Kupu Kupu Phangan Beach Villas and Spa by l'Occitane

Reviewed March 2, 2013

We were there for two nights at the end of February. The property is beautiful and quiet. It is far enough from the craziness of Haad Rin, and it's a nice walk into Thang Sala, where there is a great night market with a lot of stalls serving tasty/cheap food.

The resort has a really nice mix of guests. The staff are super friendly and helpful. We had a delicious dinner one night at the hotel restaurant--the food was mostly Thai, but with some innovative twists. I loved the look of the villas, which were big and airy, with high pitched roofs, dark wood, and perfect transitions from public to private space. The beach is a bit narrow, but the pool is very pretty and relaxing.

Overall, we had a great stay and would happily go back!

We stayed in Villa 26 on the beach for 5 nights this week just passed and it was the most relaxing beautiful room and villa we have ever stayed in. Yes the resort is new and there are a couple of small issues which will work themselves as time passes but the location and the intention of the staff more than makes up for it. Its worth paying the extra money to be on the beach and if its couple time you need request villa 26.The location is 5 minutes from Thong Sala Pier which has a great food market and everything you need.I was concerned that we would be too close to the full moon madness on the island but the resort is situated on the opposite end to Hadd Rin and a short bike ride from Hadd Salad. Thankyou Kupu staff, we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: All rooms have great seafront views but 26 is the closest to the beach with a larger balcony.

We had a nice stay at Kupu Kupu. Facilities are nice and view from the room was awesome. The resort opened about a month ago and they were not ready.

Staff is still shaky on understanding basic English requests. Lighting in rooms is not very good. No hot water for beautiful bath tub and sinks. Small hot water heater for shower was adequate.

We made it clear we had a gluten allergy issue, manager who is American and purports to be head chef, said he totally understood and would serve accordingly. Each morning we were given wheat toast and I suspect pad Thai containing soy sauce, which contains wheat. Waiter could not understand request to poached eggs and brought an omelette. No bar and no safety railings at resort. Not friendly for anyone that has a handicap of any sort.

Staff was very warm and friendly, just not yet well trained and lack language skills. If you are running a high end resort, you need proper staff that can work with people from around the world.

We think the place has potential but needs to immediately address some basics and should have done so before opening in late December. A soap dish would be nice and more than one trash can in the large room would be good.

We had a nice meal at a funky little Thai restaurant down the beach and really enjoyed the Same Same Cooking School not far from the ferry dock.
