The hotel was built in 2012, with a second wing added in 2015. It was built by Hong Kong couple Sir Gordon and Lady Ivy Wu, who had been coming to Niseko for 20 years and wanted to permanently invest in the area. Chalet Ivy is the end result, and reflects the style and class of Hong Kong’s elite. The luxurious lobby entrance sets the tone for the rest of your stay, complete with a high ceilings, grand piano and fresh flowers.

Complete with communal and selected in-room onsen, restaurant, bar and ski concierge, Chalet Ivy states its aim as being “your home away from home in Hirafu”. It comprises 33 spacious double or twin guest rooms, ranging in area from 27 to 70sqm. The elegant styling that features across the rest of the hotel carries through to the bedrooms, with champagne-gold curtains and intricate forest motifs across the walls. Every room enjoys views of either Mt Yotei or the Hirafu ski slopes, which are beautifully lit up for night skiing until 9pm at night during peak season.

One of the nice features of Chalet Ivy is its Simmons-brand beds, one of the world’s leading bed manufacturers. After a day on the slopes, an onsen and a good night’s sleep in Chalet Ivy will ensure you are ready to do it all again the next day.

Setting / Atmosphere

Chalet Ivy is located right in the middle of the main street in the heart of the Upper Hirafu Village. There are shops, bars and restaurants all around so expect busy streets and roads.

Restaurants / Bars

There are a dozen restaurants within a couple of minutes walk, and half a dozen onsens to try not much further. If you want a comfortable hotel stay with everything at your doorstep, Chalet Ivy ticks pretty much every box.

    I love Chalet Ivy. The rooms are really warm, spacious and some come with the traditional onsen baths. The property has a gym for in-house guests online and private onsen rooms for up to 6 guests. You can also pay Y5,000 for 30 minutes if you are not staying at Chalet Ivy but would like to try an onsen. Breakfast is served buffet style and amazing. The food really is incredible so again recommend trying the meals in their restaurants even if you are not staying here.

    We have just arrived home from our second stay at Chalet Ivy and are delighted that we chose to stay there a second time. Everything just works. We rent reception as we approached the “Welcome Centre” and we were picked up in the time it took to unload the bus. Breakfast is a great start – one of the best omelettes I have ever had. Mini-van to and from the slopes with no waiting. Clean and comfortable rooms. Incredible bathrooms. Great locker room service. Relaxing in house private Onsen. We will be back!

    Chalet Ivy has everything you need for a ski holiday in Niseko – ski concierge and shuttle bus, friendly English speaking staff who are only too happy to help arrange restuarants and activities, and well appointed rooms. The bed was also reasonably soft for Asian standards, which was an added bonus after a long day out and about. We did find the room a little hot to sleep in initially but once we figured out how to turn down the radiator it was better. Breakfast was a good mix of Asian and Western food, and the croissants were definitely a must-try.

    This hotel was very nice. We stayed in a superior room, which was pretty big and had a large washroom. The toilet in the washroom was especially nice and had a heated seat. The free breakfast had a big spread of Western and Japanese breakfast foods. You could even cook your own hard boiled eggs. There is a free shuttle that’ll take you to .Base and the Hirafu Gondola. They also have a free shuttle service between Kutchan, the train station, and the hotel. They have a free locker room for storing your wet gear overnight and my boots were always dry the next morning. We also booked the private onsen (2000 Yen) which was a real treat. In the private onsen there’s a pool inside and outside so you can cool off outside if you need to.
