Everything You Need to Experience at this Luxurious Hotel in Niseko

In the powder wonderland of Niseko sits the luxurious AYA Niseko condominium hotel. Located at Niseko Grand Hirafu Ski Resort, it’s the perfect place to stay for ski fans who love to be in the heart of the action. The Luxe Nomad, Asia Pacific’s leading luxury villa booking portal, recommends AYA for a weekend of luxury, excitement, and recreation.

Contemporary Design

The hotel’s location is quite prime as it is surrounded by different restaurants, bars, and shops that guests can visit any time. It is also situated at the most popular ski runs that make skiing a popular and convenient activity. From a distance, it’s noticeable that the hotel is luxurious as it is constructed with a contemporary Japanese design. The floor-to-ceiling windows create a sense of space indoors and allow the guests to take in the magnificent views of Mt. Yotei and the beautiful Ski Resort and Protected Forest. While the hotel carries a contemporary architecture and design, the hospitality and respect of the Japanese culture remain in the way the hotel staff assists guests.

The building is seven-stories high in which the top floor is the penthouse. It has a huge foyer area breaking into two wings with common and sleeping areas. The entire penthouse is huge enough to accommodate two persons in each of the four spacious bedrooms. The interiors are all sleek, elegant, and quality furnishings. The most amazing part of the room is the balcony access that offers a breathtaking view of the mountains. Guests can definitely wake up to a wonderful and peaceful morning with the beautiful scenery.

Guests can enjoy their leisure time with the many in-house amenities such as ski school and valet service, spa and massage, gym, art gallery, bar, conference room, and more. Serving breakfast to early risers, skiers, and snowboarders, all the way to dinner is AYA’s in-house restaurant, Ginger. They serve traditional Izayaka-inspired cuisine prepared from fresh and quality Hokkaido ingredients. The menu goes beyond the choices of burgers, ramen, and traditional Japanese cuisine. For seafood lovers, the restaurant guarantees serving only the freshest from its seafood selection of scallops, tuna, salmon, and squid.

Niseko is famous for its quality and consistency of snow. That’s why ski fans love traveling to this part of Japan and enjoy their hobby. The snow is perfect–soft and powdery that first-time skiers or snowboarders wouldn’t fear to trip or to fall down on the dry snow. The ski lift is a short distance from the hotel but a ski valet service is still available to carry heavy winter outfits and equipment. The hotel offers ski and snowboarding classes so even non-ski fans can experience the fun, playing in the infamous snow of Niseko.

Ultimate Relaxation Experience

After spending a long time in the cold weather, it’s wonderful to know that AYA Niseko has outdoor onsens. Guests can relax their exhausted bodies and bask in the warmth of the water as soon as they dip in. They can even enjoy the glorious view of the frozen landscape right across the onsen.

AYA Niseko is truly a luxurious hotel for lovers of skiing and snowboarding and casual guests. It’s perfect for a weekend of both relaxation and excitement, that guests can certainly claim “this is the life.”
