Booked a suite room. The room interior is simple and dark. Our room was placed right next to a construction and at an isolated area. We requested to change our room, however there weren't any more rooms available. Thankfully, during our stay of 3 days 2 night, there's no construction. Or else, the room will be dusty and noisy in... More

We signed up a 3D2N snorkelling package and extended 2N due to the flights availabilty. Standard chalet was ok but quite a long way to walk. There is a nice little kids pool with a small slide and a small mini-shop nearby offering burgers from Rm5. Hot water shower not consistent and water pressure is low in the early evening.... More

DO NOT TRUST ALL THE GOOD REVIEWS!! I stayed here with my boyfriend last week and it was a diaster. We booked the family suite for comfort and we were given a room with construction occurring directly infront of the chalet with malaysian men showering on the step of the chalet. The toilet was also completely broken. We asked to... More

8 of us (average age 60 years) spend one week here first week in July 2014, and we loved it! The location is amazing. The staff are wonderful. The breakfasts were more than suitable!!! I found the rooms a little "hectic" and dark, but it was all a part of the experience. We didnt spend much time in the rooms... More

If you want a little luxury I have no doubt this is the best value "resort" in Coral Bay. There's no hot water, some simple maintenance issues such as smashed holes in ceramic bathroom basin, broken light bulbs etc. no attention to detail, sadly let down by some rude staff in the restaurant, overall Shari-La will please you. Don't expect... More

We had a good experience at Shari-la with our children aged 10,9 &7. Air con worked well, and although some areas of the room were quite shabby (broken taps, holes in apolstery) it did not affect our enjoyment. The children loved the small splash pool. Breakfasts good and snorkelling with the hotels driver was great and very affordable for a... More

Had been there last month and this place created great memories for me. I love the surrounding, foods and service. My fav part is watching sunset near this resort. Overall, I satisfy and plan to go to Pulau Perhentian again.

This place could really be so much better. The rooms are really nice, but are pretty dirty, mirrors and lamps covered in dust. The breakfast was fine but pancakes, french toast etc were always cold, even straight after brought out of kitchen. Table cloths were filthy at breakfast time. The beach area was pleasant, apart from the disgusting smell of... More

Customer Room 214 My 5 night stay at the Shari-la was far better than I expected for what I paid. Kecil is more expensive than most backpacker islands, but I read that there were unadvertised budget rooms to be had at the Shari-la on Kecil. The Shari-la was clearly a middle or upper-middle resort and so I was hoping the... More
