Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Raffles Singapore is in a central location, and is a celebrated local landmark, with many attractions on the doorstep. To stay at Raffles Singapore is to stay at one of the most iconic hotels in the world. As soon as you are ushered into the elegant and tranquil lobby by the liveried doormen, it is clear why this hotel is quite so famous. With an intoxicating blend of luxury, history and colonial ambience, Raffles epitomises the romance of the Far East. 

Rooms at Raffles Singapore

Preserving the colonial splendour of a bygone era, the spacious and luxurious suites offer period furnishings, antiques and private verandas, and include a 24-hour butler service. Many suites gaze over the hotel’s charming courtyards.  

You might fancy upgrading to one of the Personality Suites, named after people such as Somerset Maugham, Rudyard Kipling and Charlie Chaplin, all who have helped to immortalise this legendary hotel. Th
e Presidential Suites, also named after distinguished guests, cater for utmost exclusivity - these are some of the grandest suites in Singapore.

Food & Drink

Housing an impressive range of bars and restaurants, it’s difficult to be at a loose end at Raffles. Enjoy an extravagant Raffles high tea at the Tiffin Room, or engage in a literary discussion over wine at the Writers Bar: a tribute to the famous writers that have visited the hotel in the past - Rudyard Kipling and Ernest Hemingway among them. And of course, no stay at the Raffles is complete without sipping a legendary Singapore Sling in the Long Bar. 


The hotel has a boutique shopping arcade, a plush spa that is a haven to spend an afternoon in, a rooftop pool and a Victorian-style theatre, and beautifully manicured gardens... you'll hardly feel the need to leave!
