Loved every moment of our stay here. The food is great and the whole experience was very affordable. On top of that the bar staff are super friendly and made us feel very welcome, Charlie the manager is a legend. Charlie really helped us out on booking the room over the full moon period - we would have been stuck...

We made some new friends, and the friends we came with became closer. I couldn't have asked for a better place. The atmosphere was great. The...

We had a great time staying at Shiralea! The room rates were extremely affordable, and we were relieved to find that the air conditioning was almost too good considering the humid hot weather! The staff were friendly and easy going, as were the managers. Service in the bar was quick and we were impressed by how little our stay actually...

While our room wasn't the best, the place is really good and the owner was so kind! I also really loved the restaurant and we spent a lot of time there. It's like a big, nicely decorated area where backpackers are just hanging around and it feels like you're in the middle of the jungle. We really didn't like the...

We stayed here only two nights as we were leaving the island, the first night in a fan room which smelt slightly of mould and the second in an air conditioned room which was much nicer but also twice the price. The resort is definitely worth the money though. The layout is really nice - the pool area is so...

We stayed for five nights and paid about $14 US dollars a night which was cheaper than almost anything else on the island. It's a bit loud at night while tourists and staff are hanging at the bar but it didn't really bother us. Very friendly staff, great pool and easy beach access (though it's not on the beach as...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set on the stunning tropical island of Koh Pha Ngan - home to Thailand's famous 'full moon party' - Shiralea is a boutique resort designed to be a backpackers paradise. Welcome to a 'flashpacking' experience. Shiralea was built by a group of travellers who wanted a haven to return to. With a focus on 'good times' we created a friendly and vibrant atmosphere which puts our guests immediately at ease. Shiralea is a place where strangers become friends, we designed the resort with a social aspect which sets us apart, our guests love how they can do exactly what they want at Shiralea- whether that be a crazy night at the bar or a quiet one watching movies. Shiralea is the ideal spot to set up for a few days you'll never forget. Located 1 minutes walk from the beautiful Haad Yao beach. Our resort has all the creature comforts you could want and we cater for all budgets - hot showers, comfortable beds, wall-mounted fan or air conditioned bungalows, an ensuite in each bungalow and your own balcony with a hammock. In addition to our 30 bungalows, we have great facilities to keep you entertained, including a restaurant that offers delicious and well priced Thai and Western meals, a great bar, free wifi, large swimming pool with Jacuzzi and poolside bar, movie lounge, a games room with pool table and a massage hut. Shiralea has everything you need to enjoy your 'flashpacking' experience, but it's the memories that our guests treasure. Lose yourself in the fine art of doing nothing or celebrate balmy nights dancing into the wee hours with new friends. Our staff always welcome our guests with open arms, so all you need to do is bring a bag of basics and a smile. We invite you to join the fun. Book your stay with Shiralea. ... more   less
