Raffles Singapore

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.

From the moment that we were greeted with ‘Welcome home’ on arrival until the moment we left when the team waved us off, we very much felt like we were part of the Raffles family. We’ve now stayed at Raffles quite a few times on staycations and it never gets tired or old - there is always something new to discover and new ways for the hotel and teams that work there to surprise you. This time we stayed for my birthday and fair to say that Raffles pushed the boat out with champagne in the room and an unbelievable gift that literally brought tears to my eyes. As always - butler service was exemplary (thanks Grace and team), rooms were immaculate, Writers Bar welcoming and a great spot to spend a few hours, and food delicious! Long may we be able to stay at ‘home’! Read less

We had a lovely two-night stay at the Raffles Hotel, Singapore. The hotel is truly rich in history and the renovation and restoration has been sympathetically done, resulting in a wonderful blend of the traditional and the modern. Truly no other hotel like this in Singapore. The palm court suite was gorgeous - spacious, well laid out, and worth every penny. Special thanks to the wonderful staff who made our stay extra special: Mr Roslee, for the engaging and interesting history tour - you are a fountain of knowledge and a delightful ambassador for the hotel and for Singapore. Thanks too, to Kimberley and Jiyeon who gave a us a warm welcome to the hotel and the smoothest check-in experience ever. And thank you to all the other staff who all clearly take pride in their jobs including Alicia and the butler team, and the wonderful generals at the entrance. We shall be back! Read less

The hotel with its rich history is an attraction itself. The tour by the resident historian, which brought us to the Presidential Suite, made the stay all the more memorable. The service was impeccable, the facilities were augmented by technology (iPad controlled air con and lighting!). Definitely hope to be back again!

Beautiful hotel with excellent service. Though located centrally, you truly feel at rest. The staff are attentive and friendly, and every need is catered too. They particularly went out of their way to make my son’s first birthday an unforgettable one.
