Louis Sailer, general manager of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles
Earlier today, Travel Agent met with Louis Sailer, general manager of the high-end The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, on his recent swing through Los Angeles. The 400-room Fullerton Hotel Singapore was formerly the historic Fullerton Building, built in 1928. It became The Fullerton Hotel Singapore in 2001. "The hotel is old on the outside, but new on the inside,” says Sailer. “Although the interior décor has traces of 1930’s Art Deco design, it’s completely modern and high tech.”
The exciting news from Sailer was the preview he gave of a new project that is underway, The Fullerton Bay Hotel, which will be the only hotel in Singapore built on the water of Marina Bay. The hotel, with 100 rooms and suites, will adjoin the landmark Clifford Pier and offer unobstructed bay views. It will feature between three and four floating spas, each with two double treatment rooms. “The Fullerton Bay Hotel will offer a very private and upscale experience,” says Sailer. “We’ll be taking the service level up a notch, with such features as 24-hour butler service.”
The hotel will have one classy city lounge and a chic restaurant. “Singapore has only a few rooftop bars, and the rooftop bar at the The Fullerton Bay Hotel will be the only one on the bay,” says Sailer.
The six story property is only a short distance from The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, and both properties will be connected via an underpass. Best estimates at this time peg The Fullerton Bay Hotel’s completion at the end of 2009.

The complete Fullerton Heritage project includes existing buildings One Fullerton, The Fullerton Hotel, The Fullerton Waterboat House, Clifford Pier and Customs House. The project comprises luxury retailers and sophisticated entertainment venues and aims to lure big spenders away from Singapore’s Orchard Road.
