Aman has earmarked a 2023 opening for an all-season retreat on the slopes of Japan’s Mt Moiwa in Hokkaido’s Niseko region.
The 30-room ultra-luxury Aman Niseko will feature extensive wellness facilities and a number of restaurants on an expansive 187-hectare site.
The Niseko region is renowned for its abundant snowfall, vast long ski runs and endless powder. The summer months are equally appealing, with mild weather ideal for hiking, mountain biking and river rafting. Mountains, forests and rivers dominate in a dramatic landscape that has entranced artists and poets for centuries, while Japan’s onsen bathing rituals, together with the history of the Ainu people and renowned cuisine, are unique cultural offerings.
Aman Niseko will frame spectacular 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.
The first full spa and wellness resort in Japan, Aman Niseko will offer peace for the senses in multifaceted experiences that nourish mind, body and soul. Personalised retreat programs crafted in consultation with each guest will offer the benefits of Japanese and European spa and healing rituals, fitness and mindfulness activities, and healthy cuisine for indulgence and vitality.
The Aman Spa will feature single and double treatment suites, pre-treatment lounges, relaxation pods and extensive thermal spa areas, including Finnish saunas, Watsu treatment chamber, cold plunge pools, steam rooms, hammam, experience showers and onsen. An indoor lap pool and an aqua fitness pool will overlook an outdoor terrace with forest and mountain views. An expansive spa lounge leads to a boutique and Spa Tea Room.
“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,” said Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of Aman. “This all-season resort will be a haven of peacefulness immersed in the purest Japanese scenery with the renowned thoughtfulness of Japanese hospitality.”
