Where is the Fairmont Hotel Singapore located?

Fairmont Hotel Singapore, 80 Bras Basah Rd

The Fairmont Hotel Singapore is ideally located in a central part of town, only 15 minutes walk from the bustling Clarke Quay. It’s central location means that it is situated very close to all major entertainment and shopping districts, plus, there is even a multi-storey shopping mall within the Fairmont Hotel complex.

The Fairmont Hotel Singapore offers 769 luxurious guestrooms and suites, a collection of 16 distinctive restaurants and bars.

Check In

On check-in we got a complimentary mango juice, which was very welcome after the 11 hour flight from London. Your bags are brought to the room 5 minutes after check-in, with the porters calling me ‘Sir Shane’ (which was nice).

The heat and humidity in Singapore can make you feel quite uncomfortable, but the Fairmont Hotel is very well air conditioned and you feel very comfortable indeed. At no point in the hotel did we feel that the humidity or heat was getting to us.

Our Room

The guest rooms are luxurious with a comfortable bed, luxury bathroom and aromatherapy bath products. Our room came with a balcony and the views are stunning from the tower we were in. From the 22nd floor you have a view of Singapore which looked over Singapore Bay, with stunning views of the Singapore Flyer, the amazing Marina Sands Hotel and views towards the city centre. The featured photo above shows the view by night with the lights of Singapore.

Breakfast

Breakfasts are served in three different restaurants but we found that the Asian Market Café was the best, as it had a large selection of foods from typical continental breakfast fare to Chinese / Asian steamed dumplings (which I had a good few of as they were very tasty).

The breakfasts are an experience to be savoured. You can if you wish go for the normal breakfast, croissants, bagels, breads, cereal but the asian breakfast is very special. It was the first time I tried steamed buns, and I have been hooked ever since.

Other Facilities at the Fairmont Singapore Hotel

In addition, guests of Fairmont Singapore have access to the Willow Stream Spa, one of the largest spa facilities in Asia, offering the best in Spa and Fitness services. The Spa Treatments at the Willow Stream are very reasonable and the facilities and therapists are excellent. I tried the massage, and as you overlook the city from 10 or 20 storeys up, you soon forget your troubles. The massage was excellent and any knots I had were soon eased.

The concierge staff at the hotel were also excellent and most friendly – they helped us book a city tour of Singapore as well as organising for our luggage to be held while we awaited out trip back to the airport. The staff were friendly and very helpful at all times.

Demand for luxury shows no signs of stopping in Australia

Demand for luxury shows no signs of stopping in Australia

In the face of economic doom and gloom, it seems luxury accommodation options in Australia are on the up. With several newly-opened hotels doing booming business and more luxury lodges and hotels planned for this year, I’ve taken a look at what visitors down under can look forward to in 2011.

A major part of the success of the Australian hotel trade is the lengths that it will go to in order to provide truly experiential luxury holidays to upmarket clientele. Secluded luxury lodges and private island accommodation is on the increase as hoteliers realise that what their clients want is a unique vacation experience, away from the crowds and large hotel resorts.

If you’re looking for an unforgettable Australian holiday off the beaten track, then private lodges are the way to go. They’re popping up all over the country, with the most sought after in 2010 being Sal Salis at Ningaloo Reef on the Western Australian coast, the Hayman Island private island resort in Whitsundays and Saffire, the new lodge on the Freycinet Peninsula of Tasmania.

Those looking for something more traditional will find no shortage of uber-luxury accommodation options either. Major openings in 2010 included the Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast, the Pinctada Cable Beach resort on Broome, the Chateau Elan at The Vintage in Hunter Valley and the six boutique Art Hotels in Melbourne. Each Art Hotel is themed around the work of a different Australian artist, and they’ve been creating quite a stir.

Looking ahead to 2011, visitors to Sydney can look forward to the much-anticipated opening of the Park8 on Castlereagh Street. Part of the 8Hotels boutique mini-chain that includes the Kirketon and Diamant, Park8 is located in the old Central Park Hotel, just a block away from the beautiful Hyde Park. Expect loft-style living, minimalist décor, the latest technology and the last word in luxury city accommodation. With just 36 rooms in Park8, each and every one of them has been lovingly designed to appeal to luxury holidaymakers.

If you’re planning a luxury getaway down under and you’re looking for low cost flights to offset the high cost hotel bill, the internet’s the best place to search for travel bargains. Try flight specialist sites like DialAFlight for up-to-the-minute deals on flights to Sydney, Melbourne and other major Australian cities.Advertismen-Feature
