The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts has expanded overseas with its first non-Singapore property â€“ the 416-key The Fullerton Hotel Sydney.
Occupying the former General Post Office building at No. 1 Martin Place, the luxury hotel in Sydney’s CBD offers Fullerton Experiences, a bespoke programme featuring complimentary heritage tours and events, two F&B options and five event spaces.
All guestrooms are furnished with Harman Kardon Bluetooth speakers, Nespresso machines, TWG teas from Singapore, and a pillow menu. Atkinson amenities have been introduced in standard room categories, with Balmain amenities making a debut in club rooms and suites.
Guests can fill their bellies at The Place, which serves modern Australian cuisine and South-east Asian dishes; and The Bar which comprises The Lounge and The Room.
For event planners, the pillarless Grand Ballroom is the hotel’s largest function venue, capable of hosting a 1,000-pax banquet.
The buildingâ€™s rich history, dating back to 1874, can be appreciated through Fullerton Experiences’s complimentary heritage tours. Open to hotel guests and the general public, these tours will be launched on November 1, 2019. Docents will share stories of those who have worked at the General Post Office building, which has connected Sydney to the wider world through letters, telegrams and phone exchanges.
The 90-minute heritage tours will also showcase the intricate stonework and reveal little-known facts of bygone years. Exclusive tours for hotel guests will run on Fridays and Saturdays at 10.00, while members of the public are invited to join the tours on Fridays and Saturdays at 11.45. Each session can accommodate 15 guests.
The other property in the The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts family is The Fullerton Heritage by Marina Bay in Singapore, which comprises The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore.
