Creative powerhouses like Noel Coward, Somerset Maugham and Rudyard Kipling. Royalty like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Presidents, fashion designers and rock stars. And now, you.
Everyone should stay at Raffles at least once (although regulars insist that once is never enough). So it would seem like a grand opportunity missed to stay anywhere else on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Singapore.
But it isn’t just the guest list that makes Raffles so irresistible. The hotel features a menu of exquisite restaurants offering food as diverse as North Indian curries, Italian specialities and contemporary French cuisine. Then there’s the Bar and Billiard Room, The Writer’s Bar and the fabled Long Bar where the Singapore Sling was created. And the impeccable, all-embracing service that has made Raffles a byword for ultimate luxury.
