This small and welcoming lodge attracts a high number of repeat guests who can't resist its friendly charm. Exclusive to us in the UK market, White Horse Residence boasts tropical, perfectly kept gardens which surround the guest rooms, dining area and pool, trailing off towards the sandy beach in the distance. The views here are second to none, best enjoyed from the gardens at sunset.
Its elevated location overlooking the Atlantic makes it an ideal choice for a romantic getaway. The homely feel and personal touches are White Horse Residence's main charm, and we're sure you'll find a friendly welcome.
Ultimate comfort and relaxation
The eight guest rooms can be found dotted throughout the gardens and in the main building, and although not air-conditioned, they remain cool due to their high ceilings and rotunda style. A self-contained two-bedroom lodge is ideal for a family or group of friends, although no children under the age of 12 are permitted. As an eco-friendly property, water is heated using solar power.
An inviting pool and restaurant area both offer wonderful vistas towards the unspoilt beach, and upon first entering the African-inspired reception area, you’re immediately drawn through to the inviting terrace area beyond.
Light lunches and dinners are available at White Horse; although an informal affair, all meals are freshly prepared, with dishes chosen from a three-course table d’hote menu, using local ingredients including freshly caught fish from Tanji. Holidays are sold on a bed and breakfast basis, although you are likely to take most of your meals in the hotel due to its location away from main resort areas.
Spend time on the beach or beyond
The unspoilt beach below can be reached after a five-minute walk along an uneven track – here you will find a local beach bar and very little else, with sand stretching as far as the eye can see, only interrupted by the odd fisherman and birdlife.
A variety of excursions can be arranged from this property for an additional charge, using the hotel’s own vehicles, boats and guides. If relaxation is what you prefer, a massage or manicure can be arranged in the small, open-air beauty parlour.
Although there will be no representative visiting the property and our standard excursion programme will not apply, you will be well looked after by your host and local activities can be booked directly with the property.
