We decided to stay on a different part if the island as we felt chaweng is really too crowded for us but we were curious to see this hotel. Amazing people and service! We tried drinks on a few nights and the restaurant one night, always great! Great contemporary style!

The Library is like an oasis in the Bophut area. Entering the resort you can feel the quietness and the feeling of vacation. The red swimming pool becomes the icon of this resort.

The menu is an easy to read but plentiful size, with plenty to offer everyone. Drinks are plentiful and you can choose from beer, wine, cocktails and spirits. Pleasant music playing throughout our...

We'd summarise by saying this place is too much pomp and "style" over comfort and substance. It's OK but not worth the money at all. We actually left after the first night even though we'd already paid for 3...we just didn't like it at all, and it felt depressing, We were sorry to lose the money but didn't want to...

The Library took my breath away with its attention to details. The whole vicinty is picture worthy and the theme is seamless as a boutique hotel. The welcome package is awesome in presentation and I digged the threading of the envelopes! The only thing to watch out for is the platform on which the bed is on especially if you...

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
