Fourth time at Raffles, this time for a short visit, and it keeps surpassing itself. This time we got an upgrade to a suite in the main building, above the reception. It was 150 sq m, had two bathrooms, a pantry, a huge bedroom, a dressing room, a large living area, and a huge private terrace. All with five metre ceilings. Possibly the largest hotel room I have ever stayed in. Amazing.
Every other aspect of our short stay was perfect, from the in-room breakfast to flowers and champagne on arrival, dinner at the Long Bar steak house, a quick Sling and a walk in the grounds.
I have now got to the point that I travel via Singapore if I am in SE Asia, just so I can stay at Raffles.
