Following the hotel’s extensive restoration, we decided to take a look at the iconic property to see what Raffles Singapore has to offer for a relaxing getaway. From the legendary service to the comfortable suites and soothing spa facilities, join us as we find out why this elegant hotel could be the perfect spot for focusing on your own wellness once travel resumes.
The Raffles Spa brings the timeless elegance one would expect from such a prestigious property, representing a holistic sanctuary for guests to relax and unwind within.
Following the restoration, the new spa now features separate lounge areas for ladies and gentlemen, offering unique restorative treatments to leave guests feeling reinvigorated and energised. The spa’s private area features its own treatment room and facilities that can cater to special occasions.
Raffles Singapore’s collection of suites caters to guests of refined taste, featuring distinctive touches that embody the luxury design that the hotel is famous for.
The property’s 15 Palm Court Suites look out over the verdant Palm Court, one of the hidden gems you’ll find across this illustrious property. Located in the historic Palm Court wing, each of these superb 5-star suites is an oasis of peace and serenity where guests can take breakfast on the verandah, enjoy cocktails in the parlour, and relax and take in the beauty of this soothing urban sanctuary.
The Promenade Suites are a nostalgic tribute to the late 19th century when Raffles faced Singapore’s beachfront, with each of them being named for a prominent female figure from Singapore and featuring a parlour, dressing room, all-marble bathroom with stand-alone bathtub and walk-in shower, and opulent bedroom with a king bed.
For the ultimate taste of luxury, guests can opt to stay in one of two Presidential Suites – which between them are the grandest in all of Singapore. These architectural masterpieces each come with their own private veranda to relax on and enjoy views out across the wondrous cityscape. The vast airy interiors of the suites present ample space for guests to feel free and unhindered as they admire the carefully curated selection of antiques and artworks that adorn them.
Throughout a stay at Raffles Singapore, guests receive thoughtful and discreet service from the team of butlers, legendary for their impeccable standards and warm, gracious service. From in-suite registration upon arrival, to skilfully packing those extra purchases on departure, no task is too small for a Raffles butler, meaning you can relax and make the most of your time in Singapore.
Raffles Singapore’s culinary options complete the all-encompassing approach to wellness, delivering a fresh menu of healthy nourishing meals to guests to leave them feeling reinvigorated.
A staple of Raffles Singapore since 1892, the authentic North Indian cuisine served up at Tiffin Room has been enchanting guests for generations. Whether it’s the restaurant’s warm inviting ambience and tableside service by chefs, or the aromatic blend of freshly ground spices and sumptuous fare, Tiffin Room remains a favourite amongst guests to this day. As part of the restoration, wooden floorboards have been installed in the restaurant to recreate decorative elements that are true to its youthful days in the early 1900s.
The much-loved Bar & Billiard Room has returned after the refurbishment with one of the world’s most celebrated chefs, Alain Ducasse. At BBR by Alain Ducasse, guests are invited to be seduced by the flavours of the Mediterranean whilst on a culinary journey through its coastal regions, as they sit within the modern and vibrant ambience of this stylish restaurant.
After a day of relaxation and invigorating cuisine, the historic Long Bar provides the perfect setting to enjoy a peaceful hour amongst charming architecture and contemporary plantation-inspired motifs, as you sip a refreshing Singapore Sling.
