Great stay @ design hotel in Chaweng beach ”

design of the room, pool, beach cosy atmosphere for young couples & singles gym by the sea very nice restaurant Imac in the room
- Thai salespeople on the beach are coming too close from the hotel's clients - a sort of line should be set up to prevent clients to be bothered

We stayed 7 days at the Library hotel that we found by chance when walking along chaweng road. Our stay was great. First and foremost, the location is ideal for the greatest beach and sand, despite the noise and agitation of chaweng beach. The major thing is that the hotel manages to create a cosy and peaceful atmosphere in the hotel within the very lively atmosphere of chaweng beach - so you are in the heart of what is going on without to live with the noise of it. Then the design is really nice, very simple, white in the room, with a very cool red pool, and confortable bean bag to lie on around the pool. The staff is also very friendly, especially at the restaurant and around the pool, smiling and welcoming most of the time, and doind their utmost to please you (especially around the pool). also, the restaurant (the page) is one of the best on ko samui, with exceptional Thai and international food. Lastly, the large choice of DVDs and Books at the library is bringing additional value to spend nice holidays. All in all, we had a great time and were very happy to have found this hotel which is, according to us, one of the best 5 star on the island. Mostly designed for Young couples & singles

Best Breakfast on the beach experience I ever had!”

Superb breakfast on the beach, Very Comfortable bed and selection of pillows available and "Best of both worlds" 5* hotel Location (right on the beach and just along the shopping streets

I was there with my hubby for my 31st Birthday Celebration and have decided to book the Library hotel after reading the good reviews. We were greeted by very friendly staff at the reception and were served with a nice refreshing glass of lime juice and orange sorbet. The staff were very helpful and brought our lugguages to our room and showed us around our Suite. The daily breakfast on the beach was definitely the hightlight of our trip. You get to sit on your Private big "bed" with pillows at the beach to have your breakfast. Just remember to book your breakfast on the beach the day before. You get to choose from a wide variety from the breakfast menu and there were no additional charges if you order Ice Blended Mocha/Cappuccino. The breakfast on the beach was only made exclusive for the hotel guests as I saw some beach passerbys who approached the breakfast staff to enquire about the breakfast and they were kindly turned away. The beach would have been perfect if there were not too many jet skis on the beach hotels beside the Library. They were having sewage maintenance for the 2 days we were there. Whenever we passed by that area, you could smell the unpleasant smells from the sewage. The hotel overall appeared smaller than I would have imagined from the photos. Overall, we had a Fantastic The Library experience. Thumbs up for the memorable breakfast experience and great location! Tip: There is this "Must-Go" restaurant called Ninja Crepes. It sells very good authentic Thai food at very afforable price. Opens from 12pm - 11pm. If you are thinking of going there for dinner, you have to go early. Otherwise, you will see a long queue. (When you walk out of The Library, turn left and walk all the way straight for about 10mins. You will see it on the right side of the shopping streets.

Serene Stylish & Pop cubic space in Chaweng Beach”

Location : East side of the hotel space is facing to beautiful white sand and water of Chaweng Beach. Walking west through out long quiet entrance path sheltered by high bamboo wall brings you in the middle of lively Chanweng street. Space : 10 WHITE cubic villas are sitting spaciously on north and south side of GREEN grassed square site. Rustic BROWN wood walking path in center of green garden ends up iconic RED big pool, over the pool has wood-deck area, then goes down to WHITE sand beach with BLUE ocean. Design : Smart, simple, zen-ish(I hate to use this word, anyway)design with a little "provocative" but “clever" functions. All furniture must be custom designed with unity and decorum all through from your room to outside shared space. Comfortable. Service : Staffs are rather shy than "business"-friendly, but gives you decent service with cute smile when you ask. Food : Good! Nothing shocking nor silly challenge. You’ve never gets bored eating every day their menu West page and East page at restaurant "PAGE" while your whole stay. If you want delicious Thai cuisine less spicy, try East page here. Don't miss Strawberry Caiperovska! Stunning!
Guests : European european and european ... well ... nothing bad about it ... just bored to be surrounded by alphabetical looks ... no offense

you must feel "can i buy one cube here even i can not afford it?" this boutique hotel makes you feel, more like you are living than staying. despite it located center of lively chaweng, once you walk into this hotel property, you feel you are in a separate cubic space which composed of green white blue with a little accent of brown and red. staff will introduce you into one of the white cube which is your villa. cube “sweet” comes with very nice private garden room with huge vertical wood blind which pisses you don't have any local friends to invite. wall mounted squared bed light change color pale blue-green-pink must make your girlfriend "ready" even it's not your intention. the library icon "statue of reading book" sits in a spot to spot in public area tells you relax and do nothing. as it is a unique and stylish hotel in ko samui, you could face some c-e-l-e-b-l-i-t-y events in the hotel space which gives your stay a little accent. considering quality time i got there, price is not a problem at all. i believe this is one of the best stay in ko-samui. highly recommend.

Cool and unique hotel thats hidden away”

Location, Grounds and Ambience

this hotel is hidden gem right in the hustle and bustle of chaweng beach in koh samui. with sprawling lawns and big trees surrounding a wooden decking walkway, it creates a real escape and lets you forget that your in downtown chaweng. the hotel is based around the idea of a book, with rooms being called pages, eg our room was page 21, and they are two story villas with the downstairs area comprising the suite and the upstairs comprising the studio (2 separate rooms). we booked the studio, which was very chic and simple. the technology in the room was some of the best ive seen and the outside reading area was a great place to relax and get out of the direct heat of the sun. the restaurant is also great with a good mix of western and thai dishes.

Like Living in the Pages of Architectural Digest”

Design, Location, Attention to Detail

The Library is easily the best hotel that I have ever stayed in. If you are a lover of sleek, zen minimalist architecture and design - then you are likely to love this hotel as much as we did. Everything about the architecture and design was perfect - down to the smallest typographical detail. The staff were excellent and the location of the hotel was also perfect being situated right in the centre of Chaweng. The white sands and blue sea is right in front of you, with the main nightlife of the town right behind you. Despite being right in the centre of town, the place was as quiet as a ... Library. For a romantic getaway for couples, The Library is a hotel that is hard to beat. The place is probably not suitable for families though. The minimalist exterior of the rooms contain a lot of sharp edges and you need to watch your step with the beds raised on dark lacquered ledges!

Wow Hotel !!!”

Peaceful haven in crazy Chaweng

This hotel is the best compromise one would find when looking for a luxurious holiday retreat in Koh Samui. The Library has it all. Peaceful, luxury, fun, excellent quality and variety of food, awesome location. Hotel staff is present everywhere, yet you do not feel them waiting to serve you like one can sometimes see in other hotels in asia. i would definately go again on holidays in Koh Samui at The Library !!

the lirary was a wonderful spot to escape from the busy streets and beaches of koh samui, whilst being right amongst the action. the rooms are very modern, and have all of the comforts you could possibly need, including a mac in everyroom and free internet. the facilities are great - the red pool is amazing, and the beachfront location is beautiful. the staff at the library very skillfully make you feel like you're on a quiet tropical island, even though you're right in the middle of the most busy spot on koh samui. the staff deserve a special mention - so friendly, so efficient and responsive to every need (before you even know you need it) yet not intrusive at all.

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.

lovely hotel, wonderfull staff”

hotel is perfect

we spent 4 nights and room was wonderfull, also the staff, hotel very clean, staff very helpfull, breaksfast service wonderfull, you feel in a real 5 stars hotel, everything perfect except the proximity to bars and discos, we couldn,t sleep well at night because you hear the music that comes from outside, i wanted to hear the see and i only hear disco music, and because of this i change the hotel to another part of koh samui (from chaweng to bo phut).

What and amazing experience!”

Location; Style and comfort of all amenities; Lavish!

By far one of the best hotels in Chaweng! We stayed only 2 nights here - wish we could have stayed more however had already booked somewhere else. We arrived to a welcome of fresh drink and towel at checkin and from there it only got better! We enjoyed our stay so much - everything was so great. The rooms had a coffee maker and everything else you could possibly think of. The beds were so comfortable and the bathrooms were so stylish! We had a suite so had the outdoor living area and the provision of snacks was great as it meant we literally didn't need to leave the hotel to get anything. The breakfast was so nice and the view was amazing from the beautiful setting. The pool is so nice to swim in and the staff always friendly and would set you up with a sunbed wherever you wanted it. The book and DVD library is amazing and with a DVD player and TV in the rooms, as well as a computer, you had everything you wanted. The gym is small, but has everything you need and with a view of the sea and pool! What a way to train! I loved this hotel and could not have asked for anything more.

Fantastic hotel and lovely service!”

Rooms are huge and spacious, pool is lovely and beach is wonderful!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Library. From the minute we checked in, the hotel staff made us feel welcome. The rooms were massive and we loved that we had our own Apple Computer! The lighting in the room was very relaxing and the hotel staff made our stay very comfortable. The food at the hotel was delicious and we got to eat some great Thai cuisine. The Library was nice and quiet and if we wanted a little more noise, Chaweng beach and the main road were only a few steps away so we had the best of both worlds!

Great designer hotel, library theme throughout ”

Great Food. Nice and interesting red pool. Awesome location, yet it is quite inside property. Nice theme, using the theme of the library throughout (eg. rooms are named in pages, for example I stayed in "Page 7")
Too much form over function. Shower floods, the whole toilet gets wet after a long shower.

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous, the design is amazing and the hotel is supposedly just opened not long ago. The location is great, walking out is right in the center of the action in Chaweng beach, but inside the hotel property you can still find some tranquility. The food is amazing at their restaurant called "The Page", you must try their tasting menu. Lastly the only thing I must say negative about this hotel is its emphasis of form over function. The room is nice looking but the minimize design got me begging for more. For example, the shower is missing blinds and after a long shower the whole toilet is flooded. Also the key looks cool with the key-chain being a pencil, I guess it is following the library theme, but it is impossible to fit in anyone's pocket.

Stylish spot in the middle of beach # 1”

excellent ambient, helpful staff and Library room with great art books and DVD

We have stayed 6 days in The Library and found this experience very attractive to us . Of course , if you want to go budget - that is not place for you , but if you want to stay fancy and very convenient - then The Library is a must . We have friends , that live on island for last 6 days , so when we were telling that we stay in The Library , they return remark , that this is " fashionable place and you will like it !" What was very true ! Breakfast are the best ,if you book breakfast on the beach between 7 and 8 am , you may enjoy easy sun , vert few people and excellent food with fresh squeezed juices , what is rather rare in Samui . We have organized a little party for a few dedicated friends in our studio and terrace attached to room one evening. That was fabulous !!

The Library-Laidback Luxury Samui”

- secluded resort in the middle of busy noisy samui: calm and relaxe"d feel - beautiful modern architecture - friendly yet non invasive staff - beautiful decor int he bed rooms - amazing simple bathrooms - library concept: free books, Dvds; miusic and 24h internet in the room on imac
- food is okay but over priced considering the quality and taste of the products - the SPA is okay but nothing to write home about.

We could have stayed weeks at the Library. The rooms are modern and simple, yet sophisticated and extrememly comfortable. The lines are pure, the furniture is made out of beautiful material and the king size bed is a dream to sleep in. The bathroom was equipped with a jacuzzi tub and walk in Italian shower. The room itself had 24h internet access on imac as well as a flat screen TV with DVD player. IDeal since the whole concept of the hotel is based on being able to borrow movies, books and CDs from the library. The staff was extremely helpful yet non invasive and made our stay a very relaxing and laid back experience. The red pool and the beach front bar are great places to relax. The atmosphere of the whole hotel makes you forget you're in busy touristy samui. A real haven.

I love this hotel!”

Comfortable bed, good location, big room, and good design look and feeling.
None.

I really love its unique design throughout the hotel, and The Library gave me a very different experience for staying in a hotel. Because staying in The Library made me feel like home, and it inspired me for wanting to have my future home design and feel like this. I also love its location, because it has its own beach area, and is located on the main busy street at Chaweng Beach, very convenient for doing some shopping and finding a good restaurant around the area.

A truly unique experience”

Amazing design and concept, super clean and very sweet staff. Loved its uniqueness and ambiance. Rooms are huge and come with desktop Mac and own balcony. Wireless Internet is free. Location is excellent - right in the middle of the beach and town. big sandbags around the pool and on the beach make it fun and comfortable to hang out and relax.
don't really have any Cons -- the gym is small, but hardly anybody uses it, so I did not have a problem. Food is okay but not great.

My stay at The Library was a dream come true. The rooms are huge and the deco and design are mind blowing. The whole compound is spotless clean and very impressive. Staying at the Library is not cheap, but it is worth the money because you have a very special experience, truly unique. And because you really enjoy spending time in the room or on the balcony, or on the sandbags on the beach. It is a small hotel, only 26 rooms, so it never feels crowded. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves modern designs and is looking for something other than the typical beach resort atmosphere. You will never forget The Library after spending time there. And the staff are very accommodating and sweet.

Great Hotel”

nice rooms, good location, great food.

out of the craziness in Chaweng the Library provides a getaway from the noise and gives you a good place to relax while you are steps away from the most central location in Samui. The room was really nice, you get your own iMac, very nice bed, great balcony... the pool is ok, the Gym is nice, but the food in the restaurant is amazing.
