BD3317 – guess what it is
Last weekend while a night at the ‘Idyllic Kampong Sungai Bunga,’ I found out a row of brand new chalets along the banks of the Brunei River, near the mouth of Brunei Bay.
The address is Simpang 912, Jalan Kota Batu but please bear in mind that the ‘Simpang’ post was no where to be found.
Luckily there are signboards which says something like ‘HT Enterprise Kawasan Ternakan Ketam …’ or it’s a crab-rearing area.
It’s about five kilometres from the Brunei Museums and its on your right if you are coming from Bandar.
The road leading to the chalets is just like a dirt road so I hope it will be improved sooner than later if the chalets are to be open for business.
Another thing is the road is a single lane so only one car can past through in one direction at a time.
Not a good welcome sign huh, so owners please improve the road access.
Your not-so-good road experience will melt away as soon as you arrive at the chalets.
There’s one area which look like a reception to me as it has a high-rise counter with a marble-look finish top.
The chalets are to the left with walkways connecting one chalet to another.
The rooms are just like hotel rooms, the two closest rooms I found out were for a single and double rooms.
There was also this big airy, building shaped like an octagon which I assume would be a restaurant as there were chairs and tables, still wrapped in plastic. The centre room was locked and the glass was tainted black so I could not see what’s inside. I imagine this would be for the air-conditioned part of the restaurant.
The unofficial info that I got was that the chalets are own by the same HT Enterprise which rears crab and fish commercially and is also in construction business. In fact its head-office is at the very Simpang 912.
I also heard that the opening will be in March, so that’s about a month away. No wonder there were workers trying to do a finishing touch when I was there.
I hope the pictures tell more of the story, after all a picture tells a thousand words (and am a bit tired of typing today). I will post about the family’s Kampong Sungai Bunga outing next.
By the way, BD3317 is the post code for Kampong Sungai Bunga.
