We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a contiki tour. A really fantastic place. Rooms are simple no fuss but really all you need (more than I would expect for a backpackers). The staff were great and suited the resort perfectly. There is a lovely pool to enjoy and the beach is just a few steps away.... More

Had a blast here, the lads who run the place work hard to make sure everyone has a great time. The best place to meet travellers from the world over. Super nice dorms and a lively bar on site. Reception can organise activities, taxis etc and there's another great bar by the pool. Chur

It's right beside one of the nicest beaches on the island , and also the onsite swimming pool is great to chill out... More

Shiralea is an awesome place. The best resort on Koh Phangan, just few steps from the beach. I've spent there a week and everything was amazing - starting from the houses, dorm, restaurant, bar, swimming pool and staff. There was a very nice atmosphere among people.

Shiralea is a great resort on the best beach on Koh Phangan. My girlfriend and I stayed at Shiralea for a week in February and found the bungalows are a great size and very well maintained and sit in a lovely garden area with relaxed feel. The bar area is the real hub of the resort and great place to... More

When we were dropped off at Shiralea we were a bit worried as there wasn't a person in sight. We had a wander around to look for the bar as there was no one at reception due to the time of year. When we found the bar, we loved it. Really chilled out with reggae music, hammocks and an overall... More
