Aya Niseko Penthouse Three Bedroom with TV | Upper Hirafu

“Aya” weaving – an ancient form of fabric used for imperial and Buddhist clothing – was the architect’s inspiration for the building. Interlocking weaving decoration and design themes can be seen throughout the building – it’s essentially a work of art itself. Inside the architect has and taken every opportunity to showcase art and artistic design, and there’s even an art gallery in the building.

The Penthouse apartments and ground-floor Residences are among the biggest and most extravagantly appointed apartments in Niseko. Ranging from 3 to 5 bedrooms (all with ensuite maid’s rooms) across 220-370sqm, all these premium apartments have real onsen hot spring-fed baths. The residences are literally the closest apartments to a ski lift in Niseko.

AYA’s apartments are wonderfully spacious and exquisitely furnished with bespoke furniture and luxe-level kitchens and bathrooms. Floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows amplify the beauty of the surrounds while underfloor heating keeps the apartments wonderfully warm and cosy.  All rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and views of either the ski slopes, Mt Yotei or the snowbound forest alongside.

AYA Niseko
Location

Setting / Atmosphere

AYA Niseko’s location is literally as good as it gets. Located right on the Ace Family Run, it’s just seconds to the lifts and metres from the heart of the village. It’s a lively spot during the day as the family run is home to several of Hirafu’s ski schools, yet this pocket of Hirafu will be pleasantly quiet in the evenings as the main action is on the other side of the intersection.

Lifts / Transport

There is simply no comparison in terms of location – walk straight past the Front Desk and the ski valet will bring out your equipment. Gear up and the lifts are straight out the door. AYA Niseko also offers regular shuttles to the Welcome Center and Hirafu Gondola should you wish to circumvent the queues at the Family lift.

Restaurants / Bars

With Hirafu’s main intersection just on the other side of the Vale Niseko hotel, there is no shortage of restaurants, bars, shops and amenities just a few steps from your door. It’s a perfect base from which to dive into Hirafu’s gourmet culture, and the experienced concierge is also on-site to help guide you to all the best spots.

    Nicola O’Boyle

    We had the most amazing ski trip and it was helped by staying at Aya, gorgeous spacious and comfortable apartments, . The hotel staff were so helpful and polite nothing was too much trouble. The ski in and out was fantastic made life very easy. Ginger was lovely for lunch staff again fantastic. We all really enjoyed the Onsen. The whole family want to go back to Niseko and stay at Aya.

    Ski in ski out, ski valet, great front staff
    I had made up my mind to dislike Aya. I was unable to get prompt replies to my emails before the trip and some emails were even ignored. My girlfriends who booked via an agent had better response.

    However, upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent staff- Bonny, Verity and Juan were especially helpful and welcoming. The convenience of the ski valet and the proximity of the chairlift and ticket office were also pluses. The outdoor Onsen was a nice addition too. Go after 5 and u will likely to have it to yourself.

    Don’t bother w Ginger as their buffet was rather limited. You are better off eating in or try the cafes located near the hotel.
