Stopped here for 3 nights as we had a trip planned in ko lanta however due to weather we had to cancel so we spent the majority of the 3 days chilling by the pool and dining in the restaurant.

Stayed at Papillon for 4 nights in October and had a very pleasant stay there, the hosts Caroline and Jan are most welcoming and attentative as any family owned business should be. Once I got over the shock that I'm not staying in a higher priced hotel but essentially a excellently priced bungalow, it all made sense. The bungalow I... More

Spent 3 nights at the Papillion Bungalows. Arrived to a very welcoming Thai host (name forgotten) and Caroline who owns the business. Check in was swift and and a cold glass of complimentary juice on arrival was a welcomed gift. We were taken straight to our Bungalow of which there are approximately 11 in total.

We loved our stay at Papillon Bungalows. This place is fantastic value for money, is quiet, relaxing and had a lovely swimming pool which was great for our 2 young boys. The owner and staff were really friendly and the bungalow was a good size for 4 people. The breakfasts were superb, made to order, not buffet. Unfortunately being low... More

Lovely little bungalow resort with swimming pool. Very friendly owners and staff who helped me out finding my way around the island. Bungalows are clean and, in my case, had AC which I could easily adjust. Great breakfast included and also the food served in the restaurant was good. Only minor thing was that there was no Wi-Fi available in... More

Papillon bungalows is a very relaxed place and very safe with children. The food at the restaurant is good (I loved the chocolate cake and the big breakfast !) and the service is fast.
