We stayed for eight nights in January in a big aircon bungalow, nicely spaced out in the gardens, giving privacy and peace. There's a DVD/TV and kettle and fridge in the room, and DVD library to browse. The beach is a short walk away, is never crowded and has a beautiful sunset. The pool was blissful, and the food always excellent. The breakfasts in particular were great, and the coffee refills really set us up for the day. Papillon is well maintained and thoughtfully managed. However, perhaps the biggest joy were the staff, who were always warm, friendly, and helpful. There's something special here with the staff - and I'm guessing its the relationship and care the owners have nurtured. Certainly Papillon seems very busy, so I'd recommend advance booking. I really do hope we get to return.

- 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
