Known for its red pool and quiet, reflective spaces, The Library is the perfect getaway for the ultra-chic traveler. Guests can choose from one of 26 mod studios or can opt for a more private experience by booking one of the 20 pool villas located on the ‘Secret Chapters’ side of the property. The villas are complete with their own entrance, 24/7 lounge, and secluded red pool with ocean front access.
True to its name, the library on the property does not disappoint. After you’ve had your fun in the sun, carve out a few quiet hours in the afternoon to peruse the impressive coffee table book collection, silently making plans for your own home library. The selection covers a wide variety of topics but our favorites take us into the island homes of the well-to-do and the southeast asian traditions that inspire their design.
This Design Hotel truly feels a world away from the chaos of Bangkok and the sometimes less than fabulous sides of island living. Guests will definitely find themselves asking, ‘Do I have to leave?’
