I mostly like here staff service and food. Some facilities like transportation are excellent but sports are not enough and you have to concentrate towards sports maintenance and overall I enjoy my one week alone in this hotel and it means if I enjoy alone then if you have friends then you will find in heaven. Thank you team empire hotel. I will be back again.

8/10 Very good

This hotel can only be described as one of a kind! Total opulence and designed to be so with all the trimmings you would expect from Brunei. The only thing that was strange was the fact that the entire hotel was completely empty! Staff were great, the grounds were amazing, but no people. Not all of the restaurants were open, but we did manage to find some basic meals. With the help of the front desk we arranged for a car and driver and toured around the small county in comfort. But no people? Maybe it was the time of year? This resort did provide a great base for our limited time in Brunei and if we ever go back again, we would stay here again. Hopefully the resort is a little more busy?
