Matiè Niseko sets new standard for luxury ski-in, ski-out resorts in Asia’s premiere winter destination

South Korean developer, Hanwha Hotels and Resorts, has received building approval to start construction of ‘Niseko’s most inspired ski-in, ski-out destination’ – Matiè Niseko – a uniquely luxurious development with unparalleled ski-in, ski-out access to the Grand Hirafu slopes via its own private chairlift.


With building approval received on December 28, 2020 – and the entire project planned for completion by 2023 – Matiè Niseko will set a new standard for Niseko from its prestigious location in Hirafu’s Upper Village.

Designed by one of the oldest comprehensive architectural design firms in Japan, Nikken Sekkei, the 120-unit resort will be built on the former Kogen Hotel site, on more than 6400sqm of land. Matiè Niseko will boast over 21,000sqm of livable space across seven storeys, and an underground car park.

The Matiè Niseko brand’s foundations are guided by the unique textures that comprise an individual’s life. The development’s name is derived from the term “matière”, which refers to the various materials that — when combined — create a distinctive piece of art. Matiè Niseko offers an environment — a canvas — where guests can feel the very essence of their own experiences, unburdened by noise from the outside world.

Rooms at Matiè Niseko will range from refined studio spaces with immediate access to the ski fields, to expansive five-bedroom penthouse apartments with stunning views of the iconic Mt. Yotei and the surrounding ski resort.

Optimally positioned at one of the highest vantages of Grand Hirafu Village, Matiè Niseko offers a luxurious escape right on the slopes of the resort.

Located a few minutes’ walk from the Hirafu Welcome Centre, and with direct access to the high-speed Hirafu Gondola, Matiè Niseko’s location redefines what it means to have Niseko’s world-famous powder snow at one’s doorstep.

The resort offers a new standard in onsite comfort and convenience never before seen in Niseko – with comprehensive amenities including gourmet dining, ski equipment rental, retail stores, a relaxation spa and luxurious infinity onsen, private owner lounge, kids club, and underground parking.

Matiè Niseko developer, Seoul-based Hanwha, is a premiere international leisure and service provider of resorts and hotels. Hanwha’s landmark project, THE PLAZA, was the first in South Korea to join the ‘Autograph Collection’,  a luxury portfolio owned by Marriott International – and was selected as one of the Top 25 Hotels for Luxury and Best Service by the TripAdvisor 2019 Travelers’ Choice Awards.
