When it comes to a holiday getaway with the family or a summer escapade with friends, one destination automatically comes to mind, Boracay, and for good reasons, too! With its bright, white sand and breathtaking azure waters, this paradise island is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life. It offers many activities for every vacationer’s needs: relaxation for those looking for some quiet time, fun water activities and endless partying at night for the adventurous. No wonder tourists, both foreign and local, can’t get enough of the island! And when it comes to the best accommodations while on the island, there is only one location that visitors keep coming back to, White House Beach Resort.
A LOOK BACK
What started out as a family beach house in the early ‘90s that entertained visiting family and friends turned into a family-run beach resort when White House decided to open its doors to the public a few years later. Literally a “puting bahay”, it has been referred to as such when asking for directions back in the day and has stood tall long before most resorts took their place. It has long occupied one of the most serene and beautiful part of Boracay.
Today, White House has become more than just a temporary accommodation in Boracay, it has become a destination in itself. With tourists coming back and curious new souls trying it out every year and getting quality that exceeds their expectations, White House has become a reason to keep coming back.
Conveniently located on the north-western section of the beach, Station 1 (considered as the upscale section of the island), White House is everything an ideal lodging place should be.
Its prime location keeps you away from the busy part of Boracay, making way for some much-deserved peace and quiet, but it is still very much within reach of the many island happenings. And White House is mere minutes away from the world-famous white beach, giving its visitors a luxurious access to the beach and back.
CONVENIENCE AND COMFORT
After enjoying the day out either enjoying water activities like parasailing, helmet diving, and island hopping or island activities like ATV driving, you can go home to any of White House’s three family rooms, 16 guest rooms, and four cabanas, all fully air-conditioned and equipped with a hot and cold shower, mini bar, and Wi-Fi access. Relaxing in any of their comfortable beds is the perfect way to rest after a weary day outside!
If you’ve grown tired of the beach and simply want a hassle-free dip, head on down to the pool area. There you can enjoy a nice, relaxing dip minus the crowd!
Step out and bask in the sun at the popular White House Lounge. Get a tan or simply just lounge and enjoy the warm sun. Not only that, but the lounge gives you full access and view of the beach, so if you want to witness a magnificent sunset, this is the place to be. At night, this lounge transforms into a If there is another thing that Boracay is known for aside from its pristine beach, it’s the awesome parties that can rival Miami and Ibiza.
You need not travel far for the freshest, most delectable dining experience in the whole of Boracay. White House’s Station Juan Café offers a delicious spread from traditional Filipino and international cuisine that cater to even the most discriminate palate.
Enjoy their famous Panizza baked to perfection while breathing in the island’s refreshing sea breeze. Have a bite of the freshest seafood fare cooked with a twist like their Almond Crusted Lapu-lapu and Oyster Rockafellar. Or taste of their succulent Conchinillo while enjoying the breathtaking view of the horizon and you’ll keep coming back for more.
Hospitality is one thing that islanders are known for and the staff here are full of it. Immediately upon entering the door you’ll be welcomed by their warm smiles and polite greetings. Not only that but they’ll make sure that your whole stay will be as pleasant as possible.
With its prime location, great food, and unparalleled service it’s no wonder that people keep coming back. After all, staying in White House means more than just temporary lodgings in Boracay, it’s your own private beach house in paradise.
