Raffles Hotel Singapore finally reopens this August offering a new era of luxury
Raffles Hotel Singapore officially announces its reopening, heralding an exciting new chapter in the iconic property’s rich history and heritage. A flagship property within Accor, Raffles Hotel Singapore is now welcoming guests and visitors, following the iconic hotel’s careful and sensitive three-phased restoration, which began in February 2017.
First opened in 1887 and declared a National Monument a century later by the Singapore Government in 1987, Raffles Hotel Singapore has, through the years, gained both local and international recognition as an oasis for the well-travelled. It is a national treasure among Singaporeans who deeply value its historical significance and unique heritage. The last restoration was conducted from 1989 to 1991 where the hotel closed for two and a half years.
The meticulous restoration led by acclaimed interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud was also supported by Aedas, a leading global architecture and design firm. Together, the designers created a refreshed social haven that delivers a compelling mix of culture, beauty and gentility. Exquisite new suite categories, vibrant lifestyle experiences and exclusive dining concepts are designed for international visitors and Singaporeans to meet, stay, shop, dine and celebrate.
Discerning travellers can expect new levels of unrivalled comfort and inimitable service with enhanced suite experience, brought to life by the fabled Raffles Butlers while enjoying the new and reimagined spaces at Raffles Hotel Singapore.
The Raffles Arcade has been newly outfitted with a charming Raffles Boutique and various bespoke retail brands. Guests and locals will also delight in exploring the worldly restaurants and bars at Raffles Hotel Singapore, including restaurant collaborations:
- Chef Anne-Sophie Pic, of the three-Michelin star Maison Pic in Valence, France
- Master Chef Alain Ducasse
- Chef Jereme Leung, known for his innovative Chinese cooking
At the refreshed Long Bar, travellers will continue to enjoy the hotel’s most famous cocktail, the original Singapore Sling, along with the timeless tradition of tossing peanut shells on the floor.
Reservations for stays from August 2019 onwards are available for booking. For enquiries and reservations, please contact Raffles Hotel Singapore at +65 6337 1886 or email [email protected].
