      This is the ideal hotel - in the middle of everything yet very quiet and peaceful. Fantastic service. great Rooms, Great Beach, Good food. Only suggetion is that they could improve on the format of the breakfast Unlike most hoteld the they take the order for the ward BF, which is great but they invariable bring everything on the table together. We finally had to give 3 different order slips everyday.

      The Library has simply design and limited rooms available, but it definitely has the "wow" factor. The two bedroom suite was excellent. The swimming pool certainly was good for photography. The beach was clean and water was clear. The sands at the beach were fine and soft. Staffs at reception and throughout the hotel were friendly and helpful.

We are also delighted to learn that you cherished the soft and white sandy beach and the staff members are friendly and accommodating.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.
