Jewel Of Japan


Abode2 talks to The Luxe Nomad to explore what accommodation can match the stunning ski opportunities that Niseko, Japan has to offer.

For those in the know, Japan offers some of the best powder ski opportunities across the globe. Due to frequent snow fall across the mountains of Hokkaido, the island is one of the most popular ski destinations and for those looking for a luxurious way to experience of the best of the world’s best snow, there is Niseko.

With a ski season running from December-April and average snow of 15m+ Niseko Ski Resort is officially Japan’s number one snow resort, famous for its wide-open powder bowls, tree runs and stunning views.

With a total of 105 rooms that consist of studios, suites, and penthouses, Skye Niseko is located at the base of the King Pair Lift. True ski-in ski-out, it's one of the most unique properties in Niseko. Its architecture is almost curvy, following certain flows. Each apartment is beautifully furnished with attention to all the detailing. Each room has been designed to allow plenty of living space. The larger rooms have their own laundry facilities and larger kitchen. The 2+ Bedroom apartments benefit from  en-suite bathrooms and the 3+ Bedroom have designed fireplaces in the living room. At the top of the building, 4 penthouses -- three 4-bedroom and one 3-bedroom -- crown the property, each with its own dedicated fire pits and outdoor onsens. Depending on the location, views vary from static views of Mt. Yotei to dynamic views of the slopes.

Skye Niseko has public and private onsen baths and the Ryoko Spa. Also home to other luxury ski holiday must enjoys such as the Kumo restaurant, ski valet service & in-house rental, and 24-hour gym onsite. Opened in 2018, it has been awarded Top 3 World's Best New Ski Hotels for 2019 by the world ski awards.

On the northeastern side of Mount Annupuri, you will find Park Hyatt Niseko Hanazono taking full advantage of stunning views across the Annupuri ranges and Mount Yotei. 100 guest rooms including nine suites with private semi-outdoor onsen baths, more than 80 residences – housed in four separate buildings, all with ski-in/ski-out convenience and connected at arrival level make up the hotel's wide range of accommodation. Each guest room feature a large master bedroom, separate living room, generous walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom with rain shower and soaking bathtub. The rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows allowing guests to enjoy the amazing views. Global connoisseurs will appreciate pristine wilderness underscored by a sense of calm, matched with the signature sophistication of the Park Hyatt brand of carefully curated art, cuisine, and contemporary design.

Early last year a brand-new ski-in ski-out hotel designed by Melbourne’s BAR Studio in conjunction with Nikken Sekkei and Fujita Corporation. The hotel also houses a range of facilities includes 11 restaurants, lounges, and bars including private dining, wine cellars, spa, onsen, Health Club, a 25m indoor pool, and karaoke. Bookings include a Ski Valet Service (with rentals and lessons), exclusive access to the Hanazono Golf course, and a kid-friendly with Camp Hyatt activities and services.

Soseki is a two-story, 6-bedroom home furnished with Japanese finishes and Italian furniture. Guests can glimpse the impressive Mt. Yotei views from every room, as they move to the living area to gather around the balcony fireplace to times spent unwinding from a day on the slopes on the Natuzzi sofas. Premium facilities give the house an extra polish from the kitchen's walnut finish and ceramic counter, as well as a Miele oven and microwave, and a full-size dishwasher. There is plenty of spaces to gather in Soseki. A media room with surround sound movies using a Bose theatre system can be found on the top floor while a sleek gas fireplace is the centerpiece of a second living area. A very generous 30 square meter balcony stretches the full width of the building.

There is a private Spa room with Japanese onsen bathing made of sweet cypress wood. The chalet comes with a single car garage, heated driveway, study, and ski room. Soseki offers 6 ensuite bedrooms: 2 master bedrooms, 2 guestrooms, a bunk room, and a tatami room.
