One of Thailand's trendiest hotels has an explicit fondness towards books and bold contemporary design. The Library has a beachfront location on the country's second-largest island. Koh Samui is known for its palm-fringed beaches, coconut groves, and lush, mountainous rainforests.
The hotel's buildings are structured just like a book. Dominant black and white colors with a hint of red representing the suspense, and the squared openings in the facades as new chapters in the storyline. Another quirky detail is the human-like statues with books in their hands scattered around the hotel's premises. The Lib library has a collection of over 1,400 books and movies.
Spacious design studios and suites are available for the more price-conscious, while the four individually designed villas are if you are looking for a splurge. The Writer is the largest and most exclusive villa available at The Library. The living spaces are opening up to a private pool with a view of the beach. The pool's wall doubles as a giant screen for Champagne-filled movie nights once the spectacular sunset is over.
The Library's iconic, blood-red pool is just as striking in real life as it is in the photos. The Page, a beachfront restaurant offers Thai delicacies next to the unique swimming pool.
If you are planning for an active holiday, one of the highlights is the limestone caves of Ang Thong Marine National Park. It's a magical, 42-island archipelago marine park in the Gulf of Thailand.
