Raffles Hotel in Singapore is indisputably one of the world's legendary hotels. Since opening its doors in 1887, Raffles Hotel has been home to many celebrities, from Ava Gardner and Elizabeth Taylor to the writers Joseph Conrad, W. Somerset Maugham and Rudyard Kipling. After Singapore surrendered to Japan in 1942, English colonials gathered at Raffles Hotel to dance and sing 'There Will Always Be an England'. To stay at Raffles is to experience timeless elegance, history, glamour and 'all the fables of the exotic East' so aptly described by Somerset Maugham.

After two and a half years of complete restoration, Raffles Hotel offers guests the ultimate in 21st century service and hospitality. Raffles Hotel's relentless pursuit of service excellence has earned it the coveted title of 'Best Business Hotel Worldwide' at the UK Business Traveller Awards 2009 ceremony. Other impressive recent awards include 'Best Hotel In Asia' for the third consecutive year by Ultratravel Magazine, a publication of the prestigious Daily Telegraph, also in 2009.

The 103 suites all have polished teak floors, high ceilings, antique furnishings, sitting rooms and dressing areas. 12 of the 103 suites have been named after personalities who were associated with the Hotel in its early heyday. One of the finest suites is the Sarkies Suite which is furnished with Chinese black wood cupboards and Tiffany flatware.

The hotel is one of Singapore's most famous tourist attractions, and many visitors simply cannot leave without having a taste of the legendary Singapore Sling at the Long Bar. Since its debut in 1915, the Singapore Sling, created by Raffles Hotel's talented Hainanese bartender Ngiam Tong Boon, has travelled the world and inspired writers and poets. With the opulent surroundings, and in the evening with the band playing in the background, the romance of Raffles leaves a lasting impression.

The service throughout the hotel is unequalled and it is often likened to a 'Gentle Breeze', where staff are sensitive to the residents’ needs; they are present when needed, invisible when not. It is compulsively faultless and sets the standard worldwide. Along with the service, perhaps the Raffles' brand promise 'Arrive as Residents, Leave as Friends, Return as Family' best explains why the hotel has legions of fans and returning guests.
