With a history that dates back to 1887, Raffles Hotel Singapore has had a long and colourful past – what with it playing host to a tiger, being the birthplace of a world-famous cocktail, and inspiring many a literary luminary, just to name a few highlights.
In recognition of this, the hotel has put together a suite package, The Raffles Experience. It will enable guests to learn about the stories behind its fabled façade, and come face-to-face with some of the most iconic locations within the hotel. Peppered with interesting elements such as a history tour and memorable meals at its restaurants, it promises to amaze and delight.
Start the stay by checking in to one of Raffles Singapore’s 12 exclusive Personality Suites. Each of them are named after an esteemed guest who has resided in the hotel, including Ava Gardner, Charlie Chaplin and John Wayne. When in the room, look out for the special memorabilia displayed within, linked to that respective celebrity.
But do not spend all the time in the suite (or out of the hotel for that matter). Another highlight of the offer is an exclusive one-hour tour* with Mr Leslie Danker, Raffles Singapore’s resident historian. Spend the time learning about the tales spun around and in the hotel, and ask him questions about its colourful past.
Thereafter, watch a live demonstration on how to create the world famous Singapore Sling which originated in Raffles more than a century ago. Also part of The Raffles Experience, it will be conducted by experienced bartenders, after which it is highly encouraged that the the beverage be imbibed.
No stay at Raffles Singapore will be complete without a meal at one of its tempting restaurants. That is why guests who book this offer will be treated to either the Executive Three-Course Set Lunch at Raffles Grill, crafted by Executive Sous Chef Mickael Le Calvez, or the North Indian buffet lunch at Tiffin Room, where curries have been served since 1899.
