The Fullerton Hotel

1998 – 2000

This historic building in the heart of Singapore dating from 1928 was refurbished and transformed into a five-star luxury hotel with 405 rooms. A commercial building, “One Fullerton”, was also built on a reclaimed land opposite to the hotel. The combined floor area of these two buildings is 64,160 sqm.


While the building’s breathtaking exterior – a nod to Neo-classical architecture – had been retained and restored, Dragages Singapore transformed and extended the building into a five-star hotel with an additional basement. The interior of the building was entirely demolished, except for a room on the fourth storey – the Straits Room where the peace treaty between Singapore and Japan was signed after World War II.


Under the helm of Dragages Singapore, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore stands today as a multi-award winning establishment that is famously lauded for its exemplary guest experience. The hotel is also an iconic building that forms an integral part of the beautiful Singapore River landscape.
