About the Hotel
Hotel Facilities
Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La really allows you to experience Penang Islands tropical charms in a warm and inviting way. A four-star property with pride of place along the famous Jalan Batu Ferringgi, it is set next door to sister property Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa and this beachfront hotel is no less impressive than its sibling. A stylish addition to an area thin on unstuffy accommodation, it is incredibly popular with families and recreational facilities are abundant. Here, guests can take part in fun activities such as water volleyball, petanque (a fun French outdoor game) and beach soccer. Additionally at Golden Sands Resort, there is also a nine-hole golf course, three tennis courts, fitness centre, two lagoon-shaped swimming pools (one with a whirlpool), a kids pool with waterslide and the 10,300 sq ft Adventure Zone, a family entertainment centre with drop slides and modular play equipment. Whats more, the hotel also hosts tai chi classes each morning on its well manicured lawns, plus daily kids-only game competitions (sand-sculpting, coconut bowling, pool contests and more). Ranging in size from 36 sqm to 66 sqm, tropical influence is reflected in all 387 rooms and suites (divided into four categories). Each unit offers views of the hillside or ocean and when it comes to bedding down, guests can expect fluffy duvets and a pillow menu from which to choose the best head support.
