Awards and Accolades
RAFFLES SINGAPORE HONOURED
On 4 June 1992, guests gathered at Raffles Singapore to witness the unveiling of a plaque honouring the Hotel as a National Monument.
Raffles Singapore was designated a National Monument by the Singapore government in 1987. It closed for restoration and redevelopment in March 1989 and reopened on 16 September 1991, restored to its glorious first heyday of 1915.
The Hotel, returned to its rightful pride of place as the Grand Historic Hotel of the Far East, continues to attract travellers from near and far. A stay in Singapore without a visit to Raffles Singapore, perhaps to sample the famous Tiffin curry, high tea or Singapore Sling, would be considered quite incomplete.
