Where it is: Hanazono
What you’ll get: A sleek luxury chalet with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Surrounded by a protected national park forest, you’ll get wonderful views of Mt. Yotei framed by floor-to-ceiling windows. It also has an impressive media room to keep everyone entertained, furnished with a 100-inch TV, Xbox, karaoke system, and foosball.
What you’ll love: Not a lot of accommodations in Niseko have private onsens, but this stay has two! Choose between the indoor or outdoor natural onsens, which you can enjoy all to yourselves.
What to do: Located near lots of activity areas, a 3-5 minute drive will take you straight to the Hanazono Ski Resort. (Insider tip: book in the winter to get the butler, car and driver service inclusions!) Visiting during warmer months? Hanazono Tree Trekking (1.8km) and Hanazono Golf (2.5km) are also easily accessible for a fine day outdoors.
Where it is: Lower Hirafu
What you’ll get: Quaint and spacious, this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home has a modern minimalist look to complement its open plan living and dining area. It comfortably fits a group of 6, whether with family or friends, plus it’s equipped with a full kitchen, ski storage, drying area, and a laundry room complete with washer and dryer facilities.
What you’ll love: Situated in the middle of the woodlands, you’ll get beautiful views all year round: refreshing greens for spring and summer, warm tones for autumn, or powdery scenes for winter.
What to do: You won’t run out of places to go, as you’ll be in close proximity to, well, everything! Stretch your legs and discover good eats within walking distance (the nearest restaurants and bars are only 50m away!). Meanwhile, in the winter, you’ll be a short drive from the Grand Hirafu Gondola and ACE Family Quad ski lifts.
