Shangri-La Golden Sands

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Travel -

At­trac­tive ho­tel grounds and an im­pres­sive white sandy beach set the scene for sea­side fun but they’re not the only at­trac­tions at Shangri-La Golden Sands. It is one of the few re­sorts that can boast its own theme park. The Adventure Zone Fam­ily En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre, which in­cludes slides, ar­cade games and jun­gle gym ac­tiv­i­ties like lad­der climbs and a fire­man’s pole, is per­fect for younger kids. Young teens too might en­joy some of the ac­tiv­i­ties as well as the Nin­tendo Wii con­soles.

Aside from the theme park, there’s plenty for kids to do. Re­cently re­vamped, the Cool Zone Kids Club is com­pli­men­tary for all in-house guests and wel­comes kids from the neigh­bour­ing Rasa Sayang Re­sort too. Con­ve­niently open from 9.30am-9pm daily, the club caters for kids aged 5-12 years old and of­fers ac­tiv­i­ties like T-shirt or batik paint­ing, lan­tern mak­ing, mask mak­ing, movie screen­ings and sand sculpt­ing.

Don’t for­get to sign your kids up for the Kid’s Pass­port which en­ti­tles chil­dren aged 4-12 years old to spe­cial dis­counts on meals (try Sigi’s for kid-friendly food and fun) as well as three hours of play­time at Adventure Zone and even a com­pli­men­tary ice cream, lunch and sou­venir T-shirt. The pass­port costs RM60 for one day and RM100 for two days.

Fi­nally, some of the re­sort’s beau­ti­ful breezy rooms come with an ex­tra kid-friendly touch – the pull-down Mur­phy bed. This child­sized bed can be stowed up dur­ing the day, cre­at­ing more space in the room for the fam­ily.
