I d like to say compliments to the owner for setting up this venue and decorate it. It s really unique. Stayed 3 nights last week at the scent. The room is beautiful. But the hotel is really rundown. It needs a huge engineering job, lot of broken tiles in pubblic spaces, wood not screwed properly in the floor outside... More

Spent 5 nights for a wedding on the beach. What makes this place so special is great location, absolutely beautiful rooms, great food but mostly the staff! Vicky managed our daily itinerary, Jacky and Jack served us plenty of drinks and Neem and Poi our delicious meals. We can not wait to return! Thank you to all the staff !!

My husband and I stayed at the scent hotel for 10 nights in June 2016. This was our 4th visit to Koh Samui but our first time at the Scent. We booked private transfer from the airport and enjoyed the 10 minute drive to the hotel. The hotel could easily be missed from the main road, but enter through the... More

As an astronomical FOODIE I tend to choose my accommodation around the quality of the cuisine. The Scent was at the top of my list purely based on the restaurant menu, but I'll tell you more about that in a minute. The Scent! A 12 room boutique hotel, right on the beach. The experience started the moment I entered the... More

The hotel had beautiful rooms and accommodations. It is right on the beach in a quiet area which made for a nice peaceful stay. We rented a car through the hotel and journeyed through some unspoiled non-touristy areas and really enjoyed the time. The food was excellent but expect to pay higher prices than many other meal options in Thailand.... More

The Scent is a lovely and cozy place in Koh Samui. Rooms are beautiful and well decorated. I had the suite on the ground floor and had the option of having the one on the upper floor, which I visited by request, but I simply could not let go of being literally on the beach. Great shower, lovely tub and... More

Stayed an extended weekend to relax. Mission accomplished :-) A great place. The food: There is one restaurant in this small hotel and it has a good view over the beach. Had breakfast, lunch and dinner there. Absolutely awesome. Nicely served and really good taste. Portions are nice as well. Something to please all. Staff was very attentive and helpful.... More

We recently spent 10 days at The Scent and had the pleasure of staying in room 221, which is a second level beach suite with its own huge, private terrace. The Scent is small in size but not in character. Its rooms are very generous yet it retains a very intimate feel overall. In fact, it felt at times that... More

Nice hotel at the beach with a very friendly staff. Nice rooms (suites) nicely decorated. The place is not so suited with small children. But for us with teeanagers who loves to lay in the sun it was fine. The beach at the hotel are not the best, but it is nice to cool of at the hotel pool. Good... More

We stayed here in June 2016 after traveling trough Thailand for three weeks. We loved the hotel: great design, great food and very clean. It is a bit out of the way, but for us that was exactly what we wanted. Located just between fishermans village and Chaweng, this place is good for relaxing and not that far away from... More
