This is our third visit to this design orientated hotel in the last 10 years, so as couple we must enjoy something about it to keep coming back when we are in Koh Samui. However I must say i am very glad my wife only booked one night this time, it is starting to look a little tired. But the...

Went for dinner at The Library hotel - great service and lovely food. The hotel is right on chaweng beach so eating on the terrace in the evening is wonderful. Rather crowded during the day but lovely place in the evenings.

Lovely time at their restaurant " The Page" watching sunset and enjoying their live music. Best time ever in Chaweng Beach! Snacks and Cocktails options are great and good service. Bean bags and tables gives it a calm and cool ambience to hang out by the beach.

Tucked back from the street is this architectural gem. The villas are tastefully done with lots of space inside. The technology is excellent. But it's the pool, bar, restaurant area that sets it apart. Tasteful luxury.

Walked along the beach and came across this really cool looking place. Happy hour lychee cocktail was most refreshing! Beach cushions were comfortable as were the deck beds. I'd be keen to go back to try out the food menu.

The Library is for us the best Hotel at Koh Samui , we been there the second time and for sure we will come again.

The Library looks like nothing from the bustling ugliness that is Chewang Road but venture through the massive dull concrete entrance and you're in a completely different world. There is a long walkway to the blood red swimming pool between the white rooms of the hotel. Littered throughout are fun white statues and the architecture is stunning. At the end...

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, an ultra-luxurious unit called the Bookmark and an expansive 2-Bedroom Suite. 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. 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 Drink Gallery whips up an artistic blend of good food, warm vibes and the island's most fantastic drinks. ... more   less
