Hotel Introduction
facadefacade

Opened in 1899, Raffles is one of the oldest and most desirable hotels in the world today. This spectacular hotel has won more than 25 awards since it's reopening in 1991 after a 2 year (S$160 million) restoration project that returned the hotel to it's original colonial splendor of 1915. There are now more than 8,000 pieces of silver & historical china, some dating back as far as Raffles itself, decorating the hotels interior.

Among the impressive facilities on offer are the Jubilee Hall, a nineteenth century playhouse, Raffles Hotel Museum, Raffles Culinary Academy, and The Long Bar, the home of the Singapore Sling.

Raffles Hotel, the legendary symbol for all "the fables of the Exotic East" was established in 1887 and is managed by Raffles International Limited. It is located in the heart of Singapore business and historic district.

Restored to the style to which it was once accustomed, the hotel features 103 elegantly appointed suites, 19 distinctive restaurants and bars, a shopping arcade featuring the best in regional specialties and international brand names, a Museum, Jubilee Hall theatre playhouse, the world class Amrita Spa, the Raffles Culinary Academy and extensive lush gardens and courtyards.

The most exclusive hotel in Singapore and perhaps Asia. There are dress codes in many of the outlets. But one night at this hotel is an experience in itself.

This hotel is the grand olde dame of buildings in Singapore, located on Beach Road, this former beach front property is now relegated almost 1 kilometre inland due to the land reclamation works. Nevertheless its location is within the colonial district where much of Singapore's colonial heritage lies.

Raffles Hotel is Singapore's most graceful landmark, whose charms now include a shopping arcade, a museum, romantic courtyards and a Victorian-style theatre, Jubilee Hall, a popular venue for film screenings and performances. Don't forget to have a Singapore Sling at the Long Bar or the Bar & Billard Room.
