For holiday makers looking for an extra sense of relaxation that a self-serviced chalet rental just can’t deliver, the hotel offers a comfortable and stylish opportunity to explore and experience the best of Hakuba’s world class snow facilities. Conveniently located just a short walk from the ‘Adam’ Gondola ski lift station of the Happo-One resort area, mountain access is just one of the many features that return guests especially appreciate about this accommodation option.

Ski-in/ski-out is a luxury that very few Japanese ski hotels can offer, however, the ski-to-door access available at Phoenix Hotel is a wonderful feature that really does elevate any stay here to a very high level of convenience and indulgence. In sync, Phoenix Hotel’s in-house restaurant offers a stunning selection of generously-sized portions of delicious Western-fusion food, as well as an excellent wine stock of Australian-inspired curation.

Indoor Japanese Onsen (naturally occurring hot spring water) baths, mist sauna rooms, an in house massage service and a free hotel shuttle service to nearby ski areas are all included amenities. Wireless internet and a wonderful concierge service are also included in any stay at Phoenix Hotel.

Comfortable and stylish Western rooms are appropriately complimented by a choice of Japanese sleeping arrangements within the hotel as well. Sizes and styles vary – from the smaller, economically priced Compact Room through to the stunning floor-to-ceiling window Japanese style Superior Room. A Compact Double room, Standard Room and the larger Combination Room are also available, with a TV in every suite available at the Phoenix Hotel.

All room rates include continental and fully cooked breakfasts.

    Phoenix cocoon exceeded all expectations, could not recommend highly enough!
    We spent a week at Phoenix Cocoon (self-contained 3 bedroom chalet) and the place was absolutely exceptional; a beautiful 2-storey timber frame house completed kitted out with everything you could possibly need; big spacious drying room as you walk in, big bedrooms and bathrooms heated floors throughout the house, separate laundry, and a kitchen that is completed stocked with everything you could possible need (including a coffee machine with pods replaced daily). The place also comes with a big luxurious van with ski racks! This actually proved so handy as Hakuba is very spread out, with 9 different mountains which you can only really move between by car/shuttle. Having a car saved us having to wait for the shuttle, and meant that often we would ski half a day on one mountain, pile into the car, and ski another half day somewhere else! It also made trips to the supermarket, chemist, etc. super easy.

    Peter and Sally were the most wonderful and attentive hosts who really have thought of everything! They went out of their way on several occasions to help our group – from booking trains/busses, arranging pick-up/drop-off of rental skis etc., offering shuttle services, finding cables we needed to play music, and even providing support to our friend who injured himself day 1!

    Wonderful Hotel, cannot wait to go back.
    Will keep it short………
    Spent a few days here mid march for some spring boarding.
    Met some great people as well as being taken care of by the AMAZING staff.
    Everything was within walking distance. Shuttle buses are also very close.
    Room was a bit small but manageable. Nice hot baths onsite (very handy after a full day on the snow).
    No need to repeat what everyone else has said.
    Great hotel, great spot and most important, Great Staff!!

    Just book it. You wont regret it.
    Thanks heaps Phoenix Hotel, we will see you again!
