Just returned from our second stay at Papillon in two years and had a great time! - Relaxed with only a handful of bungalows makes for a peaceful stay Papillon which attracts mostly couples and families with young children. There is also a hearty breakfast every morning!
The rooms although basic are adequate, detached with aircon, fridge, TV, DVD and shower/toilet en suite. My only small gripe is our bungalow (No. 1) had a very firm bed, which is common in Thailand however this was still hard even with a mattress cover added on request. The bed remained hard over the whole holiday with a few poor nights sleep as a result. My other issue was with no mosquito net over the window - there was a large net which covered the bed however if like me you prefer not to sleep with the air con blasting a natural breeze is a nice choice to have. This would be a very cheep addition to allow guests to open the windows during the night.
This aside we had a great stay - the staff are lovely and genuine (unlike our experience in some of the resorty type places!). The area is well located although to full enjoy the island you need to rent a scooter which gives you the freedom to eat anywhere and enjoy different beaches and trips to the National Park and Old Lanta.
The owners are opening a second resort in Relax Bay this Autumn so we'll be back! (please find softer beds though!!)

- 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
