Finally after a year of waiting, we went to Penang with our kiddos, and also with two other families of Alisa Haqiqi and Rona Willis. Why a year? Because we had purchased the Air Asia ticket a year in advance. Yess of course we got a promo ticket, which cost IDR 49,000 one way, and in total with bagage, meals and the seats, it cost us total IDR 1,800,000 ; a return ticket for 2 adult + 2 children. Wow thank you Air Asia :)
We stayed at the Golden Sands Resort Penang around Batu Feringhi area. We spent months discussing where to stay. Parkroyal, Hard Rock and Holiday Inn were on the list beside the Golden Sands. We have read all the review of the hotel, and finally decide to stay at the Golden Sands Penang. We bought the hotel voucher from airasiago IDR 3,100,000 for a 3 night stay including breakfast for two adult and two children. And of course, it was on a sale when we bought the hotel voucher.
When we arrived at the hotel, we were relieved that we have choosen the best hotel in Batu Feringhi. Just 5 minutes walk we can get to KFC, just accross the road there is a brand new McD which was not yet open, and of course the famous hawker center Long Beach is in a walking distance.The check in process was fast, and we got two rooms for our early check in at about 11.30 am.
We had a superior hillview room, and this is the view from our room:
The room was really spacious, our kiddos loved it so much.
The swimming pool is awesome! It has many pools; jacuzzi, children pool, sliding pool, adult pools..what a resort :)
It's a front beach resort, the beach is just so so, however kiddos really enjoyed their time on the beach.
The breakfast has so many variety of food, but the taste were just ok.
Free wifi available in public area, whilst in the room you will have to use your laptop to plug in the internet cable. Our package includes a free internet from our room, but no one brought laptop. If you don't bring any wifi gadget, the hotel also provide a business center where you can use their internet PC for free.
This hotel is recommended, a very family friendly hotel with affordable price.
