Raffles is on track to more than double its portfolio, adding a number of new properties over the next two years.
Later this year, Raffles will open a second hotel in Dubai (The Palm), along with Bahrain, Udaipur and Macau. Next year and beyond, the brand will debut flagship locations in London (2022), Boston (2022), Doha (2022), Jeddah (2022) and Moscow (2023), among others.
“Raffles approaches every endeavour with the utmost thought, care and discernment; our global expansion is no exception. With our pioneering spirit, we have sought out locations where we can really bring Raffles' gracious welcome and tradition of excellence to life," said Stephen Alden, CEO, Raffles & Orient Express. "Each new Raffles property is a destination in itself, and we are creating places where people want to be, in tune with our well-travelled guests’ contemporary lifestyles.”
In 2022 Raffles will make its debut in North America and the United Kingdom. Raffles Boston Back Bay Hotel & Residences is located in the heart of the Back Bay neighbourhood, while Raffles London at The OWO and The OWO Residences by Raffles will be situated within the Grade II* listed Old War Office building.
