The Library

A library on the beach

Do you look zombie-eyed? Are your hands carpal-tunneled out? You might just be suffering from an acute case of workaholism, and in need of some psychiatric attention for your addiction.

Doctor’s prescription: Head to Chaweng beach in Ko Samui, Thailand, and check into The Library hotel, where you can clear your mind of all corporate clutter. You’d be hard pressed not to get some peace of mind at this ‘sanctuary’, which preserves and integrates the coastal flora into its minimalist architecture and décor of bold, single colours. The almost all-white library of books, music and movies contrasts the red-tinted swimming pool and black bean bags (forget deck chairs) that are scattered along the beach. Adding to the palette are many art sculptures that speckle this mostly open-air, 6,400 square-meter complex. In such a relaxing environment, you can finally get your much needed R&R in your studio or suite, where there’s mood lighting and a Jacuzzi (suites only) in each cabin. If you really can’t leave work behind, there’s an iMac that comes with your room to keep you wired.

To really shake off workaholism, however, we suggest to leave all your worries behind cold turkey.
