The Presidential Suite at Raffles Hotel Singapore
Suite Size: 2,798 square feet of classic, colonial Raffles Hotel Singapore charm.
Suite Specs: At Raffles Hotel Singapore there isn't just one, but two presidential suites—The Sarkies Suite and Sir Stamford Raffles Suite—both of which are located in the Main Building. We love having options.
Each suite features a large, private verandah overlooking the hotel's tranquil Palm Court and Raffles' iconic porte-cochère, and the living and dining rooms feature a curated selection of antiques and artworks, including a modern-style fresco by American artist Eugenia Pardue.
Whether you're travelling as a couple, a family or a group of friends, both presidential suites can be reconfigured to include one or two bedrooms, depending on guests' needs.
Suite History: The presidential suites at Raffles Hotel Singapore have seen some famous faces over the years, including Michael Jackson, Queen Elizabeth II, Bono from U2 and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge to name a few.
On the silver screen, The Sarkies Suite was featured in Crazy Rich Asians as the location where the movie's starring couple, Nick (Henry Golding) and Rachel (Constance Wu), stay when he brings her to Singapore to meet his family.
The Sarkies Suite is named after the family that founded Raffles and managed it until the early 1930s. Hailing from Armenia, the Sarkies Brothers also owned the Eastern & Oriental Hotel in Penang, Malaysia, and The Strand in Yangon, Myanmar.
Meanwhile, The Sir Stamford Raffles Suite is named after the founder of modern Singapore, Sir Stamford Raffles. His namesake suite honours his many achievements as a British statesman, Lieutenant-Governor of British Java and Governor-General of Bencoolen. He was also an avid botanist and zoologist, which might explain Raffles Hotel Singapore's love for all things green and lush.
