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

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

Upon arrival, I was shocked to hear the construction noises all over the hotel. At the reception they don't even explain and tried to take me to a room right behind the construction site. Since I specifically requested a "quite room," I had to ask "This isn't my room, is it?" and they say "It is." I wish I could... More
