A truly remarkable alpine getaway can be found in ski paradise Niseko, where on the slopes of Hirafu Village, lies the Skye Niseko 1-Bedroom Suite that can perfectly sleep 3 guests. Within the sprawling property of Skye Niseko itself, this suite is built on a space size between 48 and 62 sq metres and exquisitely appointed with fittings and furnishings that are premier in design. It is larger than a studio unit and comes with in-room laundry amenities and a big kitchen, affording for guests to move about more spaciously. Guests can unwind by the all-encompassing, expansive window panels that look out to the stunning views of Mt Yotei and the white landscape. Guests staying at Skye Niseko are granted the true ski-in, ski-out privilege in which they get to access the world-renowned snow at Niseko Grand Hirafu. In 2019, Skye Niseko was awarded the Top 3 World’s Best New Ski Hotels in just its first year of operation to recognize its luxury suites and five-star services in an impeccable location.
The Skye Niseko 1-Bedroom Suite is fitted either with a twin or double bed, and can also be accommodated with an additional Murphy bed in order to sleep 3 guests. The bed is plush and comfy, while the interior is retained with a minimalist look of dark carpeting and wooden paneling. Large floor-to-ceiling windows open out to scenic views of the mountainous terrain, while an ensuite bathroom is designed with clean lines and chic and dark hues that lend an aura of elegance and luxury. Guests can pamper themselves under the cascade of luxurious rain showers and take advantage of the hotel-like layout that the bathroom conjures.
The expansive floor-to-ceiling windows that run the length of Skye Niseko’s 1- Bedroom Suite in entirety are cleverly appointed for guests to leverage onto the full panoramic vista of what lies across and beyond. From the white powdery snow in the day to the serenity of the dark skies and stars at night, the full vantage point from the inside allows guests to marvel at the outdoors without really needing to step out into the cold.
The modern simplicity and earthy tones used throughout the interior create a sense of airiness and a homey vibe for guests, Contemporary sofas and furniture occupy the living space alongside coffee tables, while floor-to-ceiling windows afford natural sunlight to stream in as one draws back the curtains. A flat-screen smart television is mounted on the wall and which streams Netflix for entertainment.
