Boutique rooms in relaxing oasis
Fantastic boutique experience. Great staff and service. Unfortunately restaurant and services very expensive. Would have loved to dine there in evening's as included a la carte breakfasts were great. Nearby restaurants very good and reasonably priced.

Avoid like the plague
We arrived and checked out within 15 minutes. Hotel also refused to give any refund even though we didn’t want to stay there. Far better off paying an extra £50 a night and staying somewhere decent like the Anantara Lawana. Rooms are smaller than described, old and tired. Not particularly clean and poor service. Every room looks over the other and are completely glass fronted. Rooms on the bottom floor, people in the pool look directly in your window. Phone in the room can’t dial out. The beach is tiny and can fit about two sun beds. Restaurant was average. Pool wasn’t very clean, no proper sun beds round the pool, just weird chairs.

Quick stay
It was ok, a little out of the way. The food was expansive compare to the local area but staff was friendly. Small hotel and had trouble getting our room ready on time. Best part is the beach, it’s right beside the hotel and not a lot of people

Great relaxing stay!
My husband and I were on our belated honeymoon and our 4 nights at the Scent was wonderful! From the moment we walked in the door to our check out, the staff was nothing but lovely. We were happy with our initial room, but there was one with a better view of the ocean, and they were competently accommodating when we requested to move. The breakfast each morning was SO good, they offer a happy hour, and lunch/dinner menus were great. We spent a bulk of the time exploring the island, but also spent a decent amount of time relaxing in the pool and on the beach bc it was so perfect. I personally liked the lunch menu over the dinner menu, but that is probably my personal preference. While on the beach we down to the pier and found a really lovely (inexpensive/more local) restaurant on the way. There was also a 711 and other mart near by for a few items we needed to pick up. At first we thought the transport they provided was a bit expensive, but quickly learned that was the standard for the island and having the desk manage contacting any ride we needed was helpful. They also helped us plan our snorkeling trip which was also great! The massages were worth it (we each did two!) and overall, a perfect end to our trip!! The area is a bit more secluded - but still close enough to anywhere you want to go.

Double booked room, no solution offered.
They over booked and our room with balcony was taken, staff member showed us a basic room and was silent when I showed her my booking in writing with balcony/patio, beach front. Appalling people skills....

Incredible place to stay
It was mostly perfect. Visually, it’s the best hotel I’ve ever stayed at... the private beach, the decor and the rooms are mind blowing. The food is gorgeous and the breakfast is delicious, the little biscuits at afternoon time is a lovely addition. There were some issues with the service (but really minor) and everyone is very very friendly and made us feel really welcome. We will definitely be back. It’s about 10 mins to the fisherman’s walking street Which is the best part of samui in my opinion!

Wonderful welcome by Pan at reception, who continued to be excellent throughout our stay, always helpful and curious. In fact all the staff were excellent the hotel had a wonderful calming effect with relaxing music and essential oils burning. The breakfast was amazing and the view at breakfast and dinner beautiful

Good 6.0
Not what I had expected
This is a great small hotel, with quirky design, most rooms overlook each other and out towards the pool and the sea, as such lack privacy. The staff are very friendly and helpful - the Food pricing is reasonable and the drinks a little over priced. The main negatives would be 1. Relatively isolated so need transport to go any place 2. The noise from the traffic which runs along the back of the hotel rooms is noisy during the day but quiet overnight and starts up again around 7am 3. The building site next door which operates from 0900-1700 creates a constant noise throughout the day I would expect for around GBP100 per night for the Hotel to be better set up! Just as well I had only booked for the one night.

Finally a hotel with some real character!
I really liked the uniqueness of this place. It was nicely arranged and finished with lots of nice antique touches. The restaurants food was excellent with a lot of things homemade which made a huge difference. However, the Thai food didn't quite hit the spot for me, especially given the price.

Beautiful, friendly and perfect for a honeymoon
The hotel is fantastic and the service was even better. My wife and I were there on our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Even though they had some renovations going on during the day, the staff were quick to offer services that would make up for it as well. All in all this is exactly the place we were looking for when thinking about a quiet romantic hotel for our stay.
