I travelled to this island due to the famous long beach, however it was quite pack during the season. Finally we plan to stay at Sharila. It is a great place in terms of snorkelling with kids because it has sort like private island in the resort. Although it is quite near to long beach, but a bit tiring because... More

Stayed here for a total of 8 nights. On the first day I thought I'd booked into the worst hotel ever but insisting on a change of room improved matters and with time the place grew on me. The hotel in many ways is weird and checking in feels like entering a time warp back to the 1970s but you... More

The location was amazing with its own snorkelling beach on Coral Bay with beach bar (no alcohol). The resort sits on a corner of the Aur beach and has a three quarters view. It is next door to the jetty so very convenient when arriving and leaving. The chalets are with air con and fan, basic shower (weak), beds were... More

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.

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
