“Fun, relaxed, comfortable”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Had such a great time staying at Shiraea, sitting by the pool in the sun and going to the beach were highlights. The food is amazing and the staff are wonderfully friendly. I would love to go back here, the island is beautiful and I wasnt happy about leaving. Would have liked to spend more time there exploring. I was on a contiki tour which made the whole experience very fun no matter where we were. The beach near by is very shallow but still very beautiful, and i preferred to swim in the swimming pool anyway.

Room Tip: All the bungalows are the same i believe

The best place we stayed whilst island hopping. When ever you needed a massage someone was there. 24/7 pool, is hard to fault the place. Thanks for a brilliant stay, if I ever go back I will be sure to stay there again

This is my favourite place of all the places I have ever stayed. Shiralea is incredible. It's your home away from home and more; with meals that leave you satisfied, staff that know how to have an awesome time, accommodation that keeps you happy, a pool that is open 24/7, a pool table and TV area where you can just kick back with friends new and old, and by night, the restaurant/bar turns into party central with great tunes and good vibes. This is your one stop shop when visiting Koh Phangan. Just stay here, you will be glad you did.

Awesome extras and great food service. The rooms were very clean and surrounding gardens were well maintained and presentable. The pool area was great and the beach was close in proximity. Best massages in Thailand!!!

Excellent staff who look after you, great pool to swim around and cool off in, close to the beach and just overall an excellent place to chill out with a beer and listen to some tunes whether it be at the bar or in the pool. Must try an attitude adjuster before you leave and ring the bell!!!

Loved it. Private bungalows in a pretty garden setting, really close to the beach but also has a very enticing pool. The staff were so friendly and helpful and included everyone, especially for the moon parties, and the bar could be really good fun with theme parties when they have tour groups thru and for moon parties, so an easy place to meet other travellers. On site masseuse was a dream, also good area for watching movies. Easy to get around the island and explore from here, and nice to not be in the chaos of a city! An awesome place to chill out, hoping to go back at the end of my trip.
