Rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. Staff didn't have great English, and service was average. Pool was great and it's right on the beach. For us things were a little built up and not the prettiest beach

I stayed here this month for 2 nights. At first sight its a perfect paradise. The coffee shop / Restaurent in on the beach and gives a beautiful view to the endless ocean. I found everyone at the resort very helpful and joyous, and ofcourse they deserve to be happy to live/work in that place. The food especially the breakfast... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here month of January 2014. Our room was fairly clean and cozy. Food was mediocre.The resort is on the ocean but there is no beach. Beautiful clean pool with gorgeous view of the ocean. Don't expect any help or information from the owner unless you speak French. Even tho he clearly speaks English. There was... More

Placed perfectly at the beach in the Chaweng area of Koh Samui Island in Thailand, this is the perfect beach-front property. The breakfast, consumed leisurely sitting on the rising-sun soaked chairs, was nice and tasty. Even better were the rooms which were spacious, well-provided for and just perfect for a great night's rest. If you happen to be in Chaweng,... More

We stayed here as a reasonably large family and friends group for a few nights after a family wedding elsewhere on the island (also very good - see other review)and found the resort a great place to stay. Was slightly worried by a couple of reviews suggesting a grumpy owner, but we found all the staff, including the French owner,... More

We recently had a large group of friends and family over to Thailand for our Wedding. We based ourselves in Chaweng for our hen and stag parties and chose Papillion because of it's proximity to the airport. Papillion Resort was stunning and serene - a great place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip but... More

Great value, really quiet and calm. 15 minutes walk to the center of chewang beach. The pool is great and the wiew to the sea is amazing. Very recomended. We have a great vacation. If you want to be in the center of chewang, this is not the place.

Stayed at this resort for 11 days, staff were great the only issue we really had was with one of the owner we found. Him to be most arrogant and unhelpful. We stayed in a bungalow and whilst the beds were very hard (this is normal in most Asian countries) the rooms were extremely clean and well maintained. Whilst the... More
