Hokkaido Wellness Resort On A Mountain Has Scenic Views & Ryokan Interiors, Opens In 2023

Aman Niseko Resort Will Have 30 Suites, 31 Exclusive Residences & Many Different Types Of Spa Offerings

We remember Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido as a haven of scenic flower fields, fresh seafood, and historic castles, but this upcoming destination will cause the island to be renowned as a wellness retreat too.

Aman – a luxury hotel group – is set to build its first wellness resort cum residences in Hokkaido by 2023.

Located in the slopes of Mount Moiwa, the location of Aman Niseko will allow travellers to ski to their heart’s content, explore the wilderness, and rejuvenate themselves in onsens or saunas.

Resort has 30 exclusive suites, all with mountain views

The luxury hotel chain’s fourth Japanese property, its 30 suites are housed in a separate pavilion, and all of them have mountain views.

Since it’s an all-in-one wellness resort, you might be tempted to stay cooped up in your room for the entire trip — but you shouldn’t.


Wellness resort situation amid pristine forests

That’s because distinct from other Japanese inns and hotels, this resort will expose you to the natural beauty of Japan’s northern forests.

It will be the only property on Hokkaido’s Mount Moiwa, and the mountain rivals Switzerland’s extensive mountain ranges, thanks to its pristine forests and natural landscapes.

Its remote location also lets guests have access to winter activities like snowboarding, skiing, river rafting, and hiking.

Ryokan interiors

While the outdoor area will definitely lure you into wilderness adventures, the interior follows a minimalist ryokan – Japanese inn – aesthetic that will make you feel calm and comfortable.


The restaurant has a rustic and simple charm.


Luxuriate in all sorts of spa offerings

Hokkaido is the onsen capital of the world, but this destination will give you access to more than just onsens.

The Aman Niseko resort will have more variety in its spa offerings, with plans to include indoor and outdoor saunas, as well as Finnish saunas, steam rooms, cold plunge pools, indoor lap pools, and aqua fitness pools.

Expect wellness experiences like Shiatsu massage and Zen meditation made possible with veteran therapists well-versed in Japan’s healing traditions.

Meanwhile, the spa reception area has a blissfully calm atmosphere where you can read your favorite book or jam to your Spotify playlist to get a well-deserved break.


Those who crave a peaceful environment while sipping on refreshment can stay in the tea room, where they can momentarily forget their worries and indulge in the countryside view.

While we usually crave for sushi, we’re eager to also enjoy the flavours of freshly brewed Japanese tea.


Each residence frames its natural setting

If you’re flush with cash, consider owning one of the 31 residences, each of them a two-storey structure packed with entertainment areas, ski rooms and three bedrooms.

Home theatres, wine cellars, and massage rooms can be added.


The residences are also designed to frame their natural settings, from forest views to mountain scenery.


If you want a breath of fresh air, the residences also have large balconies where you can gaze at the towering trees and wildlife.


A place to bookmark for a future visit

Singaporeans, together with travellers from 110 other countries, are currently banned from entering Japan due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But by the time the resort opens in 2023, we’re optimistic that the situation will get back to normal and you can book your trip to Japan.

In the meantime, visit Aman’s website to learn more about the hotel and bookmark this resort for a future visit.

After we’ve recovered from life’s recent setbacks, consider rewarding yourself with a wellness retreat in this amazingly beautiful place.
