Great place to stay ”
Highly recommend this place. Quiet and very friendly staff. Beware as many hotel are directly under the planes approach path and it gets very noisy. This place is further east although still close to town. Enjoy your stay there.
Private with nice view”
This hotel has very good view. You can see along the Chaweng beach and you can step directly to the sea. Very nice & friendly staff. You consult them everything about your trip (cheapest car rental, speed boat package, dining area, etc.). As booking on low season, this hotel is very private for us :)
Its a paradise resort will great hospitality team”
I booked and paid for a standard bungalow room,however when I walked in upon my arrival,I was greeted by a friendly staff named Ling,she was so helpful and will try to help you in any ways possible if you have any issues,so when I checked in she upgraded me to a sea front room,no extra charge,but I will still enjoy a better benefit. The rest team were also great people,they welcomed us with a welcome drink.I will say its a more convenient resort whereby the staff will be able to arrange tour and motorbike or car rental for you,which they did for me as well. It is abit far from nite life,however if you can rent a bike then it will be easier,as renting car is a waste bcos traffic in chaweng street is very bad at nite.Motor bike can be rented at Thai Bhat 200 per day and car 900 to 100 bhat per day.
Location is good. Friendly staff although is hard for us to understand them as they lack of English. The pool is great. But I was freak out when I saw the room (interior). It was very old furniture, old painting and very hard mattress. I have made a complaint and the resort owner was very friendly and very helpful. For me to return to the resort is a NO NO until they refurbish.
Relaxing, quiet, friendly hotel”
We stayed here for 10 nights and we have no complaints. The staff are lovely, very cheerful and helpful. The rooms are clean and the pool is great. We have a 7 year old son who enjoyed himself. The breakfast menu has a good choice. The walk into chaweng Centre takes approx 20 minutes but it is very hilly up and down and along a busy road however you can cut across the beach which a lot nicer.
Great place,friendly staff, would definitely go back ”
We enjoyed the fact that the resort was out of the hum drum of central chaweng. 2 kms into town was an easy walk. The resort staff were very accommodating with our various requests. Value for money and comfortable amenities.
Very nice little resort at the end of Chaweng beach. Friendly staff. The owner Stefan is a real character, after five minutes with him I felt like I had known him for several years. I'd recommend this resort to anyone that doesn't have to live in the very middle of Chaweng beach.
Great view, nice pool&garden, friendly staff”
Overall great. Away from the crowd. Can swim to opposite island with nice isolated beach and lagoon. Count 1h walk to center or 50 thb for taxi. Note: no beach at hotel and restaurant expensive but good.
Resort too strong word . Limited facilities, small pool area, pool not clean. Could not spend most of day there as would expect with holiday resort.rely on sea frontage to claim their 3 star rating, not enough!
great place to stay”
it was great place about three miles from nightlife if you want it hotel will sort it . pool is good pool table best i have play on in thailand dogs are friendly anyone that has bin to thailand knows the dog choose there owner. every night went out the room the dog was grurding door lol. if you like a family run hotel this is the place to go if you not sure email then owner and he will be strate with you.
Very Nice beach, just in front”
We just stay one night, and appreciate the location of this resort. On the end on Chaweng beach, not so far the night Life, but enough for stay in peaceful place on the beach. Dont realy like the bungalows but the restaurant is very very good
very pleasant resort well situated. good food.”
Papillon is run by French and Thai persons. It is very good value for money. It is located away from the bustle of Chawaeng street, but actually only 2 minutes away by car. The staff are friendly and helpful. Popular with french and germans. Staff are good humoured helpful and kind. Its a cute place and literally five minutes from the airport too, made my trip so easy and relaxing. very good food as you can imagine...and good breakfast. i loved their bacon sandwich. Highly reccommended.
Lovely hotel and service with a smile”
very friendly resort, nice staff, tasty breakfast, wonderfull pool area, free welcome drink, when you are hot and tired Be carefull, local taxi drivers sometimes make a mistake, take you to Papillon Residence, instead of Papillon Resort! Tell them the difference, because they do not read english! Thanks for staff, he solved every problem!
Great location but building works very noisy!”
We stayed 3 nights in the end because we liked the location and the price but they were doing renovations at the hotel right by the pool which was very noisy when trying to relax. We then moved to another hotel in Lamai beach for the rest of our trip. The rooms were clean if a little dated and the shower ran hot and cold.
Fantastic beachfront hotel with French ambience”
We stayed at Papillon Resort for 3 nights, and loved our time there in Koh Samui! We stayed in one of the cute bungalows, and it was a room with some funky interior decorations and art work. The hotel is run by French management, and the majority of the guests seemed to be French. The staff were excedingly friendly, and helpful to us for all of our needs; they arranged for a scooter rental for us, which was delivered promptly to our hotel. The included breakfast was quite good, with a few different a la carte selections available. We had dinner there the first night, and enjoyed some yummy Thai dishes off of the menu which featured typical French fare as well as local Thai cuisine... Overall, a great experience, and a lovely place to stay in a more quaint setting, rather than at one of the larger resorts.
Super-friendly staff and excellent atmosphere!”
Stayed here almost two weeks and it felt like home. We booked two rooms, but they upgraded us to adjoining rooms which gave us an extra room (small) in the middle that was great for my son's nap time. The staff were fantastic and entertained and played with my 22-month old son the whole time we were there. A short taxi or tuk-tuk ride from Chaweng, but far enough away that you don't have to deal with the partying and noise of the main beach area. One downfall is that there is no beach at the hotel (closest beach is a 5-10 minute walk) but the ocean-front pool, patio and restaurant are fantastic. As it is a french resort, there is a lot of smoking, so sometimes it wasn't great with a toddler, but it wasn't terrible either. Overall, we were more than satisfied with our stay at Papillon!
France in a "nutshell" !”
you might wonder what a review of a hotel in koh samui, thailand may have to do with france in a "nutshell", well, this is what this hotel is all about! in a "nutshell" because it only has 23 rooms, on the other hand, if you enjoy being greeted by your name, not having to give your room number when you order something, enjoy having a personnal deco in your room, walk only 30 seconds to go from your room to the pool or the bar/restaurant and have a beautiful view of the sea, you have found the right place! the other wonderful thing about papillon resort is the food, the hotel being run by a frenchman food has it's own very special place, not only will you find all the traditionnal thai dishes (with sometimes a "french spin" to it), but also traditionnal french dishes (with sometimes a "thai spin" to it)! all in all, "the best of both worlds" !!! now your thinking "this is to good to be true", well, there are some down sides, if you want to be in "the middle of the action", you will have to rent a car or a motorcycle or take a "transfer/taxi" from the hotel to the center of chaweng, (100 bahts). chaweng being one of the most beautiful beaches in samui, there is no beach at the hotel when the tide is low. the pool is really only there to refresh yourself, if you're planning to loose those extra kilos by swimming you will soon have your head spinning ! on the other hand, there are as many sun loungers as there are guests (no need to get up at 6 in the morning to "reserve" your chair)! to sum it up, not only a charming, intimate place to be but also with all the service you would get from the "bigger" hotels. ps: forgot to mention the jacuzzi next to the pool, the beautiful setting in the midst of a tropical garden and the tender loving care of "koko", masseuse who tends to the well being of your body from 10am to 5pm (most of the time later) everyday.
Staff organize everything for us even a baby bed.
Reasonable for money”
Surprisingly great location and nice facilities”
Was expecting a place to wait out a flight and ended up having a great stay. Walk along the beach and check out the great restaurants and fire shows. Low tide at sunset was amazing!
