If you are looking for a place to stay how thailand used to be, friendly staff, amazing food, accommodation to die for, and a pool but still a 2 min walk to the beach! then look no further than SHIRALEA!

Thoroughly enjoyed my time at Shiralea. Joy, Josh, Brett and the rest of the staff are passionate about their work and committed to helping you have a wonderful stay. I would definitely return, as the area and accomodation are authentic/not touristy, while the accommdation is to a high standard at reasonable prices. They fulfil their original vision to create a mini paradise amongst coconut trees, with massages available, three standards of hut and a great pool! Its also a 2 minute walk from the perfect Haad Yao beach and doesnt have a huge amount of huts, so makes the guests feel exclusive, ensuring a community feel. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

I was there for relaxation, and Haad Yao is the perfect area for this. I went during the low season and in between moon parties, so it was quiet and chilled. Getting to know staff and holiday-makers was easy due to the relaxed atomsphere the staff create. This was especially important for me as a solo traveller. From what I can tell, if you are into partying then this is the place to come: authentic rural thai accomodation combined with some crazy bar parties! Regular contiki tours ensure lots of fun partygoers.

Lastly, the food is excellent. I went to a few restaurants on the beach and it was never as nice. Home-made and virtually available at any time of the day (I was slightly addicted to their french toast), do not bother eating anywhere else.

ATM, moped hire (at own risk!) and a 7/11 are all nearby. Get a massage at Ratatoille, either at Shiralea or on the beach. AMAZING.

First time in Thailand, definitely not the last. I would totally recommend staying here. The resort as a whole was utterly fantastic from the friendly staff to the excellent food. Calm and relaxed atmosphere. Two minute walk from the beach. Doesn't get any better.

I had the pleasure of visiting shiralea on my contiki tour. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Best parts for me was the great food, breakfast being freshly prepared and served till late and of course the bell in the bar. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun party vibe whilst in koh phangan.

We just came back from a 4 month trip and we stayed at Shiralea twice. Both times we extended our stay as well! We love everything about Shiralea, it's so relaxing, yet if you want to you can party it up. The staff is beyond great, so friendly and helpful. This place really is your home away from home, definitely the best place we stayed at during our trip. The only bad thing is that time passes so quickly there, and you are not going to want to leave!
