Me and my boyfriend have been travelling around Thailand and have stayed in 5* resorts in the past. In comparison, this resort isn't rated a 5, but is certainly not worth rated a 1 as.per last review. We were given the same large sea view bungalow as mentioned in the previous post. Correct, there was a small gap from the... More

If you are looking for a silent place not far away from nice beaches and the heart of Samui Chaweng, this is what you need. (Fisherman's village is just 10 minutes drive same as Chaweng) Very good staff, in room wi-fi, little kitchen to cook for kids, nice swimming-pool and perfect sea-view! The nearest beach is just 2 minutes walk,... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. We were collected at the airport and then given a nice big bungalow type apartment. Friendly staff, internet access (via a computer in the bar), and amazing views of the sea. It's located at the end of Chaweng so it is a lot quieter, but there is a frequent bus that... More

Nice hotel at the end of Chaweng beach. Nice and quiet. Location was a bit far from restaurants and shops but with the common small "buses" it worked fine. Fresh, clean and large rooms with everything you need. Good breakfast included. Good and helpful staff. Good food in the restaurant but very (!) expensive.

We found this hotel while doing some hotel research online. After reading the reviews, we decided to book papillon. When we got there, we were welcomed with drinks, the owner of the place was very nice and helpful. We got to have breakfast every morning facing the sea. Wifi was only accessible in the common area i.e. the restaurant/bar area... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in room 2, which faced the pool. The room was lovely, good enough for our needs. Despite the double windows facing the pool they were tinted, almost one-way, and people could not see in during the day. At night just draw the curtains. The pool area can get quite noisy, as...
