A mega-watt family-friendly resort on Batu Feringgi beach that is home to a one-off children's adventure zone, a host of local activities and stunning luxury accommodation.

Golden Sands resort is big and bustling and not as intimate as some, but it was designed with family-friendly luxury in mind and absolutely delivers. Owned by the incredible Shangri-La group, this has all the markings of serious, sumptuous luxury but with plenty to keep the whole family happy. The 10,300 metre square Adventure Zone is one-of-a-kind (and also houses an excellent kid’s club,) and the several on-site restaurants offer delectable adult and children’s dishes that can be enjoyed anywhere, from your room to the pool, the garden café to the beach.

For You -

Segway personal transporters (which older children will adore as well) to get you about the resort with ease. The organized jungle walk is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the resort’s natural environment, while onsite you can learn Congkak (a local Malay game,) palmistry or local cooking.

For Them +

The Adventure Zone, which is a giant adventure area located on Batu Feringgi beach between The Golden Sands Resort and its sister-hotel and neighbor, The Shangri La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa. Aside from the endless slides and climbing areas there is the “Toddler Zone” for 4 year olds and under, which includes a ball pool, “swinging snakes,” bish bags and a play kitchen. For older children there is a plethora of ramps, poles, swings, squeeze rollers and bridges to explore, while a third area has the requisite teenage Nintendo Wii consoles, air hockey and arcade games.
