The drive to Penang from anywhere south of Ipoh, or from the East Coast, is quite a long one. But the best bit of arriving on the island are the fancy hotels where you can finally put your feet up and relax. The Golden Sands Resort is one of the best to illustrate this and also one of the better knowns hotel in Penang.

Recently, they have added their latest attraction called the Splash Zone. Measuring 200 square metres, 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.


Just seeing the water slides – one of which measures 30 metres long – is a strong invitation no child can ignore. Also featured at the Splash Zone are tipping water bucket and cones, water sprays in the shape of dolphins, butterflies, turtles, monkeys and squirrel and water cannons.

All this adds to the other activities children can immerse themselves in namely craft making, sandcastle building, mask making, origami, movies, puzzle solving, a giant chess board, Jenga giant games, kite flying, traditional Malaysian games, interactive play and electronic games. Parents may also take advantage of the child-minding service provided by Golden Sands Resort.
