My husband and I travelled to Koh Samui from Chiang Mai as part of our honeymoon away in Thailand. The Scent Hotel was actually recommended to us by Mr and Mrs Smith, so we decided to go for it and spend 4 nights at the hotel. We arrived early April. The entrance was quite sweet, a lady at the front...

We just arrived last night, and felt compelled to write a review about the lovely hotel. Our room is a sea view suite, with large balcony with hammock and sofas, and it's just perfect. Lovely bathroom too and huge bed. The staff are welcoming and breakfast fantastic. It's a la carte rather than buffet, which I much prefer. It is...

We stayed here last year for our honeymoon and while we were disappointed there was construction during our stay and the beach wasn't what we had hoped for the people who run this hotel made it a place to remember. Vicky was very personable and she sincerely cared about our satisfaction with our stay and did everything in her power...

Booked the ocean front suite room 121...I can't speak to the other rooms but recommend getting one of the suites if you can as they are amazing. Expensive but worth it. Wrap around ocean facing balcony with windows all around, large bathroom, good A/C, comfortable bed and pillows. Cooked to order breakfast starting at 7am. Located on narrow strip of...

We planned to spend a week (including New Years) at The Scent as a family and were looking forward to a relaxing quiet beach holiday . Pictures showed a small luxury property overlooking the beach/ocean. At arrival we were shocked to see a strip of sand/ small beach (was high tide) was littered with plastic and trash. The wood /...

We chose this hotel for our honeymoon I was looking for a quiet getaway and this was the perfect place! We opted for a beachfront suite and were not disappointed. Our room was on the first floor directly on the beach including our own lounges on the beach! I couldn't be happier with the hotel. Breakfast was amazing the French...

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights on our first visit to Koh Samui. The grounds are just stunning, it certainly has the wow factor! It's location is around a 5 minute tuk tuk ride from fisherman's village, or a 20 minute walk. There are a few shops and restaurants around the hotel, although they didn't appeal to...

The concept of the hotel is really cute. The room has a nice design and the bath room is big and nice. And we really appreciate the bed! It's so comfortable we wish we could take it home! Every afternoon the hotels stuff brings a small plate of dessert to the room we found it really kind from the hotel....

We enjoyed a sea-view suite for three nights here. This is perhaps one of the most beautiful, charming and romantic hotels I've been to, with a great atmosphere in a colonial style. The room and balcony were very spacious. The beach is immediately next to the hotel, very quiet and well kept, but also very narrow (which didn't bother us)....

Just back from a weeks stay at this beautiful hotel, had a sea view suite very clean with excellent decor. The restaurant serves very good food and all the staff are lovely and made us feel really welcome. The hotel put on a very special valentine's meal on the beach with dancers, again a fantastic night to remember. Overall we...
