Aman ventures into Hokkaido, Japan’s untamed wilderness with an all-season spa and wellness resort
Following the recent and successful debut of Aman Kyoto, Aman has announced the launch of its fourth property in Japan, Aman Niseko. Set on the high slopes of Mt. Moiwa overlooking the legendary Mount Yotei, Aman Niseko, an all-season resort, is set to open in Hokkaido’s Niseko region in 2023.
Designed by Kerry Hill Architects, the same company responsible for the design of Aman’s other Japan properties: Aman Kyoto, Amanemu and Aman Tokyo, the linear design of the resort is inspired by its natural surroundings and Japan’s ryokan (traditional Inn), incorporating wooden accents throughout the interiors to provide warmth and a sense of nature.
Spanning 187 hectare, the resort features 30 guest rooms boasting mountain vistas, each comes with open fireplaces, private Furo bathtubs and onsen facilities.
A full spa and wellness resort, Aman Niseko will offer extensive wellness facilities and programmes that deliver the benefits of Japanese and European spa and healing rituals, fitness, mindfulness and healthy cuisine for indulgence and vitality.
The Aman Spa will feature 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. Those who like to stay active can enjoy the indoor lap pool and aqua fitness pool with forest and mountain views.
