ABOUT HOTEL FORT CANNING 

Hotel Fort Canning is a 5-star boutique hotel located in the middle of the historic Fort Canning Park, atop a small hill in the heart of Singapore. This hotel is famously known as a ‘hidden oasis in the middle of Singapore’ since it offers more than just a place to stay. You can explore nature in the middle of the city!  

Historically, Hotel Fort Canning was built in a 1926 building that hosted the Administration of the British Far East Command HQ. Japanese took over the building during World War II and later returned the building to British military hands after the war. Later, the building is beautifully restored to become one famous historic hotel while preserving the heritage status of the building. Check here to learn more about Fort Canning Park and its history.

The hotel is strategically located in the middle of the Park, also known as “Forbidden Hill” which also has an incredible amount of history behind it. Luxury, location and history, Hotel Fort Canning Singapore definitely has it all.

 

THE DELUXE ROOM

There are only 85 rooms and suites at Hotel Fort Canning split into six category levels: Deluxe Rooms, Deluxe Garden Rooms, Premium rooms, Premium Luxe Rooms, Studio Suites and the Majapahit and Governor’s Suite.

Walking into our deluxe room, the room was literally flooded with natural light! The room was spacious, high ceilings and beautifully designed. The room’s cinnamon color wood contrasted with the brightness of the bathroom’s white giving it all a very light, airy and cozy feeling.

Heritage Boutique Hotel in Singapore

The first thing that caught our eyes was the beautiful bathroom – elegant with minimalistic design, yet holding true to its historical colonial roots. The bathroom is equipped with electrically controlled blinds for both the external window and the windows into the room. What else can we say – we totally enjoyed our Deluxe Room, it’s picture-window offering panoramic views of the city skyline.

FACILITIES

Mineral Pool at Hotel Fort Canning Singapore

One of the best facilities provided here would be the three mineral water pools – the perfect place to escape Singapore’s midday heat. The swimming pools at Hotel Fort Canning are filled with mineral water treated by a system from NASA which eliminates the chlorine smell and safe for health issues related to pool chlorine. This is the first property we’ve stayed with mineral water pools!

This hotel also provides an air-conditioned gym and a spa for you to really enjoy your stay here.

 

SERVICES

The team at Hotel Fort Canning accommodated our needs with bright smiles and welcoming hands that you literally felt like home.

On top of that, they offered a breakfast buffet every day at The Salon Restaurant. You can find almost anything here, from pastries to traditional Asian foods. Definitely another highlight of Fort Canning Hotel.

In addition, we got to know that the hotel offered walking tours around the area, so be sure to take advantage of it to learn more about the immense history in the area.

We find it interesting that the hotel offers an oasis of serenity yet geographically near to Dhoby Ghaut MRT and other touristy areas such as Clark Quay, Orchard Road and Little India – all are within walking distance! Totally the best of both worlds. A little tip – though there is an actual Fort Canning MRT stop, we found the Dhoby Ghaut MRT to be much closer to Fort Canning Hotel.

Needless to say, we loved this hotel. It’s perfect for couples looking for a quiet location surrounded by nature, yet just a short walk from the city center. Experience the grandeur of colonial Singapore at Fort Canning Hotel the next time you are in Singapore!

Wishing you luxurious stays,

Sue & Renesh
