Full accommodation information

Maybe one of the most famous hotels in the world, Raffles Singapore is an institution conveniently located in the heart of the city.

Boasting colonial grandeur and a guest list to rival that of the Queen of England’s garden party, choosing this hotel means you will be keeping good company. From its beginning in 1800 to today, distinguished guests such as Rudyard Kipling and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made this hotel their home during a luxury Singapore holiday.

As you would expect from a Raffles hotel, the 103 suites across six different categories feel colonial and sophisticated. Each suite embodies a hardwood floor, large shuttered windows affording views out across the courtyard, gardens or city, plus a range of amenities to ensure your stay is comfortable.

Singapore has a wealth of attractions to offer, and the hotel’s convenient location allows guests to easily explore the city.

As featured in Crazy Rich Asians, when you want to stay in there is plenty of dining on offer, from a steakhouse to contemporary French dining. The Long Bar is the birthplace of the famous Singapore Sling, and no trip to Singapore is complete without trying one of these. Beside the lobby, The Writers Bar pays tribute to the literary geniuses that have walked through its doors, including Noel Coward and Rudyard Kipling.

For an über-luxurious and calming experience head to the Raffles Spa with its rejuvenating treatments and VIP room for couples.
