12 Dec Odin Hills Alpine Luxe Village Launches In Japan’s Winter Wonderland
A new exclusive and private luxury residential village from the design-led Odin property brand offers investors a unique opportunity to join their mountain lifestyle community. Inspired by the scenic charm of traditional European ski resorts such as Verbier, Gstaad and Courchevel, Odin Hills is located in Hanazono, Niseko, Asia’s dynamic winter playground on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido. The team behind some of Niseko’s most iconic properties, has envisioned a 16-hectare Japanese-European style mountain village defined by privacy, mindful luxury and active, responsible living with sweeping views of Mount Yotei.
Hanazono is one of the most dynamic, up-and-coming areas of Niseko – with the new Park Hyatt open for business and the Shinkansen bullet train connecting Niseko to the rest of Japan by 2030. Odin Hills is five minutes from the Kutchan train station and only 1 minute away from the Hanazono ski resort.
Intelligent & Sustainable Luxury
Odin Hills provides a canvas for owners to create the homes of their dreams. From private retreats for families and friends to adventure seeker’s playful dens, this is a rare opportunity to create an escape for generations to enjoy in a place of inspiring beauty.
Thoughtful design guidelines have been carefully crafted to guarantee the quality of design and preserve the breath-taking views, and Odin’s nature-inspired “intelligent luxury” ethos promotes environmental and sustainable practices such as conservation and protection of native trees and plants, energy-efficient LED lighting, high-performance thermal insulation and geothermal heat pumps for energy reduction.
Personal wellness and wellbeing have been carefully designed into the project with an integrated network of trails encouraging non-vehicular activity such as hiking and running in the summer, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.
The Odin Hills Owners Club provides complete peace of mind with a comprehensive programme of owner services and benefits, from the management of individual properties to privileged access to superior services, facilities and amenities. The Odin Hills member services team is at the ready to help with individual property management as well as dedicated concierge services such as transportation planning, ski passes, dining recommendations & bookings. Members will be granted an exclusive year-round enjoyment of the ‘O Lodge’ club with access to lounge, fitness centre, F&B, children & youth centre, an outfitters centre with outdoor equipment and member exclusive activities including first-track skiing with ski guides and access to surrounding golf clubs in the summer.
Rise of the ‘Aspen of Asia’
The unique geographical location of Niseko brings unparalleled snowfalls of world-renowned powder every year. With the influx of new hotels and foreign residential ownership, the prime land prices in Niseko have risen consistently over the past years, making it the top real estate market in Japan. Niseko is turning into a fast-growing summer destination with activities including hiking, road and mountain biking, Japanese ‘Onsen’ hot springs, rafting, fly fishing and events are on the rise with art and music festivals, marathons, bicycle racing and more.
In addition, an excellent English-language environment for retail and services, and easy access for visitors from markets such as Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Beijing, Shanghai, Manila and Seoul ensure minimal need for tiring travel across time zones. Many consider Niseko the only international-class ski resort in Asia, and few other locations are able to match this exceptional mix. The rare availability of well-located prime land in the area makes Odin Hills an investment opportunity that deserves attention from investors with a long-term interest in the Niseko market.
