        Perfect stay for beach holiday with family.”

        everything we need in one place

        We enjoyed a week a relaxed beach holiday in this hotel. The location is perfect: Coming from the street with restaurants and small shops, we enter the hotel area and immediately feel the quite and relaxed atmosphere. With all the trees, it feels a bit like in a jungle. Several small buildings, usually containing four guest rooms, are distributed on the area with lots of trees and plants. Continuing straight on, we pass the outside swimming pool and the adjacent outside restaurant (protected from sun/rain by a roof). Just behind it, we find the beach. From the restaurant we can see the pool and the beach, so kids can play there while parents still enjoy there breakfast. In the evening, the restaurant will even place some tables directly on the beach. The room itself was big and clean. Service good and friendly. Air condition and fan available. One thing the hotel might want to improve is the bathroom: The sink on the floor emits an awful smell. We simply fixed it by "sealing" it with some paper during our stay. If we come back to Koh Samui, we will come back to the White House!

        Great Restaurant and beach access

        I read reports beforehand and after staying in some absolutely truely amazing accomodation on our trip I was a little scared with what to expect at the White House. Look it's no 5 star luxury resort but our room had plenty of light, was large, comfortable and clean, the bathroom was basic but had everything you need and was also large and clean. TV had very limited channels (think only 4 worked which was a pain given we wanted to watch some of the olympics at night). Bed was really comfortable. Pool is very disappointing but it again is adequate and clean. The staff were really lovely and helpful. Its in a great position with 7/11 stores and money changers within 200 metres. The Restaurant food was exceptional - especially the ribs and since we had been in Koh Samui for 15 days and eaten in a lot of places this is a massive compliment. Beach area is good with lots of beds and umbrellas and a much better option than the pool. The staff have really taken the best care they can of the hotel and grounds given its age. Please note stairs to the second floor rooms are super steep so if you have an injury make sure you are on the ground floor. I thought the White House was acceptable for what I paid and I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't as bad as previous reports on this site.

        I love White House Hotel, Koh Samui, Thailand”

        *Excellent service and good courtesy from the staff yet very friendly.
        *Bathtub stale was very smelly. *There was no safe box at the reception counter.

        Me and my wife have the most memorable experience staying at White House Hotel where it seems to meet most of our expectation. We really enjoy our holiday every single moment. The location of the hotel was so strategic. The beach was well maintained and clean. We felt very safe and secure where they provided good security measurement. The breakfast food was nice and tasty. Price for the food was reasonable as it was worth for money. Really love their Thai cuisine. The hotel provided shuttle service to the airport with no cost at all. I was late a day to Koh Samui but they take good care of my wife who arrived there a day earlier before me. We were cut off by our communication cellphone due to coverage matters and the reception staff help out by providing free calls and get me connected with my wife. As what Arnold Swezernagger in Terminator used to said....I`ll be back!!!

        My youngest son William and I visited my elder son Edward who lives and works in Bophut, Koh Samui. We were there for 2 weeks in June and had a perfect holiday. The beach location of the traditionally styled White House Hotel was idyllic, the staff were warm, friendly and welcoming from start to finish. Our room was spacious, well equipped with large comfortable beds, crisp white cotton sheets and bath towels fresh every day and a very efficient air conditioning system. My husband could not join me this year due to work commitments but I know he would love this hotel and we hope to return there together next year. This hotel was hightly recommended to me by my first husband, Edward's father who stayed there in May this year. My daughter has also styed there end June/early July and we all had the same positive experience.

        none

        We (My wife, our 1.4 boy and myself) came to Kho Samui after a dreamlike 2 weeks in Phuket, Kho Phi Phi and Railay beach (Krabi province). We wanted a little busier place and arrived in Chaweng beach that turned to be not far from a nightmare (too crowded, too commercialized and many angry un-nice people). Our escape was Choengmon beach at the White house hotel. We came straight to heaven! This awesome affordable hotel was like a home to us, with "the Orchid" restaurant just across the street (you might wait a while before you get the food. definitely worth waiting). We will definitely come back!

        Excellent value, located on the beautiful Choengmon Beach.
        Nothing!!

        Excellent value for money. Our first visit to the White House and would strongley recommend to any visitor to Samui. The Hotel is located directly on the beach with sunbeds and umbrellas provided. The food in the restaurant was excellent, bed and breakfast fantastic value to suit all tastes. The staff went out of their way to give excellent customer service. The restaurant was set up on the beach every evening and was extremely romantic. Complimentary tea and biscuits or fresh fruit was delivered to the room each afternoon which was a lovely gesture and very welcome after a hard day sunbathing.

        I love this hotel, I will stay again”

        Great location, lots of restaurants and shopping nearby, including 2 Family Marts and a 7-11. It is too far from the city center to walk, but it's easy to find a taxy or they will call one for you. Cool rooms, I love the hidden away feel of each building. Excellent and fast laundry service. The restaurant is really good with great service and the breakfast is varied and tasty. Also every day they left hot tea and a snack in my room (exclusive suite, not sure if the cheaper rooms got it too). It's not perfect though. The internet was terribly slow much of the time, my free roaming on T-Mobile (capped at 128k) seemed faster some of the time. Also my first 2 days I got a free copy of the Bangkok Post, after that I didn't. I don't know if I got the 2 on accident or if I didn't get the rest on accident, but either way not a big deal. Also the rainfall style shower seemed to be a bit clogged, but honestly I cared so little I never bothered letting them know. Lastly the TV channels were really limited, with only HBO and BBC News in English. Not a big deal since I didn't watch a lot of TV but it could matter if it's rainy while you're there. Every single person who worked there was really nice and friendly. I've worked customer service and I'd like to think I'm pretty good at spotting fake friendliness, but I never got that feeling here. Unless you want to be in the heart of the action I can't recommend White House enough.

        good service, nice beach and big rooms
        a bit old luxury, dark rooms

        Staying at White House was a pleasant sruprise given the fair price of the room. The hotel is a bit of old luxury but the rooms were very big and confortable, even though a bit dark. I liked the convenient access to the nice smal beach and nice view to the beach from the breakfast restaurant. The beach is very nice white sand and not too crowded. Wifi was working well in the room and for free, which is a benefit. Very short distance form the airport and Chaweng's shopping facilities.

        Stayed for our fourth time in February as part of a 4 hotel stay to Koh Phangan and Koh Samui and enjoyed our stay again. Beach is great and the menu and food served in the beach restaurant was much improved from previous visits and competitively priced to the numerous other eating places in the close vicinity. Nan and the restaurant staff are very pleasant and there is a good atmosphere in the place. Many thanks for our numerous massages and facials. Street market on a Wednesday evening is great and will be back next year

        nice location for samui close to airport”

        choeng mon is one of the nicer beaches in samui

        the white house is central to choeng mon beach which is fairly busy with the deck chairs, and (friendly,happy) hawkers, and jetskis, boats and canoes, and people having lots of fun, fireworks at night etc. we had just arrived from quiet koh phangan so preferred the quieter ends of the beach, one end completely deserted except for one beautiful shade tree and the other end with a couple of lower key bungalows and restaurants, and a little island to walk across to at low tide. nevertheless the whitehouse has very comfortable hotel style rooms with a lovely gardened central path between reception on the road and the pool and restaurant on the beach. the pool isnt large but you can swim in the ocean, although it can get a little mucky after the rain stirs the bottom up a bit. the rooms are spacious and well appointed but lack an outside verandah. the clientelle is mostly russian or european and the library reflects this also. the internet is accessible at all times which is a bonus. there is a chinese/thai influence in the decor and beautiful artwork and sculptures throughout. there is a mustiness in the air probably given the age of the place along with the damp, and they fog for mosquitoes quite often. in the junior suite we had daily papers and afternoon tea which was a nice touch, and we were also very close to the front pool, restaurant, beach area.

        Corteous & friendly staff. Beautiful gardens, good food and right on the beach.

        we chose cheongmon beach because it is away from the main tourist strip of chewang but still offered a good selection of beach restaurants & shopping. it's only about 10 minutes from the busy chaweng but so much quieter. we chose the white house hotel because of location and price and were not disappointed. while the rooms could use a make-over, they were clean,quiet and serviced daily. the shower went from hot to cold & back again frequently but there was plenty of water pressure. the bathroom does need updating but it is spacious. air-con worked well and the bed & furnishings were good. the staff were great and most spoke adequate english. breakfast was included with a very good selection of hot & cold dishes. the pool is large & very clean. the gardens are a delight. there are very comfortable sun lounges for use on the beach and it's not difficult to attract the attention of staff to order food and drinks. we found the guests to be of mature age, mostly russian & french and some with children. it was the beginning of the "off season" so the place was not busy and we found our stay everything we wanted. relaxing & enjoyable. we would stay there again.

The staff is very nice and accommodating and will help you with any information. The rooms are basic, with good internet service, but no English channels this time when we were here.

        The White House hotel is just right for us. I love the quiet, small town with adequate restaurants. Not a lot of shopping in the town, but vendors on the beach. The staff is very nice and accommodating and will help you with any information. The rooms are basic, with good internet service, but no English channels this time when we were here. Thank goodness we took some DVDs. Small, but great beach with swimming area right in front.

        A Tropical Feeling and Great Service”

        Friendly and informative staff, a variety of food options for a continental breakfast, serene atmosphere within the resort, clean rooms and grounds.

        the resort is right on choeng mon beach and is a scooter or taxi ride away from chaweng beach, if you really want to experience a busier beach environment or do some major souvenir shopping. the resort grounds are well kept and are full of tropical plants and trees right down the lane and up into your room. housekeeping daily. at the time the hot tub was not up and running, but the pool was well maintained which offered an alternative for small children who could swim safely while the parents lounged. the resort had a good restaurant with room service. the beach offered a sufficient number of places to eat and drink, while just to the left of the resort, on the road side, were a variety of cheaper restaurants that offered a variety of food options. a great 9 day stay for 2 families with a total of 6 teenage kids.

        Beautiful hotel”

        Beautifully decorated, nice garden, boutique, quiet.
        Low shower head in the tub, and a shower right over the toilet, but pretty typical Thailand shower.

        We wished that we could stay here for more than just one night! The hotel entrance is more like Angor Wat than White House. The hotel is really boutique and only has 40 rooms. The garden is so nicely done - walking to the room is like walking in paradise. The architect put a lot of thought into designing this place. The room was tastefully decorated too. Perfect for a quiet relaxing vacation and no loud wild parties. The staff was very friendly - we had an early flight out so they packed our breakfast to go. Would love to stay here again.

        Located in beautiful bay”

        Nice beach

        The White House Hotel is located in the Choengmon bay and is a beautiful bay, secluded but not empty but also not too busy. Plenty of restaurants on the beach and outside within walking distance of the hotel. It's also not too far away from Chaweng if you want some night time activity.

        Lovely hotel with excellent staff”

        Good and quiet location

        Very nice hotel on one of the most quiet beach of the Island. This is an ideal location to be in peace. You are on the North part of Koh Samui at only 15min maximum from the airport and same distance to Chaweng beach (main beach/street) by scotter (we really recommend to rent one). The hotel is very nice, you feel like being in the nature, with a small restaurant with an amazing sea view. The only deception is the swimming pool which is very small and and the rooms need to be refresh a bit. The staff was the best staff you met after 15days and around 6 hotels in Thailand, they even offer a free transfer to the airport.
