Our room had a wonderful view over the pool towards the ocean. Our bed was very comfortable and the air-con was quiet and efficient. The breakfast menu is excellent as was the standard of food. The Hotel is in a very quiet part of the island if rest is what you are after. However.... We named our bathroom The Bat... More

Spend a couple of days at the Scent Hotel at Bangrak Beach. I instantly fell in love with the setting, design and rooms. It is perfectly located right at the beach with views on the nearby islands. The staff is super friendly but their English can be a bit sketchy on occasion. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served outside overlooking... More

As usual when you book a hotel at s resort you have never been to before there is always that little bit of anxiety when you arrive. Reception welcome was very warm and friendly as was the airport pick up service. As the hotel was our base for the holiday we opted for the romantic beachfront suite. We asked for... More

This was the first hotel my husband and I stayed in when we arrived in Thailand and we stayed for 5 nights. We were somewhat skeptical about koh samui as we're aware that it has become overly commercialised over the last few years, however this charming boutique hotel takes you away from all of that- it's very private and secluded....

The rooms at this boutique hotel are good-sized. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. It's about a 20 minute walk from Fisherman village. Loved the breakfast with the amazing views. We really enjoyed our stay.

The hotel seemed very intimate and secluded from much of the chaos of the island. With it's private beach and high class rooms, this boutique hotel was a very relaxing choice for our stay.
