The Hotel Fort Canning building is the result of the restoration of a former British Military structure.The 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). The British Military took it back after the war and used it as part of the British Military Administration.
The building was taken over by the Singapore Armed Forces when Singapore became independent. 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, when it housed the Fort Canning Country Club. The Legends Fort Canning Park took over the premises in November 2002, and on 1 November 2010, it the restored heritage building re-opened as Hotel Fort Canning, the hotel wing of The Legends Fort Canning Park.
An urban oasis, the 86-room Hotel Fort Canning promises a unique sojourn. Presenting all of the amenities of a 5-star city-resort inclusive of state-of-the-art gym equipment by Techno-Gym, renowned Thai Spa operator - Thann; outstanding food & beverage outlets including Gattopardo Italian Grill & Pizza Bar by the Garibaldi Group of Restaurants; two full-sized swimming pools and extensive meeting facilities, Hotel Fort Canning epitomizes the concept "urban oasis meets heritage hotel".
Surrounded by the lush greenery of a historical park, this unique setting straddles not only the Orchard Road shopping belt, the Clarke Quay entertainment hub, but also the Central Business District, and the Civic District. All in all - a most coveted address.
Hotel Fort Canning’s location in a City Park is truly central – to one side is Orchard Road, the main shopping drag and the Champs Elysees of Singapore; to another is the Clarke Quay Entertainment Hub, where myriad bars and restaurants can be found; and yet on another side is the Museums & Civic District, with at least 4 major museums within walking distance!
Nature may not be the first thing one associates with Singapore's prime shopping belt, but the Butterfly Trail at Orchard Road hopes to change this.
Professor Tommy Koh launched the first phase of the Butterfly Trail a project to highlight Singapore's urban biodiversity, with 900 shrubs and 24 trees planted along Nassim Road. With them included nectar plants, which will attract butterflies to the area.
Experts hope up to 50 species will find their way to the trail. There is also the butterfly walk, a four kilometer trail from the Botanic Gardens to Fort Canning Park that aims to increase interest in nature.
