I came here with contiki and it was party central. The staff were bloody fantastic! The food was awesome. Drinks were also awesome. Rooms were clean and basic. I stayed during a full moon party. The before party was epic and the staff went out of their way to ensure the safety of us at the full moon.Yes it's 40mins... More

I stayed here 3 nights as part of a Contiki Tour and as soon as we entered the place I felt welcomed. The staff are very friendly and the surroundings are amazing. The pool was salt water, this usually would annoy me, but it was well filtered and relaxing. We where here during a full moon party, so they allowed... More

I picked Haad Yao based on a previous trip of it being relaxing and a quieter part of the island. The staff were very welcoming and friendly at all times. The location is great, very close to the beach and the main roads for getting around the island. There is a 7-11 and a travel shop nearby. The facilities are... More

We went to the island in between parties and even though everywhere else was pretty dead Shiralea still had a bit of a buzz going on. It's clean, modern and stylish with good facilities. The staff are a lovely bunch of guys and the food is good value and tasty. Nice pool and great value simple rooms - 500 for... More

I'm going to start with the only downside of this awesome place which is the location, if you're going to the full or half moon party then you're gonna need to get a taxi there or do what we did and rent mopeds, it's miles away and takes about half an hour by moped to get to say the full... More

The place is quite good. They have a swimming pool, nice green territory, not far from the sea. Cottages are quite simple, nothing special but they have AC and a hammock on the small pre-entrance area. Other "+" is the European staff. They are helpful and easygoing people. The huge disadvantage is a loud music in the bar. We asked... More

Superficially, I’m happy to agree with the glowing Tripadvisor reviews that led us here. The bungalow is clean, fairly spacious and thoughtfully designed - the bathroom especially is very nice. The pillows are a little large and hard, and one of our windows was missing one of it’s curtains, but these are small points - overall, very nice. The grounds... More

I was recommended to stay at the Shiralea - the last night of my travels through Australia and Thailand. When getting there it was peaceful and tranquil. The room was perfect with an en suit, and a hammock on the porch way. The bar/restaurant was great and just down a few steps was the pool (with a pool bar too),... More

We stayed for nine days it was nice and relaxing, staff were great fun always up for a laugh. I would say if u can't handle humid heat stay in an air con room its worth paying that little more a night for comfort. Loved it.

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.

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.
