Fullerton Bay Hotel
Part of the waterfront development that includes sister property Fullerton Hotel and dining hub One Fullerton, the Fullerton Bay Hotel opened in 2010 and touts itself as the only hotel located on the Marina Bay waterfront. Unlike its sister hotel, Fullerton Bay’s architecture skews heavily modernist, typified by the glass facade, a cylindrical lobby chandelier more than 15 feet in diameter, and finishes in gray, burnt orange, and eggplant. Contemporary Asian art, commissioned by the hotel, appears throughout the public areas. Vintage maps around the building give a hint of the area’s nautical importance. The location places the hotel on the edge of the financial district, across the water from the tri-towered Marina Bay Sands, and between the heritage buildings of Clifford Pier and Customs House (the entry point for many of the city’s early settlers). Accommodations are pleasingly roomy, starting at 540 square feet, each with a balcony. The rooftop pool offers broad views of the bay.

Neighborhood Vibe
Given its proximity to the Fullerton Hotel—a few minutes away by foot—the Fullerton Bay is close to the same sites as its sister property. The visually striking ArtScience Museum, designed by Moshe Safdie to resemble an open lotus, and the nearby Louis Vuitton store on a floating island are an easy walk around the bay. Out the back of the hotel, Singapore’s top Spanish restaurant, Catalunya (82 Collyer Quay), serves excellent tapas; its newly-launched late-night series (Wednesday, Friday, Saturday) is rambunctious, but in a good way.
Need to Know
Rooms: 94 rooms, 6 suites. From $440.
Check-in: 2 p.m.; check-out: noon.
Dining options:To get a sense of the culinary influences at the brasserie-style Clifford Pier, set in a 1933 building, just look at the signature dish—homemade duck rillettes. Afternoon tea here is a local take on the luxury-hotel tradition, with sandwiches like bak kwa (grilled pork) jam and hae bee hiam (fried prawns), and drinks such as the addictively sweet, shockingly pink, rose-syrup milk concoction bandung. The Landing Point, with its 30-foot bar and tables overlooking the bay, makes a pretty, and cool, hideout for an evening libation.
Spa and gym details:While there isn’t a spa, the rooftop fitness center is open 24 hours.
Insider Tips
Who's it for: Advertising honchos on expense accounts, fashionistas, globe-trotting CEOs, honeymooners.
Our favorite rooms: The Premier Bay View Rooms come with a Jacuzzi. There are only two (rooms 109 and 118) and they have 12-foot ceilings, a position in the corner of the property, and a whirlpool that looks onto the bay.
Table with a view:Reserve a table nearest the waterfront at Lantern, the rooftop bar that’s undoubtedly one of the city’s most pleasurable places to order a tipple. Signature drinks include the Merlion—tequila, ginger, honey water, lime, and seltzer. Nibble on truffle fries, enjoy your drink, and watch the nightly light show staged across the water at Marina Bay Sands.
A Glamorous Stay on Marina Bay
I always take a deep breath as I enter the Fullerton Bay. The hotel's signature scent, a fresh and alluring mix of white jasmine and ylang ylang with hints of red rose and a musky base note (I know because I'm so obsessed with the fragrance I asked what it was), sets the tone for the entire Fullerton Bay experience.

A gleaming glass box floating in the Marina, the Fullerton Bay is a sleek and sophisticated choice in the heart of modern Singapore. While there are several restaurants in and around the hotel, the jewel in its crown is undoubtedly Lantern: a rooftop bar with views out over the Marina next to the Fullerton Bay's 25 meter infinity pool. Tented in white silk and studded with chandeliers, this is where I bring out of town guests for a memorable "welcome to Singapore" drink.

There is no shortage of diversions around Marina Bay. Shops, restaurants, bars (many of them on rooftops), museums and theaters are all on your doorstep. For amazing local food, head to the hawker center next to the Esplanade (appropriately called “Gluttons Bay”) or, my favorite, Lau Pa Sat at 18 Raffles Quay.

Fancy a dip?
The Fullerton Bay Hotel's rooftop infinity pool is so inviting that I've been tempted to stick my toes in while enjoying a drink at nearby Lantern bar. Unfortunately the pool is reserved for hotel guests. If you are lucky enough to be staying here, grab one of the lounge chairs in the shallow part of the pool. Add a dab of sunscreen, a good book and the gorgeous views and you've got the recipe for a perfectly lazy Singapore afternoon.

Brunch at Clifford
If the occasion calls for an all-you-can-eat champagne brunch, there are plenty to choose from in Singapore. One of my favorites is the elegant Sunday brunch at Clifford Brasserie in the Fullerton Bay Hotel (served from 12:00pm to 3:00pm). All the bases are covered with an appetizer buffet of fresh seafood, pasta, a carving station, and more but the spread is carefully curated and not as overwhelming as some brunch buffets can be. Main courses are served individually from the kitchen. Naturally there is a free-flow Champagne option. A lovely meal in a beautiful setting? How civilized.
