Book your stay at one of the most iconic hotels in Asia, the magnificent Raffles Singapore that will reopen for business after a major refurbishment on 1 August 2019

Raffles Singapore will have a major re-opening with all the fanfare in mid-2019, but guests can book their stays at this legendary historic hotel already. This follows a major restoration that includes upgrading suite accommodations and increasing the number of suites to 115. The hotel will feature new suite categories, new amenities throughout all suites as well as state-of-the-art technology.

Public areas have also been transformed offering a selection of lifestyle experiences. The Raffles Boutique has been refreshed and will house a History Gallery to illustrate the hotel’s fascinating heritage. The Arcade will be filled with new stores as well as a brand new Raffles Spa where guests and locals alike can escape the city bustle and be pampered with various wellness and beauty treatments.

Dining at Raffles Singapore has always been a most enjoyable experience. The hotel plans to up the ante and offer contemporary dining concepts by famous celebrity chefs to enhance the establishment’s legendary Raffles Experience. Michelin star chef Alain Ducasse will have his first Mediterranean restaurant, BBR that features a sharing and grill concept. In addition, one of the top female chefs in the world, Anne-Sophie Pic, who has been awarded three Michelin stars, will open a new restaurant, La Dame de Pic. Signature Raffles favorites will still be featured, such as the Long Bar, famous for its Singapore Sling and the Tiffin Room where curry is legendary. Raffles’ classic Afternoon Tea will continue to entice guests as well.

The historic Long Bar has already reopened in its original location in Raffles Arcade. The décor has been refreshed and is, like its predecessor, inspired by Malayan plantation life in the 1920s. Aside from the bar’s famous Singapore Sling, a selection of craft cocktails is also available.

If you’re planning to book a stay in the magnificently restored suites at Raffles Singapore, the hotel is offering a special Opening Package. This includes the services of a 24-hour Butler, a Singapore Sling on arrival, a welcome fruit platter in the suite and even in-suite dining 24/7. Upgrading the stay adds additional privileges including daily breakfast, $100 credit at the Raffles Spa every day or at one of the 10 restaurant options, a special commemorative souvenir from the hotel and late check out of 3pm.

The hotel is fit for royalty in its new incarnation. With this special Opening Package, every guest will get to experience the Royal treatment. No holds barred.
