Raf­fles closer to re­launch

Toronto Sun - - TRAVEL - — An­dre Ramshaw

Its very name con­jures im­ages of pith-hel­meted ad­ven­tur­ers and sway­ing palms, and now Raf­fles Sin­ga­pore is one step closer to a grand re­open­ing that prom­ises to rein­vig­o­rate its time­less charms.

The ho­tel in the city-state has opened suite reser­va­tions (raf­fles. com) for stays next year, ahead of its official re­launch in mid-2019.

Along­side the newly restored ho­tel, old favourites like the Sin­ga­pore Sling cock­tail at the Long Bar, North In­dian cui­sine at the Tif­fin Room, and the Raf­fles af­ter­noon tea will be re­turn­ing bet­ter than ever, ac­cord­ing to ho­tel ad­min­is­tra­tors.

The num­ber of suites will be ex­panded to 115, and will in­clude new ameni­ties and tech­nol­ogy.
