Personality Suites

Somerset Maugham at Raffles Singapore Through the decades, Raffles Singapore has welcomed its fair share of esteemed guests. , some of which were closely tied to the hotel's storied history, including John Wayne, Rudyard Kipling and Noel Corward.

As we have commenced on Phase Two of our three-phase restoration programme involving restoration works on some of the hotel suites and the main hotel building, only selected suites will be available till 13 December 2017. During this phase, hotel check-ins will take place at the East India Rooms. Spa, fitness and pool facilities will be available at Fairmont Singapore, located across the road from Raffles Singapore.

Some of the Personality suites that remain include the following:

Joseph Conrad
The author was once a seaman who, on his last visit to Singapore in 1887, swung by to have a look at the Raffles, later describing it in his novel End of Tether as being “airy as a birdcage”.

Rudyard Kipling
An original Kipling autograph sits in the suite, a tribute to one of the greatest English writers who coined the phrase “feed at Raffles” during a visit.

John Thomson
A giant of early photography, this Scot once had a “Photographic Room” at 3 Beach Road, where the Palm Court wing now stands.

Noel Coward
The Great British playwright, novelist and actor’s first visit to Raffles was in 1931 and his last, almost 40 years later, in 1968.
