The Short & Sweet

  • Who. For the romantics, families and buddies who are in for a lavish ski-venture!

  • What. Right in the heart of Niseko’s snowy wonderland, make yourself at home at the Vale Niseko. This super luxe and classy collection of 49 separate one, two and three-bedroom apartments, is the five-star getaway for ski-lovers with a location in Upper Village of Hirafu that is perched right atop the ski run. Voted the World's Best Boutique Ski Hotel Award at the 2014 World Ski Awards and accompanied by the exquisite views of the alpine vistas, its chic interior falls right into place with white linen and feather comforters, as well as neutral tones all around. What’s more impressive is that absolutely stunning open-plan bathroom with a bathtub that allows you to fully embrace beautiful views from the outside. As the icing on the cake, you also get your own personal onsen within the apartment for a cosy dip or two! The slopes at the Vale are rather gentle, as it is located at the bottom of the Family Run – which means children are more than welcomed! For some après-ski time, grab a drink from the Vale Bar & Grill while admiring the snow-capped hills you earlier conquered from the terraces. On days off the slopes, start a fire (literally) with your own fireplace and cuddle up with some DVDs and games, although we’d highly recommend that you head out to Hirafu village for a quick walk around town! Immerse yourself in this alpine experience with the Vale, courtesy of its world-class fittings and the preservation of Japanese influences, in making your stay worthwhile!

  • Why. Super luxe penthouses are available! Views of Mt Yotei. Private onsens in each apartment features views from the ski-run. Open fireplaces to keep warm. Open plan bathrooms with a bathtub overlooking the alpine panoramas. The ultra luxe lobby and the 12-hour concierge service. Yes, please.
