Recently a friend and I sat in the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel Singapore enjoying a legendary cocktail – the Singapore Sling. I was in awe for those few short moments thinking of all the world explorers before me that had visited this historic hotel. Even I had traveled here once before when I was a mere 18 year old traversing South East Asia and in 2015 in returned! Hotels can either become a lifetime memory or not. Raffles is one of those that welcomes our clients worldwide with that warm smile and superlative service.
When you travel as my client you always arrive as a friend, not just a confirmation number off the internet. Because we know the staff personally from interactions and meetings and therefore you arrive with preferences noted and arrangements in good order. Along with a few good surprises too!
For 126 years, Raffles has gone out of its way to give guests the warmest welcome, the richest experiences, and the fondest of memories. Today, the legend continues all around the world. From the classic colonial splendor of Raffles Singapore where it all began, to Dubai, Seychelles, Cambodia, Paris, Beijing, Hainan, Makati and Makkah, the Raffles name is synonymous with luxury, glamour and extraordinary adventure. Raffles hotels are an oasis of calm and charm at the crossroads of a civilization and are a carefully chosen destination in their own right. Each is uniquely, indefinably, sublimely Raffles.
Now, as Raffles grows and reaches new and sometimes surprising destinations, guests can rest assured that wherever in the world the brand travels, it will remain distinctly Raffles - infused with the same spirit of adventure, luxury and sublime service. Exciting and enchanting, refreshing and reinvigorating, Raffles is loved by those with an adventurous spirit and a taste for the very best. I'd be happy to share more about my visit to Singapore and the legend.
