Enjoy the convenience of central hotels
Bandar Seri Begawan isn’t the biggest capital city in the world, but there’s a lot to be said about staying in a hotel right near all the popular attractions and restaurants. With water taxis, buses and tour vans as the main forms of public transportation, you’ll experience a sense of ease being within walking distance of sights such as the Royal Regalia Museum and the Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque.
Stay in the Radisson Hotel or the nearby Terrace Hotel to experience warm Asian hospitality, pleasant lodgings and fun facilities including pools and fitness centres. The Brunei Hotel is the closest to the city centre and boasts luxurious rooms and multiple fine-dining options.
Relax or shop by the river
If you’re not too fussed on being involved with all the happenings of the city centre, why not leave the lights behind and find a bit of peace along the banks of the Sungai Menglait. The Rizquin International Hotel and the Centrepoint Hotel are two great places to stay that give you a fantastic river location, but also keep you close to the entertainment and shopping.
The five-star Rizquin presents a true exotic appeal and the majority of the outside looks made of glass. Enjoy a drink at the poolside bar or browse through shops in the Mall Shopping Arcade. At the Centrepoint Hotel you can exercise using the recreational facilities or just gaze out over the surrounding landscape from your elegant room.
Trade in the city for the beach
The majestic Jerudong Beach is only about 20 minutes from the city of Bandar Seri Begawan. This breezy beach is a great spot for going swimming, fishing or having a nice relaxed picnic away from crowds of people. You can also visit the championship golf course nearby for a few rounds.
Staying on the beach comes with its own perks such as waking up to beautiful sea views every morning. The five-star Empire Hotel and Country Club provides quality views along with splendiferous rooms and a private cinema. A little further from the beach is the Asma Hotel, which delivers high-quality rooms and modern facilities.
