An escape for the bookish in Koh Samui

If¬†Thailand’s beaches and watersports aren’t enough for the literary minded traveller, Design Hotels has a bookish alternative that doesn’t sacrifice style.

The Library, a 46-room luxury resort set against the backdrop of Chaweng Beach in Koh Samui, offers a collection of more than 1,400 books for guests who still like to engage the mind when they travel.

Its studios, suites and soon-to-open “secret pool villas” are spread over 12,800m2 of grounds, along with the resort’s Page restaurant and Drink Gallery.

Now represented in Australia by the Unique Tourism Collection, the resort is currently offering a Samui Traveller Special that includes breakfast on the beach, sparkling wine, a three course dinner and other inclusions from THB9,100 per night during select dates until December.
