Kampong Jerudong Things to Do

  • Villa houses

    If you have the money to spent, there are some huge villa houses located near to the Lagoon Wing of the hotel. The villa houses look extremely luxurous and huge from the outside, and the exclusive swimming pool here (see my swimming pool tips) is very nice as it is an "infinity" concept pool facing the South China Sea.

  • East Wing

    The East Wing of the hotel is just next to the main building and lobby area, and the good thing about this wing is that the rooms are all facing the South China Sea. However, be prepared to pay more for the good views.

  • Lagoon Wing

    The Lagoon Wing consist of several tall blocks of hotel rooms facing a big lagoon located next to the main building. I stayed here for about 1 week in July 2007 and found it to be very quite and nice environment. Even the corridor and lift areas are air-conditioned.Overall, the rooms at the Lagoon Wing are cheaper than those facing the sea, but it...

  • Famous and delicious chocolates

    The Empire Hotel & Country Club is famous for its exclusively made chocolates which you can purchase at a counter at the main lobby area next to the check-in counter.There are many types of chocolates to choose from, and the box is very beautifully designed.

Kampong Jerudong Shopping

    Empire Arcade

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to do some shopping at the Empire Hotel & Country Club, there is a shopping arcade just next to the main lobby area. However, the shopping here is quite limited and not cheap, which is to be expected. The problem with this hotel is that it is very far way from the main town Bandar Seri Begawan and a ride there will take about 30 minutes one way.

As the hotel area is very big, the best way to walk around is to get a map of the entire area, which you can obtain from the check-in counter at the main lobby area.
