The Short & Sweet

  • Who. Suitable for jetsetting couples, families and group of friends.

  • What. Supremely chic and sophisticated, the Setsumon transports the typical New York boutique loft-styled apartment to the east at the heart of Niseko. With 10 units on-site, of studio, one, two or three-bedroom apartments and penthouses to choose from, lovers, friends and families can bask in this upscale abode, throughout their ski trip. Aside from its very central location with the slopes just around the corner, the Setsumon provides the right atmosphere for an après-ski – from the convenient ski gear drying room to the very comfort of your apartment after a long day out. Each unit features gorgeous Japanese cedar, plush carpets, modern fireplaces and designer kitchens, filled with Miele appliance, as well as vast windows and white walls, letting in plenty of light. Outside, the magnificent Mount Yotei completes the whole picture, but for celebrity-esque luxe, opt for the penthouses that come with an heated roof-top terrace and outdoor Jacuzzi!
