Raffles Singapore

Singapore, Asia and Far East

The hotel

Raffes Singapore has come to be known as one of the country’s most iconic landmarks. The hotel is currently undergoing a careful and sensitive restoration, but will welcome guests to a newly restored hotel. Retaining its striking architecture, unbeatable hospitality and excellent facilities — along with its elegant touches and colonial charm — the magic will start the minute you step through its palm-fringed doors. After making yourself at home in one of the hotel's 115 luxurious suites, each one equipped with a wide variety of amenities and elegant furnishings, it’s time to explore your new surroundings. Meander around the hotel’s lushly landscaped gardens, relax with a treatment in the Raffles Spa - site of the utmost tranquility - or head to the Arcade to while away the hours browsing through speciality boutiques and the Raffles Gift Shop for souvenirs and gourmet gifts. If you need to cool off head to the rooftop, location of the hotel’s swimming pool and a lovely place to relax, surrounded by lush, green gardens. The hotel’s Long Bar is renowned for its world-famous Singapore Slings while the new Writers Bar will present bespoke craft cocktails, wines and spirits. Those feeling peckish can choose to dine in the comfort of their own room or sample the fare at one of the hotel's many restaurants. Discover the best mooncakes in Singapore at Raffles Singapore, head to Tiffin Room for authentic North Indian cuisine or a quintessential Afternoon Tea in the heart of the restored lobby and allow yourself to be transported back to the hotel's golden days by the early 20th century décor and ambience.

What is there to say? Unbelievably high prices, 33 Singapore dollars for a drink! Done. We were made to feel like trash as we entered the hotel. Clearly, we just weren’t the right clientele’.

What is there to say? Unbelievably high prices, 33 Singapore dollars for a drink! Done. We were made to feel like trash as we entered the hotel. Clearly, we just weren’t the right clientele’. Seriously, the place is now full of ridiculously ‘chic’ furniture shops and they are trying to retain a Raffles prestigious persona. Stop making real people feel second rate. Your drinks are so overpriced that people can’t afford to stay for a second drink. Would I go back? No. But of course, you rely on visitors wanting the experience. Shame on you. Read less

We had a fantastic time at the newly renovated Raffles lobby for high tea. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. Staff was very professional yet friendly and made us very comfortable. It’s a pricey treat but worth every penny!

This was outstanding Mr Ring and his staff are the new gate keepers for heaven. If you have a dying wish add to it and the you may come close to the new Raffles. The obvious starting point is a Singapore Sling, the nectar of the gods served by angels moving on to the Hotel surroundings, outstanding and caring in maintaining this colonial background. The waiters are angels making your visit memorable. The sommelier is St Peter, his knowledge, courtesy makes dying a enjoyable experience. If you only have money left to make one more outstanding visit make Raffles your choice you will die happy and content. I hope to return Read less

The iconic and historic Raffles Hotel. Recently refurbished and due for 'reopening in August 2019 for guests. We visited in July 2019 for afternoon tea. Approx £60 each. Selection of sandwiches, pastries and cakes and of course a choice of teas. All silver service of course. Delightful and a bucket list thing to do. From the moment we arrived to leaving the staff were a delight. So helpful and attentive. Took the time to show us around the grounds and explain all that we needed to know. Refurbished to the highest standards and retains it's colonial charm in the middle of a bustling metropolis of sky scrapers. Would love to stay here but who knows!? It maintains it's decorum with a strict dress code although it won't be enforced until the official reopening. Lovely hotel. Fantastic staff. A step back in time to a civilised opulence. Read less

While in transit in Singapore, my husband and I had the chance to be one of the first customers after the refurbishment of the hotel to try the afternoon tea at the lobby. Being a huge fan of the Raffles brand, I must say that they are setting the bar very high, food is excellent (Scones with the strawberry rose jam is a must try, the pistachio puff and the peanut long bar), service was immaculate, Raymond did a great job and we were constantly checked upon by Hassan who would tell us stories about the hotel. We had a blast and will definitely be back to experience a stay at this marvelous property. Read less
