Shiralea Backpackers Resort Koh Phangan Reviews

Dissapointing May 17, 2014
I stayed here in September 2013 and was disappointed in the overall standard of this resort.It has a good reputation but that is because it hosts the Contiki tours to Koh Phangnan.

The contiki tours stay there almost all of the time and that is the reason why Shiralea is always booked!!!I believed it was going to be a place where you could meet other independent travellers but absolutely everybody staying there was on the Contiki tour.I felt that the staff were only really interested in looking after their Contiki guests and ignored the other independent travellers to a degree.

Overall I was disappointed and have stayed at a number of other great places on Koh Phangnan which are of much better standard and cost.And do not be fooled as it's location is not on the beach which you would expect.Of all my travels in SE Asia this was one of the most overerated and definetly didn't live up to the hype.

Shiralea Backpackers Resort Overview

Friendly Food .. Tasty People ... that's Shiralea!The resort offers a variety of activities for guests looking for an adventurous holiday or alternatively a peaceful and tranquil location to sunbathe, swim and chill out. Do as much or as little as your like - YOUR way. For the independent traveller, flashpacker or holiday-maker looking for an authentic Thailand experience. Shiralea has been designed to replace the traditional style bungalows that have disappeared from Haad Yao over the last few years and been replaced by larger resorts and hotels. The rates are low priced and allow guests to stay on one of Koh Phangan's most beautiful beach locations at a very cost effective price. The resort is situated within leafy, tropical coconut palm gardens just two minutes from the beach with a large swimming pool, restaurant and bar. With the feel of a jungle resort, Shiralea is just moments away from the nightlife of Haad Yao and the plentiful daytime activities along the beach front
