Hokkaido Tourism Management confirmed as manager for luxury Skye Niseko development.
Summit Properties have announced the appointment of Hokkaido Tourism Management (HTM KK), the leading Niseko-based management company, as the hotel operator for their landmark development Skye Niseko.
Lucas Fuller, CEO of Summit Properties & Matt Dening, Managing Director of HTM, formally confirmed the arrangement on September 6, 2017.
Skye Niseko will be the first privately owned condominium-hotel located entirely within the Hokkaido National park. The property’s unique location, positioned above the village of Hirafu, forms the basis of the exclusive Skye Niseko experience, and provides skiers with direct ski in–ski out access to all major Grand Hirafu lift systems.
Due for completion in Q3 2018, Skye Niseko features 105 apartments & penthouses and extensive amenities including Hirafu’s largest restaurant & bar, delicatessen & coffee shop, onsen, spa, fitness centre, ski valet and a substantial retail offering including ski and snowboard rental.
Mr Fuller said, “The selection of the manager to deliver on our vision for this best-in-class development was made after an extensive regional and international selection process. HTM’s leading position in the local market where they operate a number of Niseko’s premier brands, including hotel and condominium management, transport and ski school made them a clear choice for Skye Niseko and we are very pleased to have engaged them in this critical role.”
Mr Dening commented “We feel very privileged to be appointed to manage Skye Niseko which has already set many firsts for the Niseko area, not least being the first property situated entirely in the National Park and of course the location benefits this brings. Skye Niseko represents a new pinnacle in the hospitality industry in the Niseko area, an exciting combination of services, location and design. We look forward to delivering an owner and guest experience second to none”.
The iconic location has been enhanced through designs provided by the combination of two premier architectural practices, Architectus of Australia and ISA Architects of Japan. Interior design, embracing a Japanese aesthetic blended with practical luxury, is supplied by both Pike Withers of Australia and global hotel interiors specialist Wilson Associates.
