“Very nice - but lacking the last, small details for being excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

We had a beautiful beach villa and loved the wonderful views and the sound of the ocean. The resort is decorated in good style, the service is nice, the massage is good and the place is peaceful. But the small, extra details are lacking; the breakfast is boaring (same two fruits all 4 mornings, 1 slice of bacon per portion) and the staff is friendly but not at same level as experienced in Thailand.

Quiet, serene location: tranquility!
Friendly, service minded staff.
Clean, spacious villas, we stayed in Villa 21. Great with own pool.
European owners influenced aesthetic, very nice.
Great food, pricey by Thai standards.

Downside: Location offers little else, great for quiet getaway. Some restaurants are further up the beach around the bend, recommended.
Ongoing refurbishment at the time of our stay detracted a little on the general overall impression.

Tip: Amsterdam Bar, vis a vis main entrance. Best sunset and drinks on Koh Phangan!

Overall we had a wonderful stay!

Very enjoyable holiday in Koh Phangan Kupu Kupu, Beautiful sunset from the beach. Enjoyed a boat tour on offer is very challenging. Beautiful scenery, a touch of the arrangement of rooms and environments are unique and charming. Friendly service. Will definitely come again. want to share to all colleagues for a vacation in Kupu Kupu Phangan

We booked a beach villa for 10 nights with my wife. First Night we stayed at villa 28- but could not sleep all night because of the bad smell of toilet, also the voice of the air-con!! Morning i talked to management, they changed our villa to oher side, villa : 14, it was better, but all same! shower with electricity water heater! toilet is also like a 3 star hotel- no ventilation, shover gel, shampoo like dish-soap! You pay like 5 star, but service and room quality is only 3 star!

Prices included with breakfast, but there are only 3 type breaksfast, what you can choose, Thai, European and American, after 3 days, you can be bored, what you should eat!!! The prices is 3-5 times expensive than town restaurants, Evening, if you want to eat hotel, you have to pay around 1000-1500 Baht for a dinner for a person, and that time there was a French Chef, only French Meals, or you should go to town, but it is not easy, you should find a taxi, or rent a bike!! If you are not a good moto-bike driver, it can be risky, we had a small accident :( In town, there are local restaurant, open air food seller, what you can choose, yes maybe not very hygenic, but tasty.

Hotel is nice, slient, place, you can relax, but not ideal sea for swim, only knee level, maybe it can be good family with children. you can relax at your villa and your private pool, but be careful, i had an ear infection from the private pool, although they disinfect the private pool regularly.

Also be careful, the hotel management charge 3% extra, if you wish to pay with credit card. it was a bag surprise for us.

Looks like paradise, but after 1 night, you woke up from dream

We went 4 times in Ko Phangan and it is the first hotel in the Island we loved so much !
Everything is perfect , the location was so beautiful , with amazing sunset and very nice view on small islands , the garden was very charming with an incredible pool , the decoration in the room was just so nice with wood everywhere , very confortable , the private pool in front of the beach was a dream ...
all the people working inside were very kind and very profesional ,

We tasted the restaurant also , the food was delicious , and the place so good to eat or drink a cocktail with the wonderful sunset !

so the only thing we can say is I think it is certainly one of the best hotel in Ko Phangan , near Thong Sala wich is very convenient , if we have chance to come back in Ko Phangan we will go in Kupu Kupu for sure !

I stayed at Kupu Kupu for a long stay during the beginning of April. What a disappointment. The staff was confused of anything on the menu and brought us the wrong drinks and food just about every time we ordered, food was way overpriced, cobwebs in all corners of my room. Safe has a constant malfunction and beeping, and despite the staffs efforts they just seem to be running around covering up imperfections. Just not the experience we were expecting. Yes the property is great and has a lot of potential, but to be honest they are just superbly unfit for service and unprofessional in their operations. Oh, not to mention our pool was foggy on it's best day.

This has to be the most amazing place i have ever stayed ever!!!!
Myself and my husband were staying on the island after just getting married at the b52 resort and were looking for somewhere abit more luxurious to have our honeymoon, we couldn't have possibly picked better if we tried!! As soon as we arrived we were offered an upgrade to a villa by the pool number 29 and offered complimentary massages as it was our honeymoon!!
When we got to our room we were blown away it was stunning we had our own pool which we spent most of our time in and our room "wow" it was simply stunning beautiful bath and amazing big bed with beautiful drapes around it just perfect, i saw in another review someone complaining there wasn't any hot water you just request it at reception and they bring over a big tanks of steaming hot water and we had the most amazing bath. The breakfast is gorgeous i loved it and the bring it to your room so you can enjoy the beautiful balcony.
If you enjoy a spectacular view and outstanding sunset this is the place to go OMG the the most perfect location for the sunset, there is a bar opposite the resort called the amsterdam bar where people all gather especially for the sunset well the resorts has an even better view i was so impressed!!
I could go on and on about this place but one things for sure i highly recommend its paradise and we had the perfect honeymoon here its romantic, quiet, peaceful and beautiful, the staff are so friendly and always say hello and make you feel so welcome they speak perfect english and the manager is so lovely.
We would defiantly return without a doubt maybe for our anniversary and considering its only been open a few months its doing great theres only one thing that i will say thats a negative and that its very pricey drinks and food but that literally is it.
We had a wonderful time.
