You will be welcome with Vicky's or Duen 's warm smile. You will admire the lobby decoration and irresistible smell after you enter main door. Rooms are decorated differently and makes you feel in different atmosphere and at home. All excellent staff are always next to you whenever you need them . More variety could be at the breakfast but... More

This is a lovely boutique hotel with helpful staff and a tranquil place to stay. The beachfront suites are the best rooms - lots of space and great sea views. You will need transport which can be easily arranged by the hotel to visit Fishermans Village and other local attractions. The hotel is close to the airport but not on... More

We booked a 6 night stay at The Scent through Booking.com. Be aware that the room information not always match the information so better just contact the hotel directly. The hotel has a very stylish design and is probably not very suitable for families. The rooms is located on ground floor just next to the pool or one level up,... More

We are currently staying at the Scent hotel and cannot fault the service, accomodation, food or location. Knowing that this leg of our journey was to be a relaxing, slightly indulgent stay, The Scent hotel hits the mark. Impeccably styled throughout, with essential oil being burnt throughout the hotel, living up to the hotel's name, you cannot help but feel... More

The service upon arrival was disjointed and perhaps by trying to keep the serene ambiance I found it hard to hear what the hotel staff were saying! Having said that, staff were very pleasant and when we worked we were greeted with refreshing drinks and bags taken up to our rooms with an extensive run through of the rooms features.... More

First off, this person below is an extremist - my husband and I were on our honeymoon and also stayed the night of the wedding that they mentioned. We were all fairly warned there would be a wedding and the time frame of the wedding. We actually sat out on the restaurant (which was still open as was the pool)... More

Despite being a beautiful hotel with great sea views and pool, we were disappointed with the level of care given. A wedding party on the beach which was scheduled to go on until midnight on our first night was very loud and continued on until 1.30 am. No staff picked up the phone in reception and refused to turn the... More

Hotel about 20 minutes from Koh Samui airport, taxi was 400 baht (couldn't be bothered with bartering). The hotel could be easily missed, but once I stepped inside the reception, I was warmly welcomed and given a refreshing lemongrass drink which the lady said was homemade. Having arrived early, the room wasn't quite ready but had lunch in the restaurant... More
