On my recent trip to the Southeast Asian Sultanate of Brunei Darussalam, I had the opportunity to stay at the country’s premier resort, the Empire Hotel & Country Club. The hotel is huge and comprises several wings, various restaurants, a stunning lagoon-pool and beautiful views of the South China Sea. During my stay, I was taken on a tour of the hotel and one room grabbed my attention: the Emperor Suite; simply the most opulent, over-the-top suite I’ve ever laid my eyes on! Have a look:
Inside the Emperor Suite
The Emperor Suite in the Empire Hotel is a whopping 665 square meters (more than 7,000 square feet) and features a master bedroom, reception, dining, working/meeting and living areas. There’s a private swimming pool and sauna, and a movie theatre – you can watch a movie while sitting in the jacuzzi! The first guest to stay here: President Bill Clinton!
Fancy a stay in this suite? 🙂

Note: my trip to Brunei was made possible by Royal Brunei Airlines. Royal Brunei operates regular services from most Southeast Asian cities as well as from Shanghai, London and Melbourne to Brunei.
