The waiting staff are top notch. Well done the coach. Attentive to a fault without the intrusiveness found elsewhere. My wife says its the best restaurant in Changweng. A good wine list. You do pay for the cocktails but where else will you get 5 star like this. Food wonderful. I had the wonton soup followed by lamb massaman curry.... More

The Library is a stylish resort designed with a minimalist concept in Chaweng beach. We stayed for four nights with my family and our stay was very pleasant. The place is just perfect. The rooms are large and very spacious. Minimalist design with beds, chairs and low tables are comfortable, relaxed and serene. The facilities are simple but sophisticated. A... More

We were having some drinks at the bar on the beach on beanbags with a fancy dj and lighting in front of us. Very nice to see the sunset, music was nice and calm, drinks very good. Also came in happy hour and got 2 for 1. Definetely recommended!

Oh my god! We came here and came back again and again and again! Order anything which is their 'specialty' and you won't be disappointed! And the cocktails, oh the cocktails! Heaven in a glass! Absolutely loved it here! Would definitely come back and would consider staying here as well next time. It's nicely situated.

An amazing decorative hotel, concept and of course - red pool. Every single bit of the room was thought of to make your stay as comfortable and luxurious as humanly possible. They have an amazing collection of books and movies. The location is great - right across Chaweng main road. The Price is high, but totally worth the romantic, new... More

We celebrated our anniversary with a meal at the restaurant. The food was outstanding and the modular design and lighting of the restaurant and resort unique. I had the soft crab with yellow curry paste and my wife had prawns and scallops. Both dishes were excellent. Make sure you pay a visit to the bathrooms!

We heard so many great things about the library so decided to book in dinner one night. There was 2 sessions of booking they accept and we wanted a later one as travelling from Taling Ngam, 9pm however was a little too late! No the place wasn't busy and yet they had more than 3 staff on the floor. Troubled... More

We stayed six nights and loved it. The location is great: you can dip into the tourist craziness of the main road at the front door; swim in the ocean; or stay cocooned by the pool or in your spacious, serene room. The rooms are big and comfortable, if you don't mind low beds and a minimalist sense of style... More
