Raffles Hotel Singapore has brought back its popular Afternoon Tea service following the renovation of the property’s Grand Lobby.

The hotel has been closed to guests since December 2017 as it carried out a complete restoration, and is scheduled to reopen in August.

It has expanded its suite count to 115 and added a spa, new dining options, and spaces including a History Gallery to highlight its heritage.

The iconic hotel was founded in 1887 and was the first iteration of what is now a luxury brand with properties in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. This week it announced that it would open its first property in Bahrain.
