Wish we could have spend a few nights here, however the hotel was fully booked (no surprise as its a wonderful property, understanding the concept of operating under five stars). So we passed by on a nice sunny evening for dinner and drinks. Marvelous, exactly as runout circulate on the Internet the cocktails here are very good, dinner likewise however... More

Went there twice, it s a very nice place, quiet (despite the activity in Chaweng). The suite are well decorated, in a mix of pure and thai style. The restaurant is awesome and the service very good. It s the perfect destination for someone who wants to chill out in a beautiful island.

The first taste of The Library comes with the smile of the staff. Great staff with a big attention to the details that make a huge difference between a cool stay and an amazing memory. What else? "Ultra hype" very confortable rooms, a cool red pool, a not so good wifi connection, a good restaurant with 2 great ideas: breakfast... More

Great hotel. situated on crazy Chaweng Beach, it is still able to find peace and quiet but pushing itself slightly back from the beach itself. the Beach Bar is great for happy hour and the music provided gives a great vibe to the environment. The hotel itself has an open concept and so you never quite feel you are away... More

The waiting staff are top notch. Well done the coach. Attentive to a fault without the intrusiveness found elsewhere. My wife says its the best restaurant in Changweng. A good wine list. You do pay for the cocktails but where else will you get 5 star like this. Food wonderful. I had the wonton soup followed by lamb massaman curry.... More

The Library is a stylish resort designed with a minimalist concept in Chaweng beach. We stayed for four nights with my family and our stay was very pleasant. The place is just perfect. The rooms are large and very spacious. Minimalist design with beds, chairs and low tables are comfortable, relaxed and serene. The facilities are simple but sophisticated. A... More

We were having some drinks at the bar on the beach on beanbags with a fancy dj and lighting in front of us. Very nice to see the sunset, music was nice and calm, drinks very good. Also came in happy hour and got 2 for 1. Definetely recommended!

Oh my god! We came here and came back again and again and again! Order anything which is their 'specialty' and you won't be disappointed! And the cocktails, oh the cocktails! Heaven in a glass! Absolutely loved it here! Would definitely come back and would consider staying here as well next time. It's nicely situated.

An amazing decorative hotel, concept and of course - red pool. Every single bit of the room was thought of to make your stay as comfortable and luxurious as humanly possible. They have an amazing collection of books and movies. The location is great - right across Chaweng main road. The Price is high, but totally worth the romantic, new... More
