Whitepod Eco-Luxury Hotel
Since 2004, "Whitepod" has been proving in the Valais mountains that a hotel business, luxurious accommodation and environmental action do not have to be mutually exclusive. You will impressively experience that nature is the true luxury in your own pod.
What is a pod anyway? A pod is a unique accommodation: a geodesic (geodesy refers to the "science of measuring the earth") hemispherical tent with 40 m2 floor area, where you will find all the amenities you are used to in traditional hotel rooms: a fully equipped bathroom with toilet and shower, table and chairs, a large terrace with sun loungers and a magnificent view of the Alps. In short: A pod is your very cozy cocoon where you can really unwind far away from everyday life and surrounded by nothing but breathtaking nature.
And how does the environmental action work? The pods’ water and electricity consumption are controlled, waste is recycled and regional products are preferred. The hotel’s employees live nearby and walk to work. Traffic is strictly restricted on the premises, so as a guest you walk from the reception to your pod – that’s part of the close to nature experience here.
