We stated on long beach and would have preferred to spend the 10 days there but the rooms in most of the long beach places are expensive for what you get. We stayed in D rock garden first , best location on the beach but they don't seem to care about looking after it , the rooms are dirty and... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice in June and July 2013 Pros: Located at the quiter side of the island. Rock hopping to secluded beaches next to the hotel. Have their own private beach. Hot shower. There's a place to dry clothes. Air condition working fine. Cons: The worst snorkeling trip I ever been - the boat man was busy... More

We spent 4 days 3 nights here and spent about RM500 per person inclusive of breakfast, 3 snorkelling trips, snorkelling gear and a tour guide and enjoyed every moment! Especially the breakfast buffet, it never disappointed us. There were four of us so we got a quite a big chalet, the only thing wrong with the room was that the... More

After spending 2 nights in an awful room on long beach we moved to shari la! It was heaven! We had a lovely double room which was really clean and has a lovely porch on the front to sit on! The room was well sealed so it kept all the bugs out( no need for mosquito net). The bathroom had... More

Shari La was clean with good air con and hot showers. Definately enjoyed our stay and had no problem with hygiene or... More

We are two girls from Europe backpacking south east Asia and stayed at their dorm for one night after our desired location had no room available. From the good reviews here on tripadvisor we thought it should be ok - we have rarely been so wrong. When we checked in at 3pm we still had to wait until 10pm for... More

I always find the reviews on TripAdvsoir very helpful, so this time I would like to share my experience as my review may help other travellers making their decision. I travelled to Perhentian Kecil with three friends back in July and picked a deluxe chalet at the Shari-La based on mainly positive reviews on TripAdvisor at the time. Unfortunately, I... More

I never like to leave bad comments, truly this time I have no choice! The resort and the chalet look very pretty on the outside, once inside the suite the nightmare begins! Starting with the smelly bedlinen, furniture had upholstery full of dust from months I wouldn't touch them even with clothes on. Toilet felt like a public toilet. Forget... More

We stayed there 2 nights. It was quite dufficult to find something without earlier booking. Only some ugly and cheap rooms in different chalets nearby. Szari-la wasn't cheap - 250 per one night but of a good value. Food was not included.

Suitable for honeymooners..but, the beach here are not suitable for swimming because there's a lot died coral and can cause pain on your feet just by stepping on it... to swim in the biggest swimming pool in...
