Cocoa – a haven as snug as its name implies – combines familiar Western holiday lifestyle comforts with tasteful Japanese touches in a cosy two-storied chalet suitable for families or groups. Extensive use of soft glowing timbers and lofty beamed ceilings create the welcoming ambience of a snow-country lodge and emphasise the Japanese design accent.

Cocoa Up Stairs | Lower Hirafu

Cocoa’s location in Lower Hirafu Village is one of the best the resort has to offer. Secluded and quiet yet with wonderful views of Mt Yotei, the chalet is only steps to the delights of a genuine Japanese hot spring onsen bath, and close to the eating, shopping and night-time action.

Built and furnished in a tasteful, modern style, the result is cosy and inviting rather than uber-chic. One of the 3 bedrooms offers the opportunity for sleeping Japanese-style, with two futon beds on tatami flooring – deliciously suited to snowy climates. With high-speed internet, flat-screen TV with cable channels, DVD and CD player, and a Bose iPod docking station the scene is set for comfy evenings in.

Cocoa has a spacious fully-equipped Western-style open-plan kitchen flowing to dining and living areas, again featuring an abundance of glowing timbers. The living-dining room’s broad windows welcome in lots of soft light and fabulous views of Mt Yotei.

Cocoa is perfectly located for a family holiday in a quiet corner of the Lower Village but beautifully placed to access the best of what Niseko offers – including the sought-after panorama of Mt Yotei.


Neatly positioned right opposite Grand Hirafu Bus Stop No 6, guests at Cocoa will have ready access to the ski lifts and other significant locations. Happily, Yukoro Onsen hot spring bath – the perfect place to soak away the day’s bumps and bruises – is just a short walk.


While staying in is a viable options with top cooking facilities and excellent entertainment options provided in-house, Cocoa is within walking distance of numerous excellent restaurants and bars. And, of course, there’s always the shuttle to take you on a gourmet extravaganza across the entire resort.

    Great value chalet in town. If you want a property close to the shuttle with easy access to shops, restaurants etc then this is it. The property now has Netflix, 3 rooms but only the 1 bathroom so ideal for a small family.
