The Library is a stunning conceptual hotel created under a semi-minimalist architectural style and shaped by the hands of an island local who was inspired by books.
Winner of the 2018 BCI Asia Interior Design Awards, The Library contains an intimate collection of pool villas, suites and studios, all built in a contemporary style and equipped with ultra-chic modern facilities.
The pure vibration of white spaces wash over as relaxation overtakes. This sheer absence of stimulation is an effect in itself; there is no clutter, no paintings to irk and no busy prints to agitate.
The hotel’s new luxurious pool villas, known collectively as Secret Chapters, complement its brilliant stable of unique accommodations. These beautiful spaces carry the same design ethos The Library is renowned for but with a more intimate approach. The Secret Pool Villas form the crux of this collection, together with two special villas, namely, The Writer and The Editor.
The Library offers a service concept that is unique in character from other properties on the island. Each service outlet and accommodation space is equipped with convenient facilities, but at the same time, provides a touch of nature. This ensures that guests remember their holiday as a fantastic experience with the opportunity to get closer to the earth.
For the ultimate breakfast in bed experience, guests can lay on one of the crisp white mattresses dotting the beach at The Page restaurant, an all-day dining venue which features prominently in Thailand Tatler’s famed list of best restaurants seven years in a row. Cuisine at The Page is a mix of Thai and international with a special focus on rare old-kingdom Thai cuisine.
The hotel’s beach bar is famous for its extensive selection of creative cocktails. The Library’s penchant for gastronomic originality extends to the Drink Gallery, and an al fresco Tapas Bar that serves authentic Thai tapas, Pad Thais and hand-crafted cocktails.
An award-winning, red swimming pool is surrounded by a wooden deck with direct views of the beach, and the hotel’s namesake inhouse library has a collection of over 1400 books available to borrow. A full wall of glass provides natural light that softens and warms the space, which also offers a computer workstation and a large comfortable lounge.
If you want to enjoy a relaxing book-reading lifestyle where simple sophistication is king, The Library is sure to inspire and indulge your imagination.
