It’s been named Malaysia’s best hotel for families numerous times, and has made countless other top 10 lists. So, a stay here comes with plenty of prior recommendation from other very happy guests.
If Golden Sands Resort’s long list of things to do wasn’t enough, you’ll also have access to the facilities at sister resort, Shangri-La Rasa Sayang. A five-minute walk takes you to this five-star hotel, where you can pamper yourself in the spa with a relaxing treatment or two. Or you could take a seat in one of Rasa Sayang’s restaurants and tuck into cuisine from across the world.
This bright eatery looks out over the resort’s greenery and serves Malaysian and international dishes for the whole family. There’s a dedicated à la carte menu for kids, too.
Get stuck into Italian favourites on the sands of Batu Feringgi Beach, including homemade pasta and antipasti platters. You can sit in air-conditioned comfort or pull up a chair right by the beach.

In the heart of the resort, this covered lounge is the ideal place for mid-afternoon drinks or snacks. Sink into a bench and enjoy the tropical breeze.
You can order tasty dishes to your room anytime you like. Indulge in a midnight snack, savour a lazy breakfast on your balcony, or combat jetlag with nibbles at 3am.
