Niseko Chalet Report

Wednesday, 13 Jul 2011

Quit moaning about the tropical weather, and deal with it as we do.

Book an icy escape in your diary right now, and not only will you have a chance to really look forward to it, you can nab an early bird deal while you are at it.

Here are three fabulous places to stay in Niseko:

Latitude 42

Affectionately called “Lat 42″, the self-contained chalet in the lower Hirafu village lies within walking distance to Niseko’s best eateries and the Yukoro Onsen. With fantastic views of Mt. Yosei, the four bedroom chalet is perfect for families and friends looking for an intimate ski getaway.

The Setsumon

Full height windows with panoramic alpine views and sleek contemporary interiors are hallmark of the stylish studios and apartments in the Setsumon. A minute’s stroll to the ski lifts, world famous dining on the doorstep and onsens just ’round the corner – your stay here is just a snowball’s throw from all the Hirafu action.

Suiboku

With granite Ofuro baths, Mushiro straw-mat rugs, down futons, nara wood floors and bamboo screens, this exquisite ten-loft property is one of the most sumptuous accommodations in Niseko. Its sleek façade may seem frosty, but its interior exudes sensuous warmth that envelopes you from moment you walk in. Every loft looks out over Mount Yotei, so there’s no need to quibble over who gets the room with the view.

Early birds get 20% off their Japanese ski holiday for bookings between now till 31 August 2011 (conditions apply). if you are looking further afield, browse Lightfoot Travel’s recommended luxury ski chalets in the Alps to find the perfect European ski adventure.
