, Spa and Dine package at The Fullerton Hotel, how about this?

Privileged access to the hotel’s executive lounge, The Straits Club!

Privileges of The Straits Club include round-the-clock personalised service, in-room registration, a complimentary daily Champagne breakfast, afternoon tea, evening canapés and cocktails in a dedicated lounge with a vintage Peranakan decor featuring Straits Chinese artefacts.

Little wonder the monkies were always glancing at their watches to keep track of the next chomping session at The Straits Club!

8. Visit The Fullerton Heritage Gallery

The Fullerton Heritage Gallery showcases the rich heritage and history of the precinct.

The 800-square foot gallery features displays that include photographs, maps, stamps and philatelic materials that date back to 1932. Some of the highlights include two red pillar post boxes, which found its way to the streets of Singapore in 1873 during the British Colonial rule, and the return of the Foundation Stone laid by the first President of Singapore, Mr Yusof bin Ishak.

The gallery’s opening hours are from 9am to 10pm daily, and admission is FREE.

9. Go on a FREE Fullerton Heritage Tour

If you wish to find out more about the rich history of The Fullerton Building and its surrounding areas, I highly recommend signing up for one of the two Fullerton Heritage Tours that the hotel conducts - both of which are FREE.

For those wanting to know more the building's past, go for THE FULLERTON MONUMENT TOUR where a guide took us back in time to 1928 when the story of the Fullerton Building first began. As “Mile Zero”, from which all of Singapore was measured, the historical building had famously hosted the General Post Office – known then as the “Most Important Post Office in the East.”

Not only did the monkies learnt more about the history and architecture of the building, the tour also gave us exclusive access to preserved areas within the hotel... with our final stop being the roof of the building, where a lighthouse used to stand.

Needless to say, the view from the top was definitely the highlight of the 1-hour guided tour.

Unfortunately, we did not had time to join the other tour, A MARITIME JOURNEY TOUR. This tour brings visitors around the hotel's premises, where they will be told stories of how the forefathers of Singapore first stepped ashore on Singapore's soil via Clifford Pier.

More details and timings of the tours can be found HERE.

10. Sumptuous Buffet Breakfast at Town Restaurant

Other than comfy rooms ranking number one, buffet breakfasts at hotels probably come up next on the monkies' 'Things an Awesome Hotel should have' list. And in the words of the monkies, the buffet breakfast at The Fullerton Hotel's Town Restaurant is "AWESOME".

I guess it has to due to the large variety of food... and the presence of Japanese Cold Noodles and sushi for the boys.

For Ale though, it was for an entirely different reason. 


All-you-can-drink Yakult. Yes, she's easily contented.

As for me, I am also easily contented when there's comfort food in the form of kaya toasts and kopitiam-style coffee!

11. Have a Splash at the Infinity Pool

Obviously, no staycation is complete without some splashing at the hotel's pool.

On its own, the 25-metre is nothing to shout about. But coupled with overlooking the charming Singapore River set against a backdrop of majestic Doric columns, I have to say this infinity pool clearly makes for a fantastic instagrammable spot.

There isn't any children's pool though, although there is an elevated area right next to the edge of the pool where the jacuzzi jet streams are.

But children's pool or no children's pool, the monkies still managed to clock in more than an hour's worth of play time in the pool!

12. Attractions Galore Around the Hotel

I did not realise it before but it struck me (while I was chillaxing in the pool) that The Fullerton Hotel is located right smack in the middle of numerous family-friendly attractions!

Of course there are the obvious ones - the Merlion just across the road at One Fullerton, Esplanade, Marina Bay Sands, and Boat Quay. But the hotel is also just a 5-minute walk away from Asian Civilisations Museum and a 15-minute walk to National Gallery of Singapore - both of which offer FREE entry to Singaporeans and PRs!

Come night time, the hotel's surrounds also make for a great stroll after dinner... as the monkies will attest to.

I know a mom and a wife who needs a holiday soon- me! :-D Fullerton Hotel holds a special memory for us because this is where we had our honeymoon. We only went for one night though because we couldn't afford more than that :-D But it was really nice to be able to enjoy the splendour and luxury of this famed hotel and to be part of the rich history of Singapore. Hoping to bag this staycation so we can take the kids this time and make more happy memories together.

Anonymous said...

I hope to win this staycation for my mother. She looks after my kids for me without any words of complaint even when they misbehave. She cooks delicious and nutritious food for all of us and we can come home to have yummy home-cooked food. Even when my kids are sick, she would stand in to help us. Hope to win this for her to take a break!


zinconut said...

My mum has never had a staycation before as she thinks it's a waste to pay and stay in Singapore.
This would be a good chance for her to experience a Singapore hotel + enjoy the vicinity.

Edna C said...

Hope to win this staycation for my mum and me. We are both mothers and we deserve a good break this mother's day from our busy routine.

Sandra Wee said...

The useful gift to the best mother in the world: Happy Mother’s Day! You deserve all the love, care and support that you’ve lovingly given every day of my life. Throughout my childhood years, you’ve always been by my side. I couldn’t have had a better mother to look up to. All you’ve done for me in my life turned in to the sweetest fondue of me. Hope to win this Staycation to celebrate with my mum.

Gladys Tan said...

I wish to win a staycation for my sister and I to stay with my mum. If I really win, I am sure she will enjoy the stay and the sumptuous breakfast. We can take a stroll along Singapore river and even take the river cruise. It will be a memorable one for us.

ariel.tai said...

I wish to win this stay-cation for my mom or my children's grandma because she is the main caregiver of my 3 kids. She has tirelessly taken care of them, sacrificing much of her personal and free time to look after them. Thus for this Mother's Day, I really want to appreciate her for all that she has done. And also hope she can take some time off to pamper herself, to stay in this luxurious hotel, to rejuvenate and to recharge :)

kelynn thng said...

Will like to have a special mother's cum grandma day in Singapore this year as it's my mum 60th birthday.It's a great opportunity to allows my mum recall those days and tell my girl more on Fullerton history. It will definitely be a good bonding session.

Evelyn Hu said...

I would live to win a staycation for my mother in law. She work so hard to raise her kids and manage the household her entire life. Now she offers to take care of my kids too. She deserves a break, a treat especially since mother's day is approaching. It would be a perfect gift for her to enjoy a laid back stay within sg!

Alia Sam said...

I would like to win this staycation for my super mom. Shes 60 and yet she's there to look after my 2 kids. One of my kids is a special need child who is down syndrome. She has been a great caregiver who never complains and i believe that she deserves this wonderful break!

Sharon Wong said...

I would like to win this for my mum who has selflessly given herself to our family. She gave up her career to help my bro and I take care of our children so that we could have a peace of mind while working.

Lu Siu Ching said...

I wish to win this to reward my mum for her endless love towards my family;taking care of my new born for the past 3months.

I'll like to win a staycation for me & my mom. For my mom, since well, she's my fabulous mom. And for myself, since I have 2 kids so I qualify to celebrate Mothers' day and hoping to win a birthday present for myself as it's my birthday today =)

Coreen Siah said...

I would like to win this to pamper myself to celebrate my third round of motherhood. Had not taken any break since the arrival of my boy 5 months ago.

Hui Min said...

I would really like to win this for my mom, she's turning 70 this year and has never had a staycation in Singapore as she finds it a waste of money. Though we don't share a particularly close bond when I was growing up as she worked most of her life, I know she has contributed a lot to the family along with my dad. Without them, I would never have the chance to study overseas and earn my degree. Hoping to win this so that my parents will be able to enjoy some time together. Thank you so much for giving this away, it's a wonderful gift for anyone who gets it..

koh vivien said...

As a mother, I would really hope to win this staycation for my family! I would love to see the surprise look my 2 kids have if they were to stay at a hotel with so many facilities and other activities to keep them busy! My kids have no travel or staycation experiences so this would be a great experience for them! For the past 2 weeks I am unable to spend much time with them due to some medical issue n would love to take this chance to bond with them.... I think it's a good break for me too as I work 24hrs 7 times a week ( cos I'm a stay home mother)! ��

Our Biggest Joy said...

I would like to win this staycation for my family. Me and husband got married in 2009 and we missed our honeymoon as my mum had to go for a major heart bypass few mth before our wedding. This staycation will be a meaningful one for my mum to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. And of course an eye opener for my girls learning and exploring the historical structures.
And not forgeting a wonderful birthday surprise for my husband. And yes.. i need my me-time and indulge in the spa.

YongJ said...

I would love to win this giveaway for my parents, specifically my Mum who has always been so busy with work in the day yet this buzz doesnt stop even when she arrived home. She prepares meals at home every single day because she strongly believes in feeding us with healthy food. She takes care of the family so well that she sometimes forgets to take enough care of herself. I am sure this staycation will rejuvenate her without being too far away from her dear ones.

. said...

I hope to win this giveaway for my parents who always share about the history of Singapore River with my siblings and I whenever we are within that area. With age comes the inconvenience in travelling out of Singapore for even a few days. The most feasible option to rejuvenate will always be a staycation and nothing could beat Fullerton Hotel - a home away from home where we passed by and talked about ever so often but haven't got a chance to spend a night or two in it, to reminisce about the good old days.

Pink Piglet said...

Hope to win this staycation to celebrate mothers' day & her 60th birthday

angelia ng said...

I would really love to win this staycation for my mum! She has been taking such great care of us and I know that this staycation will be an amazing one for her! She gave up the most important things in her life so that I could take on the most important things in mine. Mom, thanks for all the sacrifices you have made. Best friends come and go, boyfriends and girlfriends love and move on, bosses hire and fire but the only person present through it all is a mother. Thanks for always being there for me. Whenever I am in trouble I ask my heart ‘What should I do?’ Every single time it replies ‘Do what your mother would tell you to’. Mom, thanks for being my guiding light.Thanks for everything mom. This staycation will be the perfect way to thank you because I know you have been wanting to go for a staycation, to experience that luxurious hotel and spa experience and for a chance to get the whole family together in one place! =)

natty said...

I would like to win a stay because I think after being mum for the last 4 years, it's time I rewarded myself even if the husband has forgotten due to selective memory. Heh. More importantly, I think it'd be nice to invite my mum along for staycation and do some mother-daughter, grandma-grandkids bonding.

Mother is one of the greatest gift on earth! Mothers' day is a special celebration for me as I was born on Mothers' day. I am a blessing to my mum who is one of my greatest blessing! I am thankful for a great, generous and loving mother who shown me what unconditional love is. Now I am blessed with three beautiful kids and striving to be a great mother to my kids! I wish to win this special staycation to spend it with my grandmother, my mother and my children! It is indeed a blessing to be able to celebrate this special day with four generations! It will be a super super special birthday present to me too! Thank you cheekiemonkies!

I'm a working mother of 3 young kids. I need a break. And now I'm off for another milking session.

DK said...

I would love to bring my mum and family to this fabulous hotel. My mum, being a thrifty one, would never think of spending money on food or hotel stay for herself. She eats less, spends less so that my siblings and I could enjoy. It would be a wonderful present to her if I could win this staycation.
Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

Kaye Limlingan said...

Me me me! Pick me! Would love to take my family in a wonderful staycation before we leave SG. We lived here for almost 8yrs but sadly we need to go coz my hubby's work got him relocated. Staying in iconic and historical Fullerton Hotel will be a great addition to our SG scrapbook.

Cheryl May said...

What a treat - your family is so blessed! We got married at the Fullerton almost exactly five years ago and since then, not a single hotel room we've stayed in can compare. It would be wonderful to relive our memories there and better still, with our little one in tow. Swimming and icecream are his absolute two favorite things :)

WZ Feng said...

I want to win this as I does not have the chance to have a staycation with my mother before. I want this year to be an memorable mothers' day for her! Thanks cheekiemonkies!

Super awesome giveaway!!

I hope to win this for myself as i always know fullenton is "high end" and it's too expensive for me to stay when Myself have a family with 2 boys and financial are tight that I can only dreamt of for a staycation. My hubby also feel wasted of money to have a staycation when we have our own home. I really hope I have a chance to experience this wonderful queen and king feeling staycation with my kids there while I can have a relax spa! May I be the lucky one? Thank you!

My mom is a scrimps and saves on herself but always gives us the best. Every year for mother's day, she will ask us not to buy her anything, just make her a card and have a simple dinner. I really hope that this year, I can give her a special mother's day! Thank you!

Sheila Yeo said...

I would love to win the staycation for my mum. She deserves a well-deserved break!

I would like to win because it is such a privilege to stay in such an historically iconic building like the Fullerton. It's hospitality and service is outstanding, and it will be a very memorable place for us to celebrate our engagement anniversary!!!

Carolyn Lim said...

I would like to win this staycation for my mum, sis and myself cos it's a golden opportunity to spend some personal time with my mum and sis, without the noisy kids.

My mum used to bring us to Clifford pier near Neptune Theatre to watch the fireworks when we were young. Sometime she would bring us for stroll at the Merlion and old Satay Club. Now it's the time for reminiscing the good day together.

Carol b. said...

It'll be our 20th wedding anniversary on 18th May and we are not able to go away because it's exam time for the kids. It would be really nice to have a Staycation at The Fullerton because it's such a beautiful hotel and the historical building makes it even more romantic.

As a homemaker, I work 24 hours every day, no sick leave, paid leave, salary and etc. I have to treat 24 hours to 36 hours to use if I lack of time. The gain as a homemaker are have quality bonding time with them on their every milestones; kids are happy and healthy. When they are able to enjoy their 3 meals at home with my accompany is the cherish moment for us. Nothing beat the best is when they need me, I will be around to guide them. Although they did comment especially during school holiday, lot of their classmate travel overseas, take flight and etc.... I told them in Singapore, a lot of free local attraction await for us to explore and learn. I wish I can be the lucky one to win this staycastion for my family to have a break. Thank you.

Hi! I will be the happiest Mommy on Earth if i will be picked the winner of a Free Stay at Fullerton Hotel for the below reasons:

1. This is my first time to spend Mother's Day here in Singapore as my family and I have just relocated from Dubai to "The Little Red Dot" last November 2015
2. My Birthday and my Husband and I's 5th Wedding Anniversary this Month yey!
3. I have never seen the inner beauty and heritage of the great Fullerton Hotel, therefore, would be a tremendous and spectacular experience to spend a day and night in this marvelous place here in Singapore while celebrating the above mentioned events right?

Thank you so much and wishing you all the best :)

Geraldine Low said...

There is no simpler wish but to win this for my mum whom I think totally deserves a break from her medical checkups and chemo sessions. It is not an easy period for our family and definitely a harder time for her so believe this would give us a chance to have more quality time as a family while we still have the chance.

Evon Pokka said...

Being a SAHM to a pair of twins is one of the most important and fulfilling things in my life, but as the little girls grow, there are days when we get stuck in a runt and just need to get out and refresh. A staycation would be perfect, for them and for myself because happy babies = happy mummy = happy everybody :)

Jolene Ge said...

I would like to win this staycation for my family. As husband would soon be relocated and based in America for the next 2 years while the kids and me would remain in Singapore, I would like to take this chance to spend some quality family time (in a luscious style that we have never gotten the chance to).

J said...

I wish to win this for myself as it's my first Mother's day and I hope to reward myself for persisting in this tough journey of breastfeeding my baby for 6 months!

Janelle said...

I would love to revisit this building and rediscover all the changes made after all these years. Many years ago, I went to Fullerton building everyday. Don't be mistaken, I'm not so rich as to stay there everyday. Instead I'm working at Fullerton before it was converted to Fullerton Hotel. Really miss the wonderful memories while working there and hope to win the free stay of the hotel to add on to the previous memories.

I'd loveee to win it for myself =)
Sounds so selfish but after what i went through i tought I deserve some pampering =)
I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl 6 months ago, now Im a full time mom. And recently my dear husband got hospitalised for a week. Followed by another week of bedresting. So im alone taking care of sick hubby, cooking his fave food just to get him eat a bit brings me joy!! Not to mention my baby is starting solids and taking care of our homes.
Please please let me take a breather by winning this giveaway!!! Pretty please =)

I would really want to win this opportunity to step into such a luxurious hotel with my mummy, daddy and brother. It will be such a nice staycation, just spending some quality time with each other and exploring the vast surroundings amongst us. There's so much to explore within that area, and we will be hunting for the best spots to chill and just enjoy life.

Love to win this fantastic staycation for my mummy & myself just the two of us enjoying mother and daughter time together like what we used to do when I was little! I used to cosleep with my parents when i was a small girl but ever since I had my own space, we never do this anymore, we still go shopping together though :) And now the older I get and the older my parents get, the more I fear of losing them although I understand this day will come eventually so as much as possible, I hope to spend quality and memorable times with them. This will definitely be one good opportunity to spend time together!

My mum always took great care of us and while we have occasionally showered her with love, its always never enough to express our love and appreciation for her. Hopefully, we can win this staycation and make her and dad happy by enjoying a stay at the hotel without the grandkids fighting for her attention! So thanks as always, Cheekiemonkies!!

I like to win this for my mum and myself. If I do win, it will be bonding time for 3 generations - my mum, me and my children. My mum used to baby sit my children when they were younger, now that I am looking after them on my own, they had less opportunities with wach other. I hope that we all can catch up over this Mother's Day and have a good time together.

I hope to enjoy this staycation with my mum! After i become a mummy myself, i truly understand the struggles and dilemmas a mum will face when bringing up our kids where we need to make decisions that seems h'cruel' to our kids but we know it's for their good. I resented my mum at times during my childhood years.. but when i look back now, i truly understand why she made those decisions. I hope to make use of this staycation to bond with her and family.

I would love to win a staycation package for my mom because she is a busy working lady by day and a busy housewife by night. She rarely have the time to indulge in any sumptuous dining or pampering treat yet she would find time to cook homecooked dinner daily just for us to have healthier dishes. Even though we can see the tiredness in her face, she never once grumble or complain. She definitely deserve to be my one and only superwoman because without her I am nothing. Hope to win this luxurious staycation for her to enjoy entirely without worrying of anything!

Jenny Ong said...

I would love to win this staycation package for my mother as she has always been a thrifty lady whom took good care of us and now my children. Although she was not educated and always busy with housework, cooking for us and ensuring we were well taken care of without complains, she had not had a staycation in such a luxurious hotel. Neither do I. :)

All mothers are great and wonderful I believe. Nonetheless, she will always be the one and only wonderwoman in my life. Hope that we could win this great staycation for her.

Being a mum, she has been always put us and our dad first, never herself. Her constant care, concerns and worries of us are always surround her. She is always there ready to support us emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Even being tired and sick, she will still be there full force. To her, children will always be children, no matter how old we are..and she will always think of us, and not for herself. Hence, it's time for us to let her relax, and totally soak in pampering where she can enjoy and for once forget about all the worries she has for us. And I believe the Fullerton hotel stay cation will give her a once a lifetime beautiful memory of being a woman once again..not a mother or wife.. but a woman who deserve it. :)

Hi, chances are slim but I would still like to win this staycation for me and my family.
I am a stay at home mum with two kids, and my way of saving money is to cook for
my family........I hope to take this chance to relax and not think about household chores
Away from home in a beautiful hotel is my only method.....;)
