Raffles Singapore will be closed for renovation on 13 December 2017 with a planned reopening in the second half of 2018. Raffles Hotel is one of Singapore's most graceful landmarks. More legend than hotel, this luxury Singapore hotel celebrates a tradition of unwavering service excellence spanning more than 125 years.Immortalized in the novels of Somerset Maugham and Rudyard Kipling, Raffles Hotel, Singapore’s colonial-styled architecture and lush tropical gardens exude an atmosphere of timeless elegance. 5 restaurants and bars beckon, including the Bar & Billiard Room - new temporary home to the world renowned Singapore Sling; Tiffin Room, which continues the tradition of Afternoon Tea at Raffles and Raffles Grill, serving up the best Sunday Brunch in town. This luxurious Singapore hotel lies in the heart of the city, in close proximity to the banking and financial districts, Raffles City Convention Centre, Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre (SICEC), as well as leisure attractions including the casino at Marina Bay; the cultural sights of Arab Street and Chinatown and shopping at Raffles City shopping mall and Orchard Road shopping belt.

Raffles is still being renovated but the long bar is open. Had to queue up to get in. An overnight stay is over $1,000 per night. But in the Long bar they serve the very good Singapore Sling (at $32/glass) which was invented at Raffles and they give each table a free bag of

Dear williamslade, Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. I am delighted to hear that you had a great experience at Raffles Singapore with us and enjoyed our colonial architecture, unique atmosphere, and discreet service. One of the key points of our sensitive restoration is to ensure that we retain what is so special about Raffles – the ambience, the service, the charm and the heritage of the hotel. It is also intended to provide the facilities, spaces and experiences that the well-travelled expect. We look forward to welcoming you back when we reopen in the middle of 2019, to experience the same Raffles’ charming ambiance and legendary service and enjoy newly opened bars, restaurants, courtyards, and social areas. Yours sincerely, Christian Westbeld General Manager Raffles Singapore

The Raffles is a landmark of its own, and for reasons. Effortless check-in, helpful staff. The room was elegant, with that self conscious historic approach that makes the Raffles so pleasant. The Raffles has done some efforts to update, but - luckily - does not lose its

Dear TravelsAndVoyages, Thank you for the splendid review and I am glad that you have been a part of Raffles and its illustrious history. It is wonderful to hear that Raffles remains a favourite, and that you have enjoyed your stay and dining experiences with us. Indeed, the hotel is fully closed and undergoing a sensitive restoration to ensure that we retain what is so special about Raffles – the ambience, the service, the charm and the heritage of the hotel. It is also intended to provide the facilities, spaces and experiences that the well-travelled expect. The Long Bar has since been restored and reopened in its original location and we invite our guests to partake in the Singapore Sling experience there. Once again, thank you for your kind comments and I look forward to welcoming you back again when we reopen in the middle of 2019! Yours sincerely, Christian Westbeld General Manager Raffles Singapore

At the moment its just the bar that is open. You dont book just turn up. To avoid peak times, we got there about 12ish and there was not a long wait. But warned its not cheap

Dear andreahex, Thank you for your question. The newly restored Long Bar has reopened while the rest of the hotel is still under restoration and fully reopens in middle of 2019. The Long Bar is located on the 2nd floor of the Raffles Arcade from 11am to 11pm daily. Long Bar is currently only accepting walk-ins. As the hotel is still under restoration, we do not serve afternoon tea at the moment, but we look forward to welcoming you back to enjoy afternoon tea when we reopen our doors next year. Thank you once again for your enquiry, and I look forward to welcoming you to Raffles Singapore. Yours Sincerely, Christian Westbeld General Manager Raffles Singapore

Have to agree with Nick the 'pop bar' has been well done and is in the style of the Hotel - very quaint plus the staff especially the bona fide doorman are exceptional. We wouldnt have missed going there
