Magical discovery experience combines supreme luxury with eco-adventure at HK$2,760 a night
Brunei’s award-winning Empire Hotel & Country Club is celebrating completion of a revamp of its 196 Deluxe Rooms and Suites with the launch of a special package designed to entice discerning eco-adventurers to one of Asia’s largest and most luxurious resorts with the promise of exploring one of its oldest rainforests.
Five-star style on the equatorial island of Borneo – just 3-hours from Hong Kong – combines a day’s exploration of world famous Temburong National Park, priced at B$460 (HK$2,760) per night [for two] with a minimum booking of two nights.
Deep in the jungle, visitors embark on a two-hour boardwalk nature trail which reaches high into the rainforest canopy for close encounters with birds, giant ants, plants, micro fauna and mammals – including the rare, endangered Bornean proboscis monkey.
The Empire’s milestone renovation upgrades Deluxe Rooms and Suites with lavish designer features ensuring absolute comfort including lighting and sofas by Meritalia Italy, Italian tailored bed linens, Thai bedspreads, wallpaper by Sense of the United States, hand-tufted wool carpeting by Britons UK and locally hand-crafted beds and TV cabinets bringing a touch of Brunei heritage into rooms.
Setting new standards for traveling executives and holidaymakers alike, the brand new guestroom concept also incorporates enticing new technology from high speed wireless internet to giant 55-inch LED TVs.
With spectacular ocean views, The E-Club Lounge is meanwhile an exclusive retreat on the 6th floor, serving complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, evening ‘mocktails’ and international hors d’oeuvres.
Access to recreational facilities from the health club, sauna, gym to aerobics and swimming pools is also complimentary, with room upgrades available. A wide range of sporting and recreational activities include tennis, squash, water sports and scuba-diving to spectacular reefs and wrecks.
Golf is also world-class at The Empire Hotel & Country Club’s spectacular Jack Nicklaus signature course – repeatedly voted Asia’s Leading Golf Resort and also the host for Asia Pacific Golf Summit and The Royal Trophy in December 2012.
Sightseeing in the capital, Bandar Seri Begawan, is meanwhile highlighted by the world-famous Kampong Ayer water village on stilts, breathtaking Brunei Museum, golden Jame’Asr Hassanil Bolkaih Mosque and magnificent 1,788 room Royal Palace, home to the Sultan of Brunei.
