Raffles Singapore has announced its reopening, following the hotel’s three-phased restoration which began in early 2017.
The restoration, led by interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud and supported by design firm Aedas, has created a refreshed ‘social haven’ with new suite categories, lifestyle experiences and exclusive dining options.
“The newly restored Raffles will provide an experience like no other,” said Christian Westbeld, General Manager, Raffles Singapore.
“It is our wish and desire that our guests will continue to create treasured memories at the hotel, while rediscovering what makes it so special – the distinctive architecture, heritage and legendary service.”
“We are very pleased to be part of the reopening of the iconic Raffles Singapore officially returning to the city, refreshed, reimagined and revitalised,” Jeannette Ho, Vice President, Raffles Brand and Strategic Relationships, Raffles Hotels and Resorts, commented.
First opened in 1887, and declared a National Monument a century later by the Singapore Government in 1987, Raffles Singapore has had multiple makeovers over the years. The last restoration was conducted from 1989 to 1991 where the hotel closed for two and a half years.
