Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“The grand old dame of Singapore has seen many a famous visitor in her time, from Somerset Maugham to Michael Jackson. It’s a beautiful place of white colonial architecture, lush pockets of green, and historic bars.”

Fodors review:

“In late 1991 Raffles reopened as the republic’s most expensive hotel and is now a glistening showpiece, especially from the outside; inside, antique furniture blends with modern conveniences.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Singapore.

Forbes review:

“The epitome of Singaporean luxury, Raffles Hotel Singapore sports a classic, colonial-style look with a stately white façade. Established in 1887 and painstakingly preserved in a 2019 renovation from NYC-based Champalimaud, it’s one of the world’s last-remaining grand 19th-century hotels.”

Telegraph review:

“Singapore’s grand dame recently emerged from a two-year facelift. She’s looking sharper and spiffier than before, while still retaining the colonial-era splendour that she’s known for. The 1887 property is one of the city-state’s most historic and iconic, as it’s named after Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of Singapore.”
