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.

Hello and thank you very much for a great review, and that you have taken your time to write it! :-) I'm blushing over here, and you have certainly made my day with this review. But I do want to mention that without our great staff, Papillon wouldn't be what it is. We are really pleased that you have liked...

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...

On one of the nicest and longest beaches on Koh Lanta, the Papillon Bungalows offer a nice little retreat in the nature. Do not let the 200 a 300 hundred meter walk to the beach discourage you. When at knight (2 times a week) the bar on the beach has its parties, you will be happy to be 200 meters...

We stayed at Papillion for a week in a family bungalow with a queen size bed and a bunk bed for our kids. The beds were firm but comfortable, the bathroom huge, and the rooms very clean.

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
