Catch the production online or experience it at the property itself

If you’ve always fancied yourself somewhat of a sleuth, then this all-new, first-of-its-kind production by Double Confirm Productions, Raffles Hotel Singapore and Sight Lines Entertainment is sure to excite you.

Named The Curious Case of the Missing Peranakan Treasure, this detective whodunnit tale is an interactive, virtual play set against the backdrop of the iconic Grand Dame of Singapore. From Apr 1-Jun 30, guests may investigate the mystery through a purely digital gameplay, or embark on an unforgettable adventure through a suite of exclusive on-site experiences at the storied hotel itself.

Written by award-winning playwright Jean Tay and directed by acclaimed actor/director Hossan Leong, The Curious Case of the Missing Peranakan Treasure lets audiences take on the role of a detective to investigate the missing treasure—the crown jewel of the fictional Treasures of the Straits exhibition at the Raffles Hotel Singapore.

Filmed entirely on location at the Raffles Hotel with 360-degree virtual reality (VR) cameras, the production is able to offer participants a unique virtual experience through these immersive views and shots, plus surround sound and augmented reality choice-based features.


In this highly interactive format, audiences will even explore the hotel’s historic grounds and venture through its illustrious halls, all the while piecing clues together, and deciding how the story unfolds. So either catch this exciting mystery from the comfort of your home or experience the play physically at the famed property itself.

The latter actually allows guests to check into a spacious hotel suite, before heading to various checkpoints across Raffles Hotel Singapore on a treasure hunt through daycation and staycation packages.

To further enhance the experience, participants who successfully solve the mystery will also be awarded prizes ranging from e-vouchers to a luxe afternoon tea affair for two at The Grand Lobby. Moreover, all who are successful at solving the mystery will be entitled to participate in a Grand Draw for a chance to win a one-night stay in the charming Palm Court Suite.
