The history of Raffles began over 125 years ago in a hot and steamy Singapore. Regarded as a colonial home-from-home by society’s most discerning and adventurous, it provided the backdrop for a multitude of legendary tales that have become ingrained in Singapore’s history…ever heard the story of the tiger that wondered into Raffles lobby in 1902?
As time passed the Raffles brand grew quickly, making its way to the forefront of luxury travel, and spreading throughout Asia and into the West. For us Raffles hotels are the very embodiment of what fine service is all about and a showcase for how a hotel can transform itself into a landmark within its respective city. Whenever we (are lucky enough to) walk into a Raffles lobby we always let out a sigh of relief as the feeling of ‘we are home and we know we are going to be looked after’ spreads warmly over us and it is this very feeling that has inspired us to team up with Raffles once more to bring you our latest handy guide; The Heritage Newspaper.
We are going to be featuring 8 of our favourite Raffles hotels from Paris to Manila, Cambodia to the Seychelles and back again. What really gets us is that the hotels are always adapting to what’s going on beyond their walls; embracing the latest trends and fashions from its surrounds whilst maintaining that high-end bespoke service we have come to love. Our new paper will not only be a handy city guide for each of the featured destinations but scan the QR codes on each page using your mobile device and we will keep you posted on exactly what’s going on in each location.
In the next few weeks look out for The Heritage Newspaper, available in print and online…
