Our story

The adventure started in 2006 with the acquisition of Whitepod in the heart of the Swiss Valais. It took six years to refurbish the resort, investing in both people & property in order to bring to life our vision of an unforgettable guest experience backed by impeccable service.

Following the development of the Swisscabins Resort and the recent opening of the Peanut Lodge & Winstub, the Definitely Different Group embarks on a journey to fundamentally alter the hospitality industry.

We are determined to build sustainable destinations by revitalising & restoring places of interest, developing the local economy by closely collaborating with all stakeholders, and deploying an eco-responsible approach to all aspects of our projects.
