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.

I brought my parents here for afternoon tea and whilst it was on the higher end of price (68+ per person) we did thoroughly enjoy ourselves and well worth it for the total experience of being at Raffles and treated with quality service. We were warmly greeted at the entrance of the hotel and directed to our booked seats, you can only enter if you are a guest staying at the hotel or dining in one of the F&B outlets. As you can see in the picture there was a variety of sweet and savoury items on Top of fresh scones with cream and jam which are brought around the tables. There was plenty of food to go round and we were satisfyingly full after! We did not opt for champagne on arrival as that is extra. They also charge 3$ per person for water. Regardless it was still an extremely enjoyable afternoon and well worth the experience of dining at the luxurious Raffles hotel. Read less

On my bucket list since I was a teenager, in fact delayed our Singapore trip by a year to insure the restoration work was completed. Icons seldom meet expectations. Raffles' staff, food, ambiance and grounds totally exceeded ours. We feel privileged to have been able to participate in this grand icon's restoration.

So many thoughtful touches in the rooms and the staff:guest engagement. Staff with initiative and service culture. From the cleaners through to the butlers and head chef. In the busiest part of the city, the grounds are an oasis of calm. The rooms are very well soundproofed
