This hotel is new and one of the best resorts on chaweng beach, the breakfast is great and served in an air conditioned restaurant which is unusual for thailand, the pool is huge and we never had a problem getting a sun bed as they are plentiful and the pool being so close to the beach you have plenty of choice, the manager Chris is fantastic and the resort is very lucky to have him his English and personal touch are fabulous he is a huge asset to this company and the reason we would definately return.
Spent 7 nights at Centara Grand in October 2014, we had a fantastic time the staff were lovely always smiling, made freiends with the some of the girls on reception and they are great girls, stayed in a deluxe ocean view room, it was nice had a big balcony overlooking the grounds and the beach very relaxing. The Hotel is on the beach and its clean white sand it was beautiful, Breakfast needs to be looked at as it beacame very repetative and they need to have a better selection of Tea's.
I had a Body Scrub and massage in the Spa and it was fantastic costs a little more than outside but you cannot compare it was worth it.
Overall we had great holdiay and enjoyed our stay at Centara and will return next year.
There is little doubt that the Library is one of the most professionally run hotels in Chaweng. The staff, the design and condition of the room and facilities, the innovation (most especially beds on the beach for breakfast) and the food is of the highest quality.

First visit to to Ko Samui and was recommended this hotel by a family member. Excellent location along Chaweng beachfront with beach access directly from the hotel. A minimart right across the road which was very handy and just a few minutes walk (less than 5 mins) to Central Festival shopping mall which had all the modern restaurants, cafes and shops. A 400 baht taxi ride to/from the airport. Very pleasant staff and decent size rooms. We had two rooms side by side for parents and teens. The parents room had a connecting door but to the room on the opposite side to where the kids were. This made it trickier to share things like bug spray and toiletries but there were phones in the room so we made use of these to organise dinner etc. Overall a very pleasant stay.
This place is only a few months new, so no one seems to know where it is. Getting off the ferry, the driver dropped us off at the wrong location. We asked some locals and they said it was about 10 mins away. The next driver dropped us off a block away the building, so we asked another local and they said we were past it and that we needed to go back the same area we were around the first time. After talking to a security, he told the taxi driver exactly where we need to go, so we finally arrived at the hotel 600 baht later. What was frustrating was that we were only a block away and were told to go the other way. The guys helping us all called the hotel, but somehow they couldn't pinpoint the location. IF you book the hotel, tell them to take you to the Centara Resort. This hotel is directly across from the resort.
Amazing resort, we had a superior room which was really nice, positioned on the opposite side of the resort from Ark Bar which was loud, but we couldn't hear it atall. Beautiful staff, very friendly, really beautiful garden filled resort, position on the beach was really nice.
This is an absolutely beautiful hotel. Has many pro's like the location, friendly staff, great spa and on the beach.
We also got a few complimentary items with each meal we ordered which was a nice touch and much appreciated.

We (2 couples) stayed at this property from 3 Oct to 11 Oct 2014. This hotel met all our criteria - great rooms, right on the beach, infinity type pool and located next to the main market place. Both of our rooms were big, had electronic controls, 42 inch plasma, bathroom with Jacuzzi and great comfy bed that was serviced by great staff. Both front desk girls (Tai & Oun) were very helpful and the travel agent (Gam) was fantastic. I even like to recommend the concierge (both Chan & Toto) for recommending places to visit (do's n don'ts), giving us updates on the weather etc. One tip for fellow travelers - hire the motorbike/scooters from the hotel as they won't keep your passport as a bond.
Ark bar is my favourite Bar and the best I've been to in Thailand also in my favourite place Samui so loved my stay music is loud and can hear it from your room till 2am so if your wanting a quiet hotel it's not for you but would def go for a drink and food one night!
