THE Empire Hotel & Country Club is arguably Brunei’s most luxurious place to stay with the sprawling property funded by a senior member of the country’s ruling royal family.
The beachfront address, which sits on Borneo’s north coast a stone’s throw from the capital city Bandar Seri Begawan, has 522 guest suites set in an assortment of buildings that offer water or garden views.
My room has a grand, palatial feel and is in the main building with two king-single beds dressed in fine cotton sheets and a big bathroom with tub and shower.
There’s also a private veranda offering a view across the swimming pool to the South China Sea.
The Empire boasts a collection of restaurants and bars, shops, a day spa, and golf course on site making is possibly to spend a whole holiday here without venturing outside the front gate.
Stay at this hotel and experience what it’s like to live like royalty.
