Booked Pappillon Bungalows on the strength of trip advisor reviews. We stayed one night then moved on. The rooms are dirty, damp, smell mouldy and dark. The place is in need of a major refurbishment. There are some first class places to stay in koh Lanta please do not make the same mistake I did. I fail to see why...

It's obvious that someone is trying to sabotage our business, and I must say this must be the lowest way to do it! :-( To start with we haven't had anyone with the name Sam Sunderland (if that's really your name) that have stayed here, and everything you've wrote is so wrong. Luckily there are honest and good people that...

My wife and I stayed for 3 days over New Year's and we absolutely adored Papillon Bungalows. Not only were the rooms spacious, but both the staff and the food at the restaurant were INCREDIBLE. We also rented scooters from the front desk with no hassle, as well as booked tours and transportation to Krabi. Everyone was always very happy...

Stayed at the end of Oct/start of November, lovely friendly helpful staff, great food and atmosphere. Nice spacious, comfortable rooms, spotlessly clean as was the rest of the resort. Good location, a few minutes walk to the beach. I would recommend renting a scooter directly from the hotel to explore the island. Lovely manager who took the time to get...

Thank you for a fantastic review! :-) We are really thankful for your review, and the description of Papillon is also really great. Also, I discover myself blushing when you described me as a "Lovely manager", but without our great staff it would never work out as good as it does. We also hope you will return soon!

Our five night stay here was exceptional. The location is great, just north of central on the west coast, making it cheap and simple to access all areas easily. The hotel surrounds may look humble from the street, but once you enter the barn like reception and dining area you are overwhelmed by a sense of peace and tranquility. The...

We spent 14 nights at Papillon Bungalows and we enjoyed every minute. The bungalows are set in a lovely tropical garden and are very clean and spacious, each having a cozy little terrace with a hammock. They were very well equipped with dvd player, tv, a small refrigerator, as well as an electric kettle which came in very handy when...

We stayed at Papillon two years ago and absolutely loved it, so decided to return for an eleven night stay after spending two weeks in Phuket. We had read from Tripadvisor reviews that the place was under new management, but we needn't have worried, the place is just as good as before, if not better. The new management team, led...

We stayed two nights here at the start of a longer trip. The bungalows are simple but clean and perfect for our needs. It's unlikely you'll spend much time in your room as the beautiful beach is a 3 minute walk away. The staff are so friendly and helpful, we were made to feel so welcome straight away. Definitely recommend!

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
