Raffles Hotel Singapore is the flagship property of Raffles Hotels & Resorts. Opened in 1887, it is one of the few remaining great 19th century hotels in the world. No visit to Singapore is complete without a stay at Raffles; tradition demands it.
A century after its opening, the hotel was declared a National Monument by the Singapore Government, after which it underwent a complete restoration at a cost of S$160 million. Today, its colonial architecture is beautifully preserved, allowing it to stand out from the contemporary style of its surrounding neighbors in the business and civic district.
ABOUT EAST INDIA ROOMS
The inspiration for the name East India Rooms was taken from Sir Stamford Raffles’ British East India Company, the enterprise upon which Singapore was founded in 1819.
The East India Rooms are a premier venue for banquets. Guests can meet, mingle and enjoy light snacks and refreshments in the adjoining Palm Garden before moving to the East India Rooms for special functions.
