City Life

Singapore provides a rich mixture of eastern and western cultures. The city's skyline resembles the west, with a hub of international businesses and western skyscrapers, whereas the city's ground level is awash with eastern districts, including Chinatown, Arab Street and Little India. Venture to the Botanic Gardens or Singapore Art Museum, refuelling en route at the various Asian snack vendors. Food, as in much of Asia, is a national pastime and, with such a wealth of international dining options to discover, you certainly won't go hungry. Of course, you couldn't stay at Raffles Hotel Singapore and not experience the city's favourite (and most iconic) refreshment, the Singapore Sling. It  was, after all, invented in the hotel.

Health & Fitness

The superb Raffles Hotel Singapore Spa offers relaxing and pampering wellness therapies exclusively for hotel residents. The full-service spa features hot and cold dip pools, therapy rooms and unique couple rooms, as well as a gym and spa cuisine.
