Presentation
Easily the most famous hotel in Singapore, no other establishment epitomises the island’s colonial history better than Raffles Singapore.

Named after Singapore’s founder, Sir Stamford Raffles, the hotel was built by the Sarkies Brothers, responsible for other luxury hotels in the region during the colonial era.

Although Raffles Singapore opened in 1887, its layout continued to be changed, with hotel wings, suites and other facilities added over the years.

However, it was the hotel’s new main building, designed by R. A. J. Bidwell of Swan & MacLaren and completed in 1899, which turned out to be the jewel in the crown.

An exemplary example of neo-Renaissance architecture, tropical touches like high ceilings and extensive verandahs were added. It boasted a dining room with a marble floor, electric lights and powered ceiling fans – a first for any hotel in the region.

It became the place to be. Somerset Maugham, Herman Hesse and Rudyard Kipling were just some of the illustrious names that spent a night or two under its roof.
