Raffles Hotel and National Heritage Board Invite You to Take ‘A Last, Lingering Look At An Icon’

June 16, 2017 Luxury Hotels No Comments Email Email

Raffles Hotel and the National Heritage Board (NHB) have announced that ‘A Last, Lingering Look at an Icon’, a specially-curated tour and exhibition, will run daily from 1 – 12 August, before the hotel commences the second phase of its restoration. Tours will be available to both guests and members of the public, with spaces limited to 12 per tour.

Guests and members of the public are invited to walk through marbled hallways and delve deep into the illustrious tales encapsulated in this 130-year-old colonial beauty. Reminisce the hotel’s former beachfront and visit its rooms that had once welcomed famous guests. The exhibition will include a recreation of the accommodations of one such guest – writer and Nobel Laureate, Rudyard Kipling, who stayed at the hotel in 1889. The recreation is based on Kipling’s recorded remarks of his stay in his travel log that he kept.

In addition, the elaborate menus of the events held at Raffles Hotel over the years offer a glimpse into the signature of these events. Visitors to ‘A Last, Lingering Look at an Icon’ will learn about the history of Raffles Hotel – and Singapore – through the crockery and food served at the Coronation of King George VI, and many others.

The exhibition and tour is curated by the Preservation of Sites and Monuments and guided by its volunteers. Tickets are priced at $12 and include a delectable souvenir and are limited to the dates below:
