Stayed in many hotels around the world but The Raffles in Singapore outshines them all.
First the concierge dept is excellent. I contacted them by email and was picked from the airport with no fuss at all.
We were met at the front door by staff and made most welcome. As our luggage was whisked away Abdullah introduced himself as our personal butler! He escorted us to our room and dealt with all the registration process. Never before had such a welcome to a hotel.
We spent quite a lot of time in the Courtyard bar/restaurant and the staff there especially Gemma were outstanding.
Each morning we breakfasted in the Tiffin Room and the staff were fantastic. Cecille looked after us there and also hosted the High Tea which is well worth experiencing.
The hotel was preparing for Christmas and the decorations appeared 'magically' overnight with a beautiful Christmas tree that had been shipped in from Oregon.
The Christmas and New Year celebrations were being planned and the menus were amazing. We plan to be there one Christmas
