4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Stayed 10 days at Green Papaya. We had 2 bungalows (1 for the children). The resort is small and cosy. The pool is beatiful and it's not crowded at all, at least not when we were there. It's also located at the best part of the Salad beach. The staff is friendly and helpfull. Would definitly recommend it!

Loved simply every moment of being here, and at low season prices, seemed like unbeatable value. The staff was wonderful, warm, and friendly, full of useful information about getting around the island. We stayed in the Deluxe Cottage, which turned out to be a gorgeous teak bungalow right next to the pristine pool and steps from the beach. The food... More

We have stayed here with our young children and our parents. Everyone was delighted with the accommodation and facilities. We stayed in the family pool villa, which was totally luxury. This is by far the nicest resort on the beach. The rooms were clean and beautifully furnished. The pool was great for the kids and the infinity pool looks straight... More

This is our 4th time here in 4 years. I never thought I'd be the type of person who'd visit the same place over and over but I was wrong. My family and I (kids 10 & 7) stumbled upon the Green Papaya quite by accident 4 years ago and have been back with extended family, friends and again on... More

After we made a great experience at the Green Papaya Resort last year, our decision to come back here was made very easily. We booked a Deluxe Cottage right at the pool and very close to the beach! The hotel offered a pick-up from the ferry, which was very convenient and the price was more or less equal to a... More

This is my favourite beach in Thailand - you can't even begin to imagine how amazing the sea is here. I've also stayed at Salad Buri and Salad Beach Resort and this is definitely my fave of the three. Great rooms, pool and location. The spicey basil chicken in the restaurant is super delicious too. Just something to bear in... More

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
