This hotel is great for a relaxing break. There is so many things to do within the grounds and the swimming pools are fantastic. We ate at Li Gong restaurant and the food and service were excellent. Had lunch from room service and I was so impressed with food again and service. All brilliant! The room was disappointing- there was... More

Stayed at the Empire Hotel Brunei for a meeting. I was really struck by the grandness of the hotel upon arrival. It has a huge lobby with very high ceiling and humonguos atrium. True to Bruneian style, it is decorated everywhere with gold-coloured furnishing. A bit over ther top but not entirely gaudy either. The hotel overlooks the sea which... More

Luxury, beautiful and amazing resort but sometimes lacks personality in both atmosphere and in staff. We ate at a few places and the food was good but not great (and very overpriced).Minor parts of the hotel are starting to wear and will need attention to be fixed but they are very minor things. We had a few particular staff that... More

Spent a day here using the pool. Lovely warm water in main pool. Massive jacuzzi a little too hot though. Food at the poolside bar is not as good as it used to be. Try getting one of the huge sun beds. Good place to watch the sun go down over the south china sea.

The hotel is grand, large and clean, There is nice view of the sea and beach with a natural and peaceful setting. There are many facilities, such as gym room, bowling alley, cinema, pools, etc. The manmade beach is rather small but sufficient. You can play beach volleyball or soccer there. There are two beaches in total. There is a... More

Stayed at The Empire for 2 nights with my husband. The hotel itself in jaw dropping, it is stunning from floor to ceiling. Very clean throughout, the room was lovely too. Big bath, big bed and all the essential mod cons you need. We requested a sea view, we couldn't see the sea because of trees which was such a... More

This place is a palace. Opulence in the extreme with a wonderful setting by the sea in beautifully landscaped gardens. Peaceful and spacious. Had the opportunity to walk by the sea and to explore the wonderful grounds. Breakfast was good. It is the setting and palace like nature though that set this hotel apart.
