Whitepod – Eco-luxury hotel and alpine experience

“Whitepod is the ultimate mountain escape for nature lovers, adventure seekers and romantic getaways.”

Wow, just wow!

I know here in the Southern Hemisphere we are enjoying the Summer months but these super luxurious igloo inspired pods would totally make you want to head into the frozen, snow covered Swiss mountains! I can’t quite remember how I stumbled across this website but I had to book mark it to share with you all.

Located at 1400 m above sea level, in a private ski area, at the foot of the Dents du Midi, a multi-summited mountain situated in the Chablais Alps in Switzerland, are these 15 luxurious and comfortable large domes were designed to be in total harmony with the surrounding environment and Whitepod was awarded the World Prize for Sustainable Tourism in 2005.

I think the photos speak for themselves…

Priced from 360-590 Swiss Francs ($450-$755NZD) a stay here would be a night to remember. But don’t forget to bring your own  head lamp, snowshoes, walking sticks, backpack and shoe spikes!

Check out the website for more stunning photos and details.

Whitepod is an entire resort made up of:

  • The pod camp –with 15 large pods
  • The Pod-house – at the centre of the pods – which includes the breakfast room, the relaxation area and the bar
  • The chalet Les Cerniers, a traditional wooden chalet which serves as base-camp for the whole resort (reception) and offers an inventive and refined cuisine in its new restaurant
  • 7km of ski slopes with private ski lifts
  • The Alpage de Chindonne, an authentic mountain lodge, which can accommodate up to 80 guests in rooms or dormitories, with its traditional Swiss restaurant (open on request only in the winter)
