Raffles Hotel Singapore
Raffles Hotel, the legendary symbol for all "the fables of the Exotic East" is a travelers paradise with 103 Suites, 18 distinctive restaurants and bars and an illustrious history dating back to the 19th century. Patronized by nobility and royalty for over a century, Raffles Hotel is more legend than hotel, and is one of the most memorable experience travel can offer in today's world. Declared a National Monument in 1987, the hotel has grown from strength to strength. With its restoration and reopening in 1991, Raffles Hotel today stands as a jewel in the crown of Singapore's hospitality industry, renowned and loved for its inimitable style and unsurpassed excellence in service and facilities.
In multicultural Singapore it is not surprising that the visionary founders of Raffles Hotel were a quartet of enterprising Armenian brothers: Martin, Tigran, Aviet and Arshak Sarkies. Raffles Hotel opened in 1887 in a rather sombre-looking old bungalow known as the Beach House. It was named after Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of modern Singapore. Tropical suites and sola topis were as much a part of Raffles Hotel's early style as bentwood tables and rattan chairs. Over the years the hotel has evolved into one of the world's most beloved grand hotels and welcomed innumerable celebrities, writers and royalty. Raffles Hotel is Singapore's most graceful landmark with a total of 103 suites. The charms include a shopping arcade, a museum, romantic courtyards and a Victorian-style theatre, Jubilee Hall, a popular venue for film screenings and performances.
