Canada’s first pod accommodation concept to open in Whistler, BC, 2018

In April 2018, Whistler will welcome Pangea Pod Hotel – a visionary property situated in the centre of the pedestrian village. Designed for the solo traveller seeking a boutique hotel feel, impressive design and a prime location at an affordable price-point, Pangea is set to fill Whistler’s void between hostels and hotels.

Pangea will feature a series of custom suites housing a total of 88 private sleeping pods. Each boutique pod will be lined in wood and outfitted with a memory foam double mattress and high-end linens. They’ll also be equipped with LED lights, multiple charging points (including USB ports) and fan for ventilation and white noise. There’s a place for everything, with a lockable cabinet for valuables, hangers and hooks for clothes, and a storage area for luggage. Mirrors and artwork lend a personal touch, while curtains provide a fundamental level of privacy.

Perhaps one of the most ground-breaking design aspects of Pangea is its modular bathroom concept. Unconventional thinking led to conventional bathrooms being separated into four individually accessed components: spa-like showers, washrooms, vanities, and changing rooms. More than 60 of these bathroom components are spread among Pangea’s suites.

While the pod suites encourage a tranquil ambiance, Pangea’s guests will relish the lively atmosphere in The Living Room, Pangea’s hub featuring its café, lounge and bar. Guests can also head to The Patio, Pangea’s rooftop bar, for incredible views and a unique outdoor experience. The Toy Box, a meticulously designed open-plan gear area, will offer secure storage for sporting equipment and accessories.
