JAPAN

Is this the most impressive ski chalet in Asia? Undoubtedly. One of the best in the world? For its size, most probably. Location, amenities and utter exclusivity combine to make One Happo a true one-off.

Where to start? Firstly: location. The chalet directly faces the main Happo resort gondola and Olympic slopes. 100 metres from your chalet door are the principal resort lifts: accessibility to world-class snow simply does not get any better than this.

One Happo is a James Bond fantasy made real. ipads are located discreetly throughout the property, used to control lighting or access the 250 on-demand movie library. 3d plasma tv’s retract from your bedroom ceiling at the touch of an ipad.

There is a wow-factor at every turn: the glass top pool table (the first ever imported into Japan), the floor-to-ceiling glass wine room, the transparent fireplace, bang and olufsen plasma screens and control4 home automation system…From the sleek marble cocktail bar to the teppanyaki counter and infra-red heated viewing deck….every element has been selected from the top shelf, with absolutely no expense spared. En-suited bedrooms offer views of either the mountain or the beautiful secluded Wadano forest.

This is a mountain retreat that even non-skiers will love. The huge state-of-the-art gymnasium, far-infra red sauna and onsen offer something for everyone. The gym is obscenely well equipped: 16 of the latest Technogym equipment, plus the recently released PowerPlate pro-6 - all for your exclusive usage. Nowhere else will you find an 8 person onsen with these mountain vistas and guaranteed privacy. Take the chalet 4x4 vehicle for a spin and explore the Valley...This is Alpine luxury done the Japanese way.

An uncompromising attention to detail: Vera Wang/Wedgwood china, le Creuset kitchenware, 600 count 100% Egyptian cotton sheets…Beautiful Western red cedar infuses the chalet with a cosy mountain warmth. Stainless steel, marble and extravagant use of glass lend a minimal style. These are parameters that no hotel can meet or match.
