Me and my girlfriend stayed at Papillon for 2 weeks, We asked Heaven (the owner) to arrange a taxi for us for when we got off the plane. When we arrived at the airport there was a driver waiting for us with our name on a clipboard.
We stayed in beach hut D1, it had 2 floors - 2 single beds down stairs with the bathroom and a double bed + balcony upstairs. We have never stayed in a beach hut before and we were sceptical before we arrived, however we were pleasantly surprised when we were showed to our room. It was clean and tidy. The balcony overlooked the whole beach (see pics) and was enough for 4 people to relax comfortably. The Location of Papillon is perfect its towards the bottom of the beach which is nice and quiet but only a 5 minute walk along the beach to the 24hr bars which do get a bit crazy.
The food at Papillon is the best on the beach by far. We tried various restaurants - some much more expensive and nothing compared to the range of food & quality at Papillon.
Food was reasonably priced and drinks were also cheap. Papillon had fresh fish every day and the waiters would get it cooked to your desire.
Heaven booked all of our trips: Spice Plant, Fishing trips, Elephant Ride & Wash and Trips to the markets.
All the Staff were friendly and they have a security guard of an evening that puts your mind to rest.
Me and my girlfriend walked along the beach each day and walked into other beach huts & restaurants and we were happy we choose pappillon.
We will be returning in December 2013 and we will be staying at Papillon - If you stay here you won’t be disappointed.
