Hotels in Brunei are mostly three to four-star accommodations with a handful of luxury resorts situated approximately 15 minutes from Bandar Seri Begawan and Brunei International Airport. A startling mixture of uber modernity and uptight Muslim conventions, Brunei surprises most visitors. Featuring a startlingly laid-back vibe, the oil rich emirate is riding the waves of ‘black gold’ and Bruneians are a happy lot because of it – education and healthcare are free, income taxes are non-existent and houses and cars are subsidised.
Situated on a slim coastal plain on Borneo Island, Brunei’s landscape is a mixture of forest, swamps and beaches – perfect for those who prefer a quiet verdant stay experience in Borneo. Brunei hotels also offer well-appointed guestrooms and facilities at affordable rates, as well as easy access to many must-visit destinations such as Brunei Museum, Jame’ Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque, Istana Nurul Iman, and Royal Regalia Museum.
