I first stayed at this hotel in 2004 it was amazing I have since been back and the standards are the same. You feel like royalty and whether you are a single traveller or with others you are made to feel special. The pool and children's facilities were very good. As Brunei is a "dry" country if you like a... More

Probably the biggest and grandest hotel I have ever stayed in. It feels like it was designed for something much bigger than what it ended up becoming. This is a full-on resort that is a tourist destination in itself, with its own country club, spa, beach, lagoon, and heck throw in a full-size cinema for good measure. Service is par... More

Its a hotel open to public and tourists. Theres many things to do while you stay at the hotel such as gym, shop at the arcade and buy some local merchandise there too. However its pricy. There are 3 restaurants to choose from and its recommended to try the Beachfront restaurant cause its really amazing. The restaurant under the lobby... More

My overall impression of this hotel has to be the wow factor. It is located in impressively large grounds, is aesthetically beautiful and architecturally interesting. My room was huge, the bed was massive, the bathroom I have told my husband has to be reproduced in our own home,the furniture and fittings were high quality and comfortable. The facilities are also... More

By far the grandest hotel I have stayed in, located by the sea. The staff were friendly and very helpful, always offering buggy rides around the hotel (its huge). There are load of facilities to keep you occupied and the hotel is never full or busy, so perfect for a nice quiet / calm stay. You are limited to just... More

Stayed for one night with my husband and 2 kids. Super single beds in twin room were great. Dinner at Pantai was excellent, lots of choice and tasty. Breakfast was also very good. Main pool and children's pool kept the kids entertained all day. Staff are friendly and helpful. The kids loved the golf buggies that drive you around! Rooms... More

Sprawling and large and the huge chance of getting lost (well, in a good way). A really good place for an urban rat to disappear into and take a respite. Rooms are spacious, well-appointed, bathroom amenities fabulous. The bedding! So fluffy with (Egyptian?) cotton sheets and duvet that I could lose myself into. Of course, the usual luxuries are there... More

While I didn't stay overnight at the hotel, I had the good fortune of attending a gala dinner at the complex and took the opportunity to walk around and see the place. Incredible place! The main lobby and atrium are spectacular; grand columns and marble staircases; fabulous chandeliers; impressive furnishings and mirrors. The gardens and huge pool, with views looking... More

This is my fourth stay in this hotel. Each time it never disappoints. The staff are friendly and the place is spotlessly clean. The spaghettini Italian restaurant has great food, and friendly staff too. There is an onsite golf course, cinema and ten pin bowling alley too. All in all a really good place to stay

We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The staff throughout were wonderful and very friendly, especially the guys in concierge, they were extremely helpful and helped us with local tours and airport transfers. They made our stay memorable. Regardless of your opinion of the decor it is extremely clean and comfortable. I liked the decor, but... More
