Our two night stay at the hotel was just OK. The place was so grand but no character and empty! - The main lobby & other atrium lobbies were very large but did not have enough greeneries so they looked rather bare - Service was mixed - + The staff in the Atrium Cafe were very good, tentative & prompt;...

Our stay at the Empire hotel was fanastic. The rooms were beautiful, king bed, luxurious bathroom, very roomy and a large balcony looking over the lagoon pool and ocean. We ate at all the restaurants over the 8 nights and found the deli was the nicest. Lovely selection of food for lunch and dinner, yummy cakes, fantastic smoothies and coffee.... More

Went here for my brother's birthday. Living in Brunei this truely was an amazing escape and the food was exquisite. The artificial beach that blends into the actual ocean is wonderful and safe for kids, our biggest problem we kept finding new places to stop and take photos! Great stay, rooms were wonderful and comfortable.

We stayed in a deluxe room in the lagoon area of the complex. Beds were very very comfortable with down pillows and duvets. The... More

Whenever we have a holiday here in Brunei or even during the weekends, I would take this opportunity to take my family to stay here. The kids love to do water activities and the pool, the food is great (either at Li Gong, Spaghettini, the Pantai for seafood or even the Atrium for high tea). The rooms are really spacious... More
