The Brunei Darussalam’s Empire Hotel and Country Club is a tropical resort that could be the highlight of your Brunei trip. The interior and exterior design is modern and tasteful. Walking in here will make you feel like you’ve just walked into a Southeast Asia Palace!
The Empire Hotel is perched right on the sandy shores by the South China Sea and is easily accessible from the Brunei International Airport, just a short 15-minute drive away. The range of activities and options is really endless, as you’d expect from a 5-star resort. There are options for wedding, tours, events on top of accommodation. With an onsite golf course, swimming pools and plenty of other amenities, you don’t need to travel far from the hotel at all!
Getting here is a breeze
Transport is limited around Brunei in general. There are plenty of taxis available on arrival at the international airport. You can organise a hotel shuttle too. Rental cars should be organised before arriving in Brunei, although you will find it won’t really be needed. Taking the taxi in Brunei would be a better option if you intend on spending most of your time around the hotel.
Driving through the immaculate gardens gives you an idea of the magnitude of the grounds. On arrival, there is a valet service if needed, and bellmen to take your luggage and belongings to your room. The hotel is set in lush park like settings and has a variety of suites and rooms for everyone.
Quality and quantity in the luxurious rooms
The accommodation options are excellent and you will be well cared for during your stay by friendly staff. The basic rooms are spacious and well worth the reasonable 190 USD a night. Most rooms have their own private balcony and are available at ground level. You can also choose from a range of bedding options.
What is noteworthy in your room would be the beautiful bathroom; treat yourself to a soak in the marble bath and enjoy the peacefulness. The rooms are very clean and tidy with on call room service if you require it.
Whilst each room offers plenty of space and all amenities including a mini bar, hair dryer, mini fridge and more, there is plenty on offer outdoors and throughout the rest of the resort. You will not fall short for something to do!
You can take a stroll through the manicured gardens to enjoy the peaceful surroundings, or you can relax at the resort’s private beach. There is even a short walk out on a spit where you can sit and enjoy the scenery or even a sunset!
The beach area is a major drawcard for the resort, and the water is beautifully warm even in winter months. There is a sports area for you to play volleyball if you like! Even better are the lounges set out so you can enjoy the ocean! Tables and umbrellas are also set out for guests to use.
There is an 18-hole golf course onsite and a range of outdoor sporting activities, enough to keep your days full to the brim. Of course, another great area is the swimming pool; there are designated areas for children and families as well as areas for those who prefer less crowd and noise. Grab a glass of cocktail or lemonade at the pool bar, which you can enjoy in the swimming pool! How is that for luxury and relaxation?
Eating is hard work, but not at the Empire!
There are several dining areas allocated to a wide range of food choices. There is a main dining area in the resort’s main building and many others around the resort.
If you are unsure what you are after or would like to eat, then speak with reception and they will gladly point you in the right direction! There are a few local and international buffet areas as well as a bakery. The Lobby Lounge offers high tea and lighter refreshments during the day.
There is a shopping arcade located within the grounds too. You truly do not need to venture far with the hotel thoughtful facilities and amenities. If you manage to find time, there is even a day spa offering a range of beauty treatments for the full relaxation experience.
Live in luxury and style during your stay here
The possibilities are endless at the Empire Hotel & Country Club! The pricing is all pretty reasonable for the luxurious comfort. If you are after an exceptional experience while in Brunei, then it is highly recommended for you to stay at the Empire Hotel & Country Club.
