“An homage to the days of the empire. Large suites with period features such as antique ceiling fans, floral prints and giant oriental rugs against a back drop of polished oak wood floors and muted tones. There are six restaurants offering worldwide, gourmet cuisine. A pool, spa, theatre and museum.”

Hotel Review

"While at Raffles, why not visit Singapore?" or so the saying goes. This establishment is an icon and is entwined in the history of this city. Not only was the infamous Singapore Sling (pronounced differently after a few of them) created here, but literary greats and royalty alike have wandered these corridors. From your arrival in the palatial lobby you will be greeted by attentive staff and a level of service that died out years ago elsewhere in the world. Spoilt for choice with dining options (there are six restaurants and several bars, including the notable Long Bar); opt for world class sushi at Shinji by Kanesaka, French contemporary at Raffles Grill and afternoon tea in The Tiffin Room (W. Somerset Maugham favoured a table tucked behind a frangipani tree in the gardens). Suites are spacious and all feature separate sleeping and living areas. Immaculate, the decor appears almost unchanged since the turn of the century with antique dressers and artworks. Book a Palm Court Suite for the veranda, opening out onto manicured lawns. There is a luxurious spa offering a variety of treatments (you could spend the whole day here and not even get half way through), outdoor pool, the Jubilee Theatre and even a Raffles museum. The colonial sense of glamour that this institution exudes shows no sense of slowing in the 21st century as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stayed here on their most recent tour of Asia.
