On the road
A personalised road trip experience. A fleet of electric vans turn into bedrooms connected to a network of cabins across Switzerland.
A modern take on the traditional Stuga. Individual cabins nestled in the heart of a preserved forest. Each cabin can host up 5 guests in a luxury Nordic design with all necessary amenities. Authentic Nordic food & outdoor activities complete this one-of-a-kind experience.
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 Swiss Cabins 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.
