I spent one night here and it was everything I could ask for. A small gorgeous boutique hotel with excellent service. A special thanks to Vicky for making my stay so comfortable and I'm very grateful to her kind service. The room is cozy and very well decorated and romantic. I am definitely going back for more.

Small intimate boutique hotel with exceptional friendly and professional service made this the most relaxing holiday I have experienced. Very few people around the dining area or pool - 1 or 2 couples at any time. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. Breakfast fantastic Food excellent for any meal. Fine dining at night was very classy. Rooms stylish.... More

I stayed at The Scent Hotel for 2 nights. I had already been in Koh Samui for a month at a yoga retreat and wanted to find a gentle ease into 'civilization'. The hotel is quaint and uber stylishly decorated with a sweet pool - nicely cool for the hot months. I had room 221, with amazing views. While the... More

When we contacted the general manager and the manager we were told to file... More

My friend and I, we planed this trip for a month to go to Samui. We both stay at many boutique hotels worldwide. Moreover, from dozen of boutique hotels in Samui we chose this one because we entrust in its reputation, therefore we have high expectation but as it turns out we were extremely disappointed. Our trip was supposed to... More

Good place to sleep when you have to be close to the airport. Try to get a room close to the sea, traffic can be noisy. The bedroom might be a bit dark, but the bed was great, and you can find good products in the bathroom for shower. The friendly staff arranged us a renting a car, which is... More

I and my friend are staying at "The scent hotel" in Samui, Thailand - a member of SLH. We are really disappointed at the services, responsibility and poor hospitality of this hotel. My friend arrived at the hotel yesterday and checked in, went to the room by the pool and went straight into the pool after that. She was swiming... More

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
