Tony - thank you to you, Ing and staff for a perfect, stressfree Christmas for us and Sharon. The rooms were small, perfectly formed with amazing air-con and wifi plus a few luxuries like fridge, tv etc. The location in the middle of Long Beach was perfect for us and the relaxed island lifestyle was the perfect remedy from a...

Tony and his team really go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. My wife and I spent 6 weeks in Asia and this stay was our highlight. The island itself is great but Papillon was perfect. We kinda wanted to be directly on the beach but once we stayed there, we wouldn't change a thing....

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here during our honeymoon, we actually ended up extending our booking from 2 nights to 4. Tony and his staff are very sweet and welcoming.

After being in South East Asia for just over 2 months and staying in mostly hotels, I have to say, when we arrived at Papillion it was very different to what we were used to but we fell in love with the place. We stayed here for 4 nights! The rooms are smaller to what we have stayed it but...

Stayed here for 3 nights and highly recommend it. The owners and the staff are very friendly and personable. The property is small but charming and the cooking is great for the price.

Tony and the rest of staff are super nice, friendly, and welcoming.

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
