They named this new hotel to symbolise the "natural beauty of Hokkaido" - 'Ki' means 'tree' in Japanese. What we know is that Ki is Niseko's newest luxury development, forst opening it doors for the 2014/2015 winter season - and it's set to spectacular.

First of all the location; a prime ski-in ski-out spot, right next to the Hirafu high speed gondola station. Perfect. Then there is the development itself; ultra-luxury hotel rooms and one bedroom apartments - let's simply interpret these to be gorgeous hotel suites, with small kitchens included. Cleverly, these apartments will be next door to the anything-but-conventional hotel rooms, thus creating two-bedroom apartments when booked as one. All rooms enjoy stunning uninterrupted views to Mount Yotei or over the ski slopes.

Then you have all the other facilities you would expect from such a premium development; restaurants, cafés, private and public onsens and one of Niseko's best spa. 

Ki, once again, raises the bar in Niseko and challenges The Vale as it's most popular ski-in, ski-out accommodation choice.
