SALES of Capella Niseko continue to roll in, with three deposits received for apartments from buyers in Niseko alone this season.
Outside Niseko, several more deposits were made at a recent trade show in Shanghai, and 45 have been sold in Hong Kong and Singapore.
Capella Niseko will be a luxury boutique resort at Annupuri, comprised of 70 suites and a mix of 149 apartments, houses and villas. Capella is the world’s only six-star resort chain.
All sales have been made by Niseko Property, who have a Capella Niseko display in their showroom on Hirafu-Zaka Street, opposite the Park Hotel, and inquiries at the new office in Alpen Ridge.
Ruskin McLennan from Niseko Property said that in spite of its six-star status, Capella Niseko was competitively priced, and a sound investment.
“On a square-metre basis, it’s cheaper than Hirafu, which a lot of people don’t realise,” he said. “Because we’re targeting the year-round market, not just winter, the rental returns are planned to be about five per cent.”
