H. E. Lee Kuan Yew visits the E&O Hotel

Lee Kuan Yew and Michael Saxon

We had the honor of a visit by His Excellency Lee Kuan Yew to The Eastern & Oriental Hotel and what a pleasure it was.

This gentleman oozes class and carefully selects each and every word he uses to articulate himself thereby making you feel very much at ease in his presence.

I had the wonderful experience of having a couple of private minutes with him where he gave me a little advice on the best way to educate my children for which I will cherish for a very long time.

It was an absolute pleasure to have this man stay with us, he was extremely polite, complimentary to our hotel and my colleagues and always willing to show faith in his people around him.

His calm and polite demeanor helped ensure that everyone around him were also able to stay calm and stress was definitely not the order of the day during his stay.

Your Excellency, we sincerely hope that you are able to come back to visit us as soon as possible so that we can have the pleasure of your presence again around our beloved Eastern & Oriental Hotel.
