Raffles Hotel Singapore has officially re-opened following a careful and sensitive three-phased restoration, which had begun in February 2017.
Two and a half years later, the hotel which first opened in 1887 and was declared a National Monument a century later by the Singapore Government in 1987, heralds an exciting new chapter in the iconic property's rich history and heritage.
Raffles Hotel Singapore has through the years, gained both local and 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.
The meticulous restoration led by acclaimed interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud was also supported by Aedas, a leading global architecture and design firm. Together, the designers created a refreshed social haven that delivers a compelling mix of culture, beauty and gentility. Exquisite new suite categories, vibrant lifestyle experiences and exclusive dining concepts are designed for international visitors and Singaporeans to meet, stay, shop, dine and celebrate.
The revitalised Raffles Hotel Singapore offers luxurious all-suite accommodations, across nine distinct suite categories: State Room Suites, Courtyard Suites, Palm Court Suites, Personality Suites, Residence Suites, Promenade Suites, Grand Hotel Suites and Presidential Suites. Residence, Promenade and Studio suites, are the three latest additions to the hotel’s existing line-up. The total suite count increases from 103 suites to 115 suites.
The Raffles Arcade has been newly outfitted with a charming Raffles Boutique and various bespoke retail brands.
Restaurants and bars offerings now include collaborations with Chef Anne-Sophie Pic, of the three-Michelin star Maison Pic in Valence, France; legendary French chef Alain Ducasse; and Chef Jereme Leung, known for his innovative Chinese cooking. 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.
