Named for the most illustrious personalities of the Raffles story, the pair of Presidential Suites are the grandest hotel suites in Singapore. The Sarkies and Sir Stamford Raffles suites are located in the Main Building, overlooking the tranquil Palm Court and our legendary porte-cochère. Architecturally stunning, each comes with its own private verandah. The vast spaces – from the living room to the dining room and the bedrooms – are bedecked with carefully curated antiques and artworks. Functional areas include a walk-in wardrobe and your own personal pantry. Guests residing here enjoy 24-hour check-in and check-out.
1. The Sarkies Suite
The Sarkies Suite is named after the family that founded Raffles and managed it until the early 1930s. Hailing from Armenia, the Sarkies Brothers also owned the Eastern & Oriental Hotel in Penang, Malaysia, and The Strand in Yangon, Myanmar.
2. The Sir Stamford Raffles Suite
Aptly named after Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore, this suite honours the many achievements of this great man. Much revered for his foresight and talents, this British statesman, Lieutenant-Governor of British Java and Governor-General of Bencoolen was also an avid botanist, zoologist and historian.
