These pristine rooms will soon become your home as you relax and enjoy your stay with your friends and family.
Forest Estate is split over two levels however, the three bedrooms are found on the first floor for a more homely and private ambiance. It will feel like a ceremony to go upstairs for some time in the family room with loved ones. The bedrooms feature floor-to-ceiling glass walls and windows overlooking the gorgeous Niseko scenery and there is a striking black wall behind the double (or two single) beds. The simple décor allows you to unwind in these easy-going bedrooms.
The beds are plush and you would never wish to get up, especially when you are toasty and warm under the blankets. There is one ensuite bathroom, one shower and three toilets separately. They are equipped with toiletries, towels, hair dryers and more.
If you want to experience the true majesty of Mount Yotei, you just need to step outside to thewide veranda for the most breath-taking view that spans across the clear, blue skies, the crater of Mount Yotei shrouded behind the clouds and the surrounding forest laden with freshly-fallen snow. The modern façade of Forest Estate is a true Japanese architectural marvel and you can play endlessly in the snow, sit outdoors under the winter sun and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea for a relaxing experience.
