Staying at this hidden gem was an absolute delight. This hotel had it all! Upon arrival, we were greeted by Ing, after meeting Ing she was like my go-to for everything and she never let me down! Her English was truly amazing and she always went above and beyond to make our stay so much more memorable. I feel having someone you can truly connect with at your hotel always makes your stay that much better. Thank you, Ing! Other than Ing, the breakfast was out of this world! I never missed a breakfast here, and I will never miss it at my next stay! I read other reviews on here that the beach wasn't actually a beach... Wrong, I am a beach person and the beach that the scent has to offer is super cute and not busy! I really love the scent hotel and recommend anyone who is thinking of staying here to please, stay here. You will not be disappointed.

This place has the wow factor ⭐️ we had a suite which is amazing , clean with lots of little personal touches , we have stayed in a few hotels but this is my absolute favourite . The food is also fabulous as my brecky photo 😋 so much choice lovely presentation . All staff are polite and friendly , nothing too much trouble . The sun beds are comfy and beach soft sand around the front of the hotel . 25 mins walk to fisherman’s village which is a must do . Lots of cheap eateries around and mini market type shops for anything you may need . All in all perfect 👌

This is our second stay at this secret gem. 100/100. Perfect in every way. The staff are amazing nothing is a problem. Nina on reception is most welcoming. The breakfast is so good, you want more and more. We have travelled the world, stayed in 4/5* hotels there is no difference in this little Gem. All the staff are so attentive. If you have a choice DO IT. Cannot wait to return. Thank you the SCENT HOTEL for making our stay memorable

The scent is a small classy, boutique hotel with all the amenities of a bigger hotel with less people and more privacy. Although a bit more expensive, they went the extra mile for us. We had a late flight on the day of our check-out. They securely stored our bags, allowed us to use the pool and beach and even provided us with a room to shower before our flight! Very impressive customer centric experience.

I came here on the 16th December with my whole family for a month, 13 of us all together, we had 7 rooms, All beautifully decorated I might add. The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I have ever had and I travel a lot! All the staff were exceptional. We got to know them all personally and they couldn’t have looked after us better, especially my 84 year old grandmother, she left with the biggest smile on her face, as did we all, they treated us all like their own family :) lunch and dinner was equally as amazing as breakfast. We also dined with the Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve menu which was delicious. I cannot recommend this hotel enough for either family, couples or even just on your own! Perfect place to stay! Saying all that please don’t book this time next year as we are all coming back 😂 Thank you to all the staff at The Scent Hotel, you made our special holiday one to remember!! 😍

I don’t usually write reviews but for me it was an amazing experience staying at the hotel. I went to Bangkok before and wasn’t enjoying it as I felt the people were arrogant but as soon as we got here everyone was so nice and welcoming. The food and drinks are amazing and honestly couldn’t say a bad word also speak really good English. Also the smell of the hotel is so nice! Thankyou to all the staff who made my experience so special.

Just returned from a 12 night stay at this wonderful hotel. Our room had the exact view shown in the picture, waking up to it every morning was awe inspiring. Overall a fantastic intimate boutique hotel which is perfect for a relaxing getaway. The breakfast was as good as we have eaten in thailand - amazing eggs benedict overlooking the beach. The pool was a very good size , not too big and not too small. The room was fantastic with a large bathroom and wondeful deep bath with seperate walk in shower. We could not fault the place but the best thing was the fantastic warm welcoming attitude off all the people working there. Everybody really made us feel at home and we are so grateful for all the help and information we received. Nothing seemed too much trouble. We would like to give a special mention to Benz and Bella who served our breakfast most mornings. They were amazing. We would be delighted to stay here again.

Lovely hotel with fantastic staff. As soon as you walk into the lobby you get a friendly loving feeling about the entire place. Sadly we only spent about 5 days here. The beach is great, not to big, but big enough for a “tropical beach feeling”. In comparison to the other populated beaches this one is so quite, no sellers nagging about asking you to buy stuff you don’t need. Rooms are clean, and A/C kept on 24/7 so you’ll never have to walk into your room and keep sweating for another 30 minutes or so. Had a lovely time.

We had an amazing stay at The Scent Hotel. The staff is more than attentive and welcoming. They are the sweetest and most adorable persons on the island! The breakfast is very good, plenty to choose from an a-la-carte menu and always included with fresh fruits, coffee/tea, fresh juice and bread. The rooms are beautiful and amazing, as well as the location right next to the beach. We rented a scooter via the hotel and explored the island, but it was a 'relief' to end every day in this small, secret world. We think this secret should be shared! Would definitely return!
