Raffles Hotel Singapore: Enjoy a Stately Staycation in Singapore

,

Opened in 1887, Raffles Hotel Singapore is the flagship property of Raffles Hotels and Resorts, and it is one of the few remaining nineteenth-century hotels in the world.

Want to learn more about Singaporean traditions?  The culture?  With all it has to offer, no visit to Singapore is complete without a stay at Raffles.

The hotel was declared a National Monument by the Singapore Government, after which it underwent a complete restoration at a cost of $160 million, a century after it opened. What makes it stand out among its contemporary-style neighboring civic and business district is its well-preserved colonial architecture.

Some of the most renowned personalities have visited Raffles Hotel. Among those who have succumbed to the charms of the five-star establishment are writers Rudyard Kipling and Somerset Maugham.

With guests like Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, George Bush, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge still choosing to say at the hotel, nothing has been changed when it comes to Raffles’ popularity.

As you enter the hotel’s main building, the lobby alone is enough to take your breath away. There is also an atrium that soars three floors up and is encircled by columns of white marble, which can also be found throughout the hotel.

Sunlight illuminates polished teak verandas that lead to 14 restaurants and bars, a shopping arcade and event spaces, and 103 suites during the day.

From providing a front-row seat for a good view of the nature in the tropics to paying tribute to its famous guests from the past, right down to being a museum of precious antiques and artifacts, a stay at the Raffles promises to be legendary in its own right.

Each of the 103 suites offers original 14-foot-high ceilings that hover over elegant period furnishings that exude warmth and character.
