To be voted Best Luxury Hotel for 10 years in a row shows how we are constantly moving with the times and adapting to the world about us. To be admitted into the TTG Hall of Fame is a true honour and a fitting accolade and recognition for all our colleagues at the hotel who work so hard, every day, to provide what we like to call ‘emotional luxury’ for our guests. On behalf of everyone at Raffles Singapore, I would like to thank TTG Asia-Pacific readers for their continuing loyalty and for voting for us once again.”
