THE ROOMS AT THE LIBRARY
The Library holds 13 suites and 13 studios that are filled with the ever changing sun light of Thailand. The suites are located on the ground floor whereas the studios face the sea on the first floor of the stylish cubes of the hotel.
The interior works with white and skillfully accentuated surfaces. All of them equipped with an Apple computer and an iPod Touch for your playlist.
If you are into the power of light, play around with the changing light source above the giant bed in the rooms.Or even better: watch the sun set on your terrace and meditate on the joy of life.

ART / DESIGN / ARCHITECTURE
The art collection of the hotel is well spread over the 6.400 square meters of the property. With eye-catching contemporary, but also traditional art work, the collection works with the cultural and nature origins of Thailand. Explore the pieces made of wood and steel. One of the design highlights is the brilliant ruby pool, set in a wooden terrace with beach view.
FOOD & DRINKS
On the beach, the restaurant „Page“ will pamper you with Asian and international cuisine. Thankfully the food is not only an eye catcher but also comes in a reasonable size. The „Drink Gallery“ comes in the shape of a glass cube with leafy canopy and colorful art and a spectacular interior design.
SPA & YOGA
The hotel’s private beach is ideal for morning yoga and beautiful sunrises to be enjoyed by yourself as the beach is very silent at this time of the day. Those who prefer their morning sweating in the gym, just walk in the bright glass cube on the beach.
THINGS TO ENJOY
Who is as excited as I am when it comes to reading, should browse through the 1.300 books in the „Library“. You will be happily find a carefully chosen selection of art, fiction and architecture books.
