Raffles Hotel

Raffles Hotel is as well known as Singapore itself (well, almost) and every superlative you can think of for its grandeur and class is earned. The suites, many named after famous former guests, are sumptuous and service is courteous and friendly. There is excellent food and shopping galore and the place still captures the serenity of a bygone age.

Ritz Carlton Millenia, Singapore

What we love most here is that the staff greets you as though they’ve been waiting in happy anticipation just for your arrival.

It puts you in a great mood to enjoy the superb facilities, from the larger-than-average rooms with marina or city views, to excellent restaurants and all the modern equipment associated with one of the world’s finest hotel chains.

New Majestic

Boutique hotels don’t come much more chic than this. Old meets new in this heritage building, where the 30 rooms are designed by a variety of local designers and include works by local artists.

Truly amazing d6cor – and when you’ve feasted on the visual appeal of the rooms, you can dine in the modern Chinese restaurant helmed by an award-winning chef

The Scarlet

When The Scarlet opened in 2004 after a $45 million acquisition and refurbishment, it caused a storm in the up-and-coming Club Street area. Vivacious and uninhibited, the trendy 84-room hotel became a major attraction.

Textures and colours are matched in bold contradiction to provide a dramatic welcome.

The elegant, comfortable rooms, including five individually themed suites, are wired to the world.
