Inspired by the fabulous reviews on Tripadvisor (especially the one entitled “an experience not to be missed”), I booked a stay at the Raffles Hotel on route to Bali. From the moment we entered the hotel we were overwhelmed by the painstaking and meticulous renovation of the grand hotel to its British Colonial splendor, the exquisite flower arrangements, the charming linen napkins in the Tiffin Room, the scent of frangipani enhanced by Fragonard fragrance (the scent can be purchased in Raffles Gift Shop as a fabulous remembrance of your stay), the hundred varieties of different palms in the various gardens, the verandas, the courtyards, the Singapore slings and, above all, the extraordinary hospitality extended to us by all at Raffles. Our stay in the Palm Court (just a few rooms down from Somerset Maughn’s room) was pure heaven –especially after a 24 hour flight. It was truly the best hotel experience ever. We can’t wait to return.
