I stayed at this resort for about 5 days, and it was heaven. The bungalows are scattered throughout the resort on a multi-tiered hill, with trees and gardens woven between each bungalow, allowing you a great deal of privacy. Their restaurant is French-Thai fusion, and open from 7am till 10:30pm (you can eat breakfast all day, which is fantastic because the fruits served are amazing).

Papillon has a nice pool, though I would recommend hanging out on their lounge chairs at the beach instead, which is right at the base of the resort. My favorite part about this place is the spa - get an oil massage outside while listening to the crashing waves a hundred feet away. Like I said: heaven.

Papillon, je t’adore! One of the few remaining resorts on the island to radiate that old Samui charm, its location on Chaweng Beach offers improbable tranquility considering the ease of access to the center. The 24 beachfront and garden bungalows are all decorated with traditional Thai artwork, and have all required amenities. Completely renovated in 2004 and under French management, it’s a mix of Thai charm and French “joie de vivre”. This is especially true for the food at Le Cafe des Arts, where you’ll find some tasty Thai options but also French food’s greatest hits: frog’s legs, Boeuf Bourguignon, and the crispiest baguette to sop it all up. Whether you choose to spend the day relaxing at the pool, enjoy a nice a massage or set off on an evening of fun in Chaweng, Papillon comes highly recommended.

This is another Samui resort that’s kept its old island charm and also has very reasonable rates for its location on northern Chaweng Beach. It’s tucked away at the end of a small soi, so there’s no through traffic on the street or on the beach, and while the area has lots of little resorts, it’s very peaceful compared to most of Chaweng. The resort is 20 years old, has a funky feel, and the A-frame bungalows and thatched roofs add to an already old-fashioned look. The rooms are very basic, but are comfortable, have A/C and hot water and come with breakfast. While there are beachfront rooms, the garden rooms are just as close to the beach and are considerably cheaper. If you’re a Francophile, the resort is French owned and operated, so a perfect place to drink some Pernod and listen to some Piaf.
