Very nice staff, nice bungalows and great food ”
Tony from Sweden is the owner of the papillion and a very nice and friendly host. He and the rest of the staff where always smiling and in a good mood (even tho it was raining all week long...).
The bungalows and the garden are very clean. The pool looks very nice.
Great Thai food. Try the hot pan!

My 4th stay at this little paradise on Lanta, and I think that says it all!. It's clean, quiet and chilled, with bungalows spaced out around a quiet, tree-filled garden, the perfect spot for a bit of hammock-time! The staff are some of the most attentive and friendly that I've come across, and the onsite restaurant does fantastic, reasonably priced and very tasty thai food which you can get tailored to your own personal level of spiciness, and which cater for us vegetarians with tofu versions of most dishes. There are also a few western dishes for those missing home. The included breakfast is basic but good, and sets you up nicely for the day. A small plunge pool is an added bonus, and lovely for a cool dip at the end of a hot day! Bungalows themselves are basic, but perfectly adequate, coming with large comfy bed, aircon, fan, mozzie nets, fridge and private bathroom with hot water. My only small gripe is with the bedding. although spotlessly clean, I'd prefer a couple more pillows, and more that just a thin top-sheet, though they do state that you can request extra blankets etc. The beach itself is only a couple of minutes walk away down a little dirt track, and there are some nice places to eat and drink. There are also a mini-mart, ATM, and clinic within a few minutes out on the street. I'm already missing my little home-from-home.
Thank you very much for a great review, and that you have taken your time to write it! :-)
It's always a pleasure having you here at Papillon, and like always we started to miss you immediately after you've left. We'd like seeing you laying in your hammock, reading your books and just relaxing there or at the pool area soon again. ;-)
We do appreciate your input regarding extra pillows and blankets, and as you've wrote you can always get it on request from the reception.
Thanks again, and we'll hopefully see you soon again! :-)
Best Wishes and Regards

The short version: This was a great place. We liked it so much we stayed longer than we had planned. Highly recommend.
The longer version:
Rooms and grounds are very clean, spacious and well-maintained. The pool - while small - is sparkling clean. The rooms are very quiet.
Wifi is pretty strong and reliable.
It's a short, pretty walk down to the beach where you can watch the sunset. There are several restaurants and bars once you get to the beach, in both directions. In fact, with Long Beach being a 'long beach' you can walk all the way up or all the way down to the various eateries that run along the water.
Staff is very friendly and helpful (as is the owner - I talked his ear off).
Restaurant is great. I wasn't able to try the breakfast, but lunch and dinner were tasty. Service is fast. They have a 'snacks' menu for quick, little bites. The restaurant is cozy and a relaxing place to sit. They also have palapas with mats if you prefer.
The rooms are a nice size and have little touches that make a difference:
Hot water kettle
Shelf/hanging shelf in bathroom
Very strong A/C
Shelves for clothes/supplies
Outdoor patio chairs

We loved everything about this place - we went last November and it was one of the nicest places - fantastic staff and close to beach. Cannot recommend enough.

Perfect stay with super nice staff”
We actually just wanted to spent 3 days in Ko Lanta but extended our stay. One of the reasons was the nice staff and our super nice bungalow. The whole area is clean and put together lovely.
You can get water for free, rent motorbikes or DVDs directly at the front desk and it's only a five minute walk to the beach which has a nice restaurant, chill and massage area. But you can also eat at papillon bungalows itself. The food is very nice.
Ican only recommend staying here :)
