The White Lotus (2021) | Ratings & Reviews

This resort-set limited series – one of the best shows of 2021 and the one everyone's talking about – sees haves and have-nots hilariously clash over a murder mystery in paradise. Jennifer Coolidge is our queen.

"Frequently uncomfortable, sometimes poetic, occasionally hilarious, and deeply idiosyncratic throughout."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"White Lotus is delightfully mean-spirited and unexpectedly big-hearted in ways that will probably polarise some audiences."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"The White Lotus leaps into a whole other gear when centering its two smartest performances... Bartlett and Coolidge are exceptional as they embrace every twisted knot of conflict inherent in their roles."


"White spins “Have a nice vacation” into both a blessing and a curse, and The White Lotus thrives in between those extremes."

"Go in expecting a pleasing, intelligent, and well-paced romp, one that definitely won't make you miss overseas travel."

Boston GlobeBoston Globe

"As serene vacations take dark turns, the series hits a bit of turbulence, leading to a rocky conclusion that doesn’t quite live up to the show’s strong start."


"Hilariously sardonic... one of the year’s best new shows."

The Globe and MailThe Globe and Mail

"One thing holds it back: It’s a social satire that might have been better as a dark, absurdist comedy."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"The essence of The White Lotus emerges through carefully chosen dynamics fleshed out between masterfully built characters."


"This is a sharp, soulful series that knows its characters in full and gets richer as it goes on. It’s vicious and a little sudsy and then, out of nowhere, sneakily uplifting."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"2021’s best, and most uncomfortable, TV show."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The White Lotus is a destination event, a safe, controlled daytrip into disquiet."


"Fitfully funny and diverting rather than compelling viewing."
