Named after Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of Singapore, Raffles has been a haunt of adventurers, movie stars, authors and journalists. Visiting writers included Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham and Noel Coward, a host of foreign correspondents, all of whom fed in the stories and legends, fact and fiction, which have clung to the hotel ever since. Through their stories, the Singapore Sling, Long Bar and the Billiard Room with its tiger, became familiar to people who had never even been to Singapore. Today, these stories remain and are relished.
Raffles Hotel is an iconic landmark in Singapore, and no visit to Singapore is complete without a visit to the Grand Dame. As many people travelled the world for pleasure and business, Raffles Singapore became one of the rites of passage of world travellers and “see you at Raffles” soon became a signature parting shot.
Continually ranked a top hotel in the world, Raffles Singapore has 103 suites set in lush gardens, luxuriously appointed accommodation, award-winning cuisine, exclusive shopping, elite experiences, unique attractions and, above all, the friendliest and warmest people. Guests will soon discover that every precious moment is immaculately presented with peerless service one has come to expect from Raffles and magical Singapore.
