Please note that Whiteshell Inn is no longer at their old location, which used to be absolute beachfront location. When we booked with Whiteshell Inn in April 2016 for our December 2016 accomodation, the owner/manager Ismail Nasir did not tell us about their new location, so we were a little surprised and dissapointed when we were brought to their new...

Very average hotel . But good location right at the beach . We were met at the jet by a guy ( who was the only worker at the hotel chef/room service ) . Room was okish . Cabinet was disgusting with mosquitos . Washroom was ok . Clean towels and toiletry was provided . Nothing really worth mentioning ....

We did not stay in the hotel but went on half day snorkeling trip with them. It was the highlight of our holiday, went with just 5 other people on speedboat, seen 3 reefs, had lunch on sand bank and swam with dolphins! For 35$ is a must!

Habib and Sanaullah are two of the best employees they've got. They arranged surprise candlelight dinner for us at beach. They arranges snorkelling trip too which was fun, photographs I'm yet to receive though. All in...

This guesthouse was excellent. It is one of only two hotels on the bikini beach which means you can walk straight from your room to the beach in your bikini without having to cover up. They give you beach chairs and beach towels too, as well as organizing all kinds of day trips for the guests. The room was clean...

Didnt stay at the hotel but went for their Snorkeling trip and it was excellent. Professional divers accompany you into the sea and we had a great time on the speedboat sharing jokes! Prices are also very competitive so you do get a good deal.
