Black, white, and red all over. This upscale beach resort is famous for its red swimming pool contrasting with the chic white hotel surrounding it. Rooms here are divided into studios and suites (known as pages and chapters), and in keeping with the hotel’s name, the resort’s main feature is a library with an array of books and films. State-of-the-art digs (with Jacuzzis and rain showers) provide an extraordinary range of luxuries, from huge plasma TVs and iMac computers to light boxes and self-controlled colored lighting. Beds sit atop huge platform structures with carefully curated Buddhist touches.  It’s cool, it’s original, and it appeals to those with a leaning toward techno-Zen.
