We chose Green Papaya because we wanted a holiday staying right on the beach but with a bit of extra comfort and it didn’t let us down. Having researched all the beach accommodation on Hat Salad, this is clearly on the best part of the beach; quieter with less coral and finer sand. We stayed in a Garden Cottage that was a stone’s throw away from the beach front but slightly set back overlooking the gorgeous pool. The room was a good size with a comfy bed, good facilities and a large bathroom with a lovely novel outdoor shower, don’t worry if you get back from the beach too late and want to avoid the mozzies, there’s also a shower head on the indoor bath that you can use. The room was clean, well kept and on the whole bug-free.
The small resort is peaceful and friendly and very family orientated but we weren’t the only couple without kids there. Away from all the parties this is a peaceful beach and we slept like babies at night. There’s a raised-boat-style restaurant where they serve a decent breakfast but nothing exceptional. Its restaurant right by the beach is small with a limited menu but the staff are absolutely lovely. As with most places on the beach they offer massage from the charismatic masseuse which rivals any Thai massage we’ve had.
For Thailand the price is no more than you would expect, it’s not cheap but you are paying for the comfort and location on the beach. Overall a great spot to kick back and relax in comfort.
