The Fuller­ton Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore might not in­stantly spring to mind when trav­ellers are con­sid­er­ing lux­ury fam­ily breaks, but with time­less style and a glo­ri­ous location backed by The Fuller­ton Ho­tel's out­stand­ing ser­vice and at­ten­tion to de­tail, maybe it should.

The Fuller­ton Build­ing is a mag­nif­i­cent neo­clas­si­cal Sin­ga­porean land­mark build­ing ad­ja­cent to Marina Bay built in 1928 that through its his­tory has been home to Sin­ga­pore's Gen­eral Post Of­fice, the Ex­change Room, Ex­change Ref­er­ence Li­brary and the pres­ti­gious Sin­ga­pore Club. Viewed as one of most sought af­ter lo­ca­tions in Sin­ga­pore, the build­ing opened as a stun­ning 400-room five-star lux­ury her­itage ho­tel in 2001. Backed by out­stand­ing ser­vice, un­ri­valled at­ten­tion to de­tail and fab­u­lous fa­cil­i­ties, it has grown to be one of the city's most pop­u­lar ho­tels.

Like many old build­ings, The Fuller­ton

Ho­tel has a great deal to tell and its ma­jes­tic his­tory un­folds via static and in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays through­out the ho­tel. Fam­i­lies are in­vited to join the free her­itage tours where kids can learn about the precinct's rich and colourful past and gain exclusive ac­cess to lim­ited ar­eas within the ho­tel on the Fuller­ton Mon­u­ment Tour. Younger kids will be en­thralled by the way teddy bears are used as part of the gen­eral nar­ra­tive; the gi­ant Post­mas­ter bear at the en­trance is a firm pho­to­graphic favourite and a prime ex­am­ple.

The rooms are large with am­ple space for the ex­tra beds fam­i­lies re­quire. Nat­u­rally the fa­cil­i­ties are of the high­est stan­dard, but for fam­i­lies it's the lit­tle things that

mat­ter. The sig­na­ture Post­mas­ter bear, al­beit smaller, makes an­other ap­pear­ance and the ameni­ties in­clude child sham­poos, creams and wipes. The en­ter­tain­ment pack in­cludes Our Fuller­ton Ad­ven­ture colour­ing books and pen­cils and kids get a free ice­cream pass – def­i­nitely not to be sniffed at!

For par­ents tak­ing ad­van­tage of the ho­tel's fa­mous Sun­day Cham­pagne Brunch, there's a su­per­vised Kids' Room where young­sters can safely have fun with face paint­ing and other ac­tiv­i­ties. There is no full-time kids' club at the ho­tel, but what The Fuller­ton loses there, it gains by close prox­im­ity to some of Sin­ga­pore's most pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tions. Over­look­ing Marina Bay, The Fuller­ton Ho­tel sits in pole po­si­tion for many of Sin­ga­pore's must-see at­trac­tions.

The Mer­lion and the Sin­ga­pore Flyer are just a few min­utes' walk. The fa­mous Helix Bridge con­nects you to the Artscience Mu­seum, Marina Bay Sands and the fab­u­lous Gar­dens by the Bay. The Vic­to­ria Theatre, the Es­planade The­atres and the Asian Civil­i­sa­tions Mu­seum are on your doorstep. Raf­fles, Fort Can­ning and the Cathay Cine­plex are just 12 min­utes away on foot and if you want to go fur­ther afield the ho­tel is just 200m from Raf­fles Place MRT sta­tion and di­rectly on the bus route. There are also reg­u­lar free shut­tle buses run­ning to Marina Bay, Or­chard Road and the fi­nan­cial district, mak­ing it easy to get about.

Din­ing at The Fuller­ton Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore is an­other winner with kids. The all­day din­ing at Town Restau­rant and the Cake Bou­tique are par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar through the week, as is Jade's fab­u­lous dim sum brunch on Satur­days and Sun­days. Town Restau­rant fea­tures an ex­cel­lent daily themed buf­fet din­ner and is also where the de­li­cious buf­fet break­fast is served.

With a stun­ning 25m in­fin­ity pool set against the back­drop of the ma­jes­tic ho­tel and over­look­ing the Sin­ga­pore River, a spa, sauna and gym­na­sium for older guests, The Fuller­ton Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore re­ally is a se­ri­ous con­tender for your next lux­ury get­away to Sin­ga­pore.
