#1 Value-added Family Fun Package

Valid now until 22 December 2017, with a rate starting from RM550 (around S$175) for two adults and two children below 12 years, this package is super ideal for your family getaway. Aside from accommodation (there’s a complimentary bed for an extra child below 12 if required, by the way), the deal includes not just daily buffet breakfasts for all four of you at Garden Café, but dinner too – either a buffet or set dinner with free-flowing soft drinks, juices, house wine or house beer.

That’s not all. There’s also unlimited complimentary access to the resort’s Adventure Zone for two kids! Plus, for each day of your stay, children aged five to 12 years of age can enjoy free access to the Cool Zone Kids’ Club, which features fun activities from 9.30am to 9pm, along with free lunch and dinner. Other additions include access to complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the resort, and a daily free shuttle to and from George Town (20 minutes away).

#2 Splash Zone

This 200-square-metre water park is the resort’s latest attraction and a complement to the existing Adventure Zone. It has non-slip flooring and a “zero-depth” water play area, which means it’s an accident-free spot for the kids. There are water jets and mists shooting out in different patterns and directions, whimsical sculptures, water slides – one of which is 30m long – a landing pool, tipping water buckets and cones, and water sprays in the shape of animals. In short, it’s an unlimited outdoor fun for children in a safe area!

#3 Adventure Zone

Adventure Zone is the resort’s existing all-time favourite dry indoor playground – the largest of its kind in Penang, and bound to catch your child’s attention. The space is split into two levels and features Hyperglide Astra Slides, Double Slides and Demon Drop Slides, including a 26-foot vertical drop for the brave and adventurous ones!

#4 Daily activities and child-minding services

When your kids have (finally!) had their fill of the Adventure Zone and Splash Zone, the resort has other daily activities in store to keep them entertained, including craft making, sandcastle building, movies and traditional Malaysian games. And, parents? If you’re thinking of sneaking out for a bit to take a breather without the brood, the resort offers child-minding services too – you only have to book 24 hours in advance to be sorted!
