DETAILED DECRIPTION

"To have been young and had a room at Raffles was life at its best." - James Michener. Declared a National Monument in 1987, the hotel has grown from strength to strength. The Raffles has 103 suites, dispersed over four wings buffered by fragrance-filled gardens and linked by breezy verandahs. Here, residents are pampered in an atmosphere of privacy and intimacy, with large airy interiors inspired by the colonial bungalows of the early 20th century - lofty 14-foot ceilings, fine Oriental carpets and original etchings. The Raffles has a complete repertoire of fine eateries, which now stand at 18, making it one of the most comprehensive food and beverage facilities in Asia. Located on the third-floor deck of the Courtyard Wing, the hotel’s 24-hour pool, jacuzzis, and health club are for the exclusive use of hotel residents. Gymnasium facilities and equipment include treadmills, stationery bicycles, a universal weight machine, sauna and steam bath in the gentlemen and ladies’ changing rooms. RafflesAmrita Spa at Raffles Hotel offers relaxing wellness therapy in the privacy and luxury of a grand hotel.
