Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La

A family friendly tropical escape

Ideal for both beach and culture lovers alike, the Golden Sands Resort is situated on Batu Ferringhi Beach just a short walk from the famous night market. A complimentary shuttle service to George Town runs at certain times of the day so you can explore the colonial capital of Penang renowned for its delicious local cuisine and traditional shophouses. Back at the resort there's plenty to keep families occupied including a kids' club, the adventure zone entertainment centre, children’s swimming pool and children’s menus available in some of the restaurants. While the younger guests play, why not treat yourself to a pampering treatment at the Chi Spa? Alternatively relax around one of the two lagoon pools, play some golf on the small golf course, visit the onsite eco-centre and Turtle care project or enjoy a range of activities including tennis, table tennis, beach volleyball, beach football, petanque and Tai Chi.
