Fine Family Fun
02 September 2015
Our family is very lucky.
Every year around June or July when the winter cold sets in in southern Australia we manage to fly to Asia for a holiday in the sun.
We tend to choose somewhere different each year but will allways choose a Shangri la Hotel if there is one where we are going.
Lucky for us there is lots of Shangri la hotels!
Last week I asked my 6 year old daughter which hotel was her favourite out of all of the hotels we have stayed at.
Her response was swift and firm.
"I liked the hotel with the slides and the snake show" she said.
I knew Straight away she was talking about the Golden Sands resort in Penang.
I agreed with her assessment wholeheartedly.
This conversation made me think about what constitutes a perfect family resort and why the Golden Sands by Shangri la delivers in spades.
Our Daughter will always claim its about having lots of fun things to do .like the kids club ,adventure zone play area ,water slides in the pool and great activities such as the once a week snake show.
For Mum and Dad those things are important so we get some time together but we also need some balance between kid friendly and
The Golden Sands Resort Provided all these things.
My wife loves a Hotel Buffet breakfast as do I and I particularly enjoyed trying some of the Malaysian specialities like Roti Chanai.
The delicious flaky flatbread with fragrant curry is to die for.
Top this off with friendly service and beautiful rooms and this is the perfect holiday resort.
We also like a lively local area with a bit going on an Batu Ferenghi provides once again with the colourful night markets just outside the door.
Penang itself has many interesting places to visit just a short taxi ride.
We particularly enjoyed historical Georgetown and the funicular railway.
All in all I have to agree with our daughter that for fine family fun its hard to go past the Golden Sands resort by Shangri la at Batu Ferrenghi beach in Penang Malaysia.
