Kupu Kupu Phangan in Koh Phangan, Thailand

Borrowing its name from the phrase meaning "sand bar", the island of Ko Pha Ngan was once the favored retreat of Thai royalty. The smaller sister island to Koh Samui, Ko Pha Ngan is the ideal location for the isolated, romantic retreat of Kupu Kupu Phangan, Thailand's premier all-villa sanctuary on the sea. Opening December 1, 2012, Kupu Kupu Phangan takes the concept of an island holiday to new levels of comfort, style, and beauty. The hotel's 20 villas are uniquely designed to unite traditional Thai artistry with modern amenities and conveniences, culminating in an unforgettable vacation experience. Kupu Kupu Phangan's three categories of living accommodations includes: the charming wooden Seaview Pool Villa, the spacious Beachfront Pool Villa, and the tropically inspired Deluxe Beachfront Pool Villa. Each room is visually stunning with preferred amenities that help create a relaxed atmosphere, including a spa style bathroom, personal safe, satellite TV, and mini bar.

Despite its secluded, dreamy location, Kupu Kupu Phangan incorporates many exciting features of a five-star resort, like an on-site restaurant and spa. La Plague Restaurant serves up delicious regional cuisine, with bold flavors supplemented by fresh local seafood and ingredients indigenous to the land. The comfortable spa space is comprised of two double treatment rooms facing the hotel's infinity pool, perfect for a relaxing couple's massage, or any of the other therapies available on the spa's comprehensive menu of treatments. Guests may spend a day getting lost on the extensive stretches of beach surrounding the hotel, or take to the water for a fun-filled day at sea. No matter what your pleasure, Kupu Kupu Phangan has you covered. Come discover all the colorful nuances of a space aptly named for nature's most beautiful, exotic creature--the butterfly-- at Kupu Kupu Phangan.

One of the best hotel I experienced in my life. The scenery is stunning and the Villa with private pool is spacious with a nice Balinese decoration. I chose a Villa with Sea View and I was also close to the main pool. The service was great with a special mention for housekeeping, the room was always very clean! Breakfast was international and with enough choice for adults & kids. We were lucky enough to experience the Spa l'Occitane and the massage was amazing! Can not recomment more this little paradise.

We stayed there for our holidays and we had a great time ! We booked a villa right on the beach (v.46) with private pool and I believe that it’s one of the best category ! Breakfast is good with lot of choices also the restaurant! Price is a little bit higher but you get what you paid for..nice presentation, good quality and very tasty. Hotel is about 5 min from the center Thong Sala and the best way to go around is to rent a motorbike. Staff is very friendly and helpful. You can contact reception to rent motorbike, book tour/restaurants, they are willing to help you for any inquiries. Of course the hotel doesn’t look like a brand new one because the villas are made of wood but I feel that they do their best to make it charming and nice. Overall it was a very good experience and I would go back there for sure. Thanks again to all the team of Kupu Kupu who made our holidays unforgettable.

We stayed here because it was the most affordable place to stay during the Full Moon Party. The driver picked us up from the pier and as soon as we arrived, we were greeted with a refreshing glass of juice with an ice-cold towel to cool our necks as it was a hot and humid day. Our room wasn't ready so we waited at my friend and her husband's room. They booked the deluxe beachfront pool villa and when we walked in, I punched myself for not booking the same room. They were at villa 12 and it was the second to last villa to the beach, which in my opinion was the best as you could have a full view of the beach. We ordered room service which was pretty expensive (expensive as in thai expensive since it's normal prices back in the US/UK). The food was okay considering the price range. We needed to go to 7Eleven to pick up some beers and refreshments so we asked the hotel staff and they took us with no charge! We spent the rest of the afternoon lounging in the pool and beach area until our room was ready. My husband and I stayed at the Sea View Suite, villa 1. I mean, compared to the beachfront pool villa there was no comparison. However, room was clean and really big. Our balcony overlooked right in front of the pool so view was pretty damn amazing. The sunset....BREATHTAKING!! I've been to Thailand twice and nothing beats the sunset like Koh Phangan. Being able to take in the vastness of the sky at my balcony just made this resort heavenly. They did a pregaming party before the Full Moon Party until 7PM. It was 850 baht for a bucket, accessory, and glow in the dark makeup. We didn't take that offer as we took a nap and had already bought booze to pregame. Trip to the Full Moon Party took about 30 minutes. Breakfast was delicious! Service is superb! This was by far our favorite resort of our trip in Thailand. My girlfriend and I still talk about how sick this resort is!

Very nice and stylish Resort, the Villas are great, although the Pool Areas of the Villas are a bit outdated and need some Renovation (Floor, Mattress of the Sunbeds). All of the Villa´s Doors in our Neighborhood were squeaking - we solved that with a Dash of Sun Oil :-) in our Villa (46). We were disappointed by the Breakfast, to be honest. You have everything you need, right, but on a very low level in terms of Quality. No fresh Fruit Juices (on a Tropical Island) and every day the same cheap Ham and Cheese. We have seen that much better in other Resorts within South East Asia in this Price Range. We did not have Dinner in the Restaurant, as we prefer to eat with the Locals. The SPA is very good, one of the best Massages we ever had. In General, the Staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the Housekeeping. We were picked up and dropped of on the Thong Sala Pier free of charge, which was a nice gesture.We can recommend this Resort to everybody seeking for an relaxed Atmosphere.

A beautiful get away right on the beach, very friendly staff, very good food! A paradise on earth. Our granddaughter (3 years) also enjoyed it a lot! We chose the beach villa with a small pool right at the beach. Simply fantastic :-)
