Raffles, The Hotel Redefining Luxury in Southeast Asia

Raffles Managing Director Christian Westbeld talks about the hotel’s restoration and its role redefining luxury in South East Asia.

Raffles Hotel in Singapore has been synonymous with luxury since it opened in 1887.

Raffles Afternoon Tea is a stunning way to spend an afternoon with close friends.

A recent mammoth restoration and renovation to this Colonial masterpiece costing over £150 million has seen it catapulted into superstar status with flawless modern rooms, ten magnificent restaurants, a luxe spa, a fabulous rooftop pool and interiors to die for.

The Interiors of Raffles seamlessly blend the best of modern design with the graciousness of the Colonial Building.

The Singapore Sling created in the hotel’s Long Bar is one of the world’s most famous cocktails, and Raffles High Tea is a highly sought after treat, and the ultimate way to soak up the luxury new interiors for a few hours with a glass of champagne and some in-house made cakes.
