Infamous red pool chic

Sitting on the stunning beach of Chaweng lies The Library, this peaceful retreat is sure to leave you relaxed and refreshed with it's unique architecture and minimalist style. Spend your days relaxing with a cocktail in hand by the iconic Red pool, which was named by TripAdvisor and Conde Nast as one the most spectacular hotel pools in the world. Unwind with one of the many books on offer in The Lib or head out to explore the local town of Chaweng.

Speechless!

Tel Aviv, Israel

I am currently at the hotel as I’m writing this review... I just wanted to say that this place is a paradise on earth! We choose The Secret Pool Villa and it is just amazingly beautiful! They thought about every little detail and I mean EVERY little detail! The service is beyond perfect..they assign to our room a VIP Concierge just for us! Her name is Bovy sweet and professional and she is available 24/7 for whatever you need (booking excursions, prepare the jacuzzy before you get to the room, change your currency etc... Honestly I’ve been traveling a lot and have been to many luxury hotels around the globe but this one left me speechless! Thank you to all of the people who are taking care of us at this right moment and thank you for creating such an amazing place . I strongly recommend this place ! Philippe a very happy customer <3

A unique place in Koh Samui

I spent 4 nights at Library Hotel : not only the place is absolutely amazing as a matter of design, but the kindness and professionalism of the staff make your stay perfect ! Rooms are big and beautiful, amenities are great (the red pool, the library, the fit room...) but my favorite moment was the breakfast on the beach ! A particular thank to Por, Rock, Tarn and Ana for your every days attentions !
