To wake up here means having a breathtaking sunrise greet you each morning. One also gets to soak up on the culture of the country - The Empire Hotel & Country Club pretty much reflects the beauty of Brunei Darussalam. The rooms at The Empire Hotel & Country Club are very elegant. I love the bed, the marble-clad bathrooms, the... More

This hotel sure worths its price. The room is clean, the bed is comfortable, the staffs are nice and breakfast is good. Unfortunately its location which is far from city centre and the tv in my room was the old one are the only minus. Overall this hotel is good for a quiet escape and dependent leisure time.

Fairly unique for affordable luxury and sheer opulent indulgence! If you're visiting the Brunei, it'd be a shame to miss out on visiting this grand hotel. I'd recommend the ones on the main wings with their balconies, comfortable beds and huge marble clad bathrooms. There's much to do here, but one activity we enjoyed was the hotel cinema - ask...

We spent 3 nights at "The Empire" Hotel during our Borneo tour. Did we sleep well...that's the one thing where you can't fault "The Empire": great beds, matrasses, pillows - you will sleep heavenly. We stayed in one of the "lagoon" buildings. While reading through reviews from others, I noticed several 5 star reviews, yet I only rate the overall... More

Just came back from a 5D4N vacation, staying in the Executive Suite of The Empire during the last week of March. The hotel architecture is extremely grand - looks like a palace in fact, and the room is spacious. Spoke to some of the staff in the hotel and they are very friendly, helpful and cheerful. Food are delicous, be... More

Architecturally amazing, abundantly available facilities, beautiful rooms and world class service make this my number one hotel ever visited! The hotel is beautifully located on the Brunei coast, surrounded by wonderful gardens and an amazing golf course. A very well equipped children's pool, large infinity pool and huge free form salt water pool mean there is no shortage for outdoor... More

This hotel is the best in Brunei, feels like your in a palace. The property was huge and the facilities was scattered. You'll enjoy a walk around the property as the view is truly magnificent. If your feet is tired of walking; no problem there is a free buggy ride that will scroll you around. The room is awesome, it's... More

The Empire is by far the best hotel in Brunei, the grounds and facilites are just wonderful. The interior, the staff, and exterior areas are the best. However, although they have numerous pools and two beaches, have no lifeguards, life rings or safety staff on duty. Their nod to water safety is numerous signs denying any responsibility, and a coloured... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking your time to share your experience and observations on your recent stay. I have noted your concerns regarding water safety. Whilst we do have attendants at the pool side, given the size of the property, I agree with you, it is essential for guests to supervise young children. For this reason, we provide a... More

The last weekend of the school holiday, we decided to check into the hotel and try the Sea View Wing. Being local, there is a special rate for the school holidays and that sway our decision to stay in Brunei rather than go the next door neighbour (Miri). For the reasonable package, it includes the room, free use of the... More
