Canada’s Getting Its First Unique Budget-Friendly Pod Hotel In Whistler

Travel & Outdoors

If you’ve ever stayed in a hostel, you know that privacy can be a bit hard to come by at times.

That’s why when Jelena and Russell King went on a whirlwind of travel, they came up with the idea of Pangea.

It’s not a hostel, but it’s not a hotel either. It ranges in-between, providing people with “proximity and privacy without the price tag.”

Pangea is the first of its kind in Whistler. It’s located right in the heart of Whistler Village, so visitors don’t have to worry about missing out on any of the sights.

It was named after the ‘super-continent’ land mass that was the Earth before it broke up into different continents. The Kings decided to use it a symbolization of “throwback to the times when the world was one, because Pangea is intended to be a single home – a ‘super home’ for all travellers.”

Pangea Pods

Instead of shared rooms, each visitor gets a pod with a double bed, memory foam mattresses and luxury linens. The pods are private cabins that are separated by curtains and wooden walls. There are 88 pods in total, spread out across 8 suites.

The bathroom ratio per suite of eight pods is 4:1, so you don’t have to worry about waiting in line. The bathrooms are broken down into four components – a changing room, a shower, washrooms, and vanities.

There’s also built-in speakers, so you can jam out while showering (One-man dance party? Yes, please.)

Guests must be at least 18 years old to stay at Pangea, and the accommodation includes all-female suites.
