Raffles Singapore

Singapore, Asia and Far East

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 stayed at Raffles hotel from Sept. 11th 2019 (2 Nights). I was so surprised and impressed by Raffles-Reborn so beautifully! First impression at the Drive-way entrance was Indian door men!! they are still the symbol of this hotel. And lobby chandelier was really wonderful!! It really looked like originally there. Check-in is really smooth and friendly. Very relaxing. Especially Hafiz, Lobby Ambassador was so nice. His attitude was excellent!! Before bringing us to the suite he explained and orientate about the lobby, facility etc. Even at the suite he explained very well. I was very surprised he was new for Raffles staff but for me really feel like professional. His customer service is so humble and genuine..I am very much impressed.. But I think you need a little more improvement of the style of Butlers. I think their communication with Front Desk is not so well. We waited more than 30min until Butler arrived. I called to Butler's number many times but no one answered. Finally one Butler name Ginn arrived, but still had to wait another 10min for a Japanese Butler coming for my elder mother’s room.It doesn’t feel like First Class Hotel Service on the Butler side for me. So from the next day, I didn’t call to Butler anymore. I communicate directly from Front Desk or Concierge Desk. But all together we enjoyed our stay at Raffles Hotel Singapore so much. I believe Raffles hotel is still one of the best hotel of the world. . Read less

We visited Raffles on our last trip to Singapore in 2011 but had to come back to see how it looked after a mega refurb. Result? Absolutely stunning.

We visited Raffles on our last trip to Singapore in 2011 but had to come back to see how it looked after a mega refurb. Result? Absolutely stunning. The hotel is pristine and blindingly white in bright sunshine. Unlike our last visit, we had to queue for the Long Bar which had not changed much except for the new flooring. Prices are still rather extravagant with a beer at £12.81 and Singapore Sling at £19.21 (converting to sterling). Prices aside, well worth the visit Read less

Raffles Hotel is beautiful and I’m sure staying there would be an experience. My daughter and I went for High Tea. While everything is run efficiently, I would not describe my experience as welcoming, happy to take your money but if you’re not a guest of the hotel than you’re second class.

Raffles Hotel is beautiful and I’m sure staying there would be an experience. My daughter and I went for High Tea. While everything is run efficiently, I would not describe my experience as welcoming, happy to take your money but if you’re not a guest of the hotel than you’re second class. High Tea is served in the Lobby and if you need a rest room then it’s the outside toilet. No background music and service is average. My daughter and I have had a number of High Teas on our holidays and would advise others to try elsewhere. Read less

Had a long layover in Singapore and was invited to BBR. The ambiance was great and so was the service. The manager made sure our table was well attended. She helped out her staff as a good manager should. The food was great, the casual sharing concept is enjoyable.

Beautifully restored and stunning venue. Free to wander around the precinct which must be annoying to patrons. Long bar is not particularly long but the ambience worthy of a visit. A surprisingly intimate bar. Be warned that drinks are very pricey - $38AU for a Singapore Sling and $20 for a Tiger Beer. At least the peanuts were free with shells… Read more

At least the peanuts were free with shells thrown on the floor - maybe in disgust at the prices! Read less
