November 1, 2010 by

Whitepod hotel is a 24-room, 5-star, luxury boutique hotel in Bretaye, Switzerland.

Nestled in the charming village of Les Cerniers, surrounded by a blanket of glistening white snow and panoramic mountain views, Whitepod offers an unforgettable experience in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Whitepod is a unique concept designed to be in harmony with the surrounding environment whilst still benefitting from a luxurious and comfortable habitat.

The resort provides an alternative means to explore the Swiss Alps. With the use of the pods (dome shaped tents), pitched on wooden platforms, Whitepod offers low impact accommodations in an untouched and pristine alpine environment. Isolated from all urban pollution, the mountain region lends itself beautifully to such an eco-tourism development.

A pod is a geodesic structure anchored on wooden platforms, and naturally isolated from the cold and the snow – all pods are equipped with wood-burning stoves, organic luxury bedding and full services bathrooms.

At the center of the 15 pods, stands a charming early 1800s wooden chalet where guests meet for breakfast in the morning or gather in the evening around its central fireplace for evening drinks and socializing.
