From the moment we were picked up at the airport we had great service from the team at the Scent hotel. They even helped us secure a rental car on-the-spot effortlessly. You do need a car here, as there's not a lot around the hotel. The location is barely 10 minutes away from the airport, but not near the flight... More

Beautiful Indochinese designed boutique small hotel, our suite direct access onto the beach was stunning and very roomy French designed interiors. The Restaurant was superb even when the head chef was not in attendance, excellent. Unfortunately our only complaint was the weather, very windy and lots of debris on the beach, but I am sure weather permitting and no wind... More

Perfect location, room 224 was in a great spot The breakfasts are fantastic I would recommend the potato rosti The staff try to make your stay the best you could have. My only negative comment would be, the beach needs a clean up, further along the beach was like a council tip!!! Worth a visit

First impressions of the hotel are great, with a beautiful pool in the centre of the rooms. Nicely appointed bedrooms and directly at the beach. Rooms Upon closer inspection, we enjoyed the large room. However it could use some stronger lights in the evening, it is simply impossible to read a book in bed. Also the AC is blowing directly...

We stayed at the Scent Hotel for five nights with the express aim to just enjoy the place and not do much at all except read, swim, eat and chill out - Samui is that kind of place. So we splashed out on one of the sea front rooms. At first we were in room 221 but we didn't like... More

Nice little hotel but way overpriced (during peak season). + Room221 is decorated tastefully and has a big balcony with hammock and a stunning sea view. Great bed. Restaurant Le Jaroen was very good. - The airco smelt like the kitchen underneath the room, awful. We expected a big beach looking on the website, but it was disappointing, maybe because... More

We stayed one night the 2nd if Jan one of the sea side suites. The place is very nice, seine obviously put an extraordinary amount of time on the meticulous colonial style interior design and the rooms are very nice. I would recommend to get a suite facing the ocean if you can. We had a great night and as... More

Take a room nearby the Beach, Rooms @ streetside maybe to noisy, the resto is good, but expensive, staff is friendly. If you have the possibility, take room 111. Do Not expect a nice Beach. We had almost no Beach at all (11/2013)
