The flagship hotel comprises 615 well-appointed guestrooms with a full range of modern amenities, recreational facilities, and dining establishments. Commuting to and from the hotel is a breeze.
There are seven categories of rooms, which mean that there is a room for all kinds of holidaymakers — from the comfortable Superior Room and newly renovated Deluxe Room to the Courtyard Club with alfresco green terrace and the inviting 56sqm- Executive Suite. Every room is generously spacious and stylishly decorated, and fully equipped with basic amenities and modern conveniences we expect from our hotels these days.

Juniors will have fun jumping around on the trampoline, enjoy a bowling session with newly met friends or build their own kingdom or castle with Lego and blocks.
And the Furama dining outlets. With Singapore continuously rising in popularity as a regional gourmet hub, could the F&B outlets be far behind? From breakfasts to dinners, you can spoil your taste buds here with some of the best flavors in the Lion City.
You can indulge in the authentic Halal Indonesian cuisine at Kintamani Indonesian Restaurant or savor the vast spread of international dishes at The Square @ Furama.

Keeping the Furama kitchens abuzz is an entourage of experienced culinary chefs, helmed by award-winning Executive Chef William Lum. Wide ranges of renowned wines are available at the restaurant to complement your finely prepared platter.
Another one reason Furama Riverfront is popular among business traveler must be its business and meeting facilities.

All function rooms are well designed and fully equipped with audiovisual and wi-fi accessibility, and cater to every event needs.
But perhaps the best thing is the overall service. Singapore is noted for efficiency and quick action, but you get more from the team at Furama RiverFront, the reason why the hotel has snapped the Best Mid-Range Hotel, Asia Pacific in the TTG Awards for five consecutive years (2009- 2013).
