First established in 1887 by the Sarkies brothers (famed Armenian hoteliers), Raffles underwent a 2 ˝ year complete restoration beginning in 1989 to recapture the charm and elegance of the classic hotel as it looked during its heyday in 1915.  Long known around the world as the “legendary symbol for all the fables of the Exotic East”, iconic Raffles Singapore celebrated its 125th Anniversary in magnificent style in September 2012. As your car approaches the stunningly beautiful Raffles at 1 Beach Road, a uniformed Sikh doorman will usher you into the hotel’s breathtaking lobby as well as a world of privacy and serenity.  Book a romantic Palm Court Suite room with 14-foot ceilings for your stay and be entranced by Raffles’ legendary service, colonial ambiance, period furnishings, teak verandas, and restful tropical gardens.
