Hotel Review: The Empire Hotel and Country Club

Opened in 2000, The Empire Hotel and Country Club is located 15 minutes from Brunei International Airport and 20 minutes to Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei and central business district.

Synonymous with Brunei the property is grand in her stature, reflecting the country’s majestic and cultural heritage. The first thing you will notice about the property is the sheer size, set on 180 hectares of landscaped gardens.

The accommodation is First Class in every way, allowing guests to feel like royalty. The hotel features 522 spacious rooms offering different views, including the ocean, lagoon, gardens, or golf course. Each room has been furnished with the finest offerings from around the world, adding to the hotel’s opulence. Room types include Ocean & Superior, Deluxe Rooms and Villas.

For the best of the best, the Suites include the Ambassador, Empress and Emperor Suite. Voted “The World’s Leading Presidential Suite” by the World Travel Awards 2003 & 2004, The Emperor Suite has a private elevator, swimming pool, steam room, sauna and movie theatre.

The Empire Hotel and Country Club has nine dining options.  Pantai and Zen Pavilion serve up seafood and BBQ, while Ligong cooks up Chinese a’ la carte for dinner and Sunday brunch. Overlooking the putting green, Bunker Bistro serves local and international dishes. Seaside dining is available at Pantai Restaurant while after-meal drinks are offered at the lobby lounge.

Featuring an 18-hole golf course, The Empire Hotel and Country Club consistently ranks among Asia Pacific’s top golf resorts.
