Pangea Pod Hotel to Open in Whistler, BC

WHISTLER, BC—The Pangea Pod Hotel is scheduled to open here next April. It will be Canada’s first pod accommodation concept, according to the company.

Designed to have a boutique feel, the property is expected to fill the void in the town between hostels and hotels. 

Pangea will have custom suites with a total of 88 private sleeping pods. Each 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 a fan for ventilation and white noise.

The rooms also will have modular bathrooms separated into four individually accessible components: spa-like showers, washrooms, vanities and changing rooms. More than 60 of these bathroom components will be spread throughout Pangea’s suites.

Pangea also will have F&B concepts like The Living Room—a hub including a café, a lounge and a bar—and The Patio, a rooftop bar. Another amenity available will be The Toy Box, an open-plan ski gear area that will offer storage for equipment.
