Empire Hotel and Country Club, Brunei Darussalam

I do enjoy visiting some of the fotoblogs. It’s interesting to see their perspectives on places, people and events. Taking shots of building is not my flavour as I prefer to take portraits and people in photographs. However, recently, I did an experiment in taking pictures of building. Here are my shots of the Empire Hotel and Country Club. Enjoy them!


Look like postcards to me! Last weekend, there was not much of an afternoon sun. Usually, at around 5.00 pm, you can see the wall of the Atrium Building going GOLDEN from the sun rays!!

I love the architectural design of the Pantai Restaurant. It gives me such a relaxing mood when u set into the restaurant or just walk around it!.

The three coconut trees are such an insignia for me. You can pretend to be in the Caribbean without leaving the country. Dreaming is free!! hehehe


Me and Daboys’ favourite haunt at the Empire has to be the Pool Deck . We can eat, drink, swim and sleep here if we want. Not only the food…. but the service of Imam and his team, made us feel at home. Recommended food to have include Nachos, Club Sandwich and Chicken Caesar Salad. Drinks?? Try the healthy smoothies.. Yumm!!

Oh ! This little fella couldn’t agree more with me..!!! As you can see, he patiently wait to be served in the pool!! Cute!!

Riviera Hotel, Brunei.

Riviera Hotel Brunei


A very pleasant and modernly furnished hotel located in the heart of Kuala Belait. I stayed in the Junior Suite (pic above) for the night and found it very comfortable. I especially like the bathroom, quite a retro fix. Every floor has its own WiFi connection and just next to the hotel, there is a Riviera Cafe which is actually right next to the Belait river where you can enjoy magnificent sunset views such as below as you unwind for the day.

My rating: 3 stars out of 5.
