This small resort has 11 bungalows spaced well apart amid plenty of foliage, well away from the main road.

It’s a shaded two-minute walk to a very quiet stretch of Long Beach and the excellent Lym’s Rice Bowl, though it’s a hike to anything else. Papillon itself has a good on-site restaurant and bar serving well-done Thai and Western fare in a stylish lounge with lots of dark woods, soft lanterns, axe cushions, hammocks, fairy lights and tasteful Asian-inspired decor. There’s also a small but unique swimming pool with an extra-deep centre and sloped sides that make it more suited to lounging rather than swimming. The white concrete bungalows are simple, spacious and thoughtfully done with firm mattresses on raised wooden platforms, good quality linens, fans in addition to air-con, fridges, large hot-water bathrooms and inviting front porches with hammocks and chairs. The in-room TVs don’t have any channels, but there’s a solid selection of DVDs to choose from in the restaurant. Some guests have complained of a musty smell, though the room we checked out smelled fresh. Prices jump by 300 baht during peak season. Though not quite as inspiring, neighbouring Wonderful Resort is a comparable choice with similar rates.
