#1 AYA Niseko
Step into AYA Niseko’s contemporary atmosphere in awe. With the majestic view in sight — visible from the bedrooms and onsens — you’re in for a treat. AYA Niseko makes your ski experience as convenient as possible with its ski valet and ski-in-ski-out concept. Inside the penthouses, get comfortable with heated floorings and spacious rooms — did we mention the stunning view?
Extras: The Vale Bar & Grill next door is known to serve the best beers on the mountain, complemented with a menu of over a dozen local and seasonal beers on tap.
The thick blanket of snow might be jarring for snowploughs, but not for skiers. The Vale has quick dry boot room and ski racks for your convenience. But if you’re too punched out for the outdoors, amuse yourself with some soft jazz with the provisioned iPod docking station and soak in the private balcony onsen overlooking Mount Yotei. You’ll be glad to check into this modern, designer-filled-furniture sojourn.
Extras: Full-fledged thermal experience with a designer onsen, heated pool and sauna.
Terrazze has one of the finest penthouses in Niseko and is du jour in winter holidays. It’s most definitely an eye-catcher with stylish furnishings and of course, Mount Yotei in sight, which you can enjoy from the heated terrace. It has exquisite attention to details of the structure, albeit, indoors and outdoors. The calming ambience is surely worthy for breaking the bank.
Extras: With a location in the Middle Village, you are only minutes away from fab bars and restaurants. Terrazze offers guests complimentary ski shuttle and concierge service.
