Kitadori En-Suite Bathroom with Outdoor View | The Escarpment

No expense has been spared making Kitadori the most luxurious of Niseko holiday properties. Designer furniture complements the alpine inspired interior, featuring plenty of wood and natural tones. The western-style kitchen is capable of serving up a feast – if you can drag yourself away from the local restaurants!

A media room with Apple TV and on-demand movies and TV will allow you to make the most of your entertainment experiences. And of course there is free wifi throughout the house and a ski storage and drying room.

The Escarpment is a master planned estate running along either side of a single road that runs parallel to the bottom border of Hirafu village. Between The Escarpment and Mt Yotei is nothing but rice fields, forests and wilderness. The estate is characterised by its seclusion and separation from the hustle and bustle of the village proper, and the resulting feeling of immersion in the Hokkaido wilderness. All the power lines are buried down here and you’ll be sharing your holiday with just a handful of other guests in the precinct.

By car it’s just three or four minutes and you’ll be clicking in to your skis or strapping on your snowboard and on the lifts in no time.
