I checked into The Library on Oct 1st, 2014 and that began one of the worse weeks of my life. I checked out less than 24 hours later even though I paid for four nights. My girlfriend and I arrived from Phuket. We expect bugs in a tropical country like Thailand but this hotel is overrun with mosquitos and even... More

This hotel is a magical and unique place. Service was fantastic and personal. The hotel's structure is clean and simple, and great with kids as everything is close. The library of movies is such an original and great idea and the red pool- that's another story... Great location and very nice atmosphere. Highly recommended

We didnt stay at the hotel, however we did frequent the bar most evenings during our 4 nights in Chewang. This was definately the nicest place for fabulous cocktails! The cocktail menu is extensive and some of them are very innovative! The expresso hazelnut martini was delicious! We also ate here for lunch, we had the massaman curry and rice,... More

The red pool.was beautiful. Breakfast on the beach was amazing and service was great. They offered free rides to restaurants. Amazing... More

The experience at The Library was nothing else but SUPERB. We've been to Koh Samui plenty no of times and have always crossed the hotel only to wish and want to stay there. Well, this time we did stay there and wondered why weren't we there earlier? From the staff to the room, the pool, the food, the style, feel,... More

The library is an ultra-luxurious property located in the heart of Chaweng beach. The rooms are beautiful with great amenities. The unique red pool ofcourse is the main attraction. The cocktails they serve are one of the best I have ever had. Service needs improvement, for the kind of money we are paying. Overall, a superb place to stay if... More

The theme of the hotel really is brilliant and the rooms were so spacious, luxurious and very very cool. Excellent location in the heart of chaweng and the beach is beautiful! As was the lovely red pool. However for the price you're paying I feel the staff could have been more accommodating. They seemed keen to remind us that things... More

This hotel is one of the best hotel I have every stayed at. I stayed twice, one time on the first floor and one time on the ground floor. Both floors are good. The first floor has a balcony with sunbeds and the groundfloor has a sort of a room you can turn into an indoor or an outdoor room.... More

We had a wonderful trip in Thailand and one of the spots was Samui. We chose The Library because had a wish for intimate cosy minimalist-style honeymoon. Hotel is really overpriced, guys! Even though I previously contacted the hotel directly by email, and they offered me their "best rate". Rooms really need renovation and look a bit depressive sometimes. Strange... More

We decided to stay on a different part if the island as we felt chaweng is really too crowded for us but we were curious to see this hotel. Amazing people and service! We tried drinks on a few nights and the restaurant one night, always great! Great contemporary style!
