Whitepod Eco-Luxury Hotel in Switzerland

Whitepod offers a highly exclusive Alpine experience. A hi-tech eco camp for just 30 guests situated over 1700m high in the Swiss Alps, offering the ultimate in luxury and adventure.

Whitepod offers a high-tech solution to the challenge of creating a different, eco-friendly way of catching up with yourself, in the natural beauty of the Swiss alps both in Winter – and SUMMER ! The resort has left little mark on the environment, but made a great mark in eco tourism – Winning the Responsible Tourism Award for Innovation.

The 15 geodesic dome pods that make up Whitepod have been equipped with traditional furnishings and high quality insulation, which coupled with a simple wood burning stove keeps you comfortably warm in winter and cool in summer. Each pod sleeps up to 4 and is individually decorated. It contains a fully equipped bathroom with shower, toilet and sink, directly hooked up to a private water source. The pods are lit by lanterns. Covered with white canvas in the winter and green in the summer, they blend perfectly into the surrounding landscape.

The main chalet houses the dining and spa facilities.

Far from the crowds, you have access to a private ski run with 3 lifts and 7km of pistes as well as forests and walks on snowshoe. All this outdoor effort builds up an appetite and the resident chef provides 2 nightly menus, one with traditionally hearty Swiss mountain food such as Raclette and Fondue, the other with lighter dishes using locally sourced ingredients.

Such is the integration with the community, that Whitepod even runs a small grocery store for villagers.

“Whitepod is inspired by a desire to create a haven of beauty and tranquility where guests can restore tired bodies and jaded spirits in the knowledge that their presence will bear little if no impact at all on the surrounding environment.”

Winter or Summer – appreciate nature while treading lightly on the beautiful the alpine landscape. The Swiss adventure resort won the World Prize for Sustainable Tourism in 2005.
