Summary of 666 verified reviews


Excellent family hotel. Easily accessible by car. Great pool. Beautiful beach. Great room. Awesome vibe.

Here the splendor, the heritage, and majesty of this six hundred-year-old sultanate are gloriously captured with an expansive 180-hectare beachfront estate designed to complement the magnificent scenery of the surrounding South China Sea.

Journey to the island of Borneo, where you'll come face to face with ancient jungles, pristine beaches, and endemic wildlife found nowhere else in the world. Within Borneo, in the tiny Kingdom of Brunei, you'll find The Empire Brunei hotel and resort. A visit to The Empire Brunei is like stepping into another world, where life revolves around luxury, opulence, and most importantly, relaxation, rest, and restoration. Guests of The Empire Brunei can stay in expansive and luxurious rooms, all with large balconies and direct ocean views. The resort features over a half a dozen restaurants serving local and international cuisine. Within the resort itself, guests can enjoy sports of all kinds, including watersports such as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and swimming, along with diving and more traditional sport offerings such as tennis, badminton, cycling, squash, basketball, and hiking. Other activities tend toward entertainment, fitness, and relaxation — with the resort's state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor lap pool, a commercial-grade cinema, and the hotel's spa, where you can treat yourself to the Spa Empire Signature massage, a fusion of Balinese, Taksu, and Swedish massage techniques that will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated.

From the moment you step inside the soaring lobby with its marble pillars, gold accents, and tiger's eye inlaid, gold-plated stair rails, you know you're in for an experience like no other. Sumptuous luxury reminiscent of a private sultan's palace surrounds you both indoors and out. The Empire Brunei's welcoming atmosphere, multiple room types, and ample event space for both weddings and business events makes this resort hotel great for any type of traveler, from an intimate couple's escape to a family-friendly weeks-long reunion.
