A unique and chic setting with a dash of style. You will find numerous spots for great photos topped by the stunning red pool. They have dozens of white Keith Haring style mannequins or statues sprinkled throughout the hotel which adds to the artistic hip ambiance. We had some friends staying at the neighboring Amari and they paid us a... More

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

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 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
