After a lengthy two year restoration, the legendary Raffles Hotel has finally re-opened its doors to eager Singaporeans and tourists. In the past month, the hotel has been offering sneak peeks of its new space. The new Raffles Arcade offers a new retail haven as well as new dining options, such as French fine-dining outfit La Dame de Pic. This time, its celebrated rooms are ready for bookings. Meticulously restored by acclaimed interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud and design firm Aedas, the hotel has thrown out the dated interiors and furnishings. Instead, Raffles Hotel now offers new contemporary living spaces while still dutifully preserving the colonial vibes of the iconic heritage site.
