My wife and I recently enjoyed our 3rd stay in Raffles Singapore. We are currently stationed in Manila and felt in need of a few days away from it all. Delighted to say that the the standards and attention have been maintained at a wonderful level.
As a small example of the lengths that the staff will go to accommodate, on our first morning at breakfast my wife asked if they had kalamansi juice as we have developed a liking for this whilst in the Philippines. The senior waitress, a filipino, apologised and said no but would see if they could get some for the following morning. At breakfast the following morning we were greeted with a couple of glasses of freshly squeezed kalamansi juice. On further questioning it turned out the the senior waitress had got up early that morning and had herself bought fresh kalamansi from a local market at 05:00 in the morning before coming to work.
The room was a delight, we stayed in the Ava Gardner suite which was very quiet and delivered everything that we were looking for in a stylish getaway.
We will be returning.
There was some low level construction noise going on close to the hotel but the location of the room ensured that this was not intrusive.
