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.

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...

Fantastic place. Food and staff are excellent, music and atmosphere great and we were made to feel really welcome... that's made a pleasant change after staying at the hotel at the bottom of their hill. Wish I found it sooner! 11 out of 10 for me 😀😎

I loved my stay here. I booked the the night on the Full Moon Party and enjoyed a lot. The crowd is really good and the owners are right there if you need company. They have a nice swimming pool and a great beach at the back of the property. Highly recommended to backpackers.

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
