STARLODGE Brunei officially opened its doors yesterday following a year of major renovation works and is set to cater to the country’s growing business and leisure tourism market.
Officially launching StarLodge at the hotel’s premises in the heart of Jerudong yesterday was the guest of honour, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Industry and Primary Resources (MIPR), Hjh Normah Suria Hayati Pehin Jawatan Dalam Seri Maharaja Dato Seri Utama Dr Hj Awg Mohd Jamil Al-Sufri, who signed on a giant backdrop and later released Koi fish into a pond to mark the launch, which concluded with a re-ception at the Banquet Hall.
Strategically located near the Jerudong Park Playground and accessible from the Tutong-Muara Highway, StarLodge Brunei has 88 guest rooms designed in earth-tone colours to deliver a restful yet fun stay with a comfortable work environment.
