Just in time for the winter season, YTL Hotels will unveil its latest luxury addition in Niseko Village. Located on the island of Hokkaido in the north of Japan, known for its high levels of snowfall, Niseko is a world-famous ski resort—a paradise for powder hounds. Opening on December 1, 2019, Hinode Hills Niseko Village is an all-suite property with 79 rooms decorated with a traditional wabi-sabi design aesthetic, integrating natural forms and nods to nature. Hinode Hills will join three other YTL hotels in Niseko Village: The Green Leaf Niseko Village, Hilton Niseko Village and Kasara Niseko Village Townhouse.
With ski-in, ski-out access at the base of Mount Niseko Annupuri, Hinode Hills sits on a prime piece of real estate at the heart of Niseko Village. This location is next to the Upper Village Gondola, which provides easy lift access to the mountain. Note that to accommodate families or groups traveling together, there are multiple room configurations of up to three bedrooms. An in-house team of ski specialists can help with gear, and after a day on the slopes, you can relax in the hotel’s onsen.
Malaysia-based YTL Hotels owns and manages a portfolio of international hotels and Spa Villages in Asia, Australia and Europe, including the Gainsborough Bath Spa. The group also has ownership management of a number of Marriott hotels in Australia, Koh Samui and Kuala Lumpur, including Autograph Collection properties, and co-owns the Eastern & Oriental Express luxury train.
