Our five night stay here was exceptional. The location is great, just north of central on the west coast, making it cheap and simple to access all areas easily. The hotel surrounds may look humble from the street, but once you enter the barn like reception and dining area you are overwhelmed by a sense of peace and tranquility. The...

We spent 14 nights at Papillon Bungalows and we enjoyed every minute. The bungalows are set in a lovely tropical garden and are very clean and spacious, each having a cozy little terrace with a hammock. They were very well equipped with dvd player, tv, a small refrigerator, as well as an electric kettle which came in very handy when...

We stayed at Papillon two years ago and absolutely loved it, so decided to return for an eleven night stay after spending two weeks in Phuket. We had read from Tripadvisor reviews that the place was under new management, but we needn't have worried, the place is just as good as before, if not better. The new management team, led...

We stayed two nights here at the start of a longer trip. The bungalows are simple but clean and perfect for our needs. It's unlikely you'll spend much time in your room as the beautiful beach is a 3 minute walk away. The staff are so friendly and helpful, we were made to feel so welcome straight away. Definitely recommend!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We booked the accommodation based on rave reviews and recommendations on trip advisor. Whilst the bungalows are well air conditioned and clean the place didn't quite live up to our expectations. Pool is tiny but clean. Decor is sparse and basic. Linen was clean but one of the towels had a...

We originally stayed at another resort on Lanta and wanted to check out another beach. Our plan was to stay a night or two and then move on to another island. However, we liked it so much at Papillon that we kept prolonging the stay there - and ended up staying 13(!) nights there! The staff was super nice -...

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
