Singapore’s Raffles Hotel: Remaking An Icon | Part 1 | Full Episode

In the heart of one of the world’s most modern cities stands an iconic structure synonymous with refinement, elegance, and service – unchanged for more than a century.

This is an exclusive invitation to this grand hotel in Singapore as it undergoes the most extensive restoration and renovation in its 130 year history.

We meet devoted staff – Bernd, the poster boy-handsome front-of-house manager who manages guests disgruntled by the construction work, and an exacting general manager; Roslee, the gentle and quirky duty manager; Kaeley, the bubbly assistant head of housekeeping; and Chef Pierre, a volatile Frenchman. The staff struggle daily to maintain the “Raffles standard” while the hotel is pulled down around them.

This is a never-before-seen chronicle of a beloved institution that is both a luxury hotel, as well as a treasured national monument.
