Pia and I stayed at the Library for one week during mid August 2013. It is located right in the middle of Chaweng Beach on Koh Samui, Thailand. The food is great, cocktails fantastic and the general ambience of the place is laid back and restful. The early morning walks along the beach was a great way to start the day. The beach surf is gentle and the whole atmosphere not over crowded. Koh Samui offers some truly varied and great tasting places to dine out. Does not take much effort or time to tour the relatively small island, which does not distract from the real purpose or our short holiday there - to relax & unwind. I loved our daily lunch ritual in The Library's Drink Gallery. That is where those great cocktails were waiting for us, with nice sized tasty lunch meals.
- 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
