Honeymoon resort information
Courtyard Suite58sqm Courtyard Suites overlook the courtyard – hence the name – and provide a stylish haven for couples with their separate living and study area, common veranda and gleaming marble-tiled bathroom with separate shower and tub. The bedroom features one plush king-sized bed or two twin beds depending on your requirements. Each room comes with a DVD player, free internet access and a range of services including daily turndown, 24-hour butler service and daily newspaper delivery.
Grand Hotel Suite
Personality SuiteAlternatively you may want to stay in one of the lavish Personality Suites, named after the illustrious guests who have stayed at Raffles over the decades. Each room features special memorabilia relating to the iconic personage for which the suite is named. Whether you are a fan of John Wayne, James Michener or Joseph Conrad, you’re sure to get a thrill from staying in one of these sumptuous retreats, which measure 60-79 sqm.
Presidential SuiteNamed after the most important figures of Raffles, there are two options of these suites; The Sarkles Suite and Sir Stamford Raffles Suite. These suites offer the grandest accommodation for guests, with a 24-hour butler, daily turndown service and complimentary welcome fruits – you will be treated like royalty!
Raffles guests can also opt to unwind with a refreshing dip in the hotel’s sparkling outdoor pool or burn off last night’s dinner with a work-out in the well-equipped gymnasium. Then there are always the lush hotel gardens in which to enjoy a romantic stroll or an hour of meditative reflection.
Ah Teng’s Bakery is a great place to go for an indulgent breakfast of fresh pastries paired with a cup of tea or coffee, and is also the ideal venue for a sneaky mid-morning snack or afternoon tea. Alternatively you can head to the Tiffin Room for a heartier morning meal; this restaurant serves up a lavish international breakfast buffet, followed by North Indian buffet lunches and dinners, punctuated by a decadent afternoon tea.
Meanwhile, for a tasty lunch or dinner of authentic Italian fare, you can head to Raffles Courtyard where you can dine al fresco among gleaming white arches and lush tropical foliage. Feast on freshly baked pizzas or hearty bowls of pasta and sip world-class wines brought to you in miniature terracotta anforas.
For drinks pre- or post-dinner, retreat to the world-famous Long Bar and opt for a Singapore Sling, or grab a table in the elegant Writers Bar and sip on champagne, single malt whiskey or perhaps a glass of rum.
