From 2017, Raffles Hotel Singapore will embark on a careful and sensitive restoration which will be carried out in three phases. Phase One began on 13th February 2017 and areas that are now closed for restoration includes the Long Bar, Long Bar Steakhouse, Raffles Courtyard, Ah Teng's Bakery, the retail arcade and banqueting facilities. The Singapore Sling will still continue to be served at the hotel’s Bar & Billiard Room. To find out more on which event spaces are available, please click here. The other areas of the property operate as normal.
Phase Two will commence on 13 August 2017 which will involve restoration works on some of the hotel suites. During Phase Two, Raffles Gift Shop and 24-hour In-suite dining continues to be available. All dining experiences, including Singapore Sling, will be served at Bar & Billiard Room. As our spa, pool and fitness centre facilities will not be available, special arrangements have been made for our guests to enjoy these facilities at our sister property, Fairmont Singapore that is located just across the street.
Phase Three will start end of 2017 where the hotel will be fully closed. A grand reopening is planned for middle of 2018. To learn more about the restoration, please click here.
The restoration of Raffles Hotel Singapore is designed to ensure that we retain what is so special about Raffles – the ambiance, the service, the charm and the heritage of the hotel. It is also designed for Raffles Singapore to stay relevant and distinctive by moving with the times and with its guests and adapting to the changing needs of the well-travelled and Singapore’s community.
During this time, we will continue to deliver the level of service and comfort that is expected of Raffles in all remaining areas. It is our priority that our guests will be able to continue to enjoy their stay with us, receiving our best care and attention at all times.
