We hadn't booked anything when we arrived in Thailand, and were lucky to find a bungalow here. We liked it som much that we came back 2 times and stayed in 3 different bungalows (last minute booking), so we know the resort pretty well now. Staff: Always helpful, always smiling. They made the entire stay so easy for us and...

Stayed here in January 2016 and really liked it. Not much to add to previous reviews really, Swedish owned and managed, they remain visible and available so none of the normal English/Thai communication issues (although the Thai staff are excellent as well) Rooms are simple, private and spotlessly clean. Pool is 'natural style' with various depths so great for lounging...

Highly recommended, 5/5! Such a beautiful, quiet, relaxed and clean place. I stayed there only for 2 nights in Jan since they were fully booked - so remember to book early! Bungalows are really clean and nicely decorated. They are not too close to each other so this place doesn't feel too crowded. You will have your own space here....

I spent 3 nights at Papillon and I strongly recommend this resort to anyone visiting Lanta. It is a 3 star resort so keep that in mind. The bungalow was clean and fresh and so was the bathroom.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
