Normally i don't really do this kind of writing-recommandations-stuff, but for this place i'd love to make an exception. This place IS an exception. Never ever felt as welcome in a hotel as in Papillion. After a while on the road it felt as coming home. Miss it already. When in Ko Lanta, when in Thailand tout-court actually: the place...

We stayed here for a week whilst travelling round the southern islands and it was one of the most relaxing places we have stayed in. The bungalows are very clean and we appreciated the extra amenities like bottled water and toiletries. The grounds itself are beautiful and we especially appreciated the pool on extremely hot days. The food is so...

The room was quite good for the price, and the bar/restaurant space and the pool were quite nice as well. It was very quiet, but walking distance from the beach and a lot of stores, restaurants and bars. Rented a scooter directly from them. The clincher is the staff, though. Great people and very responsive. Hot water wasn't working -...

Hi and thanks for a great review! :-) It's nice to know that you've liked your stay and that the staff was much appreciated. Of course it's always a bit more quiet when it's low season and there is not as much to do as in high or peak season, but it seems like you've found some good places to...

We had 5 days in a Grand Bungalow (number 9). The room was lovely with complimentary water but no tea or coffee, despite there being a kettle. The AC was excellent and allowed us to turn our room into a virtual fridge. The beach is 5 minutes walk away, where there are a couple of bars, from where you can...

I stayed here with two of my friends in one of the family bungalows and we could not have asked for a better experience.

This hotel was exactly what we were looking for on Koh Lanta-- we traveled on the cusp of low season and got a great rate (under $30 a night), and while the bungalows are basic, they are clean, comfy, and perfectly located. We loved both the pool area and bar/restaurant-- there are several options for the included breakfast and all...

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
