We stayed in Raffles on a one night stopover enroute to Oz. Although very pricey we thought it would be a real treat and it most certainly was! The service was simply impeccable from arrival to departure! We were taken directly to our suite which was lovely and big and full of old world charm. As a treat for my birthday the staff brought 2 Singapore slings to our room along with a lovely birthday cake complete with candles. We were also lucky enough to be accommodated with a complimentary late checkout which was fantastic. This meant we had some time to explore this amazing city and also to pay a visit to the long bar and take a swim in the rooftop pool. All in all an amazing 1st class experience. We did this as a treat for a special occasion and although expensive I would highly recommend doing the same!!

The Raffles Hotel in Singapore is an institution, and we wanted to show it to our daughters. The Long Bar that created the Singapore Sling is an absolutely beautiful old bar. We ordered the drinks and did the traditional peanut shelling and discarding on the floor, which is bizarre and horrible to walk on. The one round of 4 drinks cost a staggering $128, but it was worth it for the experience.

Greetings from Raffles Hotel Singapore!

Thank you for visiting the hotel complex to show it to your daughters, it is a pleasant program to walk around the Arcades and the gardens. I am happy to hear that you stopped at the Long Bar for a Singapore Sling and that the experience was worth it. Please visit us again when in Singapore, maybe you would even like to try one of the other restaurants that we have?

Kind regards,

No visit to Singapore is complete without a visit to the long bar for a sling.

The Hotel is a magnificent complex .

Check in was lovely however when asked to wait at the writers bar be aware that the drinks are not complimentary and that nothing at raffles is for the budget minded .

All in all we loved our stay even though it was a little pricey .

You cannot visit Singapore without experiencing a gin sling in raffles. Lovely old colonial hotel..... Just as we imagined and cocktails to die for albeit a little pricey but you just have to do it!! Some nice pics for the album too.
