    Lonely Planet review

    Situated at Coral Bay’s northern end, and sprawling into the jungle, this place offers a surprisingly posh package. A-frame bungalows are furnished with spacious wooden decks, and suites have satellite-equipped TVs and full bathrooms. Most bungalows are equipped with solar hot-water showers, and Shari-la has its own secluded beach. Also one of the few Coral Bay places with 24-hour electricity.

    The on-site restaurant serving Malay, Thai and international dishes is also good.

    Our independent authors have visited Shari-la Island Resort and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Pulau Perhentian.
