Singapore’s heritage treasure invites guests and visitors to experience a new era of unparalleled luxury

(SINGAPORE, 1 August 2019) Raffles Singapore is delighted to officially announce its highly
anticipated reopening, heralding an exciting new chapter in the iconic property's rich history and
heritage. A flagship property within Accor, the world’s leading augmented hospitality group,
Raffles Singapore is now welcoming guests and visitors, following the iconic hotel’s careful and
sensitive three-phased restoration, which began in February 2017.

“There are few hotels in the world whose names have become virtually synonymous with the
cities in which they are located – and none more so than the Raffles Hotel in Singapore. The
newly restored Raffles will provide an experience like no other,” said Christian Westbeld,
General Manager, Raffles Singapore. “It is our wish and desire that our guests will continue to
create treasured memories at the hotel, while rediscovering what makes it so special – the
distinctive architecture, heritage and legendary service.”

The meticulous restoration led by acclaimed interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud was
also supported by Aedas, a leading global architecture and design firm. Together, the designers
created a refreshed social haven that delivers a compelling mix of culture, beauty and gentility.
Exquisite new suite categories, vibrant lifestyle experiences and exclusive dining concepts are
designed for international visitors and Singaporeans to meet, stay, shop, dine and celebrate.

Discerning travellers can expect new levels of unrivalled comfort and inimitable service with
enhanced suite experience, brought to life by the fabled Raffles Butlers, while enjoying the new
and reimagined spaces at Raffles Singapore.

Jeannette Ho, Vice President, Raffles Brand and Strategic Relationships, Raffles Hotels and
Resorts, commented, “We are very pleased to be part of the reopening of the iconic Raffles
Singapore officially returning to the city, refreshed, reimagined and revitalised. This is where
it all started and faithful to its roots, Raffles Singapore reinvents emotional luxury. As the hotel
concludes its restoration and embarks on the next chapter, the return of this flagship property
to Raffles Hotels & Resorts paves the way for the expansion of the brand as we deliver this
same level of unparalleled service and sublime experiences to new destinations in cities such
as Udaipur, London and Boston.”

The revitalized Raffles Singapore offers luxurious all-suite accommodations, across nine
distinct suite categories: State Room Suites, Courtyard Suites, Palm Court Suites, Personality
Suites, Residence Suites, Promenade Suites, Studio Suites, Grand Hotel Suites and
Presidential Suites. Residence, Promenade and Studio suites, are the three latest additions to
the hotel’s existing line-up. The total suite count increases from 103 suites to 115 suites.

Guests and locals will also delight in exploring the worldly restaurants and bars at Raffles Singapore, including restaurant collaborations with Chef Anne-Sophie Pic, of the three-Michelin star Maison Pic in Valence, France; venerable French Master Chef Alain
Ducasse; and Chef Jereme Leung, known for his innovative Chinese cooking. At the refreshed
Long Bar, travellers will continue to enjoy the hotel’s most famous cocktail, the original
Singapore Sling, along with the timeless tradition of tossing peanut shells on the floor.

Christian further added, “Raffles Singapore is one of the few remaining great 19th century
hotels in the world and its restoration has been carefully designed to preserve its unique
historic charm, while creating extraordinary experiences for our esteemed guests – a dedicated
commitment from all of us at Raffles Singapore and also from our owner, Katara Hospitality.”

First opened in 1887, and declared a National Monument a century later by the Singapore
Government in 1987, Raffles Singapore has through the years, gained both local and
international recognition as an oasis for the well-travelled. It is a national treasure among
Singaporeans who deeply value its historical significance and unique heritage. The last
restoration was conducted from 1989 to 1991 where the hotel closed for two and a half years.

Reservations for stays from August 2019 onwards are available for booking. For enquiries and
