The resort is very nicely situated just off the main pier. However very few rooms have ocean views. The private beach is quite small but they do have some loungers and you can snorkel right off it. Watch out for the little fish as they bite!! We liked the fact they were bungalows but they covered all the walls with... More

To be fair, in comparison with most of the accommodation I've seen on Perhentian Kecil this looks way better (and probably is). Bubu was full, and this looked like the next popular and ok-rated resort by other travellers that had free rooms. Cons (usually I start with Pros, but as I'm writing this, I'm pretty annoyed): - No towels in... More

In early August 2014, my partner and I spent 8 amazing days on the most beautiful Perhentian islands. There are limited places to stay near Coral bay/ Long beach, and Shari-La is one of the more accessible and pleasant places to stay. The term 'resort' doesn't mean much here - there are no luxuries to be had at this hotel,... More

Chalet inside was very nice, bed comfortable (no insects). Nothing to change. But forget about nice view from terrace. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant is included. There is a little rocky beach in shari-la resort, better to lay on the beach than to swim. Remember to book in advance, in july and august it is really hard to find good... More

We came here a bit early but they already had a room available which was very nice. The room is OK but there were a lot of defects in the room. The shower was not adjustable, only very hot. When you put on an extra water point it's OK but very strange. The bed is very hard and therefore not... More

The Perhentians really are a Malaysian Paradise. I must admit that when we arrived I was disappointed at first - our duplex cabin felt like it was a long way from the beach. Our room felt like a minimal existence and i didn't like the bathroom. There was no safe in our room and the owner told me that everything... More

The resort is great,from what I've seen is the best in kecil Island. It is made by individual chalets with their own porch. Accomodation is basic, especially the bathroom, you have to consider you are on a tropical island, but there is anything you need on a beach vacation on a tropical small island. The only aspect i would recoomend... More

We spent 3 nights at the Shari-La Resort. The accommodations ruined my Perhentian Island experience. Arriving onto the island, you are greeted with absolutely stunning views of crystal clear waters. The resort is great in concept- each room is an individual chalet with its own mini front porch, rocking chair, and clothing line for your swim wear to dry out.... More

We stayed at the Sharila Resort for two nights in August 2014. When arriving at the resort we were pleased by the beautiful white beaches and crystal clear water. Each room is a wooden chalet which look great from the outside, however inside they are very dark with little natural light (frosted windows?!) harsh panelled wooden walls with an excessive... More

Although it is not the best hotel I have ever been, the place was cozy, quiet and beautiful. Considering the type of hotels on the island, I think, by far, it's the best option for budget/value. Pros: The service was very friendly, the rooms were dark, but cozy and had new flat TV with satellite channels, the environment of the... More
