I stayed here as part of a Contiki tour recently and I loved this place. The food was awsome and reasonably priced with a wide choice of thai and western. The areas to relax were great, especially the TV area with the huge bean bags. There is a really great atmosphere here especially with the bambooski shots and bell at... More

Stayed at Shiralea as part of a Contiki tour. Set in a nice area, close to the beach. The bungalows are basic but just what you need. The food was lovely and the drinks menu was amazing! Be prepared for a messy time with the shot bell and bambooski stick.. Drinks deals every night.

I stayed at Shiralea resort for 7 nights and did not want to leave! The friendly and wild staff make your stay at Shiralea an inconceivable experience and would recommend it to any party goers who want to get loose and have a good time.

Great atmosphere, amazing staff who are super friendly and always up for a laugh and good time. The grounds are beautiful and well laid out. Nice rooms with aircon. Super close to the beach and great bars/restaurants. Highly recommend this haven on Koh Phangan! Only good times to be had!

We stayed in Shiralea for 3 nights, during our visit and tour in Thailand. The whole is resort is awesome, clean surroundings and a nice central bar/reception/restaurant/relax place. The huts we stayed were nice but they could be nicer. The toilet/Shower room was not so good, and the room was not air conditioned and poorly cleaned. There was only an... More

I stayed here as part of a tour. I would never have chosen this resort if I had the option. It was disgusting. Literally a hole in a wall kind of place. I suggest spending some extra money and staying at a resort where you will not run into any problems. We had many problems at this resort. A) The... More

I stayed here with a friend on a holiday tour and the guys who ran this resort were amazing. Really friendly, great food, cheap prices, own pool, music and all round good atmosphere! Also had a laundry service which was handy after traveling the islands! Air con in the rooms, comfy beds.

If you like to hang by the pool, eat good food, meet new cool people and party during the night - Shiralea has everything you need! The rooms are nice and clean, but most of your time will probably be spent in the common area. The staff is superfriendly and helpful at all times. Especially the italian/australian guy (Stev?), he... More
