This is the first time I am travel to an island with my friends. we have 4 persons staying in one chalet with two queen size bed, generally we don't watch TV since we go there for vacation and snorkeling. While we were there, there was little construction here and there but it doesn't affect us. I like the sunset... More

I stayed here two weeks ago. Five adults plus two toddlers in VIP Sea view chalet and two in standard room. I got a direct deal with the resort, and paid for boat transfer too. 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.

I have stayed for 3 days 2 nights at this resort. Located at Coral Bay, Perhentian kecil Islands. Once I step into this resort, this place is really peaceful with trees, sound of wave and 'Kampung' (Malaysia Tradisional Village) style of Chalet with air conditioner. (I like the Chalet by the way) Facilities like swimming pool, wifi, surau, outside toilet... More

First impression when I checked in was the rooms were clean and well taken care of despite old looking. Part of the charm of Sharila resort is the abundance of trees surrounding the chalets and its own private beach. It's also a doorstep away PADI instructors. Most importantly the staff were friendly and honest. I tend to misplace my things... More

The hotel is very conveniently located by the jetty. The resort is one of the best in Perhentian Kecil. The only setback is that the rooms are dull and gloomy with no view. The food is wonderful and you can walk around the beach for more food as well.

Front desk asked for deposits for security purposes and refused to refund the deposit after checking out because they told that they're not keeping our payment receipt (said that we... More
