The flights are booked to spend Christmas and New Years in Thailand – I can’t wait!!

We will be staying with my mom in the Northern part of Thailand before heading to the lovely island Koh Samui. Here I have done some research and found an amazing little boutique hotel with only 14 suites. We will be spending New Years in a beautiful resort not surrounded by too many tourists.

One thing to remember when booking a resort over New Years Eve – is that most hotels and resorts have a compulsory NYE Galla dinner. Which in some instances have prices which even top high end European restaurants – so remember to read the small writing as well and make sure that this is the way you want to spend your new years ….

The Scent Hotel

The interior is to reflect a colonial style with three different themed suites; Thai Colonial, Chinese Colonial and European Colonial.

I would normally choose something which is true to the county’s culture and style, but I think they have interpreted this style very well and it works with the natural tones, woods and canvas fabrics and hammocks. As well as including the beach and surrounding nature as part of the exterior architecture and public areas you truly get the island experience.

I’ll let the images say the rest – I do hope to give you an update after my stay, until then I look forward to celebrating my near year in this calm and charming environment.
