Description: The LibraryLocated by the beach at Chaweng, on the east coast of Koh Samui, The Library is a luxury boutique resort, featuring avant-garde design based on a literary theme. Created for quiet contemplation and relaxing pursuits, The Library offers five-star accommodation, top-class cuisine and bespoke service in an elegant beachfront setting.
Featuring airy, minimalist and cutting-edge design, The Library is ideally placed for relaxing stays on this beautiful island. Its 6400 sq m plot was created without the use of earth-moving machinery, and features age-old trees, lovingly preserved and now part of the complex. All suites offer ocean views, and come with a bold colour scheme dominated by white, red, black and grey. The signature space of the resort, The Lib, is an immense alabaster-white space with an impressive collection of books, DVDs and music CDs, coupled with fabulous views of the ocean and the resort's spectacular Red Pool.
The Library is host to a number of unique dining venues, including The Page, a sophisticated beachfront restaurant serving authentic Thai and international fusion cuisine, while guests can enjoy an extensive range of cocktails at the Beach Bar, or informal, chic dining at the Drink Gallery, a select, stylish venue on Koh Samu.
Type of rooms: The LibrarySmart Studio:
The Smart Studio offers spectacular views of verdant gardens and a glimpse of the turquoise sea from a private terrace. With its semi-minimalist design of sleek uncluttered spaces accented by exotic art furnishings, it is the perfect choice for couples or honeymooners in search of artistic and intimate experiences. One master bedroom with living corner and balcony. Contemporary design furniture including a custom-made king-size bed. Luxurious bathtub by Bathroom Design and rain shower. Studio size 67 sq m.
The beautifully-appointed Exotic Suites are designed to offer quiet comfort, pure pleasure and deep relaxation. A wide uncluttered area is provided for the main bedroom, and an adjoining open-air patio invites the sweep of gentle trade winds through rustic wooden shutters. The exotic suite boasts a spacious Jacuzzi, and the king-size bed features an extensive pillow menu. Located on the ground floor, the Exotic Suite is an ideal choice for guests who prefer to stay close to the earth and require a suitable space to read and write during their stay. Suite size 76 sq m.
Featuring an extensive floor area, tailor-made in-room amenities and the inclusion of new active spaces, The Bookmark is one of the resort's largest and most luxurious units. A marked difference from the Smart Studio and Exotic Suite is the use of soft flowing fabrics, which create a tactile contrast to the sleek angular lines of the furnishings. This sensuous design is further enhanced with the careful attention to sensory stimuli. Touch is always emblematic; images and sounds, truly inspiring. The Bookmark exists as a unique, singular accommodation unit available at The Library.
