We stayed at the Raffles Singapore during our christmas holidays in Singapore. We were immediately impressed by the beauty and heritage of this exceptional property.
The Staff is extremely well trained. They managed to make us feel very welcome. Every demand was perfectly executed. But still you never got that artificial feeling you can get in top class hotels.
We saw Pierre every day all around the property during our stay. At first we thought he was a special trainee of some sort because he was participating in everything that was going on at the hotel. To our embarrassment we asked him whether he was a trainee at the hotel. After he replied in a very friendly way that he was in fact the manager, we apologized for our misconception. Perhaps Pierre could have introduced himself to us at the beginning of our stay, so we could have avoided this embarrassment for all of us altogether.
During our stay we also participated at the New Years Eve party. It was a truly memorable night! My only complaint was about the Music. Although the DJ was a very good indeed. At this level of luxury they could have hired a Jazz- or Big Band for the whole night to make everything more glamorous and classy. In my opinion nothing beats live music.
Im looking forward to be staying at the Raffles hotel Singapore again. Thank you!
