Raffles Hotel Singapore that was closed for renovation has officially opened, though the property had started accepting guest reservations in August.

The hotel has reopened following a three-phased restoration, which began in February 2017.

Speaking about the re-opening, Sébastien Bazin, chairman and CEO of Accor said: “As the hotel concludes its restoration and embarks on the next chapter, the return of this flagship property to Raffles Hotels and 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.”

As part of the hotel’s reopening celebrations, Raffles Hotel Singapore donated the proceeds raised from the festival to non-profit organisation, Community Chest Singapore, benefitting about 80 charities.

The renovated Raffles Hotel Singapore offers all-suite accommodations, across nine distinct suite categories and the total suite count has risen from 103 to 115.

Dining options include restaurant collaborations with Anne-Sophie Pic, of the three-Michelin star Maison Pic in Valence, France; French chef Alain Ducasse; and 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 tradition of tossing peanut shells on the floor.
