This hotel is located on the costal highway and caters for business, couples and families retreats. Excellent golf, a variety of restaurants to choose from, a cinema, bowling and swimming. It has it's own private beach that has a variety of beach activities. Travelers tip: the hotel is on average 12 to 15 kilometers away from any major commercial area.... More

I stayed there for a three day conference and its difficult not to admire the grandeur of the place. I've visited this hotel 10 years ago but just for an evening affair, so I did not stay there previously. The hotel staff was always helpful especially getting around the place since it's quite spread apart, from the golf course, theaters... More

It's easy to read the reviews and look at the pictures, but nothing beats the experience of spending a night or two at the magnificent Empire Hotel in Brunei. With the flights from Melbourne to London on Royal Brunei Airlines becoming more popular, passengers could do a lot worse than stopping off at the 'Abode of Peace' for a day... More

I've been visiting Brunei for business for more than a year now and have frequent lunch and dinner meetings at the Empire. Although I've stayed here a few times in the past, on this recent visit I only made use of the facilities. First, the team here is fantastic. Everyone is professional and helpful. In particular I've had a lot... More

It's nice to enjoy the hi tea at the lounge with a fren or two and enjoy the scenery of sunset. Highly encouraged to pay a visit and the food were nice and the cutlery used gave a feel of being a royal.

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend and we really enjoyed it all! The hotel, in our opinion was created to house the Sultans guests, so it is gigantic! It has golf, movie theaters, restaurants, shopping, really anything you can think of is at your disposal. We were not upgraded when we checked in. The rooms are nice,... More

No hassle with check in/out. Having read reviews saying buggy is needed to get around the hotel, I was concerned about the size of the entire hotel. While it is true that buggy is provided for guests to get from one building to another, you must be prepared to wait for buggy to arrive for you. This will never work... More

Amazing as always. Went to the empire about 10 years ago and loved it. Now visited it again and it's still amazing. Stayed in the seaview wing - beautiful rooms and very quiet. Breakfast was good (not a huge choice though). Cinemas for $8 was great, bowling ($12 a game) and pool ($15 an hour) was good fun. Lagoon pool... More

The Empire Hotel - up there with the best in Asia. Built by Prince Jefri and brother of the Sultan, was meant to be his Royal Palace but is now a luxurious hotel. Stunning property with a 7 storey atrium of marble pillar and glass overlooking the sea. This has the wow factor! Rooms are large and comfortable with a... More
