The Whitepod resort is the ultimate mountain escape for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. It is the perfect romantic getaway far from the crowds !

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 accommodation in an untouched and pristine alpine environment.

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

Each pod is decorated differently but all are extra cosy with king-size beds, organic bedding, fully serviced bathrooms and your very own wood-burning stove.

The large bay windows and your own private deck offer a stunning and very exclusive panorama of the Alps and Lake Geneva. 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.

Isolated from all urban pollution, the mountain region lends itself beautifully to such an eco-tourism development.

Only 45 minutes away from Geneva airport, Whitepod offers an unforgettable experience in the heart of the Swiss Alps.

Located at an altitude of 1700m,the Whitepod domain comprises
- 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
- the Whitepod camp, 15 geodesic-dome pods surrounding a central chalet and a spa
- the Chalet Les Cerniers, the main reception of the resort and its restaurant with a local yet refined cuisine
