I've been in this hotel for many times during the last three years, because it's the only one in Brunei in terms of hotels and Resorts. - it is on big territory, with beautiful sea view and landscaping. - many huge buildings with variety of amazing facilities. - spacious rooms. - many restaurants with international cuisines, but the need to...

In terms of infrastructure, one almost has nothing to complain about. Once we entered the hotel building, “opulence” was the word that immediately came to mind. The place is huge, the rooms are very spacious, and the fittings in the building and room almost have “luxury” stamped on them. It has a large swimming pool (it offers a good view... More

This is, quite simply, the finest hotel or resort we have stayed at during our Asia trip. Luxury room, wonderful seaview, friendly people, classy architecture... The breakfast buffet was delicious and Pantai Restaurant is the best choice around. Highly recommended.

This was our 1st visit to Brunei. We've chosen for the Empire Hotel. We had a wonderful time. The Empire is a great hotel with excellent staff and good food. It was the best choice we could make. The Empire is the nr one hotel of Brunei.

This hotel have deluxe restaurant and cinema. but I enjoy more their buildings, pool, lanai. The architectural design is so amazing for me. The venue is good for the family who really like to explore new places. The place is romantic also for a couple. You should have around $400 to enjoy the accommodation and amenities of the hotel overnight.... More

Rooms weren't too bad for a highly star hotel. I would say too grand which is good! Lobby were gold painted! Staff are quite nice. It's a perfect weekend getaway especially with attractive rates. Best hotels in Brunei! Would recommended to anyone who would rather spent a little bit more for a great world class resort.

Didn't stay here either and had the high tea. The website said the price was $22 per adult but we were charged $26+10% service charge. The scones and sandwiches were ok, the buffet was awful, serving deep fried Indian food and noodles.. That's not how High Tea is done in England I'm afraid. Conclusion; overpriced and poor.

I would be grateful to have the opportunity to understand your experience in more detail and would request that you please contact me directly, at your convenience.

At the recommendation of our guide book we took a public bus here from central BSB just to see this incredible place. It certainly lived up to expectations with an enormous marble lobby and giant chandelier. We ordered some tea and scones which were surprisingly inexpensive and very tasty (the scones had a bit of a cake texture but still... More
