I was very impressed by the hotel. It's in huge ground with hundred of rooms but they are spread out nicely. The standard of the finish in the hotel is very high and as such the room was very nice, comfortable and large. The bathroom was very impressive and I had a nice sea view. The gym and pools were...

I used to live in Brunei and we frequently travelled to the Empire for weekends or stopovers. I was absolutely blown away by the incredible rooms, which were so beautiful and the bathrooms were beyond amazing. I remember one room we were in had the most enormous bath which looked out over the swimming pool and the sunset behind. The... More

The purpose of my stay was purely for business. My 4 night stay in Brunei was to be 100% contained at this venue, including all meetings & training sessions that I was giving. With that in mind, this resort/conference/hotel complex was simply splendid. My room had a firm bed with firm pillows just the way I like them. The desk... More

Stayed over the Christmas period and the place was amazing. Not cheap by the rooms are worth it. The buffet food was out of this world with quality, choice and amount. We would stay there in the future with out a doubt. The gold course is world class, movie cinema. Loved the place!

We stayed one night in The Empire and it was well worth the money. The lobby when you arrive is stunning, as is the whole of that building, lots of gold and marble and gives you feel of luxury right from the start. The reception staff were helpful ( make sure you take your passport or IC card as they... More

Travelled with extended family (4 adults and 1 child). Booked two rooms and stayed for 3 nights. Outside: Extraordinary architecture in captivating grounds hugged by the sea. Inside: Stunning lobby and interiors, and extravagantly spacious rooms. The hotel was perfect and relaxing for everyone regardless of age. Dinning options (lunch/dinner) were good. Too minor issues: We had a problem with... More

I had heard so much about The Empire Hotel that I needed to extend my stay a couple of days to see it for myself. Boy, I am sure glad I did! This is perhaps as close to Heaven on Earth that can be created. The setting is spectular looking out on the South China Sea. The facility is World... More

This is the Perfect hotel if you want to unwind, relax and watch beautiful sunrises & sunsets. The pool is huge with a separate kid's pool - extremely enjoyed by our 2 year old son. The hotel building is massive and majestic with beautiful structure and interior. The rooms are huge with marbled bathrooms. The view is to die for!... More
