Golden Sands Resort (GPS: 5.477050, 100.251639) is a resort hotel in Batu Ferringhi. As with Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa next door, it is owned and operated by Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts. The hotel is conveniently located, with its entrance facing Batu Ferringhi village, while the golden sands of Batu Ferringhi is behind it. It opened in 1979, and according to what I learned, was built using profit generated by the highly successful Rasa Sayang Resort, which opened 6 years earlier. The 4-star Golden Sands Resort is surrounded by a lot of greenery, to give the area a leafy appearance.

Golden Sands Resort offers a selection of rooms and suites. They include the Superior Room, Deluxe Seafacing room, the Executive Seaview Room and the Executive Suite. Rooms and suites are equipped with LCD television with satellite channels, complimentary wifi access, DVD player, inhouse movie channels, audiovisual panel, bathrobes, slippers, toiletries, in-room locker, International Direct Dial telephone and mini refrigerator, among others.

The main eatery at Golden Sands Resort is Garden Café, located within the main building. A short distance away is Sigi's Bar & Grill. In addition, there is a lobby lounge and the air-conditioned Cool Lounge.

Among the facilities at Golden Sands Resort include a swimming pool, fitness centre, family entertainment centre, tennis courts, foot reflexology and a par-3 pitch-and-putt golf course.

The beach at Golden Sands Resort

Spread out behind Golden Sands Resort is the Batu Ferringhi beach, a wide expanse of golden sand, punctuated nowadays with the huts of vendors providing watersports activities. The lawn area of Golden Sands is actually contiguous to that of Rasa Sayang, but rather than visiting the last hotel in my survey from the back, we exited Golden Sands from the front entrance to go next door.
