We only stayed one night but were really impressed by the welcoming feeling the owner and staff were giving. We were greeted with a welcome drink which was nice in the heat. The area is very relaxed and laid back. One could tell that the guests liked the place. Our bungalow was quite far back which gave us privacy. The...

Hello and thanks for a good review! :-) It seems that you did enjoy your stay here and that makes us really pleased.

Stayed at Papillon bungalows for 3 nights with my girlfriend. I found the staff very friendly and helpful when I asked about tours and ferry transfers. Rented motorbikes from them at 200 baht per day and had a blast scooting around the island finding private beaches. Rooms were comfortable and I recommend getting the AC as it is a lifesaver...

We booked the place based on reviews and were not dissapointed . Since we became parents we have these minimum requirements: good location, clean rooms, good breakfast and there must be a swimmingpool. Papillon met all these , the rooms are simple but clean and comfortable, the pool is clean and as there are not many Bungalows, the pool area...

Booked this resort purely based on the reviews and the fact that management responds to peoples reviews. I paid for 13 days in advance on one of the larger bungalovs, which I thought it might be a bit of a gamble based on previous experiences in Thailand. We ended up having a wonderful time. I fully agree with other reviews,...

Stayed here in January 2016 and really liked it. Not much to add to previous reviews really, Swedish owned and managed, they remain visible and available so none of the normal English/Thai communication issues (although the Thai staff are excellent as well) Rooms are simple, private and spotlessly clean. Pool is 'natural style' with various depths so great for lounging...

Highly recommended, 5/5! Such a beautiful, quiet, relaxed and clean place. I stayed there only for 2 nights in Jan since they were fully booked - so remember to book early! Bungalows are really clean and nicely decorated. They are not too close to each other so this place doesn't feel too crowded. You will have your own space here....

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
