Job Description:

Raffles Hotel Singapore welcomed guests in August 2019 after a careful and sensitive restoration breathing new life into its beautiful building. One of the few remaining great 19th century hotels in the world, the hotel is perfectly preserved both inside and out, giving it an intoxicating blend of luxury, history and classic colonial design. Its distinctive architecture, legendary heritage and iconic service continue to enthrall visitors where restored suites, new social spaces, restaurants and bars have been enhanced for discerning travellers. No visit to Singapore is complete without a stay here, where the grand historic hotel exudes old-world grandeur infused with the unique charm of the city state.
Guests can experience the modern comfort and amenities presented within 115 luxuriously spacious suites complemented by our legendary 24-hour Raffles Butler Service and a heritage tour of the property by our Resident Historian. 10 restaurants and bars present both local favourites, fine dining and collaborations with internationally renowned chefs and curated classics such as the iconic Singapore Sling experience and classic Raffles Afternoon Tea amidst the colonial charm of the historic Grand Lobby.
A rooftop swimming pool and state-of-the-art fitness centre provide a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city while the new Raffles Spa is a holistic sanctuary offering pampering spa experiences and renewed well-being. Guests are also invited to visit the Raffles Boutique to shop for gourmet gifts and heritage-inspired souvenirs and a revitalized Raffles Arcade showcasing an elegant mix of new-to-market, and world-renowned international brands, collectively creating a one-of-a-kind retail experience that goes beyond traditional brick and mortar shopping.
