Aman has signed its fourth resort in Japan, an all-season retreat situated on the high slopes of Mt Moiwa on an untouched nature reserve in Hokkaido’s Niseko region.
The Niseko region is renowned for its abundant snowfall and long ski runs in winter, while the summer months are equally appealing, with mild weather ideal for hiking, mountain biking and river rafting.
Scheduled to open in 2023, the Aman Niseko will feature just 30 guest rooms and 31 residences, a spa and extensive wellness facilities, two pools, a two-story kid's club, and a number of restaurants on an expansive 187-hectare site.
Paying homage to Japan’s ryokan (traditional inn), Aman Niseko will frame forest and mountain vistas from every angle, while incorporating open fireplaces, private Furo bathtubs in each room and onsen facilities. Terraces will offer sweeping views of the surrounding mountains, and wooden accents throughout the interiors will provide warmth, depth and a sense of bringing nature within.
Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of Aman, said, "The announcement of Aman Niseko follows the recent and successful debut of Aman Kyoto. Aman Niseko is designed in harmony with its expansive and serene surroundings and the resort and residences will embrace Aman’s devotion to detail and impeccable service. This all-season resort will be a haven of peacefulness immersed in the purest Japanese scenery with the renowned thoughtfulness of Japanese hospitality."
The resort and its residences have been designed by Kerry Hill Architects, also responsible for the design of Aman’s other Japan properties; Aman Tokyo, Amanemu and Aman Kyoto.© Asia Travel Tips
