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.

Dear Guest, I am pleased that you enjoyed our afternoon tea and with this in mind, may I recommend that you try the recently reopened Spaghettini restaurant, featuring an all new menu, with fresh and healthy modern Italian and Mediterranean flavours.

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

This hotel is extremely well appointed - marble floors, soaring columns, palatial fittings. Staff are kind, attentive. Food very good, varied though not outstanding. It is well situated with sea outlooks and several outdoor pools. We were there on a business trip and 3 of our party of 4 had a problem with the room swipecard entry keys. This really... More

It is my first visit to Brunei and my client booked me this hotel. Not so far from airport but close to city center neither. Clean and comfortable hotel room with spacious bathroom. Pool at the beach side was huge and gorgeous! sadly only stay for one night

Staff was very friendly and helpful. The corner room I stayed in was in immaculate condition with a balcony with sea and pool view. Just sitting in the balcony all day long would be just fine. Huge swimming pool and in pristine condition. Would definitely stay there if ever drop by in Brunei.
