Somerset Maugham once called the Raffles Hotel the legendary symbol for "all the fables of the Exotic East". Other patrons have heaped it with lavish, if less poetic praise. Indeed more than a hundred years after it first opened its doors, Raffles Hotel is more legend than hotel and no visit to Singapore can be considered complete without stopping by at Raffles.

One of the world's great hotels, Raffles offers its present-day patrons a totally unique experience. Embrace history while enjoying the comforts of modern conveniences. Savour an exceptional tradition of hospitality updated with the latest and best facilities the world has to offer, and return with memories of a true classic that will last a lifetime.

Voted the world's leading independent hotel more than once since its restoration, the sheer splendour of Raffle's hotel's interiors never fail to impress. 

With over 700 exquisite pieces, Raffles has the largest collection of Oriental carpets in the world. The impressive lobby features three magnificent hand woven Persian rugs, and carpets are used to their best advantage in suites and public areas.

Each of the 103 suites at the Raffles Hotel Singapore is a veritable turn of the century showpiece with its fine carpets, antique furniture and original etchings. Yet equipped with all the facilities and modern conveniences that business and leisure travellers would expect from a landmark hotel.

Raffles Hotel offers ample variety in accommodation. The 86 Suites are charming showpieces for artifacts and period furniture. The 7 Grand Hotel Suites are a luxurious indulgence for gusts who want more space. The 10 Personality Suites named after celebrities who have stayed at Raffles - Charlie Chaplin, Somerset Maugham and Ava Gardner - to name a few, offer residents a unique opportunity to be part of history. The business wing with its own special set of rooms is equipped with every modern convenience for business travellers.

Raffles has a tradition of fine dining, carefully preserved by its award-winning chefs. The variety of authentic food is complemented by the gracious ambience of its specialty restaurants. The focus is on innovation and modern culinary trends are adapted with customary flair.

The legendary Long Bar where the world famous Singapore Sling was born and many a merry musical evening too.

The charming Bar & Billiard Room is the perfect venue for elegant afternoon tea or a relaxing game of billiards, and with its fine selection of cigars, cognacs, malt whiskeys, armagnacs, champagnes, ports and chocolates, it is a connoisseur's delight.

The Tiffin Room serves up an array of delectable Indian curries amidst colonial splendour and is the perfect venue for afternoon high tea.

Editors Note: One truly should experience a stay at this most amazing hotel at least once, the memories will cheer you and stay with you forever.
