It really doesn’t get sexier than Hakuba Mountain Lodge, which perches on a hill in peaceful Goryu. The chalet was designed by – and for - Saigon-based designer Nikki Hunt, before being sold on for others to enjoy; and boy will you enjoy yourself. The palate is neutrals and blacks – with plenty of design nods to Japan; the lighting is soft, the furniture is fashionable, and the finish quaility is supreme. In addition to atmospheric lounge and dining areas, there’s an impressive kitchen, a decadent traditional bath house, and a cinema. All five bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, so there’ll be no competition once you're off the slopes.

There are several dining and drinking options a 10 minute walk away at Escal Plaza Toomi, where you’ll also find the shuttle bus if you’ve seen enough of Goryu village and want to head in to Happo. If the bus isn’t your thing, the complimentary eight-seater vehicle will allow you to mooch about the valley as you please.
