4 Heritage Hotels in Singapore To Stay in
Thinking of travelling to Singapore or booking for your well-deserved staycation? How about pampering yourself with a good night stay in an iconic heritage hotel in Singapore?
1. Raffles Hotel
Need we say anymore? The oldest hotel in Singapore that opened its doors in the late 1800s, is renovated to serve its wonderful guests. Beyond indulging in its heritage lobbies, impeccable services, patrons can also enjoy the newly opened restaurants. The long bar is definitely a must try where the original Singapore sling is born. And if you are adventurous enough, sink your teeth into Yi, a new Chinese restaurant conceptualised by Jereme Leung. Leung presents traditional Chinese cuisine in a fancier and exquisite manner to suit the ambience of the hotel, while maintaining the Chinese food quality.
Address: 1 Beach Rd, Singapore 189673
2. Fullerton Hotel
Named after Robert Fullerton, Fullerton Hotel was previously a Fort and not a hotel. The purpose of the establishment was to defend the town of Singapore located at the mouth of Singapore River. Built in 1829, Fullerton has definitely witnessed transformational events that took place in Singapore. If you are prepared to immerse yourself fully in history, book yourself a heritage room. The room is unique as it features historic architectural cornices and original motifs.
Address: 1 Fullerton Square, Singapore 049178
3. Hotel Fort Canning
Beautiful especially at night with its lights lit up. Go for a brisk walk and learn about the relatively unknown side of pre-1819 history of Singapore before heading back to Hotel Fort Canning. Unlike other buildings where it also witnessed war, this is the place where key historical decisions were made and thought through. Hotel Fort Canning was once the British Far East Command Headquarters during World War II and it had changed hands multiple times – first from the British Army to the Japanese during the Occupation, then back again to the British Army. Get ready to be transported back time as you stay in one of those rooms.
Address: 11 Canning Walk, Singapore 178881
4. Goodwood Park Hotel
Its exterior resembles a castle design, perfect for individuals who dreamed of becoming a king or queen someday. Just like other historical hotel, Goodwood Park has its own stories too. Started off as a retreat exclusively for the German expats, it became a hotel only in 1929, and became the ground for war crime trials after WWII. It still has a majestic air, with elegant columns and classical archways, and rooms are mostly done up in the tropical colonial shades of cream and beige. Time for a good night sleep!
