Superior Room

With spectacular forest views at every turn, these rooms feature king size beds and deluxe bathrooms – with a cosy lounge area overlooking the treetops. In true Shangri-La style, the luxurious extras are plentiful – from designer toiletries to pillow menus.

Deluxe Room

Overlooking the gardens and resort pool, this room’s private balcony is a fabulous setting for sundowners. Inside, you’ll find a king size bed and modern marble bathroom – plus a pull-down bed for a child.

Executive Sea View

From the resort’s upper floors you can gaze out over the ocean – either from your private terrace or the comfort of your king size bed. You’ll love the ornate hand-carved wooden headboard and stylish décor, festooned with tropical blooms.

Additional room types available. Chat to your lovely Travel Consultant to find the perfect room to suit you, and let us tailor-make it easy.

Our Travel Consultants wholeheartedly recommend this resort for children, for the sheer breadth and quality of its amenities. As well as play areas and games that the whole family can get involved in, the Adventure Zone (shared with Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, next door) offers an excellent Kids’’ club for tots aged five to 12. Open all day, it has an ever-changing programme of activities and entertainment, and provides lunch and dinner too. Purchase a Kids’’ Passport, and little ones can enjoy fun perks aplenty – including a souvenir T-shirt, ice cream, and three hours of fun at the Adventure Zone. The Splash Zone’s slides and water cannons are perfect for cooling off on hot days, and most of the restaurants offer children’s menus too. With stroller rentals, baby cots and bottle sterilisation available, you can travel a little lighter than usual – and babysitting services are available on request.

In a lush open-air setting overlooking the tropical grounds, Garden Café serves international and local dishes galore – from breakfast buffets to sumptuous à la carte suppers. Kids’ are well catered-for too, with a fresh menu of healthy bites – while the theme nights and special buffets are always decadent and delicious. For Italian favourites in a laid-back beach setting, head to Sigi’s – where the seafood is always fresh, the barbecue is always sizzling, and the service is always top-notch. Bag a table on the upper deck for breezily beautiful sea views.

Ask our Flight Centre Concierge team about booking your restaurants in advance.

Why we recommend Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La

Designed with families in mind, Golden Sands is surrounded by swaying coconut palms and beautiful gardens – a spectacular setting for hide-and-seek! Rooms and suites feature rollaway beds which are perfect for children, while parents travelling with babies can make use of the bottle sterilisation service, complimentary cots and pushchairs. The expansive indoor Adventure Zone offers entertainment for all the family – or, if you fancy some time alone, the Cool Zone Kids’’ Club will keep little ones entertained all day. Our Travel Consultants recommend a relaxing morning in the two lagoon-shaped swimming pools, a leisurely seaside lunch at Sigi’s, and a game on the nine-hole golf course. For all-out pampering, head to CHI, The Spa, at the resort’s sister hotel just next door.
