The Library is a stunning conceptual hotel built in a semi-minimalist architectural style, located at the heart of Chaweng Beach in Koh Samui, Thailand. The project was shaped by the hands of an island local who was inspired by books and a simple lifestyle philosophy. “The book is never out of date,” says Mr. Kasemtham Sornsong, Owner and Managing Director of The Library. “As time passes, many things will change, but the book is immortal.” Working on a 6400 square meter plot of heritage land with a 50-metre beachfront area, Mr. Sornsong, together with concept designer, Ms. Tirawan Songsawat created what is now the trendiest hotel in Thailand (2012 Traveler’s Choice Awards,

The Library has a total of 26 unique accommodations in the form of Exotic Suites located on the ground floor, Smart Studios on the upper levels and an ultra-luxurious unit called The Bookmark which is closest to the sea. An expansive 2- Bedroom Suite was also introduced lately to accommodate guests who travel with family. In order to maintain the site’s natural ecology, Mr. Sornsong and Ms. Songsawat realized the design without the use of bulldozers. Thus in addition to the ocean, each room provides guests with a glimpse of age-old trees, lovingly preserved and now part of the complex.

Interspersed with works of art and sculpture, The Library and its surroundings boast a balance of nature and culture, in which verdant gardens, blue waters and pale beaches are offset by a bold color scheme dominated by white, red, black and gray. Interiors bathed in an ultra-minimalist palette are completed with modern facilities such as large plasma screen televisions with DVD players, iPod touch, and iMAC computers with high-speed Internet connection. True to the designers’ belief that a good holiday equals an opportunity to enjoy a good book, guests are invited to lounge and enjoy the vast collection of books available, which gives The Library its distinctive name.

Kemal and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the time and effort you put into making our wedding perfect.

From the second I saw the setup I was lost for words, You created the most beautiful setting for us and our guests. I have never seen a group of people so speechless.

Thank you for continuously chasing me up and accommodating all our demands and being there on the day to ensure everything ran smoothly. You always made sure we had a drink in our hand and eating and making sure we were enjoying the day.

And thank you for letting me constantly harass you in the days leading up to the wedding about my hair and spray tans.

To anyone wanting a destination wedding, I cannot recommend Angela and her team enough. The time and effort and passion they put into the planning of your wedding is astounding.

I only wish I could go back and re live it all again and again!
