Wonderfully relaxing stay
Had such an amazing stay at Papillon that we extended our stay by another night. Brilliant service by all the staff with my best breakfast in Thailand. Kine even drove us to the ferry terminal due to our transfer being late. Only problem being the relatively hard mattress & pillows. Otherwise highly recommended!

A great place to stay
We loved our time at Papillon. We ended up staying longer than we planned because we liked it so much. The food is delicious, the beach is close by, the pool is awesome and the staff are beyond friendly and helpful. Tony, the owner, makes a point of getting to know his guests. We will most definitely be back again one day to this paradise.

Very good
This is the second time I have stayed at Papillon Bungalows and was very pleased yet again. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. Bungalows are lovely and clean and it is only a short walk to the beach. I will definitely be returning.

Highly recommend
Small, low key, intimate resort. Great location, short 200m walk to mid Long Beach. Staff very friendly and helpful. Terrific value.

Perfect place to relax
Papillon is a wonderful little oasis and a perfect place to relax. Cosy bungalows are about 5 minutes walk to a great stretch of beach where you can play volleyball, sunbathe, have a drink at a beach bar and go for a nice swim. The food at Papillon was the best we tried on the island and cheaper than at some restaurants along the beach. Staff are extremely helpful and booked the trips we selected and helped us to negotiate discounts too. You can hire a motorbike there, relax in cosy pagodas or with a book in a hammock. We only booked originally for 2 nights but ended up staying for the rest of our holiday and will not hesitate to go back.

Great intimate and quiet retreat in Koh Lanta near beach! Excellent service!
Loved this place! Quiet, clean, serene, close to beach but far enough away from party scene. Great family vacation spot. Shady trees and foliage keep premises shaded and cool in the hot sun. The staff were very friendly and provided helpful ideas for things to do. Service was impeccable. The owner is friendly and very responsive. I also met some great fellow travelers and families. Great value! I will definitely return to Papillon!

The Best
Booked this resort purely based on the reviews and the fact that management responds to peoples reviews. I paid for 13 days in advance on one of the larger bungalovs, which I thought it might be a bit of a gamble based on previous experiences in Thailand. We ended up having a wonderful time. I fully agree with other reviews, this is a great resort with exceptional staff. From the moment we arrived to the time it was to leave we felt almost like being home. Small and simple bungalovs spread spaciously around the garden gives you privacy and the bungalovs are kept very clean and in good condition, as is the whole resort area. Nice feature is having separate AC and fan on the bungalov. Food in the restaurant is excellent, as it is all around Ko Lanta. Special thanks for having the muesli + yogurt + fruits combo at breakfast. In this price range I doubt there is better alternative available, amazing value! Thanks again Papillon team, you are the best!
