                  8.8

                  Friendly staff, luxurious rooms, the resort's ample space, the pool and the gold(-plated) and marble ambiance. There are many facilities (gym, spa etc) located in a second building that we eventually did not come around to use.

                  Many seemingly unused areas within the main building and the long corridors there and in the two wings, invokes a feeling Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. The place is not scary, but simply empty: faded glory. The Empire would be on a par with the opulent establishments in Las Vegas and Dubai, but the fixtures and finishes are dated and/ or worn, so it must rank a notch below these. In sum, highly recommended for a romantic weekend break, but if you want everything to be impeccable, then go to the Las Vegas, UAE or nearby SG.

                  The location of the hotel and number of facility

                  The resturatent food is so limited

                  I love the surroundings and the space. It is a great getaway.

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  The rooms were very lavish and extravagant, staff were friendly, mocktails were tasty! It was almost like being in a 'hotel theme park' for a couple of nights - gawking at the gold plated lobby and enormous pool.

                  Having to pay extra for use of hotels facilities eg. 35 Brunei dollars to pay a game of squash for 1hr seemed a bit excessive seeing as we had already paid so much for the room. Also because the hotel was so big it was quite a walk to get anywhere!

                  We love the classy setting, very grand and majestic hotel. Excellent in every aspect especially the staff.

                  8.2

                  The Empire hotel is Brunei's peak of luxury. Large, expansive and regal

                  Not quite on par with the best of the Asian chains in terms of modernity and hospitality

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  Arrived at 6 am and they provided our room and it was an upgrade. This made for a wonderful start to a relaxing holiday.The building is worth a visit in its own right- a former royal palace.

                  Difficult to fault.

                • Group of friends
                  8.8

                  everything is very good, only diff to find fr bandar. signboard very few

                  7.8

                  Great building.. Very rich in marble and gold

                  The service is not at the sane level of the hotel, the service not include r very expensive

                • Family with children
                  8.2

                  The bedroom was luxurious and spacious. The bathroom was beautiful and was stocked with an excellent range of toiletries. The infinity swimming pool ( one of many) was vast and a joy to swim in. The poolside cafe was also fun.

                  It was quite busy when we arrived as a large confernce party had just arrived. So the welcome outside the hotel was not as it should have been at a hotel of this class.

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  The cleanliness and comfortable atmosphere of the hotel

                  Food of some hotel restaurant are not upto standard No free Wi-fi provided in rooms

                • Couple
                  8.2

                  I love all the facilities available and it has reasonable and fair price. You will not regret it. I even extended our stay for another 2 nights!

                  The reception staffs could have been more polite in communicating with clients.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  We loved the spacious rooms. the view and the friendly staff

                  It was annoying every time we finished a meal in a restaurant to have a form shoved at us to fill in on what we thought of the restaurant. Would have liked a fresh squeezed fruit juice bar at breakfast.. Went to the seafood buffet, A big bus load came in and ate most of the food and from then on there was not much choice of food left.

                • Couple
                  9.6

                  the Service, the room, the breakfast buffet which is enourmous and really good quality, the beach, the pool, the country club and all the sports, the cinema... the chinese restaurant on the premises is also very good (a magnificent signature tofu dish) and the deserts also memorable. all for a very affordable price. overall the hotel is quite something - we stay in many good hotels, but this one left an impression

                  for this level of standards well, there are high expectations: - the lagoon was empty (this is the massive salt water pool seen in all the hotel photos) - no fresh juices in the breakfast buffet - no newspaper at the door every morning

                • Single
                  5.4

                  It was comfortable and ok. other than the lobby, nothing much to scream about.

                  The smell in the hotel rooms were slightly pungent, but you get used to it after a while.
