What guests are saying:
Wonderfully relaxing. A quiet haven in buzzing Chaweng. The staff were exceptional, they preempt what you might want/need before you even think of it yourself and the extra touches they put on things make it all the more special. We will return to this hotel soon.

The hotel is very stylish yet cozy. I enjoyed very much staying there . It is located in the center of the island so you can enjoy dining out and more. You feel like you want to read lots of books!!

Although a bit run down and some staff don't speak good English, everything else is just perfect! Extremely good service attitude, quiet(er) beach and pool area which is beautiful; Breakfast is ok, location is good, close to everything.

I would highly recommend this hotel for everyone. the staff are friendly and extremely helpful. The white interiors may need a fresh coat of paint as some areas of the bathroom are turning yellow due to age and what not.

stayed at the studio. the room was spacious with a nice balcony, and you can also enjoy those fancy neon lights in the room. i personally liked the studio over the suite, room size is about the same but you get a better deck chair with the suite.

Marvelous Stay”
Seamless services we received during our stay at one of their pool villas - we can't ask for more. At first, it is the property design strikes into your eyes and heart, it's hard not to fall for it. What made the stay truly enjoyable include seamless services, staff friendliness & helpfulness, facilities, food quality and location, anything you name it. The hotel is highly accessible to both Chaweng beach and popular shopping districts. Good restaurants are all within 10-15 mins walk (on top of "The Page"). I did not get tired of finding things to do during my 4-day stay... very lovely and totally unwind. Highly recommend staying at Villa if you have budget. Otherwise, the Smart Studio will be a great option.

You Will Want to Stay Forever”
It will exceed your expectations. We have been in Thailand six weeks and this was by far the best. Swim in a red pool of your dreams; eat breakfast in a bed on the beach; chill out in a pristine and modern room that changes colors according to your whim. If you appreciate perfect design, service, and style, go! Worth every scent.

average room with high price”
Actually, I didn't dislike anything here but just feel a bit less for everything. I have a suite room which is not quite difference from my friend's room who stay in a regular room. Food is ok but can be better for that price. What I like here is the lively beach (Don't expect privacy here in Chaweng Beach area). I'm quite enjoy laying down at the pool side facing the beach, grab a glass of wine and watch people. BTW, It's the best you can find in Chaweng Beach area.

Unique place in Chaweng, but...”
Layout, Beach, Pool
We stayed 2 nights in the Library and compare to some other 5-stars hotel, the Library is definitely a good choice. We like: - the hotel is open to the sea with space & trees, no hustle-bustle here! - the pool and beach area are the best in chaweng! - price is relatively high but much more valuable compare to some other overpriced hotels Could improve: - the room AC is real cold and face the bed head.. - the room had plenty of accessories including a computer... however this one was not up-to-date and couldn't browse most web-site.. (useful?) - the restaurant quality was not constant: we loved the breakfast and the 'Fondant au chocolate' however other dishes lacked attention (ex. hard garlic bread, not really fresh, under-cooked foie-gras).. which is NOT OK in view of the high price of the meal. - lastly some of the staffs were more looking for their tips than serving the customers. Which is bad because some other members where great! In particular at the restaurant a server gave use a quite rude before having its tips and then changed to a totally over-acted friendly attitude. Its a details but after a couple of time it really tend to ruin the atmosphere. Still if you want a relaxing and modern hotel with a touch of originality, we think the library is among the bests in chaweng.

Luxuries that money can buy”
The concept and design of the hotel, the service of its people, and the food and drinks
Everything about this hotel was good. I have nothing more to add except to say that they will make you feel special and if you're celebrating a special occasion, tell them! A surprise will await you. Sure to please that someone special. The red pool is very interesting. There's actually jazz music being played below when you swim. Movie library has an extensive selection of Bluray to rent! Last but not least, the rooms were just immaculate. Only thing to watch out is for mosquitos. They are attracted to anything black in colour. The room floors are all black. So if you happen to open your doors, be prepared to suffer the same night from those irritating mosquitos!

Design of the hotel, customer service and food quality
Excellent! Awesome resort, modern and innovative. Staff are terrific, nothing was too much trouble. We stayed 7 nights with our 3 year old who had a ball in the pools. Our booking included breakfast daily, delicious and varied menu rather than a buffet which meant it was all freshly made for us. Restaurant meals really good, best Wagyu steak we've had in ages.

A lot of green space, nice small boutique hotel which is not overcrowded with rooms. Clean and access to the beach and shops
The location was the best that you can get in Koh Samui with chaweng beach at the back and the koh samui hotspot where all the restaurants and shopping/massages are at the front of the entrance. Hotel was also very spacious with a lot of greeneries and very good taste in design.

Located in the middle of Chaweng beach in a beautifully intimate garden, this place is a private design oasis hidden between all the shops and general Thailand mess. Beautiful huge white box rooms, coupled with great staff and a fantastic restaurant.

Good location. Friendly staff. Nice wine selection.
High price for room and all services. Spa is not in the hotel.
Nice design but no privacy (except when all curtains are shut) as people stay in opposite rooms and who walk can see the room. Small window in bathroom opens to the stairs, which share the usage with the other room.
