Superb. Exclusive. Felt like we were alone at the place. Outstanding service and ambience! A great retreat away from it all despite being in the centre of the strip of Chaweng!! Ultimate hotel style and comfort!!

Great hotel tucked away on Chaweng beach
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The grounds are lovely, and you feel very tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Rd. The rooms are very spacious and clean, we stayed in a studio room and enjoyed being on the upper floor amongst the trees. The beach is very clean, and we often had the beach section in front of the hotel to ourselves. We cannot fault this hotel at all. Perfect location, and wonderful service.

Love the location, the beach and the food. But price for room was too high and wasn’t worth it. Definitely I’ll stay again if prices will become more reasonable

The Library-Koh Samui
The Library is an amazing oasis of peace and privacy in a popular resort. You can experience the beach and other local attractions but retreat to the tranquility of the Library when you want some quiet relaxation. A truly unique hotel with many wonderful design features. The staff were all tremendous, and the standard of service and attention very high. There is a range of rooms and villas available, and we are already planning a return trip next year to try a Secret Chapter villa that we were shown that was truly, oone off and incredibly amazing.

Amazing design, great service, excellent location
Amazing design, beautiful scenery, great service, excellent location in Chaweng. Just as beautiful and luxurious as many of the other beautiful resorts on Samui but avoids the need to travel to find shops, food, massages as it is right in the Center. The wine bar is great. The night food market is very close if street food takes your fancy. Swimming pool and beach area are great. Food is delicious. The library of books and DVDs is a great accompaniment for those rainy tropical days on Samui. Staff (special mention to Por) are very courteous. The NYE party was also well coordinated and it was the place to be on the beach after midnight for live music and dancing. Will definitely stay here on future trips to Samui
