Shangri-La has been operating resorts on Penang longer than anyone else, and because it got here first, you can bet it laid claim to the best beach. Shangri-La has two neighboring properties on this site, Golden Sands and its more exclusive sister, Rasa Sayang. A four-star resort, Golden Sands is priced lower than the Rasa Sayang, so it attracts more families. The beach, pool area, and public spaces fill up fast, and folks are occupied all day with beach sports like parasailing and jet-skiing, and pool games. For the younger set, a large indoor playground is popular with kids under 12 while Mom and Dad relax. Rooms are large with full amenities, and the higher-priced categories have views of the pool and sea. A new round of renovations will be completed in mid-2009.
