The hotel

Raffes Singapore has come to be known as one of the country’s most iconic landmarks. 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. 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 swimming pool and a lovely place to relax. 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. 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.

Spontaneous stop at the Long Bar, Raffles Singapore. Something we wanted to do and it was Sunday, about noon. There was no line therefore no wait. Walked in, sat down and had a couple of slings. Good drink, worth the price of having one, then moved on to something different. Bags of peanuts in the shell are provided for snacking. Patrons are free… Read more
Spontaneous stop at the Long Bar, Raffles Singapore. Something we wanted to do and it was Sunday, about noon. There was no line therefore no wait. Walked in, sat down and had a couple of slings. Good drink, worth the price of having one, then moved on to something different. Bags of peanuts in the shell are provided for snacking. Patrons are free to toss the shells on the floor upon opening the peanuts. We enjoyed the visit, the drinks, the peanuts and the atmosphere / vibe. Not sure I would come here frequently but it was a fun time. Very clean, comfortable and the decor is nice. We enjoyed the style of the fans along the ceiling and it was refreshingly cool break from the heat and humidity. Read less

This is our 2nd stay in the Raffles. The environment is very tranquil and cozy. It’s in the city center, but you won't feel the bustling around. The location is superb, just in the downtown area of the city center. The major tourist attractions and CBD area are within a few miles away. But the people here are the most important things that keep us returning. We can feel that everybody loves their work and is proud of it. We like to come here to feel the vibe. We signed up for the historical tour, and the resident historian, Roslee, who stayed with 33 years, gave us a superb tour around the hotel, allowing us to experience the history within the 137 years of the hotel. Thank you Raffles, for having us as a tiny part of your grand journey. Read less
