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.

When we visited last year, we could only go to the Long Bar as the main hotel was still being refurbished. So we just had to go back and how pleased we were that we did. It is like stepping back into a bygone era with all the modern day comforts. The service is as you would expect - first class. We chose to have afternoon tea there. What a treat. When we could not possibly manage all the glorious food put in front of us, it was boxed up for us to take away. When we thanked the staff for their attention and kindness, their reaction was to thank us for coming. What a total delight !! Read less

Decided to take advantage of the 3 for 4 deal which was great value and very tasty! There is also a current promotion of 25 percent off drinks. The hotel are very careful about checking temperatures etc. Everyone picks a dish off the shared menu and they also cater to special dietary requirements. Highly recommend!

We booked afternoon tea in the grand lobby. The surroundings were elegant with high ceilings and plenty of greenery. It didn’t feel as though the tables were crowded together. We happened to be there on St Patrick’s Day and some of the harp music reflected that. The music was in no way intrusive and added to the overall effect. The afternoon tea… Read more
We booked afternoon tea in the grand lobby. The surroundings were elegant with high ceilings and plenty of greenery. It didn’t feel as though the tables were crowded together. We happened to be there on St Patrick’s Day and some of the harp music reflected that. The music was in no way intrusive and added to the overall effect. The afternoon tea was very good; there were sandwiches, scones and several little cakes and pastries, sufficient for each of us to taste everything Additional little plates of goodies arrived from time to time. We expected to leave feeling slightly hungry but that wasn’t the case at all. We were all more than satisfied with the quantity. As for the quality; oh it was good! The variety of sandwiches was perfect. The little choux pastries were gorgeous and then the little apple tart was amazing! The champagne was pretty decent too! Read less

We caught a local taxi to Raffles Hotel just to have the obligatory "Singapore Sling", as you do! The hotel is resplendent in white and an absolute gem to see. Go in by the main entrance to see the doormen in their pristine uniforms.Follow around to the left for the Long Bar. You pass by the East India Rooms and through the lush gardens. Once you almost leave the hotel turn up the steps to the Long Bar. We arrived at 1130am and expected to queue. Because of corona we were led straight in and shown to our table. We chose the "sling" of course. You'll find a bag of monkey nuts on the table. It is traditional to throw the casing upon the floor {it kept the dust down in former years}In the end we had two Singapore Slings each which cost around £80.00 but, hey ho, we;re on holiday.
