After travelling for 7 months, on a budget, Papillon Bungalows was an affordable treat. We'd planned to stay 6 nights, but we loved the resort so much we stayed for 11 nights in total, and we still found it difficult to leave! It was the longest and most relaxing place we've stayed in 7 months of travelling.
We stayed in a standard bungalow which was lovely, clean and spacious with a double bed, seating area, table, wardrobe, tv and dvd player (there is a very large dvd library!) fridge and ensuite bathroom. Each bungalow was decorated differently and had its own porch, seats and hamocks and the bunaglows were well spaced out in the tropical gardens. The resort was very close to the beautiful Long Beach, about a 2 min walk, where we watched some fantastic sunsets. It was also close to restaurants and bars, about a 10 min drive to Saladan and 15 min walk to a smaller town with a 7/11.
There was a lovely pool with a good shallow section for sitting in or for small children. The restuarant was great, with yummy freshly baked bread every day, pizzas and thai food. There were plenty of hammocks and comfy chairs as well as a small library and free wifi.
Caroline and Jens, and the staff, were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They helped with bus, ferry, mopeds, etc bookings. All in all, we loved Papillon, it was a very relaxing & quiet place, and we will definitely come back. We miss it already!

- 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 ... more less
