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.

Good quiet getaway, lush rooms with old English feel, rich history is a plus, nice restaurants within hotel arcade but can be a little pricy. Great location to explore local delights with the convenience of the city.

A quick 2 nights stay in the hotel. As per before, nice hotel and great hospitality. This time round , stayed in the stateroom suite facing the Fairmont hotel. Had dinner at the Yi by Jereme Leung Chinese restaurant. Very nice food and was given a 20% discount as an Accor plus diamond member. Will be back again.

This was the second time in the Grand Dame each time back the experience was better than the last. We spent all our vacation days in 2020 on staycations and it would be an understatement if we said that the service at Raffles is second to none. We have travelled widely and stayed at hotels of every category - but we are proud that the best hotel is actually in our own backyard. The Raffles team has surpassed all of our expectations. From the comfortable limo ride to the warm welcome of the entire team at the front, the seamless check in, the attention to details by the butler. Everything was perfect this time! There were even little touches to enhance the already-opulent experience - the offer to take a photo as you walk into the beautiful lobby, the welcome Singapore Sling and the in-room high tea. Thank you for the best experience yet in Raffles. With that, how can I not return? Read less

An immaculate weekend celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in this iconic gem. The Raffles Hotel staff delivered beyond expectations to curate the most unforgettable stay for us. We have staycationed half a dozen times over the past 6 months and the quality of our stay at Raffles surpassed all of our past experiences over delivering in luxury and elegance. Like many of you, I had pictured 2020 and the start of 2021 differently and had intricate plans to celebrate this milestone event outside of Singapore. If given a choice, I would not have celebrated it differently. I found myself daydreaming in splendour whisked away to a golden era as soon as we stepped into the bright and opulent lobby. Our experience kicked off with a historical tour about the hotel’s rich history, architecture, and past guests. From pre-arrival to post checkout, the staff, the surroundings, food offerings, and service were faultless. We dined at nearly every establishment from Chinese at Yi, Steak at Butcher’s Block, breakfast at the Tiffin Room, Singapore slings at the newly opened Long Bar, lobster rolls on the beautiful pool deck, cocktails and Boules at the Raffles Courtyard, and tipples at the Writers Bar. And who can forget the elegant La Dame du Pic, by 3-Michelin-star chef, Anne-Sophie Pic where I celebrated my birthday last year. Every single detail was thought out, from the beautiful touches of the hotel’s history with writing excerpts and local gifts laid out during turn down service to the hospitable butler service and thoughtful touches to commemorate our anniversary with personal notes from all of the staff. I will definitely be back and long for another weekend at the Padang Grand Hotel Suite. Read less
