The Library, becoming part of the story
The Library, a unique conceptual resort located at Chaweng Beach, was on our want list for the Murakami Samui from the beginning. That we didn´t managed to work there in our first visit comes as no surprise. The Library consists of only 26 exclusive units, making it hard to be among the chosen few during high season.
Luckily the kind librarians invited us to dine at their beachfront restaurant, giving us some first insight into the concept of The Library. The Page, a culinary heaven on both sides of the plate, vegetarian and carnetarian, is the perfect counterpart to The Library. Excellent fusion food, created by Chef Nokveedz in a unique style with outstanding food presentation, served with signature cocktails of her own recipes. Every now and then, international artists are invited to “My Library”, special evenings matching different kinds of arts like opera or painting with a variety of gastronomy from the world class chefs.
At this evening we had the pleasure to talk with Thanyaporn Thirawat about the story behind The Library.
The Library is one of a kind among the art resorts of the world, based on an idea as simple as convincing: To complete one good vacation, what else do you expect, apart from a nice room, delicious meals with good ambience? One good book, memorable movies and music in style - these will help you enjoy and complete one good vacation with your love ones or friends.
Thus The Library is not only a fancy name but a real library, the white heart of this beautiful place. A clever advancement of the tiny bookshelves at many bungalow resorts where left over books wait for new readers.
This fleet-footed basic, that real happiness is not complicated at all, is realized by a surprising stringent concept that covers all and every aspect of the hotel sector. From the classic color scheme of white, grey, black and red to the minimalistic, genuine interior, each little detail is carefully designed. Not grave and brittle as it is executed with a charming and serene attitude. Ants are printed on the sugar bags on the table, the foyer is called content and the do not disturb signs are frivolous fun. Design with a smile.
The suites and studios, both high tech armored masterpieces in interior, are labeled “pages”, suggesting that every guest becomes a part of the ongoing book called the Library. Visiting The Library means living its story, a very exciting story.
