The Library, a renowned conceptual hotel in Koh Samui, has been busy writing, editing and polishing its next riveting chapter – a set of new pool villas meticulously crafted under the concepts of space, privacy and mystery
This April, the iconic property is scheduled to introduce these ‘Secret Chapters’ partially, with a grand opening later in 2017. The Library has always been about stories and unique experiences, and the beauty of a good story is that there is always so much more to tell.
The Library’s unique take on pool villas carries the design ethos the hotel is well known for, but with a more intimate and playful approach. The 1-bedroom Secret Pool Villas form the crux of this curation, and consist of 17 keys in total, each one carefully created to exude a sense of unmitigated luxury and freedom. Perfectly suited for discerning couples and honeymooners, these are sprawling private spaces with mysteries to uncover and secrets to make. The floor area is 220sq.m with a custom-made 11-feet wide bed. Key features include a dedicated entertainment space, full dining area with pantry, spacious Jacuzzi bathtub, 8-metre long saltwater swimming pool, oversized tandem rain shower, him and hers walk-in closets and individual lavatories. Special introductory rates are currently offered for stays from 1 April to 15 July 2017.
Two other villa types will also be made available. The 2-bedroom Secret Pool Villa (2 keys) provides the exclusivity of a private home with spacious comfort for hosting two couples travelling together, a small family or a group of friends. The Writer, on the other hand, is a singular, expansive unit and features an absolute beach frontage and access, dedicated living and dining spaces, a private library, outdoor cinema and backyard gym, an upper floor terrace with spectacular views and an 8.5m x 7.5m saltwater swimming pool.
Against the seductive backdrop of famous Chaweng Beach, The Library reads like an elegant monograph; a design-centric hotel that invites one to sit with a book in quiet contemplation, while also weaving its own story of natural beauty and unmatched luxury. With its 26 studios and suites and the addition of 20 luxury pool villas, this minimalist resort cements its reputation as Koh Samui’s top boutique accommodation.

- Owned by Samui native Kasemtham Sornsong and created with designer Tirawan Songsawat, The Library is a beachfront hotel created as a refreshing and subtle play on the book. The expansive grounds provide ample space for guests to flourish, each area representing a blank page on which to write their story. With its restrained yet sophisticated design, the conceptual resort is unique to the island; its pure minimalism offers the perfect opportunity to capitalise on its thematic concept. Understated and peaceful, The Library narrates a story in which genuine harmony with the neighbouring landscape is a tangible achievement. The hotel’s library binds the property; its collection of over 1,400 books provides a satisfying alternative to modern distractions. Indeed, the 46 suites, studios and pool villas are interlaced with a reassuring assortment of modern technology. However, the enduring respect for the surrounding landscape is unequivocal. From The Page restaurant holding fort on the beachfront, to the Drink Gallery and Tapas Bar fronting Chaweng Road, The Library seals the chasm between nature and modern life. Like a good book, The Library contains an assortment of interesting chapters, enticing guests to learn to live harmoniously with nature.
