My second time at Papillon spent 4 nights here in July. The appeal of Papillon is its location. Its away from the main Chaweng drag in a very quiet semi concealed spot at the far(airport) end of the beach. The views and atmosphere are wonderful and spectacular. Its a small quiet place with bungalows set in tropical garden. Be careful... More

Went there with 2 friends and got a really nice duplex room. The staff were the most friendly we have met so far in our trip. The guy at reception spoke 3 languages (thai, english and french) really well which is a pleasure in this country and even let us use his personal phone to call an airline to book... More

Good resort - rooms were clean, nice little bungalow to ourselves, pool is lovely and great views (especially at high tide). Great location and close to restaurants along the beach. Breakfast was nice. A little expensive but you pay a premium for being beach front on Chaweng. Staff helpful but travel can be booked cheaper from outside travel agents. We... More

This is a nice budget-friendly resort located at North Chaweng beach. We didn't go in expecting it to be a luxurious resort with chocolates and a beautiful lobby (like its neighbor resorts) and it wasn't! It's a guesthouse, cheap for the Chaweng area and good value for getting your own cute bungalow to yourself. The people were nice and helpful,... More

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

We had a "large seafront" room and it was horrible as was the staff. Don't trust the photos or the reviews...maybe written by someone who really wasn't there. The first room we were given had a large gap around the front door, but was able to be locked. We noted the room was kind of crummy looking and smelt like... More

My boyfriend and I were at Papillon Resort for only one night. We wanted to find a hotel that was close to the airport but still comfy and quite. Papillon it was and I recommend this lovely place to everyone! The staff was incredibly friendly. We ordered room (bungalow) service and the food was fantastic. Whenever we'll visit Chaweng in...

This was a lovely resort to start our trip off at Koh Samui. The pool is a little small, but it seemed like we were the only guests for the time we stayed there, so it worked for us. The garden area and eating area is close to the sea so you are surrounded by beautiful views. The beach is... More

We have stayed at the Papillon resort many times since 2006 .We have had extended family gatherings as well as individual stays.We keep coming back almost every year for many reasons but mainly because of the brilliant staff.It is a very very safe environment for children because the apartments we stay in face directly onto the pool and the beach...
