Golden Sands Resort

Golden Sands Resort is a hotel under the umbrella of the internationally acclaimed Malaysian-founded Shangri-La hospitality company. It is situated along the tourist beach strip of Batu Ferringhi, on the north-east end of Penang Island.

Their rooms were clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. I especially liked the wood-carving at the headboard of the bed and behind the sofa in the lounge room of the Executive Suite.

I had the opportunity to stay at this resort twice - both times in rooms that had commanding views of the pool area, beach and ocean. Although facing the pool, both times I was fortunate to be in rooms that were high enough to not be bothered by pool-goers.

Just the view of the pool and sea is enough to make anyone feel guilty for not going down there for a splash!

A little hard to think that it would not be enjoyable - there is a Haagen-Dazs ice-cream stand to start of temptations!

And so yes, I did end up soaking my feet in the pool with ice-cream in hand. Both times.

The resort has its own designated beach area, so it is perfect for a morning or sunset stroll, as it wouldn't be overcrowded.

And although I didn't take any photos of breakfast, I do think that their breakfast buffet isn't too bad.
