The hotel's al fresco bar Lantern is a hotspot among locals and guests.

The upscale Fullerton Bay Hotel opened in 2010 and is one of the newest — and hottest – hotels on the Marina Bay waterfront. It’s intimate by Singapore hotel standards (100 rooms), and with its top-notch service and wonderful amenities, the property feels exclusive and private. Spacious rooms have masculine decor, with dark colors and wood accents, and come equipped with high-end amenities, including Egyptian cotton linens, Molton Brown toiletries, Nespresso coffeemakers, and iPod docks. Double-glazed floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning bay and skyline views. The vistas can also be enjoyed from the balconies and the deep soaking tubs (note that the glass walls between the tubs and the rooms do have privacy shades). The stylish rooftop bar, the huge pool, and the great dining options round out the experience at this gorgeous boutique. See more incredible photos after the jump or read our full review now»

The Capella is an upscale property in historic colonial-style buildings on Sentosa Island. Beautiful rooms have contemporary decor with Asian-inspired touches, and high-end amenities such as rainforest showerheads, iPod docks, and big flat-screen TVs. Floor-to-ceiling windows show off great South China Sea views in most rooms and many rooms have balconies. A soft color palette, hardwood floors, and warm lighting all make rooms even more appealing. This hotel also has a butler assigned to each guest on arrival, a fleet of Mercedes and Rolls-Royce Phantoms, and an excellent spa. The location, away from mainland Singapore, is quiet and relaxed.

A few weeks back, we had the pleasure of attending a luncheon organized by the Singapore Tourism Board. And it truly was a pleasure, munching on traditional specialties like laksa and Hainanese chicken rice while listening to Anthony Bourdain – Singapore’s unofficial spokesperson — wax philosophical about the island nation’s vibrant food culture. Just listening to that man talk about Singapore’s street food and hawker centers is enough to make you book a plane ticket in order to indulge in piping hot beef rendang for a week.

But learning about Singapore was especially interesting for us for one reason in particular: Shortly, Singapore will be a brand new destination added to Oyster! You heard it here first: We have a hotel investigator on the ground in Singapore, hard at work photographing and evaluating hotels – probably as we are writing this.

Below we’re giving you an exclusive SNEAK PEEK at some of the beautiful and truly unbelievable hotels you will see reviewed on Oyster soon.

Check out more photos of a few of Singapore’s luxury hotels after the jump!
