The Scent Hotel

The Scent Hotel is a boutique resort with 15 rooms located right on the beach.

Photo of The Scent Hotel True to its name, one experiences an olfactory overload on entering the hotel, with a shop off reception selling aromatic products in beautiful packaging. The decor is inspired by Southeast Asia's colonial period, with intricate floor tiles, luxuriant cottons and silks, antiques, elegant Chinese lacquered furniture and bleached wood pieces, spa-type bathrooms with copper taps and linen bathrobes. Rooms come with every amenity you'd expect, and all offer fantastic sea views. The fine-dining restaurant is on the beachfront, as is the swimming pool -- one minor quibble regarding the pool is the deckchair arrangement -- more space would be great. Special touches such as afternoon tea, classic movies screened in the tea foyer and a spa using their own aromatic products make The Scent unbeatable if within your price range. You'll find it located between Prana Resort and Punpreeda, on the sea side of the road.
