Why we like it
- A timeless symbol of colonial Singapore
- 103 high ceiling suites with luxurious décor reflecting the splendour of a by-gone age
- 16 distinctive restaurants and bars, including the famous Long Bar; birthplace of the Singapore Sling!
Elegant high ceilings, antique period furnishings and snug four poster beds make for sophisticated luxury living in the grand Presidential Suites.
In Laos, the guide added trips to the morning market and an opportunity to attend a shaman ceremony she heard about when we were in the village. I've seen some events, but I'll never forget that. I gather it's pretty rare to see it - the guide had only seen it once before.

A timeless symbol of colonial Singapore, Raffles has been updated and refreshed for the modern age. Its gracious legacy is reflected in the spacious, elegant lobby, Amrita Spa and the 24-hour pool, bar and health club. Its 103 high-ceilinged suites bring modern amenities and luxurious decoration to the splendour of a by-gone age, whilst the signature Presidential Suites offer spacious living spaces opening onto cool balconies.
Raffles is blessed with 16 distinctive restaurants and bars, including the famous Long Bar, the birthplace of the Singapore Sling. Our favourite, the Raffles Courtyard, serves Asian seafood cuisine in a wonderful alfresco setting flanked by soaring white arches and tropical palms.
