White Horse Residence - A relaxing getaway in paradise

Welcome to the smiling coast of Africa, a place where people are always smiling and welcoming, a place where nature is still preserved. If you’re looking to escape the stress of the city for a relaxing getaway in paradise come and discover the charm and authenticity of our establishment.
The hotel is ideally located in the middle of a 6km beach in a very quiet place where you can be lulled by the singing of birds and the soothing sound of the waves.

The White horse offers 6 exclusive king size bedrooms and 3 double single bedrooms with private decks, ocean views, TV with cd player, a large private pool with a well stocked bar, ocean views, and a private beach. The endless, fine white sand beach is about 150 meters (600 feet) by foot. The beautiful Atlantic ocean is generally warm and calm.

The main house sits under an impressive grass roof structure which covers the lobby, restaurant, the outdoor dinning area and business office (with free 4g WiFi connection). The large ocean view terrace around the long pool offers ample room for sunbathing and relaxing.

Whitehorse is located in the village of Batokunku – a small village by the Atlantic coast, about a fifteen minute drive south of the touristic center with many restaurants, bars and shopping opportunities. The capital of Banjul is approx. 35 km (21 miles) away and the international airport about 30 km (19 miles). Our hotel offers fee and individual transport to and from the airport.

The Pool and the Beach

The swimming pool is ideally situated in the center of the estate with a panoramic view of the sea and the vegetation.
The sunset over the sea is right in front of the pool, it’s an everyday sight.
The bar and the restaurant are located around the swimming pool
Sundeck, umbrellas and towels are at your disposal.
The landscaped garden with sea view is also very pleasant with our coconut trees, lemom trees, mango trees, solom trees…
You can also take advantage of our different massages (relaxing, aroma therapy…)

The beach is very pleasant to walk on (especially at low tide), you will be able to walk for miles with your feet in the water.
The ocean temperature is pleasant all year round and it is calm enough to swim.
This large white sandy beach has remained natural and little frequented with only a few private beaches.
Every morning you will be able to see the pelicans of Tanji pelican island going fishing in Kartong and see them coming back to their island at the end of the afternoon.

The Restaurant and Bar

The Restaurant at White Horse Residence offers delicious breakfast, lunch and dinners every day. It is beautifully set above the guest house’s pool and has stunning ocean views – best enjoyed at sunset.
