This place was everything we expected upon reading the rave reviews on TA. The staff are excellent, food is incredible, and bungalows are basic but clean and comfortable. Great location, not far from the beach and a few lovely restaurants. On site facilities including large screen TV and pool table also huge bonuses. Excellent value for money! You won't regret...

Shiralea Backpackers Resort is exactly what we had hoped for when looking for Bungalows on Ko Phangan. The Bungalows are great, the staff is immensely helpful and always friendly, the pool is delightful, and they just put in new bathrooms. Super close to the beach. Personally I loved having all drinks and food charged to the room, truly allows you... More

Quieter side of the island which is nice. Took about 45 minutes to get to Haad Rin for Full Moon Party. Free Wifi in the bar and... More

Just plain awesome. Great value for the price. The staff makes this place what it is, especially V and Nat. 90 second walk to the beach. Great food. Drinks are a bit spendy, but they have to make money somewhere. Music can get loud late on the weekends, but this is a really fun place to be. I have no... More

Set on the stunning tropical island of Koh Pha Ngan - home to Thailand's famous 'full moon party' - Shiralea is a boutique resort designed to be a backpackers paradise. Welcome to a 'flashpacking' experience. Shiralea was built by a group of travellers who wanted a haven to return to. With a focus on 'good times' we created a friendly and vibrant atmosphere which puts our guests immediately at ease. Shiralea is a place where strangers become friends, we designed the resort with a social aspect which sets us apart, our guests love how they can do exactly what they want at Shiralea- whether that be a crazy night at the bar or a quiet one watching movies. Shiralea is the ideal spot to set up for a few days you'll never forget. Located 1 minutes walk from the beautiful Haad Yao beach. Our resort has all the creature comforts you could want and we cater for all budgets - hot showers, comfortable beds, wall-mounted fan or air conditioned bungalows, an ensuite in each bungalow and your own balcony with a hammock. In addition to our 30 bungalows, we have great facilities to keep you entertained, including a restaurant that offers delicious and well priced Thai and Western meals, a great bar, free wifi, large swimming pool with Jacuzzi and poolside bar, movie lounge, a games room with pool table and a massage hut.
