My favorite place in all of Thailand!”

Awesome staff, great room and grounds, cheap and delicious food

I initially booked a three-day stay at Shiralea and within a few minutes of arriving, I knew I'd be staying much longer. The staff is super awesome, very friendly, down-to-earth, and legitimately interested in their guests. You can go to them with any question/concern and they'll help you out. The bar/restaurant is fantastic; it almost feels like a bamboo treehouse for adults. The food (especially the Thai food) is excellent and cheap; don't miss the pad se-ew and the tom sum (which comes with lots of grape tomatoes). The bungalows are big, clean, comfortable, well-sealed, have great bathrooms and hammocks, and are just what you need after a long day of sports/beach/partying/whatever. The swimming pool and massage hut (onsite) are also both great; treat yourself to a coconut oil massage, you won't regret it! There are a few drawbacks, but none of them are major. There are occasional contiki parties in the bar/restaurant (which go a bit late and make some noise); use earplugs when you sleep or just go join them! The WiFi doesn't always reach the bungalows, so just take your tablet/phone with you when you go to the restaurant for a meal or a drink. Shiralea is a bit far from Thongsala and very far from Haad Rin, but these can be good things. Haad Yao is a great beach with lots of resorts for eating and/or drinking. The location lets you explore the western and northern coasts of the island. Rent a motorbike from the house up the street and go to Koh Ma, Chaloklum, and Bottle Beach. Overall, the bungalows here cost a bit more than others on the island, but you absolutely get what you pay for. I loved my time here and would highly recommend it to any backpacker, solo or part of a group.

Feel at home at shiralea”

epic staff - great food - meeting people- close to beach ( not possible describing in 3 words)

We planned to stay 4 days and ended up being there nearly 2 weeks! The fan bungalow gives you all you need. Comfy beds, spacious bathroom with good hot showers, in room safe, enough space on hangers or shelves to put your stuff away. Little balcony where you can relax in your own hammock. All bungalows are located in a very green garden! The best thing about Shiralea is the welcoming atmospere! We felt so at ease here! Staff are very friendly and helpfull. They provide the guests with games and activities in the evening (RING THE BELL) and they try to make sure you are having a good time! The resort had a nice pool so if the 3 minute walk to the beach is too much on your lazy day, you can relax here! The resort also have a wide range of activities/tours that you can book through them. They also work together with 'Sailrock' Divers so you can arrange your diving experience! The restaurants food is fantactic! Best kitchen we've tried in Thailand so far! Its not super cheap (compared to street stalls) but knowing how good everything was we didn't mind spending a little more! The resort also has an outside area where you can watch movies and next to it a pool table free of charge! They also organise transport to the moonparties and have free blacklight paint available for all guests. The bar area is a lot of fun and a good place to meet new people! Playing music every night and with some beerpong and shots you will enjoy yourself for sure! Now and then a tour group might stay for a couple of days. Don't be shy and join in on the fun (definately stick around if you like free shots :) ) The place will put a smile on everyones face even the kitchen ladies when they bring out the garbage each day! If you are looking for some peace and quiet this might not be the best place during high season! When the bar is busy it'll go on until 2 AM so sleeping could be difficult before that (depending how close your bungalow is located). Overall a little piece of Thailand you can cal

Pleasant stay”

Great atmosphere, great bunch of people, both the staff and the guests.

Shiralea is truly one of those backpackers resorts where you can meet lively people. They have a pool and a bar where guests can choose to come together and have a good time. The place is just a very short walk to Haad Yao (Long Beach) which is especially beautiful at sunset and has several bars to chill at night. Its downside probably is that the location is at a quieter part of the island, so if you want to party hard and get drunk at the famous Full Moon Party, keep in mind that it's about 40 minutes away by scooter. But all in all, Shiralea is a great place to stay and I would recommend this place to all my friends.

Great budget stay, fun, relaxing, friendly, FOOD!”

Food, Staff, Hammocks

We had a wonderful time with the boys at Shiralea. The food was the best so far in Thailand (and we live in Bangkok). The staff was great, especially Baz! Decent location, a ways from town, but away from crowds, and 3 minute walk to the best beach on the island. Room was OK, bed was hard as a rock, but we are getting old and soft. The bathroom could use a good scrubbing. Our bungalow had air-con that worked great, and that was it...to be expected for a backpacker joint. The resort is situated on a hill, so some of the rooms are a climb, but that is good to burn off the wonderful food the Burmese ladies cook up for you. Pool is nice, big enough for fun, and the deepest deep end I have seen in years. For under 8k THB for three of us including room, meals and bar tab, for 4 nights...it was the best vacation deal I have ever run across. I cannot comment on how the place is during Full Moon, Half Moon, Black Moon or Contiki; but in between, it is a nice quiet place, even for a family with a five year old. Also, as we were leaving, work crews were starting on some remodeling and repairs, including new thatch roofs, renovating the bar/reception area, and I was told many changes are in store. I hope to visit again to see the improvements.

Shiralea is definitely the best place i've ever stayed in! I totally recommend it to solo travellers, friends, families; everyone is welcomed there! The atmosphere is absolutely amazing. It is surrounded by nature and it's locations is perfect, the facilities are amazing and the staff there could not be more beautiful! The rooms and toilettes are cleaned every day and everything is just amazing! The kitchen/living room/soul it's a super nice place to chill, to talk and to spend some time.

Excellent staff, awesome pool”

Pool, beach, hammock

The rooms were clean and the bathroom was huge! They also had a safety box in the room and enough space on hangers or shelves to put your stuff away. Receptionist was always there for us with a big smile and willing to help. TV in their guest room is very annoying thing to have when your room is close to it: some guests watching movies at night and it feels like you are trying to sleep in the movie theater. Little balcony where you can relax in your own hammock. All bungalows are located in a very green garden! The best thing about Shiralea is the welcoming atmospere! I felt so at ease here! Staff are very friendly and helpful. The resort had a nice pool so if the 3 minute walk to the beach is too much on your lazy day, you can relax here!

enjoyable”

restaurant, close to the beach, well-kept grounds

i stayed in the bamboo fan and my parents stayed in the AC room. my fan room was a little buggy with some jungle ants--but it's the jungle, what can you expect?? but the room&bathroom itself was really clean and i enjoyed my stay there. it isn't RIGHT by the beach (it's a 2 minute walk away)--but this wasn't a big deal, especially b/c the resort grounds were really well kept, and the common area were pleasant to hang out in. i actually preferred that it wasn't right on the beach b/c i could choose beach or jungle. my parents' AC room was really pleasant--a good value for the price. finally, i really appreciated Richie (and Emma's and the general staffs') friendly demeanor. tthough my parents are older, they enjoyed themselves at this "backpacker". if there are any pitfalls, the only i could think of is that it's a bit far away from the city--making transportation a *necessity*--you've got to get a bike or a car to get around--but that'd be true to any part of the island.

shiralea was by far my favourite stay in thailand. the bungalows are clean and quite big, and the pool is really really nice. they also have a restaurant with western/thai food, and you can all put it on a tab. plus they have all day breakfast! the people that work there are more than amazing. the beach is a two minute walk, but to go to the city, you need a motorbike. coming back to shiralea for sure!!!

Good value, lively location”

Close to nice beach, good pool, great staff

Had Yao is a pretty nice beach, the only fault of which is it gets a bit shallow at lowest tide. Shiralea is only 3 minutes stroll from the sand. Lots of good restaurants and bars along this beach, and there is a good little shopping area along the way to the sand. My budget room was spacious with plenty of room for 2 and gear, clean, had a comfy bed and extras not normal in this price range like hot water in the big bathroom and a safe. The spacious veranda had a hammock. The dining area had some character, good food at normal budget bungalow prices and a very attentive and friendly staff of Brit, Aussie and Kiwi expats. Good free wifi there. A pool is not a normal inclusion of places with budget bungalows, although those overlooking the pool were a step or more up from budget level - looked very nice. The pool itself is small but very attractive. One caveat - Shiralea is a regular stop-off for groups of Kontiki under 25 travel groups who tend to stay 2 nights and then move on. When in attendance they party which leads to some noise into the early morning. I'm sensitive to such things but the volume was not too bad and I managed to get plenty of sleep both nights, unlike an earlier stay at Marina on Ko Lanta where the all island party next door had me sleepless until 5am.

Fun, friendly place”

Lovely swimming pool, chilled out vibe, friendly staff, good value, a social hang out area

We had a wonderful time staying at the Shiralea. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is a short walk to the beach and has a lovely pool - a bonus for the amount you are paying. Definitely good value for money. The rating area is a great place to hang put in any time of day and they have created a friendly vibe where fellow transports mix. I would definitely recommend this place to others who want a chilled out, relaxing place to stay.

Great rooms, super chill, and lots of fun”

good food, friendly staff, nice rooms, pool, billiards

we stayed at shiralea for almost a week while doing our padi certification. the staff are great; super helpful! the bungalows are nice; room is small, but the bathroom is huge (for sea)! we stayed in two different rooms. first 3 in a 1-queen bed and then in a 2 twin bed room (we decided to stay a two more nights). it's backpacker, couple, and family friendly. we'd definitely come back.

Small and basic room in nice resort ”

We stayed in the double fan room. We originally booked for 2 nights but ended up staying for 7. However I wouldn't say that we extended our stay because we loved the room! The room was clean but very very small. Not much room around the bed plus a badly laid out shelf meant there was no room to unpack bags at all really. The room had a fan (as expected) but was still very hot. Obviously this to be expected, not moaning just noting that it gets stuffy and hot. No bugs in the room, however our bungalow (11) was next to a large bush that was home to lots of noisy bugs and on one night a very loud bull frog that kept us up most of the night. Unless you are a deep sleeper bring ear buds and you should be fine. The resort has a great pool with sun beds around it, as well as a good bar/restaurant with a chill out area. Staff were mostly friendly. Would recommend staying for a few nights as the island is great, but room is basic as advertised

Hello Amy! Thanks for the amazing review. Not much we can do about the local jungle wildlife/weather but I am glad to hear you really enjoyed everything else Shiralea has to offer! Maybe next time you stay you can book one of our deluxe private air-conditioned bungalows and we will get that review from a 9.2 up to a 10!! Kind Regards, ~Shiralea Management

Close to beach, great pool, nice staff

We had a great stay at Shiralea! The staff is nice, the restaurant has good thai options for those saving money. The room is great, cofortable beds and a hammock on the balcony. And very close to the beach! They also arrange anything you need, like taxis, entertainment, transport between the islands. Really good experience!

I stayed in a dorm at shiralea and the dorms are really nice. They are clean, you have AC and a curtain for some privacy. They also have huge lockers and each bed has a plug. I just wouldn’t recommend staying there if you don’t drive a scooter because it’s a bit far off from everything.

Hello Denise! Thank you for taking the time to write us such an outstanding review. Great to see you found our dorms clean and comfortable! We are only a 10 minute drive from the pier and main town of Thongsala so not really too far, however you are correct that scooters are the best way to get around the island.

Very clean, good food/bar and a refreshing pool”

What more could you want from a hostel. The decor in the rooms is basic but the beds include privacy curtains and the set up for you belongings was great. Place to hang clothes and a huge locker for you backpack and valuables. The bathrooms were cleaned very thoroughly every day and had great showers with lots of space. The bar area had a very chilled vibe and offered free tea and coffee all day. The food was really tasty and at a fair price. Prices on the island are slightly higher than elsewhere in Thailand. Staff were very friendly and straightforward. Would highly recommend

Decent Backpacker Hostel”

Really friendly staff, when we got there they were doing decorative work on the rooms and our (fan) room smelled of paint still so they upgraded us free of charge to an A/C room. All staff very helpful including on our last night when the electrics in room went off and A/C wouldn't restart, the owner came out and offered to change our room, we declined as we only had one night so he brought us a big fan. Fast internet. Clean. Reasonable bar prices for a backpackers.

A resort ideal for backpackers”

Ok price for a basic bungalow, very good restaurant including breakfast and dinner!

As previous reviews already described, this place is meant for backpackers (or young package tourists) who wants to party all night and every night.. If you're into a drink or 2/3 then this place might be far too loud, if you like free shots and drinking games (without staying in Haad rin) this is your place to stay! On a quiet night I appreciated the cleanliness of the little bungalow but I didn't dare to swim as I overheard the stories of the party people..
