Had a fantastic week here. The staff are excellent, working hard to make sure you have the best holiday. The Bungalows and resort are clean and the pool is brilliant for the kids to keep them cool. The beach is a 5 minute walk with lots of nice bars and restaurants. The food in the restaurant here was some of...

Where to start this review ? Maybe "fantastic" is covering all we want to say about Papillon. The bungalows are nice and clean, situated at only a 5 minutes walk from Long Beach. Staff is amazing. Extremely friendly and always willing to help. If you decide to stay at this place do enjoy the food they serve. The dishes we...

I come here quite often to eat, the food is really good and reasonably priced. Both the thai food and western dishes are well worth it to try. The staff is always happy and helpful and the ambiance is nice and chilled out. I recommend this place :)

The bungalows are so pretty and comfortable. They have everything you need. The location is good too as it's near the beach and not far to shops and restaurants. The owner Tony is very nice. We needed his help a fair bit and he was brilliant.

We stayed here for 5 nights. Our bungalow was one of the bigger ones with air con which was a little noisy but was well needed. Nice hammock on the front veranda with two chairs. The pool is not massive but does the trick when needing to cool off & the sun beds are comfortable. Five minutes walk to the...

Very enjoyable visit here for 3 nights. Older couple, we found the whole atmosphere beautiful, relaxing, and romantic. You're just 100 meters from the main road, with markets, restaurants, transportation, but it cunningly feels very quiet and private nevertheless. Very well designed, laid out, tranquil. A 5 minute pleasant walk to one of the best beaches I've been to in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Papillon Bungalows is in a quiet, peaceful garden setting with palm and banana trees, and only 180m from Long beach. The 10 airconbungalows are well spaced apart around the lush tropical garden, giving a great sense of privacy. The bungalows are only a 1 minute walk from the swimming pool, and the cozy Papillon Restaurant is also inside the resort, with normal table seating, or comfortable Thai style cushions to sit on. Also on the menu are Thai and western dishes, fresh coffee and many other beverages. Smiling Thai staff will take care of your every need. We are confident it's important to keep the Thai feeling inside our resort. Welcome //Papillon Team ... more   less
