1. Higashiyama Niseko Village, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve: The first hotel in Japan under Marriott's most premium brand

Higashiyama Niseko Village, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, is the first hotel in Japan to open under the Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand, a premium line of hotels offered by Marriott, the world's largest hotel chain.

Directly connected to Niseko Village, the doors of this integrated mountain resort are open all year round to visitors looking for a fantastic experience.

The luxury hotel is located within the vicinity of many places of interest, so guests are spoiled for choice on what activities to try during their stay. Enjoy Niseko's world-famous powder snow during winter, play golf on a top course between spring and summer, or participate in one of the many other outdoor activities available throughout the year. It's entirely up to you!

Access
It takes about 20 minutes to drive to Higashiyama Niseko Village, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve from JR Kutchan Station, or two hours and 15 minutes from New Chitose Airport.

Higashiyama Niseko Village, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, offers a resort bus service that takes guests to and from Kutchan Station or New Chitose Airport during the winter. They can also arrange for a pickup service for you at New Chitose Airport during the summertime.

Inside the classy resort, the decor follows the Japanese aesthetic principles of kacho fugetsu - art that taps into the beauty in nature and its ever-changing landscapes. This is reflected in the interior design that shifts subtly according to the time of the day and season of the year.

An air of polished elegance follows you throughout this gorgeous Niseko luxury hotel, from the lobby to the guestrooms, and the warm tones of nature can be felt through the exquisite use of natural materials in its furniture and fittings.

Guest rooms at Higashiyama Niseko Village, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, feature numerous meticulously polished marble and granite stones. The pleasant fragrance of Japanese cedar greets you upon entering. Everything has been designed to come together to help put guests in the mood for some luxurious relaxation.

There are 50 guestrooms in the hotel, each with a specific theme, such as Niseko Reserve King, Yotei Reserve Twin, Higashiyama Suite, and others. Every room has a large window that offers an unblocked view of either Mount Yotei or Mount Niseko-Annupuri.

The beauty of the scene outside makes it almost seem like living art hanging on your room wall and demonstrates the hotel's dedication to harmonizing every part of its interior with nature.

The Higashiyama Suite, the hotel's largest guestroom, is highly recommended for families and travel groups. It contains an attached bathroom, two bedrooms, a walk-in closet, a dining table, and many other amenities that will facilitate group stays.

Of particular note is that the bathrooms in every guestroom come with a Japanese hot spring-style tub. To help guests relax both their body and mind, a large window offers a view of the mountain range of Niseko in the distance as they bathe in comfort and privacy.

Guests who have stayed in the hotel remark that they found it very easy to relax in an air of privacy of the spacious rooms and large bathtubs here.

There are also larger shared baths in the hotel that guests are welcome to use. Both indoor and outdoor baths use natural hot spring water from the locality, so the experience will be very unique.

Speaking of the spring water here, it's said to be packed with minerals that will make your skin feel moisturized long after you've emerged from its warm embrace.

In addition, the bath areas are connected to a peaceful garden landscape nearby, and one of the best recipes for ultimate relaxation has got to be the combination of a warm bath and a great view. Hot saunas and private hot springs are available as well.

After warming yourself up at the bath, it's time to fill your stomach with the delicacies Niseko has to offer at the lounge or any of the two restaurants in the hotel. At one restaurant, food is prepared with fresh and seasonal local vegetables, premium meat, and delicious seafood.

The other restaurant serves Japanese cuisine, including the traditional Japanese omakase-style sushi, where you allow the chef to prepare sushi with ingredients he recommends or thinks you would enjoy.

After a delectable meal, head to the lounge for some made-to-order cocktails, local beer brews, and a seemingly endless variety of other drink options that will help you wind down for the night.

Communication with hotel staff will be quite smooth, as several foreign staff are working at the restaurants and reception desk here. This is one of the significant factors contributing to high praise in reviews from guests who have stayed here before.

2. One Niseko Resort Towers: Condominium-style luxury hotel with suite rooms only

2. One Niseko Resort Towers: Condominium-style luxury hotel with suite rooms only

One Niseko Resort Towers is located in Niseko's Moiwa district, and all guestrooms here are suite rooms. This luxury hotel also has a large shared bath area that draws its bath waters from the natural hot springs in Niseko Moiwa, making it a great choice to consider for a comfortable long-term stay.

Another perk that long-term guests can enjoy when staying here is the free shuttle bus service that ferries guests between Kutchan Station, Niseko Station, and Niseko View Plaza Rest Area-a rest area where you can buy local vegetables, cheese and processed animal products.

Access
It takes about 25 minutes to reach One Niseko Resort Towers by car from Kutchan Station, or two hours and 15 minutes from New Chitose Airport. You can also take the free shuttle bus from Kutchan Station or grab a limousine pickup service from New Chitose Airport and other major locations within Hokkaido.

When you first step into the hotel lobby, the warm, wooden design theme is probably what will stand out the most.

Designed and built by Kengo Kuma & Associates, their goal was to incorporate the worldview of the indigenous Ainu people, who believed that a deity resided even in trees. Thus nature was to be revered, and they have certainly achieved that in spades.

Whether it's the lobby lounge, cafe, and bar, or the changing rooms of the shared bath, guests are constantly surrounded by the prominent natural motifs of this Niseko luxury hotel.

Perhaps the sense of peacefulness the hotel evokes comes from the protection of the Ainu deities residing in the wooden materials that make up much of its decor.

One Niseko Resort Towers offers 105 guestrooms. The Studio Suite is for a group of up to three guests. The top-class Penthouse can take up to eight! Of course, there are other types as well, to cater to different group configurations.

All rooms have a kitchen and balcony area meant to make the room space very livable for the long term.

Family or travel groups may want to consider the Studio Suite Tatami, a 1LDK (1-bedroom with a living room, dining room, and kitchen) suite with an East-meets-West layout that allows for up to five guests.

Two guests will have to sleep in futon mattresses on the tatami straw mats instead of beds, allowing them to try out the genuine Japanese sleeping experience.

The view from the balcony is an endless expanse of natural greenery. Standing here to take in the sights in the company of a gentle breeze is a superb way to relax in style and comfort.

Foreign guests who have stayed in this hotel before heaping much praise on it. One said: "The tatami room is perfect for a family with children. The kitchen has everything you need. You can easily drive out to buy food ingredients to prepare breakfast and dinner with, which is a huge plus." It looks like a great place to consider for long-term stays, indeed!

You'll find both indoor and outdoor baths in the shared bath area, all designed with a unique sort of Japanese aesthetics that integrates traditional hot spring culture with trendier modern themes. The hot spring water looks a little cloudy and is known to leave the skin feeling smooth and supple after a satisfying dip.

The food made by the hotel's restaurant is meant to express the theme of "a collaboration between mountains, rivers, and the sea."

Specifically, they use seasonal ingredients and present their Niseko nouvelle cuisine-style dishes. Other than the restaurant, the gallery cafe and bar also offer light food and alcoholic beverages, and guests can feel free to drop by at any time to see for a bit of light refreshment if they so desire.

3. Niseko Northern Resort Annupuri: A convenient base for outdoor activities

3. Niseko Northern Resort Annupuri: A convenient base for outdoor activities

Niseko Northern Resort Annupuri is a luxury mountain resort hotel near Niseko Annupuri Kokusai Ski Area and open all year round.

The strikingly tranquil Niseko Northern Resort Annupuri is surrounded by much nature and greenery. With Mount Niseko-Annupuri right at its doorstep, this is an ideal place to use as a base for outdoor activities in any season of your preference.

Knowing you have a place to rest and refresh yourself next door allows you to play to your heart's content! By staying in this hotel, you can have your fill of powder snow and sports in winter, mountain climbing and trekking in summer, or rafting and canoeing in one of the nearby rivers without worrying about making a long trip back to your accommodations after the fun day.

Access
Niseko Northern Resort Annupuri is about 25 minutes by car from Kutchan Station, 10 minutes from Niseko Station, or two hours and 15 minutes from New Chitose Airport.

If you contact the hotel at least two days beforehand and let them know your arrival times, they will be able to arrange a free shuttle bus for you (between 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. only, but service is currently temporarily suspended). Other options are highway buses that operate daily from Sapporo Station or Otaru Station, or the resort bus from New Chitose Airport during winter.

"Scandinavian Chic" is the concept behind the hotel's decor, so you'll find plenty of Scandinavian-inspired touches all around the building with tastefully selected color tones that go along with them. It almost feels like stepping inside a carefully wrapped gift of soothing calmness and comfort.

At the back of the lobby is the Wilderness Library, an academic space where guests can read books and surf the internet for free.

The lounge just next door serves coffee and other beverages that you can order to accompany your intellectual relaxation. The unique-looking chairs and interior decorations are exciting things to look out for.

Niseko Northern Resort Annupuri has a total of 152 guestrooms of different types. The Standard Twin Room and Standard Hollywood Twin Room can each take up to three people, the Heartful Room is barrier-free, and the Deluxe Suite Room is for those looking for the ultimate opulence.

And these are just a few types! For families and travel groups, the recommendation is the Deluxe Twin Room.

Some of these rooms have separate bathing and toilet areas, allowing one to be used without blocking up access for the other. That would certainly help to ease up the queue for the washroom that tends to form at the most inopportune times!

The best part about staying in this luxury hotel in Niseko, however, is the natural scenery that can be seen from the room windows. In fact, the sight is so impressive, you would be forgiven for thinking the window was just a frame for a large and beautiful painting of nature!

If your family or travel group has more than four people, consider getting connecting rooms for the extra space and headcount. Connected Standard Twin rooms, for example, are allowed to house up to six people.

Tucked into a corner of Niseko Northern Resort Annupuri on the first floor is the common bath area that's equipped with natural hot springs and sauna facilities.

The spring water is brownish because of its saline and iron content, and this unusual color makes it quite memorable at first glance. Those who have soaked in the spring praise the water for its excellent moisturizing properties.

The hotel's outdoor bath is also a special treat - bathers get to enjoy the sight of Niseko's grand scenery during the day, and a fantasy-like view during the night as the landscape is illuminated by glowing lights. It's like the hotel is telling guests: Don't just take a bath - take it in resplendence!

For food, Niseko Northern Resort Annupuri has prepared a hearty buffet consisting of more than 30 dishes - all made in an open kitchen with seasonal Hokkaido ingredients, so that guests can always be sure that they're getting the freshest food available. As the menu rotates every now and then, those staying for the long term can always have something to look forward to at every meal!

Many foreigners who have stayed in the hotel before praising the staff for being friendly and approachable. The food is another thing about the hotel that has received rave reviews.
