Declared a National Monument in 1987, the Hotel has grown from strength to strength. With its restoration and re-opening in 1991, Raffles Hotel today stands as a jewel in the crown of Singapore's hospitality industry. In multi-cultural Singapore, it is not surprising that the visionary founders of Raffles Hotel were a quartet of enterprising Armenian brothers; Martin, Tigran, Aviet and Arshak Sarkies.
Raffles Hotel opened in 1887 in a rather somber-looking old
bungalow known as Beach House. It was named after Sir Stamford Raffles, founder
of modern Singapore. Topical suits and solar topi were as much a part of Raffles
Hotel's early style as bentwood tables and rattan chairs.
A suite at Raffles Hotel is an experience of absolute comfort and old world opulence. There are 103 elegant suites to suit every taste.
