Hard Rock Ho­tel Pe­nang

Jalan Batu Fer­ringhi (04 881 1711/ www.hardrock­ho­tels.net). Lo­cated near the end of the Fer­ringhi Beach, Hard Rock Ho­tel is a great choice if you want to keep the kids oc­cu­pied while you sip on a cock­tail or two. It’s clear to see that Hard Rock takes its younger guests se­ri­ously, es­pe­cially when the kids’ wa­ter play­ground comes with wa­ter guns and slides. Rox­ity Kids’ Club (open to kids aged four to 12 years) is where the kids can en­joy arts and crafts, video games, face paint­ing and board games, while the Teens Club pro­vides fin­ger ex­er­cise with Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 con­soles. Foos­ball, pool ta­bles and a pri­vate cinema are other means of whiling away one’s time.

PARKROYAL Pe­nang

Jalan Batu Fer­ringhi (04 881 1133/ www.parkroy­al­ho­tels.com). Life’s a beach at PARKROYAL Pe­nang. Airy and spa­cious, the lobby ex­tends to the breezy Ja­vana Lounge, where fans swirl lazily and guests re­cline on rat­tan chairs. Kids will es­pe­cially love the 70-foot-long slide at the splash pool and bud­ding beauty queens can visit St Gre­gory’s, the ho­tel’s spa, for ser­vices such as mani-pedis, hair-braid­ing and ju­nior fa­cials. Sun­day buf­fets are a high­light with clowns, games and presents for the kids. PARKROYAL also houses a mini li­brary and pro­vides PS2 con­soles for gam­ing ad­dicts. Pen­cil in some ro­man­tic time with your spouse by leav­ing the kids at the Koko-Nut Kids’ Club, which of­fers fun and ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties all su­per­vised by trained staff.

Shangri-La Golden Sands Re­sort

Jalan Batu Fer­ringhi (04 886 1911/ www.shangri-la.com). Few ho­tels can boast of their very own mini theme park. Ex­cel­lent for the lit­tle ones, the Ad­ven­ture Zone pro­vides one-of-a-kind fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment. The 10,300 sq ft air- con­di­tioned in­door fa­cil­ity houses ex­cit­ing drop slides, mo­du­lar play equip­ment, a game zone, a tod­dler area, themed birth­day party rooms and a café. There’s also a Kids’ Club with com­pli­men­tary or­gan­ised ac­tiv­i­ties for the lit­tle ones. Ad­di­tion­ally, more games and fun can be found at the Cool Lounge, a spe­cially des­ig­nated en­ter­tain­ment area where kids can play board games, card games, read or surf the net. Re­gional and in­ter­na­tional cui­sine as well as spe­cial kids’ menus pro­vide di­verse and ex­cit­ing din­ing op­tions for trav­el­ling fam­i­lies.
