Wouldn't call it "luxury"
Don't get me wrong this place was nice and it was a very unique experience, but I wouldn't say it is a "luxury hotel". The views were nice, the staff were really friendly, the pods are cool, and the food was great, but I can name a number of things that could do with improvement and that don't make this place what I would call luxurious: - The pods are a 15min walk from reception all uphill and they don't offer any other means to get you there. - There aren't any formal pathways, just mud tracks. - There aren't any lights to help navigate your way from reception/restaurant to the pods. They give you head torches. - The 'spa' consists of a tiny sauna and bath both outdoors. - You can't control the temperature of your pod. This has to be done by calling reception for them to turn this up/down/on/off (we asked for the aircon to be turned off several times, but it never was and we gave up in the end). - There's no Wi-Fi in the pods.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
This was one of the most exceptional experiences I have ever had. The drive up the mountain was a bit nerve wracking, however, the setting was surreal. The accommodations were clean, rustic elegance. The view was sublime and the food was exquisite. There are many, many summer and winter activities to participate in. This place is worth traveling across the ocean to stay at!

A Swiss Gem
Whitepod was amazing. We absolutely loved our stay. There are trails directly behind the pods, which are perfect for a hike or run. The restaurant is also phenomenal. Two big thumbs up!
