Papillon Bungalows is in a quiet, peaceful garden setting with palm and banana trees, and only 180m from Long beach. The 10 airconbungalows are well spaced apart around the lush tropical garden, giving a great sense of privacy. The bungalows are only a 1 minute walk from the swimming pool, and the cozy Papillon Restaurant is also inside the resort, with normal table seating, or comfortable Thai style cushions to sit on. Also on the menu are Thai and western dishes, fresh coffee and many other beverages. Smiling Thai staff will take care of your every need. We are confident it's important to keep the Thai feeling inside our resort. Welcome //Papillon Team

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Papillon is a great place for lazy days in Koh Lanta. It is family friendly with an afternoon shaded pool and Christer with staff is helpfull in a relaxed and serviceminded fashion. The bungalow was clean and cool and the bed was rock solid. The ocean is close by with two options of axcess. Down by the Chalet you will find a restaurant, a café and sunbeds. The other leads to Pangea beach bar. You can swim in the ocean all day long. The real gem of the place though is the in-house restaurant well worh a trip by itself if you live elsewhere. The meny offers one of the tastiest thai food selection we came across during our Thailand adventure. It is within a comfortable price range and served by a great staff. Plenty of bang for the buck. The care taker Aein in the reception is fantastic, what a star.

Great value accommodation near the beach. Super friendly and welcoming staff. Good breakfasts. Pool area was nice to cool down and shady in the afternoons when the shade has gone from the beach. Good location just off the main road in long beach near restaurants and shops. Only 5 minutes walk to the beach too. Kids loved the bunk beds, hammock and pancakes for breakfast! Perhaps a little tired in places and could benefit from some tlc but nothing to stop us wanting to return, hope to come back one day!

We had a wonderful 5 night stay here. Our bungalow was clean and the AC and hot water worked great. It was nothing fancy but suited our needs perfectly. The pool was clean and cool and perfect for an afternoon swim in the crazy heat. The best part of our stay was the staff. Everyone was so friendly, kind and helpfull. Ing arranged scooters and pick up for the ferry for us. She served us breakfast everyday and even remembered our orders. Shout out to Mr "everything" Keen. Him and his family are so hard working and kind and kept the place in tip top shape. Thanks for all the helpful tips for places to visit on this beautiful island! We look forward to coming back as soon as possible 🙏💞

I can highly recommend the accommodation. The bungalow was large and clean and about a 5 minute walk to the beach. The staff is extremely nice, they advise and help with anything. Breakfast is also very good, you get a choice of several options

We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is about 5 Minutes away from long beach. You reach long beach via a small path , which ends up at really cool bar called Pangea. The rooms were really tidy and clean, also the small pool area. We can also recommend the restaurant here, they serve pretty good food and drinks! We definitely come back here again!

Excellent stay here! Individual bungalows with WiFi, fridge and kettle which was welcome. The staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfasts perfect. We had dinner twice which was outstanding. Close to the shops and restaurants but also 100m to the beach which was clean and not crowded The pool was kept very clean and was lovely to use. Very peaceful and glad to have stayed there.

The staff (Keng) is friendly and very caring, they provide equal care for both Thais and foreigners with lovely service. The room was ok, nothing wrong with it. The place was not far away from market, cafe or restaurant. We recommend rent a motorcycle, it easier to drive around and explore the area.

We had an amazing time staying at the Papillon Bungalows. Each Bungalow is spacious, completely separate and very quite. Rooms are very clean with a fridge and good WiFi. It is just over 100m walk to long beach and walking distance to some great restaurants. The staff and owner are very friendly and helped make our stay a wonderful relaxing experience. Bikes can be rented at the property and staff will help organise any other queries/taxis. Breakfast was excellent and made to order. Would recommend a stay and hopefully we will be back soon.
