Ki Niseko, currently under development, is slated to become Hirafu’s premier year-round resort hotel.
With a ski-in, ski-out location featuring immediate access to multiple lifts, ski valet, beautiful views of the ski runs and Mount Yotei, hiking, MTB and road bike trails right at the door in summer, natural on-site onsen hot spring spa, concierge, and unmatched amenities, Ki Niseko offers all the best that Niseko has to offer. “Ki” meaning tree, symbolises the natural beauty of Hokkaido. Architect Koichi Ishiguro has designed Ki to fit in with the surrounding environment, utilising many elements from Hokkaido’s nature; the on-site onsen hot spring provides both relaxation and eco-friendly heating, the master-planned gardens extend the neighboring forest onto the resort grounds, complete with summer nature walking path and flowing river, and the exterior design utilizes earth tones and mimics natural materials to blend into the mountain. The interior features contemporary apartments with Japanese-inspired design elements, with rooms configured from hotel rooms to three bedroom penthouses. All apartments come fully furnished with premium fittings, climate control, extensive use of natural light and beautiful views of either the ski slopes or Mount Yotei. The in-hotel amenities include ski valet, front reception, lounge, bar/cafe, restaurant, shop, hot springs, spa and massage. The location also can’t be beat, with full ski-in, ski-out access to both the Hirafu high-speed gondola and Holiday Pair lifts, in the Hirafu Upper Village. Hirafu is Niseko’s main resort area, with a wide selection of 103 restaurants and bars, and an increasing assortment of shopping and activities, and Ki is within easy walking distance or shuttle bus ride from all of them. Bookings for Ki Niseko can be made now for the 2014 ski season. For those interested in investing Phase 1 is now on sale and includes 34 of the building’s 58 units. As an investment opportunity, Ki Niseko is designed to be more than just your home on the slopes – it also a sound financial performer in your absence. This will be achieved through a combination of Hirafu’s top ski-in ski-out location, efficient and flexible unit layout, and unmatched building amenities.
