The Empire Hotel And Country Club


Introduction
Located about 20 - 30 minutes drive from Bandar Seri Begawan International airport, The Empire Hotel And Country Club in Brunei is more than just a hotel or a place to stay, it's a self-contained tourist attraction as well. Built by the Royal Family, The Empire Hotel And Country Club is the largest hotel in the country, the most popular destination due to its multiple activities and facilities, as well as the location of many business meetings and international conventions.



Ambience
Ambience within The Empire Hotel And Country Club befits its standing of the Royal Family of Brunei, with grand opulence and extravagance at every turn. The luxurious interior impresses upon first glance, and unlike many other places in Bandar Seri Begawan, The Empire Hotel And Country Club is well maintained and modern. Decor reflects both the traditional and contemporary in a unique blend, while the high ceilings, glass windows and ambient lighting showcase the beautiful beach front and the awesome view of the South China Sea.



Room
I stayed in the Deluxe Room of The Empire Hotel And Country Club. Rooms have a great view, and come fully equipped with amenities. Comfortable and feels luxurious, and the internet connectivity is pretty stable. You could also opt to stay in a Villa, or the Empress Suite / Emperor Suite. The gardens around the rooms lend a nice touch of natural greenery.



Food
Food at The Empire Hotel And Country Club Atrium Cafe is pretty good. I find the daily buffet more value for money than the ala-carte, as the range is quite varied, and taste is decent. There are many dining options at The Empire Hotel And Country Club, and by eating 1 meal in all the 7 different restaurants / cafes, you would take 2 days to sample al of them. Menus are quite extensive, though not all places are open for lunch or dinner.



Service
Service at The Empire Hotel And Country Club is excellent. Staff are friendly, welcoming, efficient and professional, as befits this hotel which constantly serves international guests of some esteem, and the Brunei Royal Family. The sprawling distance of the hotel ground is well covered by staff though, so you won't have to wait too long.



Facilities & Activities
The facilities at The Empire Hotel And Country Club are varied, and you'll never have to leave the grounds at all. Conference and Business facilities are well maintained and good, probably some of the best equipped in the country. There are a multitude of family and recreation lesiure activities, including golf and bowling. Entering the grounds is free, and many locals from Bandar Seri Begawan visit The Empire Hotel And Country Club to catch the gorgeous sunrise / sunset over the South China Sea.
