Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La is a beautiful, tropical resort located on Penang’s popular Batu Ferringhi beach. Incredibly popular with families, this resort has a plethora of facilities, from tennis courts and swimming pools to a water park and an adventure zone. Splash Zone, the resort’s water park never fails to please young children with it’s swimming pools, water jets, rainbow sprays and water cannons.
Families looking to explore Penang will be pleased to hear the resort is located just 20 minutes’ drive from the colonial city of George Town. This charming city plays host to a number of different cultures and religions and is both incredibly safe and unbelievably welcoming. It’s the perfect place for a morning walk and a traditional Malay lunch.
Back within the resort, four restaurants and bars offer plenty of choice to families staying for longer durations. Our favourite venue is Sigi’s Bar & Grill as it serves up fresh Tex-Mex cuisine right next to the beach.
Few resorts cater for families the way Golden Sands Resort does and with the resort being just 50 minutes flight from Kuala Lumpur it’s perfect for families looking for an exciting, stress free twin centre holiday.
