Paradise - - Contents - – STEVEN JAUW WALUDIN

After two-and-a-half years of restora­tion works, Raf­fles Ho­tel in Sin­ga­pore has re-opened. The ho­tel’s colo­nial fea­tures have been re­tained in the multi-mil­lion dol­lar makeover, but it has new suites and new restau­rants headed by Miche­lin-star chefs.

As re­ported in Par­adise ear­lier this year, the ho­tel’s fa­mous Sin­ga­pore Sling cock­tail has a new recipe, bring­ing it into line with more con­tem­po­rary tastes.

The ho­tel has 115 rooms, in­clud­ing prom­e­nade suites that have sep­a­rate par­lour and dress­ing ar­eas, as well as 24-hour but­ler ser­vice.

The new restau­rants in­clude the el­e­gant La Dame de Pic with three-Miche­lin-star Anne-So­phie Pic at the helm, and the Bar & Bil­liard Room by Alain Du­casse. There’s also a Chi­nese fine din­ing restau­rant, Yi, by celebrity chef Jereme Le­ung ( judge for MasterChef China).
