Location, location, location. Theres not a lot of high end options in Perhention Islands, hence Shari La is one of the better options. The chalets are cozy, nice surroundings. Small private snorkeling beach with sunset, very nice staff in reception, quite comfy beds, quite clean as well. BUT! Considering a hefty price, the chalets were cozy but VERY badly maintained....

It was our first time in Perhentian. I would say if you prefer waking up to the view, this ain't the place for you. However, electricity wise, this place offers electricity-24 hours. I would recommend a stay here for those who prefer comfort over everything else. As the resort is in Coral Bay, you have to walk through the hill... More

Stayed in the resort for 2 nights. The telephone was spoilt, air-condition was not cold and the water heater was spoilt too. The water was way too hot for bathing. It is sufficient to half boil an egg. After which we ran out of water from the shower head and had to use pail and buckets to bathe instead. Occasion... More

Fantastic room service and breakfast. Splendid view by the beach enjoying the breeze and coffee altogether. Also, the hotel is placed very close by to the beach (1-2 mins walk) and everything is very convenient.

When the day came, we were told to go to the office near Kuala Besut Jetty, parked our cars, made payment, waited for the boatman... More

The resort is secluded with its own private beach which is always a plus point as it gives you a sense of privacy and they provide snorkeling gear with minimal charges. If your were to rent snorkel gear at the commonly visited beach , you might have to bargain. The hotel service was okay and the accommodation was pleasant with... More

You will definitely love this hotel if you are a nature-lover. Its just walking distance to the beach, night market and pubs. The room i stayed deserves a big WOW as it was fully made by wooden and it was in tiptop condition.
