RAFFLES SINGAPORE: The Return of an Icon

Singapore’s legendary hotel has officially re-opened following a careful and sensitive three-phased restoration, which began in February 2017.

Raffles Singapore claims to offer guests unparalleled luxury and an exciting new chapter in the iconic property’s rich history and heritage.

“There are few hotels in the world whose names have become virtually synonymous with the cities in which they are located – and none more so than the Raffles Hotel in Singapore”, said Christian Westbeld, General Manager, Raffles Singapore.

The meticulous restoration has created a refreshed social haven, exquisite new suite categories, vibrant lifestyle experiences and exclusive dining concepts.

Discerning travellers can expect new levels of comfort and service, brought to life by the fabled Raffles Butlers.

Jeannette Ho, Vice President, Raffles Brand and Strategic Relationships, Raffles Hotels and Resorts, commented, “We are very pleased to be part of the reopening of the iconic Raffles Singapore officially returning to the city, refreshed, reimagined and revitalised.”

The revitalised Raffles Singapore offers luxurious all-suite accommodations, across nine distinct categories, and the total suite count increases from 103 suites to 115 suites.

At the refreshed Long Bar, travellers will continue to enjoy the hotel’s most famous cocktail, the original Singapore Sling, along with the timeless tradition of tossing peanut shells on the floor.

“We can’t wait to explore the rejuvenated Raffles Singapore”, says The Travel Authority Group’s Managing Director, Peter Hosper.

“The restoration of this iconic hotel certainly looks to have been done with extreme sensitivity to its past and with an eye firmly on the future”, he added.

First opened in 1887, and declared a National Monument a century later by the Singapore Government, Raffles Singapore has, through the years, gained international recognition as an oasis for the well-travelled. It is a national treasure among Singaporeans who deeply value its historical significance and unique heritage.
