A lovely hotel to be in (the best in Brunei). It's worth a visit, even if it's just for an afternoon tea. Check-in and check-out were quick and easy, service is great. It is in a great location too. Only downfall was that breakfast isn't included in the room rate and the deluxe room balcony could be cleaned (birds had...

Elegantly decorated hotel with golf course. But my stay at ocean view was in a separated building that was more like a condo unit. There were no facility and disappointing view. Overpriced and breakfast not even included. The room itself was large and comfortable with extra large bathroom. However, all restaurant outlets and shops are in the main building including...

Didn't have chance to stay at this luxurious hotel yet. But visited their lobby cafe and enjoyed special mix drinks and tasty cakes. Go for the Vit C Booster, super nice. Friendly staff and beautiful views everywhere.

This was my second visit to Brunei and during both occasions I stayed at The Empire. This is a luxurious hotel, built for royalty. The staff was meticulously attentive and always available. If you travel to Brunei, on business or vacation, this is where you want to stay.

We stayed a total of 5 nights, and were very reluctant to leave. It was a most fun and relaxing stay at the Empire. My 3 children (4, 3, 2 years) enjoyed themselves to the max. They ate very well during their stay here too given the dining options that served good food. We ate at the Pantai Lunch buffet...

The only hotel along the shore with a beautiful view towards the South China Sea. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The hotel has a great atrium lobby, unfortunately the fountains are no longer operational. The various restaurants offer plenty of food choices. For a nice sunset dinner, Pantai offers great outdoor seating. However the restaurant only offers buffet - no...

I have always enjoyed my stay with family at the empire. Stunning view of the South China sea glazing in the hot sun. Beaches are beautiful and you simply enjoy the lazy sit around at the green grasses hill top by the ocean front. Awesome pool for the kids and adult, you simply cannot resist. Golfers absolute get away and...

Visited The Empire with my friends and had a wonderful experiences. The rooms are huge, clean and beautifully furnished. People were so nice and friendly. They were always more than willing to help. Hotel was absolutely magnificent. The view of the sea is good too. This is one of the best hotels I've ever visited abroad.

We only visited for a day when recently in Bandar to use the facilities and were not disappointed. This place is amazing and on a grand scale! The pool facilities were fantastic and right on the beach if you fancy a dip in the sea. We would recommend this place to anyone, even if it's just for the day. If...

The resorts is wonderful. The staff are very friendly and the facilities are great. The hotel has an amazing location and some stunning ocean views. Free internet throughout the buildings however as soon as your outside it becomes a little patchy. On the downside for me there were so many extras that you have to pay for. For a place...
