SINGAPORE’S MAMMOTH MARINA BAY SANDS casino complex may be the city’s most talked-about debut, but the real gem is hidden in its shadow across the bay. The 100-room Fullerton Bay Hotel, with spaces by rising design star Andre Fu, occupies a historic 1930’s pier. Handsome rooms are kitted up in rosewood, leather and chrome, with terraces maximizing views of the city skyline or the Marina Bay. Outsize chandeliers and mosaic Italian marble tiles create a glittering effect in the lobby, while Lantern, the slinky rooftop bar, is the place to be seen.
