Please do not book this hotel. I arrived here for 5nights stay with my fiance. On the fifth day I left my diamond ring in the room just to go down for breakfast. I didn't feel the need to carry my valuables since for the past four days the room was being cleaned in the afternoon. We went down at... More

My daughter and I stayed at The Scent for four nights for some welcomed 'down time' after a friend's birthday gathering on Koh Tao. The hotel is intimate and peaceful and located in a very quiet area of Bophut. Our room was large and comfortable - stunning decor, billowing drapes, beautiful furniture and fixtures with ceiling to floor windows. We... More

This place had the most comfortable bed out of all the places we stayed. I would agree the bathroom was rather dark. We had no problem getting hot water when taking a bath but the water never got all that warm when we took a shower. We enjoyed the pool and kayaks and they helped us to rent a motorbike... More

This is a real gem hidden in the busy district of Bophut. If you have not been to KohSamui - this is a very convenient spot to stay in as the hotel is on a beautiful stretch of beach but also very close to the bustle of the town should you wish to venture out. Fishermans village is only a... More

The Scent hotel is a very nice and well organised place. The reception area is impressive and the girls are always smiling. The room itself was nice and clean and it had a fantastic charm to it. The bathroom was great, it only missed an extra mirror somewhere, as its really hard to use if you are using glasses. Putting... More

We stayed recently enjoying an 80% discount which was great value for money however had I paid the full price (which I wouldn't) I'd demand a refund and find another hotel. For the full price you could stay in many samui hotels much better then the scent for 2 or 3 nights for the price of this one. The pool... More

This was part of a 35 day journey to explore Asia. The scent was meant to be a relaxing stop in a chaotic journey spanning 7 countries. This truly was a paradise. So much so that we extended our stay for an extra 2 nights, for 7 total nights and skipped on Kao Tao. All rooms have great attention to... More

Great little couples hotel full of old world charm. Rough around the edges in parts but all added to the unique boutique feel. If you want everything to be like a perfectly functioning big chain hotel you may feel disappointed. We were not. Great comfy beds, quiet out-of-the-way location but a short cab ride from the 'Fisherman's Village' in Bophut,... More
