Discover the Symbol of Travel and Oasis at Raffles Bali: The Traveler’s Palm

Raffles Bali, the epitome of luxury and hospitality, is proud to introduce the iconic symbol of our brand, the Traveler’s Palm. Rooted in folklore and carrying a profound meaning, this majestic palm serves as a guiding light for well-travelled connoisseurs seeking an oasis and direction during their journeys.

The Traveler’s Palm, prominently featured in the Raffles brand logo, embodies the essence of our commitment to providing a haven for weary travelers. Steeped in history and legend, this palm has been a symbol of refreshment and guidance for centuries. Folklore tells of its remarkable ability to store water in its base, providing much-needed nourishment to grateful travelers. Its leaves, naturally aligned in an east-west direction, act as a compass, guiding wanderers on their path.

The distinctive Raffles brand symbol, meticulously crafted in a single stroke by the renowned British penmaster David Horridge, evokes the elegance and grace of the Traveler’s Palm. This remarkable tree, once a welcoming sight for tired explorers, now serves as a beacon of reassurance for our guests, assuring them that they have found their oasis of luxury and comfort.

Upon arrival at Raffles Bali, guests are greeted by our dedicated colleagues adorned with a Traveler’s Palm pin. This symbolic gesture signifies that they have arrived at their true home away from home. It is a testament to the warm hospitality and impeccable service that await them within our walls.

To further exemplify our connection to this iconic palm, Raffles Bali proudly boasts two magnificent Traveler’s Palm trees situated at the front of the lobby and alongside the Raffles Bali signage. These living testaments to the spirit of exploration and tranquility invite guests to embark on a remarkable journey and experience the essence of Raffles.
