8. Raffles Udaipur

Set to open in 2020, Raffles Udaipur will be the first Raffles for India. India is cheap. It is one of the cheapest destinations in Asia for luxury hotels so when compared to Raffles hotels in the rest of the world, this hotel will be cheap.

Often referred to as the “Venice of the East’ Udaipur is located in the western state of Rajasthan, famous for its rich cultural heritage, lakes, temples, and palaces. Raffles Udaipur will be a truly palatial hotel, occupying its own private island in the middle of picturesque Udai Sagar Lake. With 101 luxurious suites, Raffles Udaipur will feature the famous Raffles Long Bar and Writers Bar, a 1100sqm Raffles Spa, a rooftop restaurant, swimming pool, and sprawling gardens. With spectacular vistas of the lake, hillside, and neighboring 400-year-old temple, Raffles Udaipur will quickly become one of the most distinguished addresses in India.

9. Raffles Jaipur

Raffles Jaipur will be one of the most exclusive Raffles in the world, with just 50 suites, all with private pools. While it will be exclusive, India is a cheap place to go on holiday and we would expect this hotel to reflect the cheap prices in this hectic country.

It will be strategically located as part of the popular Golden Triangle tourist route, which includes Jaipur, New Delhi, and Agra. Slated to open in 2022, it will bring new levels of discreet service and facilities to one of India’s most beautiful cities.

10. Raffles Bali

Located in Jimbaran Bay and perched on a hill, when it opens, Raffles Bali will offer unparalleled ocean views. Bali also tends to be a relatively cheap location for vacationing in Asia, so we expect the price of the hotel rooms at Raffles Bali to be cheap, certainly compared to places like London, the Maldives, and Seychelles.

Raffles Bali will comprise just 32 private villas, each with its own private pool, for the ultimate in luxurious seclusion. Owned by PT Jimbaran Greenhill, the resort has been designed to blend seamlessly with its tropical surroundings.

11. Raffles Singapore

The year was 1887 when the doors to the Raffles Singapore first opened. Since then, this luxury five-star hotel in Singapore has become an icon that epitomizes the romance of the Far East – an intoxicating blend of luxury, history, and colonial design.

This is also one of the cheapest Raffles hotels in the world (although be under no illusion this hotel is not cheap, it is just cheaper than Raffles hotels like the Paris, Seychelles, and Maldives Raffles hotels and resorts). On Sunday 16th Feb 2020 the rate is $706 per room per night.

Situated in the heart of the business and civic district, Raffles Singapore is a veritable oasis in the city. Its classic colonial architecture has been perfectly preserved and provides a stark but lively contrast against its modern-skyscraper neighbors.

Through the decades, liveried Sikh doormen have welcomed some of the most famous personalities, from writers to celebrities, politicians, and members of royalty, such as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Today it has a resident historian who has created a series of videos featuring key moments from its past (early guests included the writers Joseph Conrad, Somerset Maugham, and Rudyard Kipling).

Raffles Singapore has only recently reopened for guest stays following more than two years of renovation work across its guest rooms and public spaces.

The new works were led by interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud, architecture and design firm Aedas, lighting consultants Tino Kwan and restoration and research consultants Studio Lapis.

The hotel’s suite count has increased from 103 to 115, while new categories have been added; it now offers State Room Suites, Courtyard Suites, Palm Court Suites, Personality Suites, Residence Suites, Promenade Suites, Grand Hotel Suites and Presidential Suites.

The Raffles Arcade, a collection of shops and “lifestyle spaces”, has a new gift shop, spa, and retail brands as well as a history gallery featuring archive pictures and stories.

The restaurant line-up now includes Mediterranean grill BBR by chef Alain Ducasse, steakhouse Butcher’s Block, three-Michelin star chef Anne-Sophie Pic’s La Dame de Pic, Chinese restaurant 兿 yì by Jereme Leung, and classic Indian restaurant Tiffin Room.

In July the hotel reopened its famed Long Bar, a popular tourist spot thanks to its invention of the Singapore Sling, and the Grand Lobby, which has a daily afternoon tea service.

Even the pool on the rooftop has been renovated, with the huge Marina Bay Sands building visible in the distance.

Some of the best rooms are the 31 suites lead onto the Verandah. These are 58 sqm and ensuite bathrooms have been redesigned with Victorian details and Peranakan tiles, a type of colorful local ceramic.

No visit to Singapore is complete without a stay at this iconic all-suite luxury Singapore hotel. Each suite features period furnishings, lofty 14-foot ceilings, and modern conveniences expected of a 21st-century hotel. Raffles butlers, legendary for their charming and graceful service are available to fulfill requests both ordinary and extraordinary.

What About Promo Codes On The Raffles Website

There is a box on the Raffles website that says promo code. This may be related to senior, government, military, friends and family, residence club or hotel staff rates, but I have yet to find any promo code that works for usual guests at Raffles hotels.

The only way to find quick-fix discounts and special offers page on each individual hotel website. You can get all the benefits outlined above in addition to these special offers and promo code rates by booking your stay with our luxury travel concierge. This will get you the best deal possible, plus our direct contacts with staff at each hotel will ensure VIP treatment throughout your stay.

And what is the most Expensive Raffles Hotel?
