Niseko Hilton Village

This luxury resort has something for everyone, from families seeking adventure to those dreaming of a rejuvenating retreat. Slip into the open hot springs beneath bright blue skies and verdant Mount Yotei, or slip off to the spa for some indulgent pampering.

With the hotel’s own ski slopes right on the doorstep, the Hilton is the ideal choice for a Niseko skiing holiday. This distinctive hotel is designed so every room offers a stunning view of Mt. Yotei, the rolling mountains surrounding Niseko or Niseko‚Äôs ski area. With 506 twin and triple rooms Hilton Niseko Village is the ultimate ski-in ski-out hotel in Hokkaido for all guests and groups.

Although the Hilton is a distance from Hirafu, the hub of Niseko action, it’s a great choice for those less interested in nightlife and particularly for families with smaller children.

With everything you need right on the doorstep, the Hilton Village offers a great choice for those wanting to ski in Niseko, especially families with younger children who might have less interest in the nightlife options in the main Hirafu area. The slopes are right on the doorstep and the hotel's selection of restaurants, bars and cafes have something for everyone. The public spaces here are good; a vast central lobby area which has a lounge in the centre with a huge suspended fireplace. The building is circular and around this central lounge there is the front desk, restaurants, spas, gift shops etc. Coming into the hotel, this all gives a warm and pleasantly welcoming atmosphere. There are plenty of English speaking staff, as well as other languages and in fact I was told that some Japanese guests complain that not enough staff speak Japanese! During the winter season, 70% of the hotel guests are foreign, with the brunt of those being Australian but when I visited, I heard plenty of American accents and saw many other Asian guests so this hotel offers a great cosmopolitan atmosphere.
