Like they say "ones men's meat is another men's poison"... The Library is definitely my MEAT!
Located right in the centre of bustling Chaweng, but yet you would only get peace and serenity within The Library's premises. This is thanks to the super job by the security staff, whom always ensure outsiders are kept out at all times. From the lobby entrance to the rooms, you can sense this hotel will 100% tickle any arty vibes in you, coz its so amazingly well designed and everything is kept to a 'minimum'. I have never taken so much pictures of any hotels I visited until I stepped into The Library.. My eyes were constantly scanning for the thousands of little nice touches and details during my 2 nights stay. From the DnD signage in rooms, the extensive use of natural lightings to the red pool and the many white man figurines spread throughout the premises. Room was very sizable and comfy, and had everything I needed. Do not think the room concept will appeal to all, but I love it for the clean and minimalist look, and the amount of space is to die for...
Ambience and quality of F&B within its in-house restaurant and bar were surprisingly great, exceeding my expectations for a small size hotel like this. Spent many nights, including non stay nights, at the Drink Gallery, as I simply just loved sitting by the comfy couches by the ceiling-to-floor glass windows, watching the busy world zooming by while enjoying the creative cocktails or nice selection of wine.
The Library, like the Hansar brand, is an excellent example of a local owned, built and run hotel that has somehow got all its formulas right (and perfected), creating a very accommodating and pleasant experience for all its guests, as expected from the wonders of Thai hospitality.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Library is a stunning conceptual hotel built in a semi-minimalist architectural design, located at the heart of Chaweng Beach. Shaped by the hands of an island local who was inspired by books and a simple lifestyle philosophy, the property has now become an international icon of style and was recently recognized by Tripadvisor as the number one trendiest hotel in Thailand (2012).The Library offers its guests a total of 26 unique accommodations in the form of Exotic Suites located on the ground floor, Smart Studios on the upper levels, and a new ultra-luxurious unit called the Bookmark which is set to launch by October 2012. Interspersed with age-old trees and various works of art, The Library and its surroundings boast a balance of nature and culture. Interiors bathed in a minimalist palette are completed with modern facilities such as 42-inch plasma screen televisions, iPod touch, and iMAC computers with high-speed Internet connection. True to the belief that a perfect holiday equals an opportunity to enjoy one good novel, guests are invited to browse through the well-curated collection of books at The Lib, which gives The Library its distinctive name. An award-winning restaurant called The Page is also open for all-day dining, and the new Drink Gallery whips up an artistic blend of good food, warm vibes and the island’s most fantastic drinks. ... more less
