Raffles Singapore is now accepting reservations for guests to experience the new and expanded suite life when it reopens its doors in mid-2019 following a major renovation.
The hotel will continue to offer luxurious all-suite accommodations but with an expanded suite count of 115. There will be a number of new suite categories, updating existing distinctive accommodation with new amenities and technology while maintaining the sense of space and ambience.
Complementing a suite stay at Raffles will be a variety of social spaces and lifestyle experiences. This includes a refreshed Raffles Boutique, previously our gift shop, that will house a History Gallery to illustrate the heritage of Raffles Singapore.
The Arcade will also be home to new retail concepts and a brand-new Raffles Spa, a holistic sanctuary for hotel residents and the community to escape the bustle of the city.
Dining experiences will combine the hotel’s much-loved culinary traditions with contemporary dining concepts by renowned celebrity chefs. Each dining concept has been carefully developed to enhance the famed ‘Raffles Experience’.
These include Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse’s first Mediterranean sharing and grill concept, titled BBR by Alain Ducasse.
Anne-Sophie Pic, one of the world’s top female chefs with three Michelin stars, makes her debut in Asia with her La Dame de Pic at Raffles Singapore concept.
Currently, the historic Long Bar has been fully restored and recently reopened in its original location at the Raffles Arcade. Long Bar continues its proud tradition as the home of the Singapore Sling. Its refreshed décor retains its inspiration from Malayan plantation life in the 1920s, transporting patrons to the edge of a tropical plantation.
“The newly restored property will offer a reinvigorated charming Raffles ambience”
The pop-up Raffles Gift Shop remains open throughout the restoration at 3 Seah Street.
“Our careful and sensitive restoration was designed to ensure we retain everything that makes Raffles Singapore so special – the striking architecture, heritage and graceful service of the hotel,” says the hotel’s general manager Christian Westbeld.
“The newly restored property will offer a reinvigorated charming Raffles ambience, its legendary service as well as new and reimagined bars, restaurants, courtyards, and social areas; spaces designed to make Raffles the place to meet, spend time, dine, shop and celebrate.
“After more than a century of providing unsurpassed service excellence, we look forward to presenting a newly restored hotel with enhanced comfort and splendour for discerning travellers.”
Rates for a State Room Suite begin from $869 per night (suite only) for stays commencing 1 August, 2019.
