About Us

AN URBAN OASIS IN THE PARK

Hotel Fort Canning is a luxurious and award-winning conservation hotel tucked within 18 hectares of lush greenery in Fort Canning Park. Considered one of Singapore’s iconic heritage hotels, Hotel Fort Canning bears a storied past that dates back to the early 20th century, with the building itself a former British military administration site. Today, the hotel’s architecture continues to retain much of its colonial glamour, combining it with modern elements of the surrounding parklands - making Hotel Fort Canning the only heritage hotel to be situated in a historical landmark park.

Strategically located mere minutes from important retail, entertainment and cultural hubs, business and leisure travellers can enjoy the convenience of being located close to Singapore’s Orchard Road shopping belt, the Clarke Quay entertainment hub, the Central Business District, as well as the Museums & Civic District. A stay at Hotel Fort Canning also places you in the very heart of the lush Fort Canning Park, a sanctuary in the city offering verdant foliage and rich history.

Styled by the renowned DP Architects, the 86-room hotel is home to a stunning collection of guest rooms and suites to choose from, each perfect for a romantic weekend or refreshing getaway. Take a lazy swim through space in our two landscaped swimming pools, each filled with mineral water free of chlorine and safe for all skin types. Then complement your stay with a local or international dining experience of your choice at the hotel’s The Salon and Tisettanta Lounge.
The history of Hotel Fort Canning is an intriguing story, one that dates back to the early 20th Century.

Considered as an iconic heritage hotel in Singapore, the Hotel Fort Canning building is the result of the restoration of a former British Military Administration Building.

According to the history of Fort Canning, this military building was built in 1926 as the Administration Building of the British Far East Command HQ. The General-Officer-Commanding, Lieutenant-General Percival, had an office in this building. The building was occupied by the Japanese Military during the Occupation (1942-1945). After the war, the British Military took it back and used it as part of the British Military Administration.

After independence in 1965, the building was taken over by the Singapore Armed Forces, and in 1970, the building was used by the Singapore Command & Staff College (SCSC). In 1976, the SCSC moved out of the building, and it remained unoccupied until 1995, where it housed Fort Canning Country Club.

In November 2002, the present owners took over the premises and launched a premium members-only town club called The Legends Fort Canning Park. The brand expansion of the company led to the conceptualization of a revolutionary luxury hospitality service. In July 2011, the restored heritage building re-opened as Hotel Fort Canning Hotel, along with the stunning Glass House. The conservation building was styled by award-winning DP Architects to incorporate the finest hospitality amenities.
