Fairly unique for affordable luxury and sheer opulent indulgence! If you're visiting the Brunei, it'd be a shame to miss out on visiting this grand hotel.
I'd recommend the ones on the main wings with their balconies, comfortable beds and huge marble clad bathrooms.
There's much to do here, but one activity we enjoyed was the hotel cinema - ask for the VIP seats at the back - sumptuously large leather armchairs to enjoy your movie in.
Another not-to-miss activity if you have the time is a day-trip to the Temburung. The boat trips to a jungle lodge deep in the rainforest are a fantastic experience for adults and children, and the canopy walk high inside and above the jungle canopy is pretty special if you've a head for heights.
The mosques and water village in Bandar are worth visiting too; especially as this is a uniquely safe, peaceful and friendly city.
