1. Muslim-friendly In-room Facilities

Fairmont has two towers, the North and South towers. Do take note which view you will be getting before booking! Our Fairmont Premier Room comes with a perfect view of MBS, Esplanade, Merlion and City Hall all in one. You’re welcome.

 

 

 

 

Surprise! That's the Qibla direction :^)

 
 

 

With the spacious room, we had ample space to make prayers. We took our time to unwind afterwards with the panoramic view of the garden city at our personal balcony.

 

 

2. Segregrated Male and Female Spas

 

Enough lounging around the room, we’re getting down to check out the various amenities in and around of the hotel. First stop, Willow Stream Spa!

 

Willow Spa consists of the spa itself, a hair salon, a nail salon, gym and a mini beauty shop. What’s good is there are separate spa areas for men and women so you can relax and let loose. We’re not allowed to take photos due to obvious reasons but even the photos of the facilities can speak for itself, right?

 

3. Asian Market Cafe, Halal International Asian Buffet

 

Located at Level 2, this would be a great choice as your last night for dinner. They provide a buffet spread of both International Asian cuisine and local favourites such as Japanese, Chinese, Malay, Indian and more. Time to get digging!

 

This waiter is making teh tarik, a local favorite drink! Did you know we were there the day Asian Market Cafe officially launched as a Halal certified restaurant? Have a closer look at their Halal friendly services with through our interview with Fairmont Singapore during their opening. P.S There’s also separate prayer rooms right outside Asian Market Cafe. These are frequently used by the restaurant patrons as well as shoppers at the adjacent Raffles City mall.

 

4. In-room Halal Breakfast Service

We all know what lazy couch potatoes we are when we wake up during a holiday. Good thing for us, Fairmont Singapore provides Halal breakfast upon request. These are specially prepared in the same kitchen as Asian Market Cafe (AMC), which is Halal-certified. Now here comes the exciting part. Because AMC is not open during breakfast hours, your Halal breakfast meal comes wheeling in via room service! What a treat.

5. Rest & Relax at the Hospitality Lounge 

 

What’s great about Fairmont Singapore is a hospitality lounge for guests who arrive before the check-in time or have already checked out of their room but have time to kill before their flight. The Hospitality Lounge at Level 6 is where guests can shower, freshen up and have coffee before heading out.

 

6. Shopping Galore

 

If you’re tired or hungry and don’t want to go too far out from the hotel, Fairmont Singapore is connected to Raffles City Shopping Centre, convenient enough to feed your shopping desires. From fast fashion to designer boutiques, you want them, you’ll find them. There are also Halal food kiosks at the Basement and a few Halal stalls at the food court if you’re looking for a more Asian fare.

 

If that’s not enough for you, Suntec City is a 15-minute walk away. Alive Museum is also located on the third floor, humouring patrons with a galore of optical illusion installations. Here is where you should also look out for a plethora of conventions, right at Suntec City Convention Centre. They have held several large events such as CelebFest and Anime Festival Asia.
