Studio / 1 Bedroom / 2 Bedrooms / 3 Bedrooms / 4 Bedrooms

Vibrant Echoland, Hakuba’s bar and restaurant hotspot, is the best place to be if your après forms a big part of your ski holiday. Echoland Apartments’ sleek studio, one, two or four bedroom serviced apartments also provide quick, easy access to skiing across the valley, as long as you’re happy to take the shuttle – it’s a 15 minute walk to the nearest lifts. Being so central doesn’t preclude spectacular views, either, as you’ll see when you look out of the windows.

Interiors are sleek and uncluttered - letting those big views work their magic - with open plan design and contemporary features in the form of heated floors, BOSE speakers and Apple TVs. The Saru Suite – the four bedroom Penthouse – is a cut above, with a private onsen and large laundry room, though all apartments have access to laundry and ski storage downstairs.
