It's hard to review the hotel without reviewing the destination itself. So the first remark goes for Pulau Perhentian Kecil, an exceptional paradisiac island, which goes in the list of the car-free paradises that still exist. Moving along to the Hotel: It is the first hotel when you get off the jetty in Coral Bay, with a beautifull setting that...

The resort is very well set up in a great location. Own beach is lovely, and right next to jetty for mainland. Has restaurants and little stores along bay too. Rooms were ok. Wish there was a few windows for natural light. Can see it is best in area though with air con and hot water. Nice and clean with...

Yes all other good review says the right recommendation for this place. Considering the poor quality accommodation elsewhere , and not value for money ( other places charge RM 150 and not upto the standard) . I find Shari La is the best overall in Perhenthian Kecil I researched some other accommodation elsewhere in the island, and I find it...

During my travels of 2 months I stayed here with some people I met along the way. We stayed in a dorm, which was nice and clean and has good closets to put your stuff away safely. Our roommates here were very nice and we had nice dinners with these other roommates. Good atmosphere. The shared bathrooms for the dorms...

My family and I visited Perhentian last week and stayed at Shari-La. The experience was better than I expected because the island is really an eco island with limited facilities but Shari-La was wonderful. The rooms were very well setup and suitable for relaxation. There are some lovely beach facing rooms too. We stayed in a standard room and a...

I booked this place hesitantly because some of the reviews were not great. We actually had a really good stay for around $50 (AUD) or so per night. Our cottage was further down the path but not too far from Coral beach. The room had AC, fan and ensuite. The hot water didn't work initially but when we complained it...

I had a standard room at Shari-la for four nights and very much liked it. It seemed like Shari-la was definitely one of the best options on the island so I was happy about my choice. The room was somewhat basic but really all you need in a place like Perhentian. The breakfast buffet was great, staff at the frontdesk...

Shari-la Island Resort is definitely one of the best on the Perhentian Kecil island. It's different from other chalets and more expensive. The four of us took the quad room (suite) with 2 queen sized beds. The whole resort is very big and there was still on-going construction when we were there. It has a beautiful jetty leading straight to...

Hotel was basic but very nice compared to others on the island! Breakfast was the best on the island and dinner was great too! BBQ's were gorgeous as well, amazing fresh fish; would definitely recommend this place! Oh and keep walking round past the private beach for deserted ones with less coral where you'll be on your own!
