Great resort, personal service & far exceeds backpackers standards. Best resort I've stayed. Food was amazing - Kung is a food goddess ! Try the banana pancakes in the morning, the tom yum soup, pad thai and the papaya salad if you like really spicy food !). I loved the hammocks and the cushions on the floor in the lounge... More

I Originally planned to stay at this resort for just a few days. But then I fell in love with it. Everything about the place was brilliant. I genuinely can't say a single bad thing about it. If youre ever on this beautiful island, do yourself a favour and stay here. You won't regret it whatsoever.

I stayed for 1 week at Shiralea Backpackers Resort in July 2011. The rooms were clean and large and the facilities were great. Especially the food. The Coriander Burger was one of the best I have ever tasted. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I will hopefully be visiting Thailand again and I am very much looking forward to returning...

Had an amazing experience staying at Shiralea, cheap bungalows that are basic but clean all you really need, loved the hammocks on the balconies! Such a friendly atmosphere- all the staff are great, especially Seb the manager- he is awesome :) Sit and relax in the restaurant/bar area on the floor cushions or in the hammock watching a movie drinking...

Fed up of the hustle and bustle we booked Shiralea at the last minute for the full moon 10/11/2011. To be honest we were looking closer to Haad Rin but so glad we decided on the gamble of going further north. What an eye opener, little bungalow with a fan, bed, few shelves and shower/toilet room. No T.V but when... More

Had the most fantastic time at Shiralea...really enjoyed the family atmosphere! The staff were great, they looked after us- organised things for us-made our lives so much easier! 5 mins from the beach and a massage, it really was the ideal location! (not forgetting, being just a taxi ride away from the famous full moon beach!) Great rooms, great location,... More

Definitely a must in Koh Phangan!!! The first time in summer '10 was such a blast that we couldn't help ourselves and went back again last summer since we were "around" (indonesia is not that close but that shows how much we love Shiralea!)

We found this a great resort- felt more like a holiday-maker than a backpacker here yet it had backpacker prices! Lovely fan and air-con bungalows with a nice pool and the beach 5 minutes away. We also found the staff good fun and great customer service! Would recommend Shiralea as a place for backpackers after some luxury without wanting to... More
