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.

Obviously going to Raffles was part of our plans for our visit to Singapore but we were disappointed when we realised it was closed for refurbishment. However, we went to see the hotel anyway. Delighted was not the word when we found the Long Bar open and a table for four was there almost calling us. Three Singapore Slings, a beer and a pile of peanut shells later we left so happy that we had been able to experience a tradition. One over riding memory is the little child sat at the table next to us who was waiting for her parents to eat their peanuts so she could swish the shells onto the floor. The look she gave each time was as if she was being naughty and getting away with it. Expensive drinks. Priceless memories. Read less

This was on my bucket list and I'm so glad we did it. It's been closed and 're vamped and was worth it fantastic is an understatement. Had to queue a bit for a table but the maitre de soon found us a table. As we were so thirsty on a hot day we got a 1/4 yard if ale to share then 2 singapore slings. This way we could savour them, there was a bag of peanuts on the table but remember to put your shells on the floor it's traditional. Bill for the 3 drinks came to $110 singapore dollars which is about £75. Expensive but oh so worth it just to say you've been amazing place. Read less

Decided to go into the famous bar at Raffles Hotel, what a experience beautiful Long Bar & was fully packed by tourists. No doubt its just wonderful in this unique hotel bar with magnificent decore and the Singapore Gin Sling is so tasty. Presently when we visited in late April a lot of the hotel is under a complete refurbishment, but you can around walk along the first floor balcony to the main entrance. Just wonderful architecture for when it was built all those years ago, certainly worth a visited when staying this city. Read less

Obviously everyone knows drinks are not going to be cheap , but how can you not go to Raffles if it’s your first trip to Singapore. Kids even entertained with the peanuts and shells all over the floor ! Great ambience!

This building is the absolute mix of history and class in this part of Singapore. So many new hotels have come up but Raffles has a delightful service culture, efficiency and they took care of me with authentic care. We were pampered, great concierge, bar and breakfast.
