Great beach and set up but terrible staff, atmosphere, service and stinky smell. For the rate per night and given the amazing beach you find yourself in, you would expect this resort to make an effort for providing you with great service and to instruct the staff to be friendly and helpful. Well they aren't. They kind of give you... More

The terms oasis, hidden gem and hideaway are often overused. However, Green Papaya might just fit the billing. Set on Salad Beach on the NW of the island. Undoubtedly one of the best options along this calm, quiet beach. Plenty of other inexpensive dining options along the beach but food very good here - especially The Massaman and Tom Ka... More

We just stayed 5 nights in this lovely oasis. Very nice and modern Bungalows are build in a very nice green garden with a pool in the middle. The resort is directly at the beach and perfect for snorkeling (just swim 100m away from the beach and you have a nice reef). The service is fantastic, all requests have been... More

We stayed at Green Papaya at the beginning of our holiday and during New Years. It's a well kept and boutique style resort in a nature style setting. In our opinion it's one of the gems on Koh Phagnang as it has a relaxing and cozy feel on a otherwise party filled island. The staff does their utmost to make... More

We spent 2 great weeks at The Green Papaya Resort at the end of November with our dear friends from Denmark. In the past 20 years we have enjoyed numerous beach holidays around the world, in Hawaii, Mexico, The Carribean, The South Pacific and Greece. The Green Papaya is definitely ranked at the top of our list. In fact it... More

Green Papaya Resort is located right at the north end of the beautiful Haad Salad beach at the north east side of the island. It’s a quite small family run resort, a real gem worth seeking out. The promotional pictures of the rooms and premises are very accurate, but in some cases they don’t give justice to how nice this... More
