We have some pretty exciting news to share! We've been featured in Asia Pacific's leading travel and lifestyle online magazine, WanderLuxe.com, as an ideal accommodation option for first time travellers to Niseko.
The recent article, "The Insider Guide: Your First Time In Niseko", features Ki as an ideal place to stay because it includes two great features perfect for first-timers: ski-in ski-out and an onsen.
The article's writer, Jason Yokobosky, who stayed with us in January 2017, shares his tips, favourites and other recommendations for a seamless, first-time trip to Niseko.
Yokobosky's big tip was to base your trip out of a ski-in ski-out location so you can get suited up and easily collect your board or skis directly from the Ski Valet – a "priceless" experience as described by Yokobosky. Check out the video from Yokobosky's trip to Niseko!
As well as a mountain-side location, having close access to an onsen was another notable feature for any first-timer in Niseko. With our very own onsen, including a private onsen which can be booked by guests free of charge, Ki delivers to guests the famous onsen culture of Niseko.
"This became a ritual every morning and evening to wake up even the most fatigued bodies," writes Yokobosky. The article also mentioned the plunge pool as an additional facility that makes the onsen experience even more refreshing.
Ki Niseko was featured alongside other top first-timer tips like Yokobosky's favourite runs at Grand Hirafu being Miharashi and handy language tips to help get you by. To read the full article, see here.
