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.

Beautifully orchestrated, both the elegant physical environment but particularly the professional & engaging service, these combined to make relaxing & drinking here a truly memorable experience! That we unexpectedly found fine wines specially priced at only $10 per glass was truly astounding in this city where value is rarely but mostly never on the menu .... but that Brittany oysters could be had for just $2 each blew us away ! And they were so stunningly presented with a fine array of accompaniments...well, it was staggering! This section of the recently renovated Raffles has barely changed ...it was always more or less thus.. but the pavilion bar & greenery + very comfortable seating are wonderfully achieved & one might only wish they’d employed exterior fans to give some relief from the muggy atmosphere to gild the lily perfectly. Absolutely outstanding! Read less

The brochure states that Raffles welcomes you as we write a new chapter after an extensive restoration, breathing new life into the storied hotel. Our restoration was designed to ensure that we retain what is so special about Raffles – the ambience, the service, the charm and the heritage of the hotel. It’s all 100% true.

Wife and I had prebooked the champagne afternoon tea which was just what you would expect from Raffles. A good selection of sandwiches and pastries and a very good selection of tea's to accompany the food. All in all a worthwhile visit.

We had dinner in the Tiffin Room at Raffles, food was excellent, try the tiger prawns as a starter, you will not regret it. Our main courses had wonderful authentic tastes, food was served at what I would describe as at low to medium heat, the Chef will adjust for a spicer heat if you want authentic heat.
