Ramat Niseko ski lodge is located in the Izumikyo 2 precinct of Hirafu Village in Niseko. The lodge has a colonial appearance with large spacious bedrooms. The lodge offers common areas for people to sit back and relax or meet other travellers.
The lodge has plenty of facilities on offer, as well as friendly and accommodation staff making it the perfect home away from home. One of the highlights is the fantastic bar area with a free pool table and darts, and entertainment facilities including a huge TV with cable channels, internet, PS3 and Nintendo Wii to keep you entertained. The bar has three different beers on tap as well as a well-stocked liquor cabinet. They also offer bar snacks form 6-9pm daily. It’s a great place to hang out with new-found friends after a tiring day carving up the mountain.
The lodge offers a hearty breakfast daily, which is included in the price, that will certainly fill you up before you head out for the day. The breakfast selection includes eggs, cereals and muesli, porridge, yoghurt, fresh fruit, toast with a selection of spreads, and tea, coffee and juice. Evening meals are prepared on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays, at an additional charge, and the menu ranges from Thai, to Mexican, DIY sushi (the staff will show you how!) and the good old lamb roast. The Ramat Niseko ski lodge also has a commercial grade kitchen for guests to cook up a storm.
