A legendary hotel and a national monument, Raffles, which opened in 1887, is a tranquil haven of white, veranda-enclosed, colonial-style buildings with terra-cotta tiled, pitched roofs. It was once the venue for grand colonial balls and dances, and its guest list boasted such names as Noel Coward, Somerset Maugham, Rudyard Kipling, Joseph Conrad, Charlie Chaplin, and Michael Jackson. The cool, calm refuges of its courtyards, gardens, and covered walkways can still be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. There are some star features below that you should not miss.

Ornamental Fountain

Made in Scotland in the early 1890s, the 20-ft (6-m) high cast-iron fountain was donated to the hotel in 1990 and now stands in the Palm Garden.

Long Bar

The Singapore sling, the pink drink originally intended for women, was created in 1915 by Hainanese bartender Ngiam Tong Boon.


The lobby, home to the Writers’ Bar, features photographs of some of the writers who have stay at Raffles.

Raffles Hotel Museum

The museum imparts a real sense of history and atmosphere through personal mementos, artifacts and archival documents.
