Christmas is that special time of year when you can finally take some time off and make precious memories with your loved ones. At the iconic Raffles Hotel Singapore, your celebrations are transformed into extraordinary experiences. Whether it is a sumptuous meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant or a quiet but luxurious staycation, each moment is crafted to create precious memories.
Here are the different ways you can enjoy the year-end festivities in style – all at the well-loved hotel.
Indulgent meals with your special someone
Luxurious, well-executed meals at Raffles Hotel’s restaurants are par for course, but make it extra special at the Michelin-starred La Dame de Pic, which features chef Anne-Sophie Pic’s bold, imaginative cuisine set in an grand, elegant dining room.
Enjoy thoughtfully curated festive menus featuring seasonal delights like Sea Bass with Caviar and Monkfish from Brittany. Chef Anne-Sophie’s signature Berlingots, or pasta parcels complemented with mushrooms, pepper leaves and ginger, are of course, a key feature on the menu. Complete the meal by topping up for the wine pairing, which spotlights La Dame de Pic’s extensive selection of Rhone wines.
If you prefer Italian cuisine, make a reservation at Bar & Billiard Room, where prized produce like black truffle, Wagyu beef and fresh seafood take centre stage in multi-course menus. Enjoying dinner on Christmas Eve or lunch on Christmas Day? Treat yourself to a generous buffet spread featuring a free-flow selection of Italian favourites, champagnes, wines and cocktails.
For gourmands, a seven-course feast at Butcher’s Block – where hearty wood-fired items like dry-aged duck, A5 Saga beef and mackerel are the stars of the menus – will help set the right tone for the evening and celebrations ahead.
Joyful afternoon tea with your extended family
Nothing spells indulgence quite like having the time to revel in a spot of afternoon tea with loved ones – especially when enjoyed in the timeless elegance of the Grand Lobby at Raffles Hotel.
The hotel’s popular afternoon tea, now given a festive spin, features a spread of delicious finger sandwiches, handcrafted pastries and sweet treats – think mini mincemeat pies, verbena raspberry Christmas balls, salted caramel pecan roll cakes, and Evocao chocolate profiteroles, all elegantly presented on a three-tier silver stand. Then, toast to an afternoon well spent with a glass of Billecart-Salmon Champagne.
Lavish get-togethers at home
With a wide array of gourmet takeaway sets, a la carte festive items and curated drink pairings, Raffles Hotel will help you throw a house party to remember – all without you breaking a sweat.
For the ultimate shindig, opt for the Merriment Splendour takeaway set, which features highlights like foie gras terrine, bone-in gammon ham, 26-day dry-aged grass-fed cote de boeuf, artisanal cheese platter and two bottles of Champagne Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve NV.
Complete the party setup with stunning table centrepieces, elegant wreaths, and bespoke floral arrangements – all conveniently available from the Floral Boutique at Raffles Hotel.
You can even get your Christmas shopping for everyone on your guest list done at the hotel. Take your pick from a specially curated selection of gift ideas, hampers and gourmet treats put together by Raffles Boutique.
For the friends with young children, you can’t go wrong with a plush Raffles Tiger soft toy or the Raffles History Kids Set with a colouring book. Home and living gift ideas like the newly launched Raffles Advent Calendar and Christmas Tea Set will make for a classy addition to your festive gifting, while the Yuletide Magic Hamper, filled with an array of Christmas treats like stollen, cookies and chocolates will surely be a scene-stealer at any gathering you attend.
A quiet and luxurious staycation
When all the celebrations are done and dusted, slow down and spend quality time with those nearest and dearest to you with a deeply relaxing staycation at Raffles Hotel.
Stay at least two nights with the Festive Suite Indulgence staycation, and you get to enjoy $300 daily hotel credit at the hotel’s restaurants, Raffles Spa and Raffles Boutique.
This is your cue to book a spa treatment and get thoroughly pampered with the Festive Glow by Biologique Recherche, a facial and body exfoliation treatment combo or the Raffles SPA’kle, which combines a soothing hot stone massage and bespoke facial. Just the thing to kickstart your new year on the right note.
