Against the seductive backdrop of Koh Samui’s Chaweng Beach, The Library reads like an elegant monograph – a beachfront hotel that invites one to sit with a book in quiet contemplation while also weaving its own story of natural beauty and unmatched luxury. With just 46 studios, suites and pool villas spread over 12,800 square meters of land, this minimalist resort provides ample space to read, roam, and reflect.

The Exotic Suites are on ground Floor, the Studios on First floor, so should be no Problem (so each exotic Suite hast a Studio above). But i‘d rather send a request by E-Mail (via the Homepage) then posting on facebook.

Dear Victoria5, First of all, we would like to apologize for a delayed response to your specific question regarding a refurbishment work of our beachside restaurant " The Page" since we have just received the notification of your post. With your arrival date on July 18, 2015, we anticipate that the noise disturbance will be decreased during that time, and in the mean time the breakfast on the beach can be arranged with prior reservation. Kindly note that we have placed the improvement work of The Page under " What's up" section of our website. Please do let us know if you may require any additional information pertaining to the improvement work. Look forward to welcoming you to The Library soon Sincerely Yours, The Management

i don't exactly know. but it is one of those properties where it extends from the main road to the beach. the units are quite seperate from each other. think of a compound with several townhouses. it is set back enough from the beach, so it is quiet enough. chewang beach is a zoo and can be noisy and very crowded
