Dharma Niseko

The Dharma Niseko Hotel consists of eight deluxe roomsin the famed Hirafu village of Niseko. The hotel also contains a restaurant on the ground floor, part of Hirafu’s Restaurant Row, a popular street characterised by eclectic F&B options andvarious building styles that have arisen since the rise of domestic ski tourism and the subsequent construction boom in the 1970s.

Dharma Niseko Hotel stands out as a new landmark in Hirafu with its simple, contemporary, organic architecture: essentially a platonic cube punctuated with bay windows looking out to views of Mount Yotei, the Grand Hirafu Ski fields, and Momiji Street. The building is distinguishable for its understated hotel signage, an inviting cafe terrace, and modern interiors. The interior concept appears fresh with an abundance of natural materials, taking inspiration from the atmosphere and aesthetic of resort minimalism.

The living, dining and main suite rooms in the hotel feature large bay window seating. The bay windows maximise daylight and frame the spectacular, ever-changing views outside as living art, giving guests a place to relax and unwind after a day of skiing, sightseeing, and dining.
