is pleased to announce an exciting addition to our Japan winter season – HAVEN Niseko – a brand new boutique luxury chalet-hotel for the 2016/17 accommodation selection, reflecting the heart and soul of Niseko.

Positioned spectacularly and located conveniently in the middle village, HAVEN is over 4 levels offering studios, 2BDR and 4BDR Apartments and two stunning Penthouses of a generous 240sqm. It’s spacious living and dining rooms enjoy floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of Mt. Yotei as well as the Grand Hirafu ski runs. The unique edge setting against silver birch forest is inspired by Riccardo Tossani to create an architecture of expansive glassed in spaces and projected rooms over indented terraces all recalling the crystalline alpine character of Niseko’s mountain geology and climate.

“We are thrilled to have been awarded the management of HAVEN Niseko from this coming season” said Belinda White, General Manager at “The opportunity to showcase this elegant, modern property for winter season 2016/17 is truly exciting.  Our dedicated team delivers a proactive style that fosters innovation, collaboration and inspired experiences and we are delighted to work with the team at Riccardo Tossani Architecture to offer this special property. I could not be prouder to work alongside the team and partners to unveil this extraordinary, modern icon that will be the pride of Niseko.”

HAVEN benefits from Riccardo Tossani Architecture’s (RTA) signature approach to create an exceptional design that draws on dynamic local influences as well as the natural surroundings while celebrating village culture and artistic virtuosity.  For HAVEN this approach inspired an elegant and unpretentious style by using a multifaceted, color-shifting architectural skin together with copious natural Japanese timbers to recall the ever-changing nature of the adjacent silver birch forest, as well as promote the vibrant characteristics of the surrounding area. In so doing, Riccardo Tossani Architecture have created an eclectic and completely modern venue. World-renown structural engineers, ARUP Japan were selected by RTA to enable thrusting cantilevered terraces as well as large expanses of glass unencumbered by massive columns and walls.

The team at is passionate about providing the best Japan snow holiday experiences and look forward to sharing their knowledge to ensure guests have everything they need for a memorable vacation in Niseko, the powder capital of the world.  For booking and enquiries please go to or email the team at [email protected]
