Stayed here in the Page 1 suite from June 8, 2015 to June 11, 2015. Upon entering the property, you get a large sense of exclusivity but with a sense of welcoming. For 650 baht, you can arrange for a private vehicle to pick you up. Since it was my first time on Samui, I chose this. When you walk... More

Minimalistic hotel with only 26 rooms. The red swimming pool is absolutely gorgeous. Breakfast served on air mattresses on the beach was amazing. The location is excellent as quiet and quaint within hotel, yet right in the middle of Chaweng. Short walk to Central Festival. Service was pleasant but not going out of their way type of accommodating. Really enjoyed... More

This was our second visit and we love the hotel as everything is fantastic. Rooms are designed well, food is outstanding and service and staff are great and friendly. However we arrived to find that the hotel is expanding with the construction noise being awful in particular since we did not get notified about the construction. This is a must... More

Went during what is considered low season (May), disregard the weather reports as it will show rain/thunderstorms every day but in reality there could be a short (less than 15-30min) rainstorm during random evenings. Small boutique type hotel but rooms are like individual bungalows spread out through the property giving you quiet and privacy. Rooms are minimalistic (see photos); also... More

We did not stay at the Library but we enjoyed a sensational dinner. First was drinks on the beach, lying back on bean bags looking out to the ocean and watching the moon rise. Then we moved to a table on the terrace and enjoyed a memorable meal If you are doing Koh Samui make sure you visit The Library

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
