Hilton Niseko
Niseko

The Hilton is Niseko's key ski-in/ski-out hotel and sits in a prime location at the foot of Annapuri mountain. You can quite literally ski right out of the front door to the adjacent gondolas and ski lifts that reach the top of the mountain in just over five minutes. From up here, an array of pistes are available in this resort as are other ski lifts to the surrounding peaks and valleys.

An open fire set in the rich red hue of the lobby creates a cosy and relaxing atmosphere to come back to after a busy day skiing. Not to mention the indoor and outdoor hot spring 'onsen' baths, which provide the ultimate après-ski detox. In our opinion, nothing beats soaking in piping warm water with steam rising up around you in the fresh air to relax your tired muscles after a day on the slopes. What’s more, the outdoor 'onsen' faces directly out onto the snowy scenic vista – bliss.

You will be spoilt for choice for cuisine here as the Hilton Niseko is home to four restaurants – Pirka (serving 'teppanyaki'), where you can watch skilled chefs fry your fine beef and seafood in front of you, Rera (serving sushi), where you can taste fresh sushi within a traditional counter seat setting, Sisam (serving traditional Japanese food), where you can dine on local dishes in a light bright dining room and Melt, Bar and Grill (serving a buffet), where you can enjoy succulent food while looking out onto magnificent views of Mt Yotei. For a drink, enjoy a cocktail in their lounge or, if you’re in need of a livelier atmosphere, Exo bar is a popular spot during the après-ski hours.

The higher room categories offer some of the best panoramic mountain views to be had, particularly of Mt Yotei which is reminiscent of the majestic Mt Fuji in its shape. The interior design is predominately Western in its style, with clear-cut lines and minimalistic design, as is typical of Hilton properties worldwide.

All in all, this is an excellent base for a few on the slopes in Niseko and is especially well suited to families. Not only is it child friendly, but it also provides many useful amenities for a range of ages. Located within the village itself, where most of the English-language restaurants and entertainment spots can be found, the Hilton is one of the top hotels in Niseko.

I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
