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.

Raffles is known for "You arrive as guests, leave as friends, and return as family." I have booked this stay before the lockdown is eased to get some respite from the busy work, and I, indeed, was welcomed back home as family, pampered through an Oasis experience, being upgraded to a Personality Suite located at the property's Courtyard Gardens. Sin Jie invited me to have a photo taken at the Grand Lobby before heralding me to suite - she was very nice and cheerful; afterwhich, my Butler Neesha gave me the orientation. True to the Raffles' spirit, service is a gentle breeze - everything was well-appointed and in place: they know whenever step out of the suite and when I come back the room has already been tidied spic and span. All my conversations with my butler were always followed-up immediately without the need to wait. Meals were served in-house and I salute the hardworking F&B team for delivering my food warm and correctly (with a few minor misses such as my pain-au-chocolat basket during the 2nd morning) on-time as scheduled, and explaining each course of the Heritage Evening Dinner and the Afternoon High Tea. With the reduced dining options, I really liked that residents can order from the Grab and Go menu, even with discounted prices! The different butlers - Neesha, Claren, and Ancy - would always ask if I needed anything and if everything was in place. Claren would even go the extra mile and had asked housekeeping on that very aromatic perfume that they use in the suite. Janice was very gracious to invite me to have an exclusive tour of the Raffles Suite and tried her best to answer the questions I have - I appreciate the time she spent on this. It was also a great privilege to have a conversation with Roslee when I spotted him in the Lobby. Being at the Pool as well, I was attended to by the nice Auntie and Uncle. Housekeeping also did a fantastic job in ensuring my suite is always tidy and everything in place - which is something is something that I am very particular about. As I had agreed with Roslee, the thing that keeps me coming back to Raffles isn't only the heritage or history that keeps it superlatively ahead of other modern hotels in Singapore but it is because of the "soul" that it has. More than the excellent hard product, the Hotel's spirit lies in its people, bringing alive the spirit of Raffles - as S. Maugham has claimed that it "stands for all the fables of the exotic East." To me these fables are about the charm, the hospitality, the intuitive service that makes its residents always feel at home. Read less

We were even offered early check in and late check out to accommodate my son's nap times. Couldn't have asked for more and we hardly noticed that none of the restaurants were open. Thank you so so much! Read less

Celebrated my birthday at Raffles and I was not disappointed! Smooth check-in with a personalised card and even received a small cake and some balloons in the room. Breakfast was extremely good as well. Overall, there's simply nothing that isn't top notch at Raffles.

Enjoyable stay at Raffles Hotel. Due to Covid 19 and for the safety of individual , hence, having enjoyable hi tea in the room followed by dinner in the room as well. You have a choice to seat outside your room and enjoy the serene greenery as well while having your high tea or dinner as well. Staffs are friendly and doing their best to accommodate and that’s makes the different when staying with them. Sun tanning at the pool deck is most enjoyable as there is privacy and less crowd. Relaxing , reading book and article. Would go back again when i can as there is lots of privacy in this hotel. Read less

I had an amazing experience. Luxurious amenities aside, the service was attentive, responsive, and fantastically friendly. We were celebrating our daughter's first birthday and the team surprised us with tarts, balloons, and a doll of the hotel mascot!
