THE IDEA BEHIND PANGEA
Canada’s first pod hotel
CHIC. SHARED. CENTRAL.
Proximity and privacy without the price tag. Pangea was born out of a need for a new kind of accommodation in Whistler – a place where people with a shared passion for mountain sports, travel or just life in general could meet, relax and share stories but still have their own personal space at the end of the day.
With this in mind, we created something unique – an affordable yet boutique property offering private pods that are both cozy and well-equipped within a chic, laid-back setting. And best of all, we put it right in the heart of Whistler, a couple minutes’ stroll from the nearest gondolas.
We’re not a hotel. We’re not a hostel. We’re the best of both worlds, providing our guests the privacy and comfort of a hotel and the affordability and social vibe of a hostel. So while you can just draw back the curtain to your pod and plug into your iPad at the end of a big day on the mountains, you can also connect with other travellers over a craft beer in The Living Room or on The Rooftop Patio.
FIRST WHISTLER. THEN THE WORLD.
We’re putting all our efforts into making Pangea an unparalleled success in Whistler, and that means concentrating on doing everything we can to make our guests have the perfect stay. Still, there’s no harm in setting your sights on bigger things. Just watch this space.
MEET THE FOUNDERS.
Pangea is the brainchild of Belgrade girl Jelena and Cape Town boy Russell. Their mutual love of travel has seen them journey to the furthest corners of the Earth, and having stayed in their fair share of hotels and hostels along the way, they’re pretty sure they know what makes a great place to stay. In case you’re interested, they met while staying at the same hostel in Prague a decade-and-a-half ago. If you see them around, say hi, but don’t ask them what they did in North Korea.
Well, you didn’t think they could do it all alone, did you?
