Perhaps the Lion City’s most recognisable hotel, Raffles Singapore has been a major player in the luxury hotel game since it first opened its doors in 1887. Today, the hotel is the best it's ever been, thanks in part to its history of repeated, subtle innovations that have kept it at the top of the game. When electric lights and fans were invented, Raffles was one of the first hotels to implement them across its suites (there are no 'rooms' in the hotel – all lodgings are suites). In 2019, it completed its latest and largest renovation process that modernised the estate to create an offering in line with the 21st century luxe hotel market without losing any of its character. A stay at Raffles still feels straight out of the golden era of travel, from its infallible hospitality that starts with guests’ arrival on the gravel drive greeted by its liveried Sikh doormen, to walks around its polished teak verandas and interactions with its small army of highly personable butlers. Despite its central location, the hotel evades the noise and bustle of Singapore’s modern, busy roads lined with skyscrapers that perimeter it, ensuring any stay here is as peaceful as imaginable. Don’t leave without trying a Singapore sling from the Raffles Long Bar, where the drink was invented in 1915.
