Discover Brunei, Empire style

If the thought of spending almost 24-hours on a long haul flight to Australia or New Zealand is disconcerting, take the opportunity to discover a new destination and plan a stopover en route.

Brunei on the northern tip of Borneo is an ideal place to break the journey and is also an ideal location when twinned with a trip to the Middle East or other South East Asia destinations.

Just 20-minutes’ drive from Brunei’s Bandar Seri Begawan Airport is the luxurious 5-star The Empire Hotel and Country Club. The architectural design and ambience of this luxury resort is built in a style that befits the image of Brunei as the home of the Sultan of Brunei.

Overlooking the South China Sea and on the edge of one of Asia’s oldest rain forests, the hotel is located on a magnificent stretch of Brunei’s pristine coastline and has 162 hectares of lush tropical gardens that capture the calm atmosphere found throughout Brunei.

Hotel guests can unwind in the peaceful gardens or opt for one of the massage therapies and beauty treatments designed to de-stress and rejuvenate in the hotel Spa. Keen golfers can ease the strain of flying with a round of golf on the floodlit Jack Nicklaus signature 18-hole golf course or choose from a selection of other world-class sports and leisure facilities.
