We had cocktails here, really good quality drinks and at "happy hour" prices even better! Lek, Am & all the staff were great, this hotel and the beach bar are well worth a visit, they have seats in the beach or just hangout at the bar! Happy hour is 5-7 and currently 2 for 1, loved it!!

Luxury is what it is all about here. Very different concept, basically townhouses within a garden a pool up front on the beach. Breakfast and food quality is first class. Location is what it is all about as you are walking distance for shopping, dining, drinking. No reason to even take a taxi once you are here. If you do... More

Stayed at The Library in July with my boyfriend. Everything is set up like a book. Our room, Page 19, was lovely. They provide free water, a free snack bar, bathroom amenities, free Wi-Fi and we even had an Apple Computer in our room. Everything is very clean and staff is lovely. Very nice atmosphere and staff seems to really... More

Stopped here for food and although it was expensive it was of an excellent standard and would and have recommended to others as a must if visiting Samui. It's in a great location but would recommend going to the beach restaurant as appose to the one at the front of the hotel just for the scenery and the famous red... More

The Library is a verry modern good hotel. The room are minimalistique but verry beautifull. The hotel is just on the beach and in the middle of the center of Chaweng. So you have beach and shopping facilities in one. The staff is verry friendly and the manager of the hotel is asking if everything is ok and saying you... More

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
