"Relaxing Week Away" Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La Tip by amansfield
Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La, Penang: 2,784 reviews and 10 photos
We stayed here for a week in Jul 06. We paid the extra for a sea facing room and it is definitely worth the money! The buffet breakfast is quite good (no bacon though) but had Indian, Korean, Western and other foods. There are activities each day such as cocktail making and cooking classes. The pool area is quite large but probably not a big as some we have been to in Thailand. The resort has its own area of beach which hawkers are not allowed on, but if you would like a massage etc you just walk about 100m. We didn't eat in the restaurants as there is a huge hawker area directly across the road. The food was ridiculously cheap as was the beer so we ate there virtually every night. There are stalls selling pirated DVDs etc on the roads out the front. The resort also has a free shuttle bus to Georgetown if you are up for some serious shopping.
Address: Batu Feringgi Beach
Price Comparison: about average
