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

I chose this hotel because there was a really good discounted rate on Expedia and Mr & Mrs Smith had reviewed the hotel and gave a very positive review. I like this hotel but glad I am only staying for three nights. It has potential to be excellent, but I think the hotel is now a little tired and needs... More

We stay here only 1 night. The hotel locate in the middle of bophut. This is the best hidden gems in samui. The room is clean, nice unlike a big hotel in samui. I would recommend to the people who want to come to samui. We book in the hotel website and the price and promotionis reasonable. We recommend and... More
