Shari-La Island Resort is a tropical island idyll on Pulau Perhentian Kecil, one of the Perhentian Islands located 21KM off the North East coast of Peninsula Malaysia. The resort is situated on one of the famous beaches on the islands. An above-average resort judging from the price. Location is very strategic, near the beautiful beach of Teluk Aur, which to our guest is the best beach on the island. The chalets are cleverly built between natural vegetation and blends well with the surroundings. There is a good patch of coral garden right in front of the resort.
Development here is still generally low-key with most accommodation consisting of low-rise chalets and bungalows. The island therefore retains much of their original forest cover and within the resort itself it is possible to see monitor lizards, spectacled languor monkeys and flying squirrels.
The surrounding crystal clear waters of the South China Sea are home to an abundance of coral and marine life including green and hawks-bill turtles, moray ells, beaches combined with a very relaxed atmosphere make this a mecca for scuba divers, snorkellers and those just wanting somewhere “to get away from it all”.
The restaurants cater for ala-carte meals as well as packaged meals for groups. The month of April to August is super high season and booking has to be made well in advance.
