Thinking about traveling to Switzerland for a ski vacation this winter? You like the unusual? You should consider The Whitepod Resort in Bretaye, Switzerland. Whitepod is not just another hotel, it’s a unique and ecological resort. Whitepod is an extraordinary concept designed to be in harmony with the surrounding environment whilst still benefiting from a luxurious and comfortable habitat.
Nestled in the charming village of Les Cerniers, surrounded by a blanket of glistening white snow and panoramic mountain views, the 24-room luxury boutique hotel offers an unforgettable experience in the heart of the Swiss Alps. The pods are five eight-foot-high white geodesic-dome tents that are perched 5,600 feet up a mountain in the Switzerland Alps. The tents are accessible only by foot or on skis. They have no plumbing or electricity, but each has a highly efficient wood stove and is grouped around a restored 19th-century farmhouse that has a solar shower and generator-powered electricity for just a few hours each day.
