Best resort In Koh Phangan! Great location, close to Thongsala and the main pier. The main swimming pool is really nice. The view from all the Villas is just amazing. The breakfast is really good, which is not always easy to find in Thailand...
I stayed in Kupu Kupu twice, first time with my girlfriend and second time with my family. we all loved the place!
And last but not least, the staff is very friendly (restaurant and front office)! Can't wait to go back...

Kupu Kupu KP... A 10/10 place for couples.

November is usually a peak monsoon time in KP(Koh Phangan). We were warned by one and all. But it does not rain on a stretch for more than 4 days. There are sunny times during the day. Reading all this, we had taken a risk to visit Koh Phangan. Now the whole point is, if it is raining what do you do on an island? You need to stay in a property which will be perfect even during the rains.

So Kupu Kupu made the perfect sense among all the hotels that we checked in KP. Every villa in Kupu has a private pool which is perfectly cleaned everyday. It is very close to Thong Sala the main pier of KP and the market area, around 10 odd mins by Bike. It has Kayaks, snorkeling kits, lengthy outdoor pool, sun decks, Spa, restaurant and a small size beach area.
All in all it has everything.

But people bring the most out of this place. We stayed for 6 nights... too less after we came here and experienced this place. Ivo and Marine were fantastic. They were the reservation managers who made sure that we had no trouble during our stay. We even got a complimentary upgrade thanks to Marine and even shifted our Villa type to experience a new accommodation. Everything was flawless. Ivo's knowledge about the island provided us with an understanding as to what is the best possible things to see on the island... Beaches ofcourse... :)

Being jains, our food requirements were a bit tricky when it came to meeting them on this island. Fabick(Hope I have spelled it correct) the F&B manager was awesome. He understood our requirements and provided us with the best possible service that we dreamt off. Pen and Kan were so sweet. I come for a country where I have seen, super high standards of hospitality. Seeing them, I felt, I was at home. Their support and caring made sure my food requirements are met to perfection.

Few of the pleasant surprises that they gave were the cake, mousse, coconut water... I have started missing all of them as I am typing.

The whole staff is always next to you and providing you with the utmost service, while providing the best possible privacy.

The Villas were just too good. A big bath tub right in the corridor made sure that you do not be away for a lot of time from water on this island. The beds were nicely prepared by house keeping staff.

Well maintained bike, Kayaks, snorkeling kit showed that the resort cares a lot for their customers. I would say that the beach area is too small and usually you find the same after 4pm. But being a low lying area, you can walk in the water for a good amount of area and enjoying swimming without fear of depths. There are rocks near the resort which are natural photoshoot points. Snorkeling near them, will give you a chance to enjoy the fishes that swim nearby.

Away from the party places, the quietness provides you with utmost relaxation. Enjoy snorkeling in the morning after breakfast, private pool in the afternoon, kayak in the evening with sunset view and the blanket of stars in the night... what else do you need.....

For the first 4 days we did find ample sunlight, but when it started raining, it was pouring. So if you are coming in November only for water sports, do come with good time in hand. You never know when the weather can get rough.

it makes no sense if i recommend this property. I feel the person who reads this review and experiences what it is like by standing in my shoes will surely decide whats the best choice.

Looking forward to come back asap! Thanks hotel staff for providing us with the memorable stay of our lives!

Room Tip: All the villas have their own privacy levels. The private pool of each is visible from some place or...

Stayed here for a few nights in early October. Found this resort to be wonderful. Lovely staff, french girl on reception was very helpful. Rooms are amazing, beautiful, you have your own plunge pool. The views are truly wonderful. Food was great, especially the breakfast. Would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Beautiful hotel located in a very quiet area, not much to do around there so we took a taxi for the foodmarket at nights. The beach wasn't that great outside the hotel, but the private pool was amazing! Loved it! We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2013. The room was nice, but the bathroom doesn't fit the standard at all. We enjoyed our stay here very much and the staff were so sweet.:-) It's a great place for a romantic getaway!<3

We have spent 7 days in Kupu Kupu Resort. The resort is very beautiful. The villas are great, very clean, big. The swimming pool of the villa is very convenient, especially when you have children who take a nap. You can be in the pool and let them sleep. The resort is small so it is not crowded.
The staff is very friendly. You meet them everyday. They take time to discuss with you. They give you information. The atmosphere is very peaceful. We really appreciated this. They are very helpful. Special thanks to Marine, Thibault and Maxime. They are really great.
You can rent jeeps and motorbike at the hotel. It is very convenient.
I really recommend this resort. It is one of the best I have experienced.

i and my wife on honeymoon 2sept till 6sept 2013, after we read a few review on kupu kupu,we decide to stay for 4nights..firstly we email resort,and Assistant General Manager Marine Blévin very helpful for us.

From the 1st day we arrive,we checkin late around 9pm..but they wait for us..in the reservation,we choose sunset pool villa,after spa at kupu kupu have a lilltle bit problem,so Marine upgrade sea view pool villa its a perfect for us from beds,restroom,pool,so comfortable,design so romantic,there nothing i can complain and the sea view and sunset view which so amazing. Staff was very friendly and always helpful, they always smile :)

Breakfast very simple but delicious,as for muslim,its a great because we can eat also..for services its very effective because they can arrange for you if want to take meal on your villa,there no charge for extra services,we also get a private dinner in our room,they decorate very nice for us,one of waiter very helpful,because he suggest for us a few meal halal food.

Location resort not far from city thongsala,we rent a motor,it take 5 minutes only..
on resort its Absolutely amazing view,with private beach,clear water,swimming pool..its really great for us.

If u muslim people,its not big problem to find halal food, i found a few restaurant to offer you halal food,but they close really early,only one restaurant open till 12pm.(check out picture).

So,if you want to find a place for relax,honeymoon,more privacy,kupu kupu its a great choice..you will not disappointed
as you for a party person or backpackers,maybe its not the right choice.
thankyou for Marine and all staff kupu kupu because made my honeymoon the unforgettable moment in my life.

Room Tip: get a sea view pool villa,it very nice.
