We had lunch again at the Tiffin Room to celebrate our anniversary and though there's been a change in the tiffin menu compared to our previous visit and the Soft shell Crab Masala was incredibly small portioned for the price, the wonderful service rendered by Sram with warm hospitality and attentiveness definitely made it up. Afterwhich, we hung out at the Courtyard and once again good service by Shivan who was very helpful.

Hotel's Favorite
Unlike the magnificent  Waldorf Astoria in NY, you can't just enter and have a look around.   The tall Sikh dressed doormen will prevent you from doing so.  There's a separate entrance for guests, who  use their  beautiful  leather room card to enter.  Check in is very VIPish. Taking you through the  divine hall entrance,  with peoole having high tea and a traditionally dressed harpist, you go to a private room away from the  reception area and you sit down on a very comfy armchair  to a  welcome drink and are then  taken to your room.   There were lots of "wow"s from me, since  walking into the main hall, in fact  right upto  my departure.       We were in room 247, with a balcony facing Palm Court and were lucky enough to have witnessed a wedding photo session just in front.   We were given thorough explanations as to the modernity of the beautiful, huge room and bathroom.   Using the ipod,  you can control everything that is electric.  Curtains included . The mattress was one of the most  comfortable  ones I have ever slept on.  A safe,  bathrobes,  slippers, daily beverages and fruit .... everything is present.  The furniture,  decorations and sheer beauty of the room and bathroom were a delight to the eyes.  The Japanese style toilet was most amusing.  As soon as you open the toilet door,  the lid opens and warms up.   When you're done , press on a button, choose the pressure and position, and you're washed.  Then dried. :)    Unfortunately the Tiffin room was closed, so we had dinner at the Chinese restaurant.  The food was delicious but the air conditioning was so cold (in spite of the shawl they lent me), that we ate up fast and went to the Writer's Bar.  Dylan, the friendly  barman concocted us a lovely personalised drink.  Breakfast was plenty.  You can order anything and everything,  all delicious.   The big pool is fantastic to just relax , with drinks and snacks.   The final touch of luxury was the Raffles limousine taking us to the airport. This is a hotel where one just doesn't want to leave, but work awaits at home.

Raffles doesn’t just provide a place for you to hang out with your loved ones, they seek to cradle you in their arms and sing a lullaby to hopefully put away your worries and pamper you in any manner possible. After numerous stays in respectable hotel chains, this is the first hotel that actually escorts you from the door to your room, their passion in showcasing the hotel’s features would curb your curiosity as they march you to your suite. There are picture perfect fountain, the extraordinary grand lobby, the corridor with all the iconic stars that visited raffles and there is your room, cautiously designed to carry the flavour of the heritage vibe that its crowned for. The renovation has done wonders as the room may remind ourselves dearly of the British colonial days, the comfort and technology equipped in the room would simply take your breath away. From my past experiences, hotels made aware of the birthday would provide a cake and perhaps some decors, Raffles sent 3 butlers to my room and sang the birthday song followed by briefing us on the facilities in the room, the welcome drink i am entitled to (iconic singapore sling), the turn down services etc; the turn down service was so sweet as they placed cups and water by the bedside with a short read perfect to coax one to bed in the dim lighting. I further experience the bubble bath service from my butler, the in room dining where the server parked his tray outside the suite and laid the dishes perfectly on the table, talk about excellent service. Absolutely everything were made to make me feel like i am a VIP or sort, even up to the point that i check out, i was reassured that they would provide a follow-up on tours that i missed during my stay. Nothing was missing from this stay.

Having lived in Singapore for 31 years, but never having stayed at Raffles Hotel, I booked a 2-day Staycation to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. My wife only found out what I'd booked the night before and was very excited. From being picked up from home in the hotel's limo, to our moment of departure almost 48 hours later everything was perfect. We had the excellent High Tea, my wife had a delightful spa treatment, there was a champagne breakfast on her birthday itself, we did the interesting history tour and the service from our butler, Mavis, was first class. When our two Singaporean granddaughters, aged 4 & 6, came to visit us they declared our suite the best room they'd ever been in. I don't think I've ever seen my wife happier; all of the staff made us feel very special and the hotel certainly lived up to its reputation, with the lovely architecture, the good facilities, first-class service and the sense of history.

Singapore, Singapore4 contributions
Amidst the slew of bad news on COVID-19... just when it seems the light at the end of the tunnel is no where near, an incidental stay at the Raffles Hotel cast a magical spell that reminded us of our glorious heritage, invigorated us and gave us a new lease of hope to stand by each other through good times and bad. A DESTINATION MEANT TO BE As the pandemic unfolds, it disrupted our business trips, work schedules and careers. Determined not to relent to the waves of pessimism, we decided to took book a staycation locally - in part to support the badly-hit hospitality industry, and also to rekindle our much-loved travel ritual that we missed. When the newly renovated Raffles Hotel announced a special staycation package, we knew there wasn’t a second option, it was meant to be ... Raffles. LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT Check-in was graciously granted early at 11 am. One knows he has arrived the moment he sets foot on Raffles Hotel. The white colonial-influenced main building, crescent-shaped gravel driveway lined with traveller’s palm and frangipanni tress, paint a charming image that is distinctively Raffles Hotel. Being seasoned travellers, we are very particular about two guest encounters that quintessentially defines a luxury hotel - one of which is a signature warm welcome. First to greet us was the Sikh doorman at the entrance. Dressed in his turban standing smart and tall in his traditional uniform - he eludes a reassuring sense of security as the gatekeeper to the property. He ushered us onto the red carpet, through the hotel’s doors. Magic happened... As we stepped into the main lobby, pompous classical music filled the air. Bustling traffic and skyscrapers faded off, giving way to a charming old world set somewhere in Singapore’s colonial past. Our eyes were greeted by a vast three-storey high lobby atrium, flanked by beautiful white pillars beautifully carved and adorned with palm leaf motifs. Natural sunlight sieved through the glass windows on the roof, illuminating the entire lobby and casting shiny reflections on the polished marble floors . At the end of the hall stood the grand staircase crafted out of dark solid wood and draped in luxurious carpets. Steps of the staircase resembled folds of an accordion that extended from the lobby to the top floor. The focal point that is hard to miss is a gorgeous crystal-studded chandelier suspended exactly 9 meters above floor from the roof. First impressions? We both agree it was love at first sight. Next, we were met by Amy, the Sales Manager, whom confirmed our upgrade to a Palm Court Suite - a privilege and gesture that we treasured. It was made even more special when we realised our suite was next to one once housed the legendary Elizabeth Taylor. WORLD OF MANY DIMENSIONS - A SURPRISE AT EVERY TURN We were swiftly ushered by the leading concierge through the lush green lawn and corridors. At our designated floor, we were greeted by our butler, Ancy. “Welcome home”, she said, as she unlocked the doors to suite 206. All decked out in tropical colonial style, the spacious and thoughtfully placement of furniture pieces, amenities made us feel most welcomed and comfortable... just like home! The suite was divided into a few spaces - the parlour, bedroom., wardrobe and bathroom. Each has individually controlled lighting, temperature and ambience. Just like a lady with different personas and temperament, staying within the suite offers an interesting experience in itself. A BREAKFAST FOR GENTLEMEN AND LADIES When one speaks of Raffles Hotel, the names “Long Bar” and the “Tiffin Room” comes to mind. During usual days, the signature bar and dinning room each draw long lines of visitors and tourists alike. Breakfast or tea at the Tiffin Room is an experience to savour. Situated at the main lobby’s left wing, The Tiffin Room has two seating areas - the main dining hall is seemingly true to the original interior style and was decorated in warm colours, rattan chairs, beautifully beveled glass and brass fixtures. Outside the main hall is an open area with a more contemporary look and feel. Each dish was generously portioned and beautifully plated. We were fortunate to have been joined by the Chief Historian - thank you for the warm hospitality and for filling us in on the hotel’s poignant history. AT EVERY NOOK AND CRANNY, A TALE TO BE DISCOVERED We rounded up our stay by taking a tour of the hotel’s main building. Armed with our mobile phones, we gave due focus and attention to it’s architecture and design. The vast atrium has so many exquisite interior design elements that offer varied perspectives depending on which floor you are and where you look. Special appreciation to Roslan - butler and epic story teller. He brought life to every significant piece of furniture and decoration. We truly enjoyed the stories, each told so vividly told that I could almost picture the scenes in my mind. I had a goosebump moment when he told the story of how the Sarkies Brothers discovered a house on Beach Road that they later redeveloped into the legendary Raffles Hotel. At one moment, the grandfather clock chimed, the song “A Fond Farewell” played on your phone and I experienced a goosebump moment. There and then, a priceless connection. Every journey and stay has to come to an end. The second guest moment that I particularly cherish is the “Fond Farewell”. As we walked the passage out of the hotel, we fondly took our final photos with the Doorman an around the courtyard. As we passed the hotel staff in the lobby, each of them said their appreciation and farewells. What originally planned as just a relaxing staycation turned out to be a epic trip down memory lane. We rekindled fond childhood memories of visits to the Raffles, and were pleasantly surprised to discover the rich beauty and kindness that Raffles had to offer. We left feeling immensely awed, proud to be Singaporean and to have experienced the Raffles hospitality. Rejuvenated, refreshed, revitalised, we are more than ready now to fight whatever adversity that comes along. As they always say about fond farewells... “Good bye for we will meet again”... sooner than you think... very very soon... this time, for us to return you a favour. Stanley
