Raffles Singapore, re-opening in the mid of 2018

Raffles Singapore is currently undergoing a careful and sensitive restoration that is being carried out in three phases.

Phase One has begun in February 2017 and Phase Two has since started on 13 August 2017. While most of the hotel is currently closed for restoration, a selection of suites and the Raffles Gift Shop continue to be available. All dining experiences, including Singapore Sling, will be served at Bar & Billiard Room. As our spa, pool and fitness centre facilities will not be available, special arrangements have been made for our guests to enjoy these facilities at our sister property, Fairmont Singapore that is located just across the street.

Phase Three will start middle of December 2017 with the hotel fully closed. A grand reopening is planned the second half of 2018.

The year was 1887 when the doors to the Raffles Hotel Singapore first opened. Since then, this luxury five star hotel in Singapore has become an icon that epitomises the romance of the Far East – an intoxicating blend of luxury, history and colonial design.

Situated in the heart of the business and civic district, Raffles Singapore is a veritable oasis in the city. Its classic colonial architecture has been perfectly preserved and provides a stark but lively contrast against its modern-skyscraper neighbours.

Through the decades, liveried Sikh doormen have welcomed some of the most famous personalities, from writers to celebrities, politicians and members of royalty, such as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

No visit to Singapore is complete without a stay at this iconic all-suite luxury Singapore hotel. Each suite features period furnishings, lofty 14-foot ceilings and modern conveniences expected of a 21st-century hotel. Raffles butlers, legendary for their charming and graceful service are available to fulfil requests both ordinary and extraordinary.

With the Long Bar closed for restoration, the Singapore Sling will be served at Bar & Billiard Room till middle of December 2017.
