To be honest, Ko Samui was not our thing. Did not like the commercial developments and mass tourism. Fortunately we had booked the Scent Hotel which felt like a small heaven every time we came home after a trip or beach. Staff was super friendly and more than willing to help. Thanks again for all your help, Nan and Vicky!... More

The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is lovely. My primary frustration is the hot water. After a long day in transit, I just wanted to take a quick shower. Even my crappy bungalow in Tonsai had hot water. Reception informed me that it can take 5-10 mins to kick-in...well, I waited 15 mins before giving up and just... More

The decoration of the rooms are exceptionel. Very nice large rooms. Good service. But it is located a bit to far from fishermans village to walk there with a baby in a stroller. The food is very nice but expensive and very European. Very nice breakfast included. A pricy hotel compared to others in Thailand. Children are more than wellcome.... More

Lovely rooms and really nicely interior design. Staff was friendly but not very proactive or helpfull. We booked the seabreeze room which on booking.com showed full sea view and included sea view pictures of the room. Once we arrived we had a room by the pool and no seaview at all. When I showed this to the receptionist the only... More

We have just spent 3 very pleasant days here. Minor glitches like no hot water were attended and fixed promptly. Serving staff could do with some serious training although they were always willing to help. The rooms are decorated in differing, period styles and although they could do with a little TLC, they are spacious, quaint and very comfortable and... More

After booking, I sent email to the Scent to confirm my booking in Nov and I got replied. I sent email again the day before we check in to... More

Sadly a lack of quality control has placed this charming Hotel in need of repair. Our room had no running hot water, the hand basin did not allow the dirty water to flow out,we waited two hours before they moved us to an unserviced room, curtains were torn, shampoo containers were chipped,bathroom mirrors rendered useless after a shower, no mirrors...
