“Amazing Hotel, Amazing staff”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

We stayed here in April 2012 for 2 nights! Amazing hotel with spacious rooms! Although the bath/shower were outdoors it was still pleasent!! During our stay I celebrated my bday and my boyfriend had arranged a number of surprises for me and the hotel was extremely helpful and they did so much to help him! Out of all the hotels we stayed at during our trip to Thailand, I would not have spent my bday in any other hotel! This one exceeded our expectations by far!
The area itself is quiet and peaceful which is nice but if you are planning on going to the full moon party it is far from Haad Rin (say 45 mins by road) but its OK we didnt mind the journey!

My husband and I stayed her for 13 nights end of March/ April this year. We had an ocean view cottage which we absolutely loved. The cottage was large, mini bar well stocked and a large bathroom dressing area. Their was a jacuzzi bath that was really deep- but be prepared if you want one before midnight you better start running it by 7pm!! Everyday the lovely cleaners came and cleaned the room beautifully. The balcony was massive and the whole thing surrounded by beuatuful flowers as the resort is set in a tropical garden.
The resort was really chilled when we arrived it was very quiet. The pool is the largest and nicest on Had Salad and you can relax by the pool all day whilst Ong keeps your drinks topped up (thanks Ong..)
But the best thing about the resort was the lovely golden labrador Peanut, or as we liked to call her Weanut the Walruss. She was a legend.
Only tiny gripe was in the last few days there were allot of young children, some of whom were left to scream and shout at the tops of their voices in the pool area all day. Not the managements fault though but more the parents lack of consideration for other guests who had paid good money for a relaxing and peaceful holiday!!
Had Salad is a lovely beach although the tide can get quite low so you have to go far out to be able to swim, but the sand is beuatiful white and there is some okay snorklling to be had. In the evening it is mainly restaurants but a couple of good bars stay open late - we had some good nights at My Way. There are some good bars at Had Yao which is the next beach down- you can walk there in about 15mins or hire a motorbike for 200 baht a day.
If you get the chance check out a full moon party- take some sunglasses though if like us you are still on the beach dancing at 8am the following morning!!
All in all we loved our time here and would go back at the drop of a hat and to the Green Papaya if only to be reunited with the Weanut.
Thanks to all the management Pee wee, Ong, Boh and all the others. Hopefully see you again next year.

Room Tip: Ocean view and deluxe cottages are better

Green Papaya is a haven of peace on Haad Salad beach. Amazingly friendly and warm staff, delicious organic breakfast, quiet swimming pool area, great inHouse masseuse, and outstanding management who goes the extra length to make you feel at home.
Green Papaya stands out by far as the highest quality resort on Haad Salad. Its the place to go if you want a carefree, relaxing time in Kah Pang Ngan.
Green Papaya also steps away from Yoga Retreat, where anyone can take walk in classes on a daily basis. A real plus!

I booked this hotel at the last minute over new year knowing nothing about about it except its name. I was very relieved to find the place a hidden gem away from the hustle ans bustle. Beautiful location, fantastic surprises like the outdoor shower- that was fun- and a great pool to read a book at. I had family staying in 4 other resorts along salad beach and green papaya was the envy of the lot. Overall, what a find.

We have just returned from spending 10 days at Green Papaya Resort,what a place,if you are thinking of a holiday in Koh Phangan then look no furthur......Its simply the best.The staff,the setting,the gardens,the views and the food,I could go on and on!.
We had a lovely family villa with pool which was beautiful,we loved the outdoor bathrooms,it was lovely to walk barefoot around the pool and on to the beach,As the food was so good at green Papaya we didnt feel much like eating elsewhere but there are some lovely restaurants a stroll along the beach.This place is simply heaven,a true taste of thailand and its friendly people,we will return for sure.

Had a phenomenal time. Great room, great pool, great service, great beach. Simply a wonderful place for a wonderful holiday. And all the other guests we chatted to similarly thought the resort is brilliant. Particularly if you have small kids - there's a great shallow pool and the staff were great with the kids - entertaining them and accommodating all our needs. We'll be back!
