Well what can I say Raffles exceeded all expectations, this hotel has to be the best I've ever stayed in. The hotel is absolutely stunning, it's like stepping back in time, from the moment you enter the staff treat you like royalty, nothing is too much trouble.
We stayed in a Palm Court suite which was beautifully furnished, I didn't want to leave and can't wait to return. The hotel also looked lovely with all the large red bows covering the exterior and with all its decorations for Christmas.
Once inside the hotel I was surprised at just how large it is, with so many shops and restaurants to visit, from the outside it's very deceiving as it doesn't look that big.
We had lovely meals in Raffles Courtyard and the Royal China restaurant, and special thanks to Dave at the Royal China for taking care of us so well.
I know many reviewers previously have been critical of the Singapore Sling, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time relaxing by the pool sipping a Singapore Sling, they may be expensive but it's all part of the Raffles experience. I must admit it was the strangest scene being in this beautiful glamourous hotel, and then walking into the Long Bar and seeing this carpet of peanut shells covering the floor, that was quite a contradiction.
In my own opinion I cant understand any criticism of this hotel, the whole experience for me was amazing and I will definately return.
Thank you Raffles for an amazing stay!
