We celebrated our anniversary with a meal at the restaurant. The food was outstanding and the modular design and lighting of the restaurant and resort unique. I had the soft crab with yellow curry paste and my wife had prawns and scallops. Both dishes were excellent. Make sure you pay a visit to the bathrooms!

We heard so many great things about the library so decided to book in dinner one night. There was 2 sessions of booking they accept and we wanted a later one as travelling from Taling Ngam, 9pm however was a little too late! No the place wasn't busy and yet they had more than 3 staff on the floor. Troubled... More

We stayed six nights and loved it. The location is great: you can dip into the tourist craziness of the main road at the front door; swim in the ocean; or stay cocooned by the pool or in your spacious, serene room. The rooms are big and comfortable, if you don't mind low beds and a minimalist sense of style... More

This Hotel has a very nice minimal feel to it. it is perfect for drinks on the beach or for dinner. The dinner area is small so it is ideal to make reservations. It is more expensive than your usual thai food. the dishes are a bit more creative but if you are on a budget you can find amazing... More

Myself and my Wife recently spent 15 days staying at The Library on Chaweng Beach and the place is simply perfect. Starting with the General Manager and running right through the staff, it's in our opinion the perfect hotel, in the most amazing location. The style of the hotel is fantastic, and everything has been thought of and catered for.... More

This was the perfect place for us to unwind and just soak in some of the sun, sand and sea. The entire property is done up in a 'library' theme which is a welcome change and the red mosaic tile pool is absolutely gorgeous and begs to be photographed in as many ways possible! The hotel is very centrally located... More

I just returned home after 3 nights of pure bliss at The Library. I found this hotel through the reviews on Trip Advisor - and I'm so happy that I listened to them. The library is FANTASTIC! Sure, this hotel is situated in the best part of Chaweng Beach, the rooms are zen but with all the amenities you could... More
