Singapore is a city, an island and a country. Its location, at the tip of the Malaysian Peninsula, makes it the true crossroads of Asia. In fact, it's a perfect place to break your journey when travelling on elsewhere in the Far East or Australasia. Shopping is a major attraction in Singapore, with antiques, electrical goods and clothes being excellent buys. Sightseeing opportunities include Chinatown, Arab Street, Little-India and, for panoramic views across Singapore and the southern islands, take the journey up to the top of the Sky Tower. The riverside area is one of the main venues for entertainment, with Boat Quay and Clarke Quay offering an eclectic mix of restaurants, alfresco dining, lively bars and jazz venues. And no visit to Singapore is complete without enjoying a Singapore Sling cocktail at the world-renowned Raffles Hotel Singapore, where the drink was created.
Stay in the heart of the city and yet feel ensconced within an oasis. Discover the colourful history of the hotel, admire the beautiful gardens and savour the superlative level of butler service. Savour the fine dining, sip the impressive wines, relax beside the rooftop pool or indulge in the spa.
Raffles Hotel Singapore
National monument, international hotel icon and creator of the world-famous Singapore Sling, Raffles Hotel Singapore's wide-ranging claims to fame seem neverending. This gracious Singapore landmark has attracted luminaries from around the world ever since it opened over 125 years ago, most engagingly reflected in its Personality Suites, dedicated to famous past visitors such as Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin, Joseph Conrad and Rudyard Kipling and complete with nostalgic memorabilia. With a choice of fifteen restaurants and bars to try and the pampering delights of Raffles Spa to experience, this grand Colonial hotel is a tropical oasis in the heart of a modern city, bringing together the best of old and new, east and west, all underscored by the superb service provided by its legendary butlers.
*Please note that the hotel will commence refurbishment work in January 2017 and will close fully from 1 December 2017 until late 2018.
