GOLDEN SANDS RE­SORT

Expatriate Lifestyle - - Best Of Malaysia -

This well-estab­lished re­sort in Batu Fer­ringhi, Pe­nang, has long been a fam­ily favourite. Opened in 1979, this four-star Shangri-la proper ty has 387 rooms and suites with views of the sur­round­ing hills and sea, as well as a host of fa­cil­i­ties and ac­tiv­i­ties to keep ev­ery mem­ber of the fam­ily happy and oc­cu­pied. This makes it the per­fect des­ti­na­tion for week­end breaks and long school hol­i­days. There are in­ter-con­nect­ing rooms with Mur­phy pull-down beds, spe­cially cater­ing to fam­i­lies.

What makes this ho­tel truly stand out in this cat­e­gory are the fa­cil­i­ties for chil­dren, which in­cludes the Kids’ Club within the Ad­ven­ture Zone - the largest in­door play park on the is­land. There’s also the in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar mini wa­ter park where chil­dren can have fun on wa­ter slides and un­der tip­ping buck­ets, guar­an­teed to keep them oc­cu­pied for hours.

The re­sor t’s pools and man­i­cured grounds are spa­cious enough so guests can find a quiet cor ner to re­lax or par tic­i­pate in the var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties (classes for cook­ing, fit­ness and hand­i­craft) held through­out the day. Din­ing has al­ways been the strong point of the Shangri-la group and here there are sev­eral out­lets of­fer­ing the best lo­cal and Euro­pean cui­sine.
