Very different hotel experience to your normal hotel, however probably the best property on Chaweng. Attentive service, close to all the action in the night bazaar and about a 10 minute beach walk to Ark Bar (beach nightclub/bar). We had a couple of cool beach attendants one called 'Oh' and another I do not recall his name! Very friendly chaps!!!
The rooms are very modern, sleep and minimal, just the way I like it. All the mod cons you want, WiFi, Desktop Apple computer, Bose sound system, LED TV, huge shower. We really enjoyed the experience. The highlight is breakfast by the beach which is a must if you are staying at the property, I assume it is included for everyone like it was for us. The beach although there is a lot of foot traffic and people trying to sell stuff to you, they are not too intrusive. Loved every minute and would recommend to everyone if staying on Koh Samui!!

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
