First time in Brunei, so trying to get the best hotel there. They say its a 6 star hotel, but unfortunately, this is not the case. In the 3 nights we spent there, I could not find the light switch for the toilet/bathroom. There was a lizard in toilet, we called someone to clean it up, which by the time... More

The positive: The lobby hall is very impressive with all its marble and gold. Staff is friendly. The buffet food a the Pantai Restaurant was very good and (at least by Singapore standards) not expensive. The hotel has some serious and not acceptable issues with maintenance and cleanliness could also be improved: When we checked in the bathtub in our... More

My wife and I stayed at 'The Empire Hotel and Country Club' for five days on our way home after a 3 month holiday across Western Europe. We had no knowledge of the establishment prior as it was booked, sight unseen, by our agent and this was our first time in Brunei - as it turned out, we were delightfully... More

It was a nice experience. Amazing and clean place in a rain forest. Beautiful resort with good facilities. A suitable place for relaxation . I love it because it was so special trip and if I got another chance I will visited again. Highly recommended.

Beautiful room with a fantastic view. Stunning, large spacious areas, courteous service, helpful staff. Great deals during Ramadan. Take insect repellant. Don't feed the monkeys. Swimming pools are a great way to relax and unwind.

Few tourists actually appreciate the grandeur of the Empire Hotel. It offers a golf course, gourmet restaurant and the rooms are gorgeous! The arcade and bowling is a definite family hit and the gym is excellent. My wife also highly enjoyed the spa! Brilliant for families!

This front office charming guy gives that extra service with a smile, answered all our querries effortlessly, and he truly knows his hotel & its' history! I... More

I´ve been here several times already. It is just amazing to see such a place. The beaches are great, although on one trip I had red tide where the beach needed to be closed. Pools are insanely big and the entire area is amazing. The entry hall is super impressive. Breakfast has a very nice selection and a good mix.... More

This was my first visit to the Empire for over 12 years, and it hasn't changed a bit. That's probably a good thing and a bad thing... The service is still impeccable, the staff are so helpful, and the place is just stunning! The atrium/lobby area is built on such a scale that it's almost unbelievable. The views out over... More
