Raffles Hotel, SingaporeSingapore
The most famous hotel in Singapore, no other establishment epitomises the island’s colonial history better than Raffles Singapore. Named after Sir Stamford Raffles, the hotel was built by the Sarkies Brothers, responsible for other luxury hotels in the region during the colonial era.
Although Raffles Singapore opened in 1887, it continues to be refreshed over the years with August 2019 seeing its latest renovation unveiled.
The 103 suites retain a distinctly old world feel and feature separate living and sleeping quarters, high ceilings, whirling ceiling fans and charming furnishings. In the stunning public spaces, almost all of the furniture harks back to the 1920s and 1930s.
Dining is both extensive and world-class. Sushi is available at one Michelin-starred Shinji by Kanesaka; refined Chinese cuisine is served at Royal China; prime beef cuts can be savoured at Long Bar Steakhouse; and French contemporary fine dining at Raffles Grill. The Bar & Billiard Room also serves brunch every Sunday.
Despite the cliché of sipping a Singapore Sling at the peanut shell-littered Long Bar, it remains an enjoyable must-do.

Raffles Hotel is perfect for history buffs who want to soak in Singapore’s colonial past without sacrificing comfort and opulence. Opened in 1887, this beautiful colonial property sits on the original plot of bungalow land at Beach Road that once overlooked the sea.
