Ascott Raffles Place Singapore

Jun 26, 2017

Singaporeans are becoming increasingly aware of the value of the city-state’s rich history, which is why these days some of the hottest contemporary addresses pay homage to the past. In the 1950s, heritage building in the heart of the CBD was once the tallest and most prestigious in Southeast Asia. After much painstaking restoration, it reopened as the Ascott Raffles Place Singapore. Although the striking Art Deco façade remains intact, the studios and one- and two-bedroom serviced apartments sport modern amenities.
