ABOUT RAFFLES SINGAPORE: Opened in 1887, Raffles Singapore is one of the few remaining great 19th century hotels in the world. Till today, its architecture is perfectly preserved both inside and out, giving it an intoxicating blend of luxury, history and classic colonial design. Within its walls are more than a hundred expansive suites, framed by polished teak verandas and white marble colonnades, clustered around lush tropical gardens. Each is serviced by the legendary Raffles butlers and offers every modern convenience necessary.
Raffles Singapore is currently undergoing a careful and sensitive restoration that is being carried out in three phases. Phase One began in February 2017, with Long Bar, Long Bar Steakhouse, Raffles Courtyard, Ah Teng’s Bakery, the shopping arcade and our banqueting facilities closing for restoration. Phase Two started in August 2017, involving restoration works on some hotel suites and the hotel lobby. While most of the hotel is current closed for restoration, a selection of suites and the Raffles Gift Shop continue to be available with the Singapore Sling currently being served at the hotel’s Bar & Billiard room. Phase Three will start on 13 December 2017 with the hotel fully closed. A grand reopening is planned for second half of 2018.
The restoration of Raffles Singapore is designed to retain what is so special about Raffles – the ambience, the service, the charm and the heritage of the hotel. It is also designed for Raffles Singapore to stay relevant and distinctive by moving with the times and with its guests while adapting to the changing needs of the well-travelled and Singapore’s community.
