There is no doubt that this place is architecturally impressive. It also works well as a resort, with its own beach, restaurants etc. It is however important to compare it to places of a similar price within the SE Asia region. Personally, I didn't find the service to be up to the standard of a 5 star hotel. It was... More

I was dismayed to find rubbish (plastic bottles and containers) on the sandy beach and the rocky headland in front of the ocean-view rooms when I took a walk during low tide. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay.

A vast place. So lavish. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our swim there, as well as the photo ops with the ocean as our background. Our dinner, as well as our breakfast were good. The servers were polite and helpful.

Food options are many but the best in my opiniin is Pantai where you can enjoy a delicious meal whilst watching a truly beautiful... 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
