Surely one of the world’s best-known hotels, Raffles Singapore barely needs an introduction. Opened in 1887, Raffles is one of the very finest examples of colonial style and excellent service. The hotel offers an oasis of unruffled calm, yet sits close to the centre of Singapore and all this fabulous South East Asian city’s attractions.
Raffles Singapore is infamous for its all-suite accommodation. Every room in this iconic hotel is a suite rather than a stand-alone bedroom, offering large, luxurious spaces to truly relax in. There are plenty of nods to history in their names too. The Alhambra suite commemorates the first air-conditioned theatre in Singapore, while the Promenade suite recalls the late 19th century, when Singapore had a seafront. The Lady Sophia suite, meanwhile, is named for the spouse of the founder of Singapore - Sir Stamford Raffles.
From Long Bar to Grand Lobby
The Long Bar at Raffles is the birthplace of the Singapore Sling, which was created here in 1915. This gin-based cocktail has never gone out of style, and the Long Bar is the number one place on the planet in which to savour this classic beverage. For fine dining, a range of restaurants offer options including French, Mediterranean, Indian and Chinese food, as well as a steakhouse. There is also, of course, the Raffles famous afternoon tea, served daily in the magnificent Grand Lobby.
Singapore has it all
While no stay in Singapore is complete without visiting Raffles Hotel, the building is conveniently placed close to the city’s attractions. The Orchard Road shopping district is but a two-minute ride away via Mass Rapid Transit. HarbourFront is within easy reach too, as are Chinatown and Little India. Sentosa Island is a breathtaking ride away via cable car, offering a fun way to travel across the water as you take in 360-degree views of the magnificent city skyline.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
