With an enchanting beachfront location and a minimalist design, The Library on Chaweng Beach is the perfect place to curl up with a good book. True to its name, this unique conceptual hotel features an expansive library of over 1,400 books available for guests to borrow. This wealth of literature is complimented by the clean lines and bold design choices of its 46 luxury pool villas, suites and studios, each furnished with a reassuring assortment of premium amenities and entertainment technology. Furthermore, a world-renowned red swimming pool provides stark contrast to the alabaster-white buildings of the property. But the enduring respect for the surrounding landscape is unequivocal. From The Page restaurant holding fort on the beachfront, to the Drink Gallery and Tapas Bar fronting the street, The Library seals the chasm between nature and modern life.

Att A wrote a review Apr 2021
Bangkok, Thailand21 contributions2 helpful votes
I must admit that the resort exceeded many of my expectations when it came to service, ambience, rooms, and facilities. The secret pool villa was an exceptional experience all the way from checking in to checking out, and everything in between. I would have given this a 5-star review but unfortunately there were 2 minor issues that I had. One was the amount of mosquitos in the room which didn’t seem to go away even after cleaning. Secondly, I was not able to reach the villa host, villa manager, general manager , or evening housekeeping when I needed something. I had to call room service who then had to take my request to reception so that it could be taken care of. All in all, if not for these minor inconveniences, the stay was incredible and we are looking to return as soon as we can. I would suggest booking the beachside breakfast table as soon as you make your bookings !

I had a great experience when stayed at the Library, staffs were kind and helpful, and the amenities were great. The secret pool villa was wonderful, comfy, clean, and perfect to stay. Foods are quality and tasty. You can walk along a nice beach in front of hotel and relax in a long pool area, so refreshing. Thinking about plan to back here in a next summer.

We enjoyed our stay in the Bookmark suite. Minimalist in design, and bold on colors yet feeling warm and cosy. The room is abundantly kitted with oversized bed, black granite jacuzzi, Apple TV and more. Staff and service are all commendable. Excellent restaurant and room service.
