Probably the biggest resort on the island, offering 24-hour electricity and wifi (albeit shite wifi). Their dorms are okay, but the staff are not the best. After checking in, you’ll generally find an unmade bed, and will have to ask three times and wait several hours before it’s actually made. The toilets there are abysmal; none of them having locks, and those with locks boasted a string tied to a rusty nail in the door. The resort can afford to do this, as the only people using the bathrooms are those in the dorms; the rest of the rooms all have private bathrooms. On the plus side, the rest of the resort is great; restaurant and grounds are really good and it’s got a bitchin few private beaches that make for really good sunset spots. I reckon the dorm guests just get the shit bits of everything! 2.5/5!

Too bad they don't maintain the dorms properly. It sounds like it was nice once you got out of the rooms. thanks for this review... sylvia

Best dorm on the island !! May 21, 2011
Shari-la is located on Perhentian Kecil (small island). It's a really nice hotel - the rooms are a bit expensive but they have also two AC dorms. Def. the best dorm I had on my trip in SE Asia! 20RM/night

Good food (bbq) every evening, free juice all day, free wifi.

friendly staff. quiet at night, 5-10 minutes walk to Long Beach.

highly recommended!!

Great dorm Dec 18, 2011
Shari-La dorms are good value for money. Even though there's more than 10 beds in one room, it doesn't matter at all. It's located in Coral Bay, which is the smaller beach on the island. It's quiet and relaxing and the best diving school on the island Steffen Sea Sport is like one minute walk away if you're into diving. Also the best restaurant on the island Maya is few minutes away. I stayed in both beaches and I can highly recommend Coral Bay. If you want to party, you can still easily walk to Long Beach since there's no bars on Coral Bay.

The only bad thing I have to say about Shari-La is that the bathrooms could have been a lot better. I'm not that picky so I didn't mind that much, but I can imagine people are not enjoying it. If they can fix those or at least put sinks(!) in some bathrooms, so that you don't need to brush your teeth in the shower, it's close to perfection in that price range.
