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.

It's a must when in Singapore, to visit and experience the home of the Singapore Sling! From the front, the side paths lead you through towards the back of the hotel and up to the first floor, where they have recreated the colonial bar experience. Monkey nuts shells all over the floor and of course the famous Singapore Sling to quench your thirst from the intence heat outside. "Fan" fans (as well as air conditioning) flap above you and the bar tenders do their skills of cocktail making in front of you. Great staff, fantastic atmosphere - another great experience had. Thank you! Read less

Made a quick stop via the hotel for a visit to the famous bar of the Singapore sling. Amazing service and cocktail (obviously the price of these is a little more step here) but it’s the real deal. Newt renovated inside and free peanuts to munch on at the bar

My husband and I and 2 friends had afternoon tea and it was delicious. So well presented and lots of it. The ambience and surroundings were as you would expect from Raffles. It had a very relaxing feel to it. The harpist only added to the experience. The staff were friendly but super efficient. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
