About the Raffles Hotel in Singapore
The Raffles Hotel in Singapore is one of the world’s most famous hotels and the building was declared a National Monument by the Government of Singapore in 1987. The Raffles Hotel opened in 1887 as a ten room hotel on the site of an existing hotel, the Emerson’s Hotel, which was created by converting a private beach house built in the 1830s. The entrepreneurs behind the creation of the iconic Raffles Hotel were the Sarkies Brothers, who were Iranian nationals who also established the Eastern & Oriental Hotel in Penang and the Strand Hotel in Yangon. Unfortunately, by the early 1930s the three Sarkies Brothers, pioneers in developing South East Asia’s earliest luxury hotels, has gone bankrupt and the ownership of Raffles Hotels has subsequently changed hands more than a few times since and is currently owned by Accor Hotels Group.
Being part of a hotel chain, and before that owned by a middle eastern sovereign fund, has not meant that hotel has been turned into a bland facsimile of its former self. Quite the opposite in fact. The Raffles Hotels has undergone three phases of renovation, the most recent one due to be completed in August 2019 has restored many of the original features of the hotel, including returning the famous Long Bar to its original position in the main hotel building. The Raffles Hotel is a great place to stay and an architectural record of Singapore’s history over the last century, particularly the period when it was a British colony and briefly under Japanese occupation.
