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.

The first taste of The Library comes with the smile of the staff. Great staff with a big attention to the details that make a huge difference between a cool stay and an amazing memory. What else? "Ultra hype" very confortable rooms, a cool red pool, a not so good wifi connection, a good restaurant with 2 great ideas: breakfast... More

Great hotel. situated on crazy Chaweng Beach, it is still able to find peace and quiet but pushing itself slightly back from the beach itself. the Beach Bar is great for happy hour and the music provided gives a great vibe to the environment. The hotel itself has an open concept and so you never quite feel you are away... More

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
