Developed in collaboration with GFH Financial Group, the hotel comprises 78 elegantly landscaped villas, each with private pools and spanning over 400m². 

Wellbeing and connection with the natural world are at the heart of the new Raffles property. A secret garden flourishes under the care of a palace botanist, who is on hand to host exclusive workshops for guests.
