Holiday Staycation at Badiah Hotel

Brunei is the 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. Luckily, I found the badiah hotel while checking. The location was not really in the center of Bandar Seri Begawan, but not a problem since the hotel was located about a kilometer from the King Palace. 

I arrived at Brunei International Airport around 10:10 pm from Manila, Philippines. Upon arrival, the hotel staff 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 staff who picked me up were so entertaining; they were 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 hotel's location is tranquil and few meters from 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 me a 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 a 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 was hungry, luckily they were still open. I ordered a set meal of chicken curry and noodles, I forgot the name of noodles, but it is delicious.

I slept well in their very comfortable bed with a full blast of air-conditioned. The next morning, I woke up early to take my breakfast to the 1st floor, where the food was served because my friend would 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 with them.

It was 6:30 pm when my friend dropped me off at the hotel. I decided to walk around near the place and found a small restaurant at the back of Badi'ah. It is 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 for an 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 to catch the bus bound for Kota Kinabalu on my third day.

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

Check the discounted price.
