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

As many reviewers have already submitted ,the hotel and the rooms are beautiful designed any you can find many little details which make your stay more comfortable. We stayed over Christmas , unfortunately it was rainy season and no sun during the stay and due to the high tide the ocean was rough and the beach wet. But anyway we... More

This Hotel has a very nice minimal feel to it. it is perfect for drinks on the beach or for dinner. The dinner area is small so it is ideal to make reservations. It is more expensive than your usual thai food. the dishes are a bit more creative but if you are on a budget you can find amazing... More

We visited The Library after reading reviews about their Happy Hour at the beach bar. When we arrived we were super impressed. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Happy hour is buy 1 get 1 free from 5-7 every day. Their cocktails are the die for, the best we have had on the trip, also the outlook is so pretty,... More

Myself and my Wife recently spent 15 days staying at The Library on Chaweng Beach and the place is simply perfect. Starting with the General Manager and running right through the staff, it's in our opinion the perfect hotel, in the most amazing location. The style of the hotel is fantastic, and everything has been thought of and catered for.... More

This was the perfect place for us to unwind and just soak in some of the sun, sand and sea. The entire property is done up in a 'library' theme which is a welcome change and the red mosaic tile pool is absolutely gorgeous and begs to be photographed in as many ways possible! The hotel is very centrally located... More

I just returned home after 3 nights of pure bliss at The Library. I found this hotel through the reviews on Trip Advisor - and I'm so happy that I listened to them. The library is FANTASTIC! Sure, this hotel is situated in the best part of Chaweng Beach, the rooms are zen but with all the amenities you could... More

The Library is a unique hotel, great for short stays. It is right in the heart of Chaweng, surrounded by bustling nightlife, markets and the beach. Great restaurant with gorgeous food for all, but quite pricey. The Library is very chic and stylish, with its one of a kind red pool. Great photo op! Decoration and presentation of the hotel...

Cool hotel for weekend short holidays. Middle of Chaweng but still secluded. Great restaurant although a little pricey. Also great place for an afternoon drink after busy shopping on the high street. Nice people but a little slow service during peak hours.
