As part of Golden Sands Resort, Penang’s plans to capture the global family niche market, the hotel will revamp some of its features to enhance its children’s facilities. Exciting new features will be added to expand the children’s play areas by the middle of June 2016, while a children’s arts and crafts section is expected to be ready by the last quarter of 2016.
The new features include a splash pad and water slides, complete with a children’s pool, tipping water bucket, butterfly sprays, turtle water sprays, rainbow sprays, floor water jets, tipping cones and water cannons. The outdoor area for the splash zone is designed with safety in mind. The children’s pool will have two new water slides. The existing outdoor Jacuzzi will be redesigned and surrounded by rocks and a water feature to simulate the ambience of a natural pool in the garden.
The new family-fun concept supports existing facilities, such as the Adventure Zone, with 10,300 square feet of comprehensive indoor facilities, including Hyperglide Astra Slides, Double Slides and a Demon Drop Slide, a 24-foot vertical drop for older children.
Daily activities feature fun combinations to keep children occupied all day and include craft making, sandcastle building, mask making, origami, movies, puzzle solving, traditional Malaysian games, interactive play and electronic games and kite flying, with set times for meals. Childminding services are available for the convenience of parents; 24-hour advance booking is required.
Completing these new attractions are the Children’s Meal Plan and Kids Eat Free incentives. Under the Children’s Meal Plan for registered resort guests, up to two children under 12 years old can enjoy complimentary buffet meals when accompanied by a paying adult. A 50 per cent discount on the buffet price will be given in excess of two children under 12 years old.
