Declared a National Monument in 1987, the Raffles Hotel (5*) today stands as a jewel in the crown of Singapore's hospitality industry, renowned and loved for its inimitable style and unsurpassed excellence in service and facilities. In multicultural Singapore it is not surprising that the visionary founders of Raffles Hotel were a quartet of enterprising Armenian brothers. Raffles Hotel opened in 1887 in a rather somber-looking old bungalow known as the Beach House. It was named after Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore. Tropical suites and sola topis were as much a part of Raffles Hotel's early style as bentwood tables and rattan chairs. Over the years the hotel has evolved into one of the world's most beloved grand hotels and welcomed innumerable celebrities, writers and royalty.
Raffles Hotel is Singapore's most graceful landmark, whose charms now include a shopping arcade, a museum, romantic courtyards and a Victorian-style theatre, Jubilee Hall, a popular venue for film screenings and performances. Savour a a Singapore Sling at the legendary Long Bar, where the world renown cocktail originated from. Raffles Hotel is located in the heart of Singapore's business and civic district, just 20 minutes from Changi Airport and a two-minute ride on the Mass Rapid Transit (train) from the bustling Orchard Road shopping strip. Raffles Hotel is within walking distance to Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre.
The Courtyard Suites are among the lush flora of the hotel, lending these suites an unmatched ambience of tranquility. The Palm Court Suites borders one side of the Hotel’s main building, with ample walkways of crushed pebbles and rows of tall palm trees lining the sides of the exclusive garden. Each of the Courtyard and Palm Court Suites are divided into 4 areas: A parlour & dining area lead into the bedroom and on to the dressing area and en-suite bathroom. Elegant period furnishings including Oriental carpets are arranged on teakwood flooring.
