Raffles returns after restoration

SINGAPORE, 5 August 2019: Raffles Singapore is back and bookable once more, effective this month, following a massive remake that closed the hotel since February 2017.

Opened in 1887, Raffles Singapore is now the flagship property of the international Raffles brand that is owned by the French hotel group Accor. Before the latest restoration, the hotel closed for two and a half years, 1989 to 1991 for renovations.

Reservations for stays from August 2019 onwards are available for booking now open. Agoda.com sells a double room in the courtyard zone at USD629 a night, including breakfast, free Wi-Fi. The deal allows guests to pay a week ahead of check-in.

The newly restored Raffles will be under the care of general manager Christian Westbeld.

Raffles Hotels and Resorts brand vice president, Jeannette Ho commented: “We are very pleased to reopen the iconic Raffles Singapore that paves the way for the expansion of the brand to new destinations such as Udaipur, London and Boston.”

Raffles Singapore has reopened with 115 suites up from 113.
