                  The scent of Samui”

                  Ms. A helped us book elephant sanctuary trip on Jan 2 afternoon. When we took a Grab after lunch from Central Festival, the Grab driver seemed get lost in middle of nowhere. With signal on and off along the road, I managed to get hold of hotel staff by email asking for their help. Hotel staff Ms. Nina talked to the driver and explained our itinerary to him. Thanks to her good sense, we made it to the sanctuary and had an amazing afternoon. Gratitude also goes to Mr. Us. The hotel name speaks for itself, it smells just oriental and elegant. Thank you again Ms. Nina, Ms. A, and Mr. Us.

                  I arrived at this gorgeous aroma caught my attention which I followed through an unassuming door way to this secret treasure at the waters edge. When I walked into The Scent Hotel I was greeted by two attentive smiles, a cold cloth and welcome drink. Shortly after this I was taken up to my room and noticed it wasn't the room that I had booked online, mentioned it to them and they were happy to move me across to the one I had. Once I settled in to this beautiful tranquil space I was able to unwind and take them up on their 2 for 1 massage offer, of which I enjoyed a 2hr massage to melt me into relaxation before my slipper tub bath over looking the beach, then making my way to bed. The room was perfect in every way and a exactly what I needed to complete my trip. In the morning I was able to choose from selection of delicious breakfast options. Overall I would say this is a lovely hotel. A great place to stay if you are looking for something extra special in every way.

                  A beautiful hotel in Samui that you would never miss”

                  I was in Samui and stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Everything was very nice. Extremely recommended for this hotel, the staffs are friendly and helpful. Ancient Chinese room style (the room is quite new, just their style) with the bathtub and shower. Suitable for couple or honeymoon. Breakfast is also very good. (Egg benedict). For cons, - the location is quite far from attraction and the road along the way is too dark in the night so you should have your own car. -

                  We booked for standard room through agoda, when we arrived at the hotel, we were located in a room next to construction site. The hotel receiptians was very helpful, she managed to give us an upgrade at an reasonable price, we stayed in the ground floor beach front suite, the room is spacious, tastefully decorated. Although the bathroom area layout is bit weird, but overall it's a nice room. Hotel staff at the restaurant are very nice, they always have a big smile on. This is a small hotel, but it does make you feel home, and relaxed.

                  This girl s a wonderfully romantic retreat on the north coast of Koh Samui. The food is good, the room awfully romantic, and the pool relaxing for looking and swimming. Each room is unique, with old furnishings, nice quilts, comfortable linen robes. I recommend this resort in a quiet beach as a quiet respite from the world - not quite Rhai but with great style.

                  As regular visitors to the Scent, we have completed the feedback forms and this time we saw some of our feedback had already been actioned and the staff updated us with upcoming changes to the hotel - all of which are excellent news. Some of the staff are amazing and they make the place worth going back to. Hire a car or motor bike if you don't want to rely on taxis, but there are some great restaurants close by when you can eat no more at the hotel restaurant. Hotel food is excellent, but the lebanese just 100m up the road and Ocean's 11 is well worth a visit. We will return and can highly recommend the place for couples especially.

                  Room, Location, Supper

                  Having stayed here before we were very disappointed with the breakfasts and lunch. The food is just OK but choice is limited at breakfast - no cereals?? The towels in the room definitely need to be updated and replaced and the pillows the same - lumpy foam does not make for a good nights sleep. The place itself is still lovely but some of the staff should not be in the hotel business - try hard but failing miserably or Europeans that are just not customer friendly. Sorry Scent, but you can definitely do better.

                  As frequent travellers to Samui, we have stayed at the Scent on several occassions and can highly recommend the beach front rooms. The location is perfect for the airport, Fishermans Village and Chaweng and there are some great local restaurants within walking distance from the hotel.

                  Location, beach, food

                  Peaceful and very relaxing, the Scent is situated directly on a quiet and safe beach. The sand can be sharp with coral and the sea had plenty of rocks to avoid, so not good for swimming. But the hotel pool was cool and great for cooling off.

                  Location, unique rooms

                  The scents they use in reception and in the room are wonderful and you can understand why the hotel is called the Scent. The rooms are slightly different but furnished in different styles with unique pieces. The rooms need more lighting for when you are getting ready in the evenings to go out. Inly 5 mins from Fisherman's Village and a 10 mins walk along the beach to Oceans 11 restaurant, there are plenty of choices for good restaurants if you don't want to stay in the hotel.

                  The smells, food and staff

                  The wow factor only starts after you enter the hotel, as you can easily miss the place from the road. The icecream provided on arrival was divine, as was all the food we enjoyed at the hotel. Rooms were nice and the bed comfortable, but the beachfront rooms are definitely worth the extra money, to have a private balcony over looking the islands and sea.

                  Location on the beach and the food

                  The scents they use and the icecream they greet you with are wonderful, although beware that the mosquitoes are also attracted to the smells, so keep room doors and windows closed at all times if you want a good nights sleep. The food is well worth hanging around for, but nothing is far in Koh Samui so try the Cliff and Dr Frogs for something different and the Shack in Fisherman's Village is good for steaks.

                  Character of the hotel and rooms

                  A return visit but not staying in the beachfront rooms. All the rooms are interesting and have been tastefully furnished, but they are dark. The rooms would benefit from extra lighting and somewhere for women to do hair and makeup. The beachfront rooms are definitely worth the extra. Food is excellent there and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We did struggle with mosquitoes in the room, but asked that the staff keep doors closed when they service and this seemed to help.

                  We were so lucky that it's rain a little while our stay and we did enjoy a lot the sunshine, the swimming pool and the in-front beach. The Scent Hotel was just great and met our expectation or even beyond. We definitely will consider this hotel again for our next stay in Samui.

                  Location, Rooms, Food, Staff

                  Can not recommend the place highly enough. This boutique hotel is a stunning little secret hidden in a great location close to Fisherman's Village. The staff were wonderful, nothing too much trouble and they worked very hard, always smiling. The rooms are unique and wonderfully romantic for couples - splash out and take a beachfront room for some extra luxury. The food is also great with the breakfast setting you up for a great day. The beach is small but perfect and sea safe for swimming, but hotel pool is also a centre piece of the hotel and well worth a dip. Treat yourself to a massage and the experience is complete.
