Perfect for pre-cruise forays, Citadines Raffles Place Singapore opens in the heart of the Lion City, delivering modern accommodation and the brand’s signature experiences.
The latest Citadines flagship property, Citadines Raffles Place Singapore recently opened in the storied heart of the city’s financial district, within the biophilic CapitaSpring development which integrates live, work and play spaces in a vertically connected environment.
Travellers would be hard-pressed to find a better location, with the Citadines Raffles Place entrance only steps from major commercial hubs as well as the waters of Marina Bay. The lobby proper is located on the ninth floor and shares the space with many of the property’s amenities (more on those in a minute).
Throughout the property, there’s a sense of supreme calm. My Studio Deluxe apartment is one of eight categories ranging from studios to spacious lofts with outdoor patios. At 20sqm, the Studio Deluxe is dominated by a queen-sized bed, and so no swinging of proverbial cats. However, the space is clean, modern and well-appointed, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering fascinating cityscape views, a flatscreen television mounted on the wall, and a cosy but functional bathroom. The kitchenette has all the basics, including a combination fridge and freezer, while deep-set wardrobes allow guests to declutter once they settle in. The wifi is laser-fast, the bed is superbly comfortable, and the rooms are quiet.
The new property also boasts more than its fair share of amenities, which range from a large outdoor swimming pool (a great way to beat the Singapore heat) and a Jacuzzi to lounge spaces, a coffee stall, a 400m jogging track and 50m sprint track, a shared working space, a modern fitness centre, a bbq area, and a laundrette.
You’ll also be able to enjoy a sense of place with Citadines’ signature programmes – activ∞ (pronounced ‘activate’) and For the Love of Coffee, which helps guests access the best of city living through a series of signature programmes launched as part of the recent brand refresh. In fact, activ∞ offers a curated programme – accessible through the Citadines’ activ∞ digital toolkit – that ranges from yoga sessions to networking gatherings.
