Though we were very unlucky with the weather, 1 sunny day and 3 days with clouds, rain and so on, we enjoyed the Library. Our room, page 21, was superb, the red pool amazing, the location perfect and the staff very helpfull.

We stopped in for pre-lunch drinks during our drive around the island. They had ample parking for 2 cars and multiple scooter. The walk through the complex is impressive with the rooms referred to as pages. Arriving at the bar, we were pleasantly surprised by the red pool, which is completed covered by red tiles. Drinks menu is very extensive,... More

We didn't stay here, but went for sundowners and dinner. The whole experience was very pleasant and I can't fault the staff or the setting, I just felt the food lacked a lil bit in flavour, but that is maybe cause I was expecting a gastronomic experience and instead got fine dining. The food was delicious and European, so yes... More

I have stayed at the hotel 3 times now and I must say just when you think it can't get any better it does! The hotel is conveniently located on Chaweng beach but still manages to feel like a calm sanctuary. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and the rooms are immaculate and stylish. The pool area is every... More

The contemporary stylish design is just gorgeous. Stepping off the hustle of chewang into this location was a welcome surprise. We went here for a hens night, it was hands down the best choice for such an occasion and suited our group perfectly because we didn't want anything too tacky. It was stylish, comfortable and relaxing. We had a private... More

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.
