Shari-la Island Resort
Lonely Planet review
Situated on the northern end of Coral Bay, and sprawling back into the jungle trail, this place offers a surprisingly posh package for the money. A-frame chalets are well furnished with wooden decks and comfy beds, the suites have satellite-equipped TVs and full bathrooms, and the budget rooms are some of the best on the island, with three beds each and air conditioning (bathrooms are shared). Most chalets are equipped with solar hot-water showers, and Shari-la has its own secluded beach. One of the few places in Coral Bay that has 24-hour electricity. The onsite restaurant (Malay, Western and Thai dishes) is also quite good.
Our independent authors have visited Shari-la Island Resort and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Pulau Perhentian.
