Don't expect a 5star hotel on this part of the Perhentian Islands as is targeted for the budget traveler. But for what its worth, this place is really good compared to the other accommodations. We took a standard room which was small but clean and comfortable. We can't complain, came with breakfast, hot water showers and a great 'private' beach.... More

We stayed here twice on the first and last day of our time in Coral Bay as it was booked up the other days. Shari La was much nicer and better value than the other place we stayed (Senje). Stayed in the standard rooms (bungalow/chalet) which were nice, rooms have a fridge, air con, 24hr electricity and hot water, all... More

Rooms were clean but were too dimly lit with a dodgy lamp on the table which would turn on/off when the table drawer was opened and closed and when we walked over a section of the floor. The shower water temperature was difficult to adjust: water from the water heater was consistent but was not effective enough to heat the... More

I thought this hotel looked dark and gloomy in the pictures but the walls are actually quite stylish and unusual. We stayed in two different rooms due to it being busy. Both had patchy but adequate hot water and quite low lighting, but they were clean and comfortable. We were a few minutes walk from the office and beaches but... More

The staffs at the reception are excellent. Credits to them as they helped me to contact our ferry operator as we have lost our tickets enroute home. The rooms are pretty basic. The only set back is the hot water shower which doesn't work.

This hotel has a very big location, my room was further in the back of the hotel and far from the beach. I don't really like this hotel, even the staff were friendly and the room was clean. With the location of my room, the value that I paid was not satisfy me.

The resort itself has a nice enviroment, plenty of private corners to enjoy with friend or family. The chalet is nothing to write home. Fridge doesn't work and there is no hot shower. But these didn't spoilt my mood! I took 1 day snorking trip and the 2nd day i spent more than 6 hours snorking at the private beach,... More

It's hard to review the hotel without reviewing the destination itself. So the first remark goes for Pulau Perhentian Kecil, an exceptional paradisiac island, which goes in the list of the car-free paradises that still exist. Moving along to the Hotel: It is the first hotel when you get off the jetty in Coral Bay, with a beautifull setting that... More

The resort is very well set up in a great location. Own beach is lovely, and right next to jetty for mainland. Has restaurants and little stores along bay too. Rooms were ok. Wish there was a few windows for natural light. Can see it is best in area though with air con and hot water. Nice and clean with... More

Yes all other good review says the right recommendation for this place. Considering the poor quality accommodation elsewhere , and not value for money ( other places charge RM 150 and not upto the standard) . I find Shari La is the best overall in Perhenthian Kecil I researched some other accommodation elsewhere in the island, and I find it... More
