Such a great place to stay, couple of minutes walk to beach and if the beach isn't for you theres the pool. Also short drive to more of the beautiful beaches on Koh Phangan. Rooms/ showers and toilets are spacious and clean. Hot water is a bonus. The staff are really friendly. Had a little issue with house keeping but... More

Nice cute clean and super-cheap dormitory with a/c. Perfect place for adventurers who like easy-going folks for socializing and partying cause people like here to drink'n'fun until late night. Useful for journeymen who desire to save some cash on sleeping place, dorm is extremly cheap. But be prepared for beighbours coming back in your room drunk and slowly laying their... More

We recently stayed at Shiralea only for a couple of nights but had a wicked time... We turned up during a massive down pour of rain and getting to and from the island was a nightmare with boats being cancelled to some islands and super choppy crossing. On arrival we immediately felt at home. Dan and the guys there were... More

There are three types of bungalows, the simple ones made of bamboo, type 2, kinda in between and the most luxurious ones are bigger and have AC. Initially we booked a simple fan bungalow, but we had some problems with the lock as we could't get into our house. The next day the manager came to tell us that we... More

Great atmosphere in the bar! Food was great too, had the best burger i ever had in Thailand! Was quite loud during the night, but what can you expect from... More

We stayed in Shiralea for two weeks and had the best time. The staff is amazing, the food in the resturant is good and cheep, probablly the best location in Kohpangan- Its is located in the jungle but five minute walk to the best beach on the island.. In short very recomended!

Great resort with friendly staff. Relaxed, chilled atmosphere. Big lounge area which offers a bar with a variety of food and drink. Away from the hustle and bustle of the full moon party but does take 40mins to get there which is the only downside. Definitely will be staying here again.

Absolutely loved this place! The rooms were clean and great value for money, in the mixed rooms you get a curtain across your bed so its totally private and your own locker in the room. The bungalows were also great and not much more expensive. bar staff are so friendly and the place had such a relaxed atmosphere. Would go... More

Recently stated a few days at this resort. From the friendly welcome from Nate and his staff to the comfy him knees if my bungalow I felt at home immediately. Great atmosphere. Beautiful grounds. Pool on grounds. A cold beer or anything you wanted at the bar. A short stroll and you are on the beach with plenty of massage... More
