Well-versed Beachfront Minimalist Retreat

Against the seductive backdrop of Koh Samui’s Chaweng Beach, The Library reads like an elegant monograph. Owned by Samui native Kasemtham Sornsong and created with designer Tirawan Songsawat, the beachfront hotel—an elegant minimalist structure—is a refreshing and subtle play on the notion of the book.

The expansive grounds provide ample space for guests to flourish, each area representing a blank page on which to write their story. Divided into 26 suite/studio cabins, the complex avoids the monolithic hotel-complex look, scattering discreet buildings in lush vegetation. With its restrained yet sophisticated design, the conceptual resort is unique to the island. Understated and peaceful, The Library narrates a story in which genuine harmony with the neighboring landscape is a tangible achievement. The hotel’s library binds the property; its collection of over 1,400 books, available to borrow, provides a satisfying alternative to modern distractions.

The Library Factsheet

The famous French sculptor, Rodin once said that “what you make with time, time respects.” And so we did. For years we have been busy writing, editing and polishing our next riveting chapter – a set of new pool villas meticulously crafted under the concepts of space, privacy and mystery. The Library has always been about stories and unique experiences, and the beauty of a good story is that there is always so much more to tell.

Indulge in original dining experiences at one of The Library’s trendy dining venues. An afternoon soiree, chill island music, a refreshing cocktail at the Beach Bar or the Drink Gallery – all check. As the sun sets, take a starlit stroll to The Page for a gourmet dinner of old-kingdom Thai cuisine amidst a gentle sea breeze. All just steps away from your room.

Holding fort on the beachfront is The Library’s iconic restaurant, The Page. With a menu offering of Thai and international fusion and a host of “Original Experiences” found nowhere else, the renowned restaurant has inevitably made its mark on Koh Samui’s upscale dining scene. New is a collection of rare, old-kingdom cuisine which are now absent in contemporary tables.

The Drink Gallery is a unique dining platform unseen in Koh Samui – an upmarket bar and restaurant with a casual yet sophisticated character. Its approach on food is artistic simplicity with a homey feel; the drinks, tastefully layered, whimsical and form-breaking worthy of a night’s discussion.

The Drink Gallery expands to include an alfresco bar-venue where one can sample a host of authentic Thai tapas cuisine at affordable prices. There are 38 dishes to choose from, including house favorites such as Plah Pla and Sua Rong Hai . The Tapas Bar is also hosting daily Happy Hours from 4PM – 8PM, plus an all-night special on local beer and house wine.

Tranquil moat-side setting opposite the exquisite Imperial Palace gardens.

Palace Hotel Tokyo, a 290-room heir to some of the city’s most exclusive real estate in Marunouchi on a stunning, moat-side setting by the Imperial Palace.

The hotel’s 10 restaurants and bars include Japanese, Chinese and French dining venues with designs on Michelin stars. In a country not otherwise known for its spa culture, the hotel is cutting the ribbon on the first ever
evian® SPA in Japan. And its ownership, management and service standards are Japanese through and through.





Its 12 categories of accommodation range from deluxe rooms, at 45 to 55 square metres, to suites that start at 75 square metres and extend to 255 square metres. Most of the rooms feature openstyle bathrooms with separate soaking tubs and showers, and more than half of the rooms and suites have open terraces and balconies. And for good reason. Every guest room in the house features views of Tokyo’s Imperial Palace gardens as well as the surrounding skyline beyond. Each room’s decor invokes the hotel’s proximity to Tokyo’s natural splendour, from the leafy
carpet motifs to the earthy mix of golds and creams. Nature notwithstanding, the rooms pay homage to modern exigencies with complimentary wireless and wired high-speed Internet access,46-inch LCD TVs and Blue-ray/DVD/CD players.

Uniquely Japanese touches to the rooms include the 300-thread count Imabari bed linens and bath towels from Ehime prefecture, and Maruyama Nori teas manufactured in Tokyo’s Tsukiji district.





Palace Hotel Tokyo is shooting for the stars – Michelin stars – with several of its 10 restaurants and bars.

On the hotel’s sixth floor, the original Palace Hotel’s French restaurant, Crown, first opened in 1964, returns as a collaboration with Patrick Henriroux, who has maintained a two-star reputation at La Pyramide in Vienne, France for more than 10 years.

Also on the sixth floor, Michelin two-star Chef Shinji Kanesaka conducts operations at Sushi Kanesaka, one of a quartet of dining options under the Wadakura banner. Named for one of the six moats surrounding the Imperial Palace, Wadakura also offers up a tempura bar called
Tatsumi and Go, an area dedicated to teppanyaki. Likewise, Go references the Imperial Palace’s ‘moat’ and Tatsumi is named for the ancient imperial watchtower visible from the restaurant’s main dining area.

On the fifth floor, Amber Palace plates up Shanghainese and Cantonese cuisines, leveraging the culinary expertise of the Chugoku Hanten Group, the same operator of Tokyo’s two-star Michelin restaurant, Fureika.
Beyond these stellar ambitions, the hotel offers all-day dining in its Grand Kitchen, featuring an eclectic selection inspired by various cuisines. At Sweets & Deli, the hotel’s cake and pastry shop,the chocolate is homemade and the breads freshly baked.

The hotel’s three bars each cultivate a different ambiance. In The Palace Lounge, a contemporary tea house commands the bright lofty space during the day, serving the finest homegrown leaves as well as selections from around the world. Sunset cues its conversion into a
champagne and cocktail bar.

The sixth-floor’s chic Lounge Bar Privé seats 50 inside and half as many on a terrace outside, offering a vantage on Tokyo by day and by night. Downstairs in the Royal Bar, they’re smoking cigars and mixing martinis the old-fashioned way.

The counter in the Royal Bar is a restoration of the 1961 bar designed by ‘Mr.Martini’, the hotel’s very first (and ultimately long-time) bartender, and The Palace Lounge is home to an ivory-keyed Steinway, also original to the 1961-built hotel.





Occupying 1,200 square metres of space on the fifth floor, the hotel’s evian® SPA will be the first ever in Japan – and a future must for wellness in Tokyo. Its five treatment rooms, one spa suite and separate ladies’ and gentlemen’s relaxation lounge form the heart of the city’s most ambitious new spa. Its gentlemen’s spa area features a heated bath, reclining bath, cold plunge and dry sauna, and the ladies spa area includes a heated bath and marble sauna. The spa’s design is a metaphorical reflection of the journey evian® natural mineral water takes through the Alps, from the loose stone garden at reception signifying the water’s source (mountaintop) to the ceiling of the treatment rooms reflecting ripples in a pond. Inspired by the same, the spa’s menu will encompass treatments themed around celestial restoration, mineral enrichment, precious nourishment and renewed vitality. Products by Omnisens and Anne Semonin will be incorporated throughout.  The Vitalising Signature, a treatment exclusively created for evian® SPA TOKYO, starts off with Japanese trigger point-style bodywork to improve the flow of Qi throughout before a Swedishstyle deep tissue massage is applied to release tension and ‘trigger’ the body to naturally restore its own balance from within.





Beyond the spa, the hotel’s fitness facility is open around the clock, featuring exercise equipment by Technogym and Life Fitness. The hotel’s indoor pool is 20 metres long and three lanes wide,and framed on one side by wall-to-wall windows and an outdoor terrace.
