Shangri-la Golden Sands is particularly good for families, or just those that require a complete resort with excellent facilities and dining options…
Sister hotel to the Rasa Sayang and part of the Shangri-La Group. Shangri-la Golden Sands is a family friendly superior class hotel with extensive facilities. Located on Batu Feringgi Beach, 30 minutes from Georgetown and 55 minutes from the airport.
Shangri-la Golden Sands has 387 rooms, either offer inland or sea-facing views.
We particularly suggest the sea-facing rooms, with those on the higher floors having full sea view whilst those on the lower floor are sea facing albeit across the garden.
A further selection of family suites are available.
Main swimming pool and two smaller options including kids pool with water slide
A choice of restaurant style and location
An extremely well organised Kids Club and Adventure Zone (shared with the neighbouring Rasa Sayang Hotel)
Shangri-la Golden Sands is particularly good for families, or just those that require a complete resort with excellent facilities and dining options – both within the property and close by. The hill facing rooms are the lowest priced, but might be noisy, especially with the window open, given that you have village – complete with mosque – close by.
Note – Although you will find water sports offered by beach vendors, the arrangements are not covered by the hotel and as such are strictly at your own risk. It is quite likely the vendor will have no insurance, and it is possible any equipment might be intentionally faulty, to cause you extra expense.

Malaysia is one of the most fascinating countries in the region with a rich diversity of cultures, scenery and resort variety. Peninsula Malaysia stretches down from the border with Thailand in the north through to Singapore in the south. On the separate island of Borneo you have the states of Sarawak and Sabah. Flying time from UK is approx. 12 hours to Kuala Lumpur (known as KL). Onward travel to Penang or Langkawi is one hour, two hours to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and Kuching, Sarawak.
Kuala Lumpur, is the proud capital city, with high rise buildings, but just as many colourful older traditional areas. Lively street markets competing with luxurious shopping malls for the attention of your wallet. The prices are some of the most competitive in the region. Fantastic selection of restaurants fully reflecting the diversity of influences found in Malaysia, but with just as many culinary options from around the globe.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
