Holiday Staycation at Badiah Hotel

Brunei is my second country I visited first was Japan, The time when I booked my ticket I was planning to celebrate the EidMurabak. I was searching on the internet for where to stay and luckily I found the badi'ah hotel while checking, the location of the place was not really in the center of Bandar Seri Begawan, but not a problem since the hotel was located about a kilometer to the King Palace. 

I arrived at Brunei International Airport around 10:10 pm from Manila, Philippines. Upon arrival, the staff of the hotel is patiently waiting for me holding a placard with my name. We headed to the departure exit since the shuttle service was parked. The two staffs who picked me up was so entertaining, they are much willing to help me plan my activities.

Badi'ah Hotel is located in Jalan Tutong It's just about 15 minutes’ drive from Brunei Airport and 5 minutes to the city center. The location of the hotel is really quite and few meters to the bus stop going to the center.

The check-in process was smooth after they confirmed my reservation and presenting my passport, the staff gave my key card. The lobby of the hotel is spacious with a sofa set.

I stayed in a Superior Room measured about approximately 30sqm, it is very spacious with one Queen size bed, a writing desk, a Cable Tv, a fast wifi connection to update my social media account and uploads photos on my website, a Hot and Cold Shower, a complete Badiah branded toiletries, a toilet with bidet, a bottle of complimentary water, a coffee and tea making facilities, a telephone, an iron & ironing board, a closet equipped with an electronic safe and a bedroom slipper. 

After I settled everything in my room, I went to the restaurant downstairs because I am hungry, luckily they are still open, I ordered a set meal of chicken curry and noodles, I forgot the name of noodles, but is delicious.

I slept well in their very comfortable bed with a full blast of air-conditioned, The next day morning  I wake up early to take my breakfast to the 1st floor where the food was served because my friend will fetch me up around 8 am to toured me around Bandar Seri since there's no public transportation. The staff is very accommodating, I am aware that most of the employees of badi'ah hotel speak Tagalog (Philippines Language). It is not difficult for me to communicate to them.

It was 6:30 pm when my friend drops me off at the hotel. I decided to walk around near to the place and I found a small restaurant at the back of Badi'ah. It is a Chinese owned and the price of their food is quite affordable at 3.5 dollars with 2 types of meat of choice 1 Vegetable and Rice, they ask extra charge of 50 cents for a takeout box.  

I went back to my room to have dinner, after dinner I decided to swim in their friendly pool located on the 2nd floor of the building and call it a night after.

I left the hotel around 7 am on my third day to catch the bus bound for Kota Kinabalu.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay at Badi'ah Hotel. When I come back to Brunei I am sure to stay here again.
