Kid-Friendly Golden Sands Penang Launches More Fun For Kids with Splash Pad Mini Water Park

Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La is on a colourful and energetic mission to be the most kid-friendly hotel in Penang … and they’ve just launched The Splash Pad to prove it. Being the best ‘fun for kids’ resort is something they take seriously and safety plays a huge part in it. The Splash Pad is the first of its kind in Penang and uses a special system to manage the water that keeps it ‘natural’ and suitable for all children.  And of course, it’s just super awesome and fun to play in 🙂

Why Golden Sands is the Best Kid-Friendly Hotel in Penang

Golden Sands really does have a ton of activities to keep kids busy with fun things to do all day long. Everything from masque making, movie time, giant Jenga, arts and crafts (even sand castle making!), kite flying, and electronic games. They offer child care and ‘Kids Eat Free’ programmes when accompanied by a paying adult.  And now … the NEW Splash Pad!

The Splash Zone is a one-stop spot for HOURS of good, clean fun that includes:

  • Quirky and vibrant sculptures that kids are drawn to, with colourful archways that spray water to keep them cool
  • Various water slides, one that is 30 metres long with a landing pool
  • A water bucket that tips over from time to time that the kids absolutely love
  • Dolphin-shaped water cannons (and butterfly, turtle, monkey and rabbits, too!)

The Splash Zone is located between the two big pools, combines the sensation of water movements and interactive play elements in a safe “zero- depth” water play area. The mini water park with a non-slip flooring is constructed on a concrete slab with twisting roots fitted with water jets and mists shooting out in different patterns and directions.

According to the team at Golden Sands, the Splash Zone complements the existing all-time favourite, Adventure Zone, the largest dry indoor playground for children in Penang. The Adventure Zone, which has 10,300 square feet of space, is split into two levels and features the Hyperglide Astra Slides, Double Slides and Demon Drop Slides, a 26 foot vertical drop for the brave ones.
