If you're looking for a Thai-themed property with big rooms and friendly staff, you could do much worse than at the White House – plus the beach is great out front.

Staff at White House told us that theirs was the first hotel on Choeng Mon, and while we're not sure if that was really the case, it does go a long way toward explaining their terrific gardens. Hung with lanterns, they tower above the narrow pathway that runs between the streetside reception and the beachside restaurant and pool, lined with the best lodging offerings the White House can make.

Dated but spacious rooms.

The exteriors are loosely inspired by traditional wooden Thai houses intermingled with Khmer artistry – the owner is a Khmer/Angkor nut and is responsible for the Angkorian monstrosity going in on Ko Pha Ngan beside Blue Hill – with carved nagas and other statuary deposited through the resort's grounds.

Rooms are oversized and come with all the standards you'd expect of a resort of this class. They're all air-con with TV, fridge, minibar and WiFi and the hot-water bathrooms are likewise oversized. Thanks in part to the compactness of the block, but also due to the gardens, the outlook from the rooms is very limited and as all the rooms are behind the beachside restaurant and small swimming pool, if you're after a seaview, you'll be needing to look elsewhere. The luxury rooms feature Khmer pillars, which fit into a luxury hotel about as well as you'd expect them to.

Not the biggest pool, but close to the beach.

Overall, we liked the gardens and the appearance of the rooms from the outside was attractive, but inside they struck us as a bit cheesy, though that could just be us. If you want something even more "traditional" and spendy, consider the Imperial Boat House just up the road from here, where the suites are in real rice barges (and the huge pool is boat shaped). Sala Samui likewise offers a big jump up in standards – and prices. Neighbouring Choeng Mon Hotel and PS Villa/Thana Villa are poor alternatives to here. Shop online for a competitive rate.
