WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

  • A Slice of History: Stories fill every corridor and room at the Raffles Hotel, and you can even choose to stay in Charlie Chaplin’s old room, complete with limited edition memorabilia.
  • Service with Style: The Raffles Hotel’s legendary Butlers offer unparalleled service, taking care of every need and leaving you to unwind and soak in the old-world atmosphere.
  • Michelin-Star Fare: The Raffles Hotel’s tastefully curated dining and drink options include seven-time Michelin awardee Anne-Sophie Pic’s take on contemporary French cuisine, classic North Indian fare served in copper tiffin boxes, and the nocturnal birthplace of the famous Singapore Sling cocktail.   
  • Old-World Charm: From antique grandfather clocks to beautiful teakwood dressers and all-marble bathrooms, the Raffles Hotel’s storied history comes through in every interior detail and fixture.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

The Raffles Hotel, located in Singapore’s culturally rich Bras Basah district, is an iconic, opulent hotel housed in a 126-year-old colonial monument. Set among palm and frangipani trees and surrounded by cafes, museums, and eateries, it is a centerpiece of Singaporean history and architecture. It has hosted luminaries like Somerset Maugham, Charlie Chaplin, and Pablo Neruda, and it’s soaked in the atmosphere and feel of the 1920s and 1930s heydays. The hotel’s suites have a distinct old-world charm, with high ceilings and antique furniture, and stories suffuse every verandah, nook, and verdant courtyard. The hotel’s service is unparalleled, with their signature Raffles Butlers attending to the whims of every guest with understated grace, and dining options include multiple Michelin-starred options, as well as the birthplace of the Singapore Sling cocktail. Rooted in Singapore’s traditions and yet strikingly modern, the Raffles Hotel offers an intoxicating blend of luxury, history, and classic colonial design. It’s a unique, boutique experience right from the moment you enter its majestic, teak-lined lobby.
