Stayed 5 nights in August 2016
Great accommodation and friendly staff
We came here for 5 nights at the end of our round the world trip to decompress and get a bit of sun. Aing, Tony and the team were brilliant, they helped us with everything we asked for - cold beer, great food, motorbike rental, activities and airport transfers (in the fanciest taxi I have ever been in). The bungalows are set between the road and the beach with aircon, mossie nets, fridge etc. They are lovely individual bungalows and the atmosphere is relaxed but friendly, there is always someone to say 'hi' to or have a chat with around the bar or pool. Lyms down the road does a great sunset cocktail on the beach too, I would highly recommend this place to anyone wishing to have a relaxed and fun holiday on Lanta away from the party scene.

Nice stay
The front of the place doesn't look like much at all. I was a little cautious upon walking in. The reception area is decent, all outdoors but nice tables for the restaurant area. The pool is clean and well kept. The bungalows are basic and clean. Our issues was with the holes and gaps in the windows and door. So many bugs and geckos were getting in! Also the bathroom flooded after a 2 minute shower. The bed is extremely hard and only comes with a bed sheet. With the air con going at night, it would have been nice to have an extra blanket. The location is the best part as its only a 5 minute walk to the beach where the neighboring resort has a lovely restaurant and beach set up. We spent all of our time there! Overall, a fine stay for the money.

Very clean and well maintained inside and out. Lovely staff. A short walk down a tree lined soi to a lovely beach. Simple and basic bungalows set amongst the trees. A good place to have your own wheels to get around. A good choice for relaxing with a good book.

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.

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.
