Having emerged not so long ago from a two-year facelift, this grand dame of Asian hotels remains as good as it's always been through its long and illustrious history.
Welcoming travellers for over a century, this all-suite hotel boasts 115 supremely spacious suites, starting with 46-square-metre Studio Suites situated above the three-storey lobby and moving all the way up to Grand Hotel Suites and Presidential Suites, some of the grandest in Singapore. All suites come with a dedicated butler on call 24/7, ready to help you pack or unpack, serve coffee, tea or cocktails, or make you a reservation at one of the hotel’s restaurants. These include Butcher’s Block, a vibrant steakhouse focusing on the world’s finest cuts of meat, and three-Michelin-star chef Anne-Sophie Pic’s debut Asian restaurant, La Dame de Pic.
Other standout facilities include the swanky shops of the Raffles Arcade, a rooftop swimming pool, a cutting-edge spa and of course the Long Bar, where the Singapore Sling was first created by a Raffles bartender in 1915.
