Known to many as the hotel with a red pool, The Library is a conceptually designed hotel that stands out from the crowd on Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui.
When you step into the hotel, you can tell there is great attention to detail, from using a pencil as a key chain to naming each room ‘‘Page’’ followed by a number. Mine was Page 2.
The hotel has a total of 26 unique accommodations, in three types: Exotic Suites, Smart Studios and The Bookmark, the most luxurious unit. The owner of the hotel is a Koh Samui local who turned his inherited land into a unique complex on his home island.
Once you are in the hotel, you will forget that you are staying at the busiest beach on Koh Samui. Its tranquility and greenery are among its best assets. With its modern architecture and a touch of fun in its interior decoration, the hotel is quiet yet far from boring.
The hotel is located on Chaweng, the most popular beach in Koh Samui. It is also surrounded by shops and restaurants, and not far from the nightlife—a perfect choice for different types of vacationers, from families to young couples. It is only 15 minutes from the airport to the hotel.
Fancy in-room facilities were offered, from an iMac computer with free Wi-Fi, to a plasma TV and a light above your bed that changes colour. There is a lounging building called The Library, where you can borrow books and DVDs. The gym is nice and clean. However, the highlight is its exotic red pool that has become the hotel’s trademark.
