The Sultan of Brunei's brother, Prince Jefri, once owned the Empire Hotel and Country Club.Unfortunately Prince Jefri misappropriated 15 billion dollars of Government money and so the Sultan confiscated the palace and kicked Prince Jefri out of the country for 10 years and the Palace was turned into a 5* Hotel and Country Club.
My husband and I had 4 days at the Hotel but what an experience. Our transfer from the airport went smoothly and the check-in at the desk was warm and inviting. We were swiftly escorted to our room where we stood and gazed at the floor to ceiling Italian marble bathroom, the intricate 100% merino wool carpet and snow white Egyptian cotton sheets.
The Hotel has International restaurants including Japanese, Italian and Asian to choose from with prices starting from $17.90 for 3 course meal at Spaghettini.
Rooms or villas are available. Our room was $250 AUS per night but if you want to stay in the room that Bill Clinton stayed in it will cost you $15,000 USA per night.
The Sultan still maintains a Villa on premise and he stayed on site while we were there.
The Country Club features an 8 lane Bowling Alley, 2 squash courts, 2 badminton courts, indoor swimming pool, 3 snooker tables, 1 billiard table, basket ball court and table tennis court. I indulged in the spa treatments while my husband played golf on the jack Nicklaus designed Golf Course.
Our stay was also complimented by exclusive buggy tours around the complex and a sneeky tour of the West Wing.
