Singapore’s most iconic hotel is a haven of rich local history. Opened in 1887 by the Armenian Sarkies Brothers, Raffles Hotel retains its 19th-century charm. 

It’s a treat to walk amongst the spacious verandahs and take in the gorgeous tropical greenery. Look out for the iconic Raffles doormen, complete with colonial-era costumes which date back to eras gone by. The Raffles Hotel is also the place to try a legendary national drink — the Singapore Sling, created back in 1915 by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon at the famous Long Bar. 

With previous occupants including Charlie Chaplin, Micheal Jackson, and Queen Elizabeth II, you can expect to be treated like a VIP, with 24-hour butler service and excellent staff who are always willing to share stories about the hotel’s rich history.
