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

All the staff were really friendly and helpful with most of them being from Australia and New Zealand. Also at night they were more then happy to get drunk with you. The atmosphere is everything you want from a stay at Koh Phangan and would definitely recommend staying here if you're doing the full moon parties. I've already booked to... 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
