Arrive at midnight. Personal at the reception was very attentive and friendly. They know who you are, that is always a plus point. My colleague got the same room from his previous visit. Stayed at the ocean view. Room was huge and clean. Everything needed is available and top up on the next day. Did not use the shampoo and conditioner provided thou, the smell was not to my liking. The robe provided smells alittle. Would to try the pool on my next visit if it is not close after my business meetings. The breakfast can be improve on. Pretty bland for my taste. Homemade sausage and dim sum was lean and tasteless.

The location and service of this hire resort is nothing short of incredible. The sight is absolutely mind blowing. It very is well kept. It reminds me that in Asia, they go above and beyond for 5 star hotels. On sight there is so much to do! There’s a cinema, bowling ally, kayaking, pool, squash, badminton, golf, a gymnasium and a children’s club. Multiple restaurants ranging from Japanese to BBQ & seafood. There are multiple bars within the resort too. Room service is speedy and you can order buggies to take you to different parts of the resort because it is rather huge. The rooms are extremely spacious and come with king size beds!

I can’t speak anymore highly of this place. Should anyone ever go to Brunei, this is without doubt the place to stay! We give thanks!

The Empire certainly lived up to my high expectations and even exceeded them. The distance out of town was really not a big deal because of convenient hotel transport and it was closer than expected (30 Brunei dollars each way if I remember rightly). The staff could not have done more to make my stay happier. The facilities here are excellent, with a cafe, multiple restaurants, gift shops and even a cinema all on site. Don't go to Brunei without staying here! Just one suggestion in case the hotel reads this: I left with an awful lot of paperwork and envelopes. I received an enveloped A4 sheet for every transaction. It all adds up and I wonder if the hotel could be more environmentally friendly in this way? It would also help guests to see what's important and what isn't. That's just a minor suggestion though. This hotel is lush!

This place was beautiful with its high ceilings and marble decor. Staff are all very warm and friendly and ready to please. The room was big and in-room service was excellent. We were on the first floor and walked out to a beautiful pool area. I don’t like feather pillows and asked for a firmer one to be delivered by end of day. It arrived in no more than 10 minutes! Plenty of amenities, the buggy ride was convenient especially when we ended dinner one night and there was a thunderstorm and heavy rain. There’s a pastry shop that looks like a jewelry store and when you purchase the food items for eating in, they escort you to the atrium where you are seated and served as if you were dining in from the start. Place settings include real linen placemat and napkin, side plate of peanuts and always a small plate of cookies. There are 4-5 restaurants all serving various types of cuisine and many shops for souvenirs. If you don’t stay here, plan a visit just to check it out!
