Kimamaya Lodge in Niseko Hirafu, Japan

February 14, 2012 by

Kimamaya, which means ‘be yourself’ in Japanese, is an elite luxury lodge with just a few rooms. There are nine of them, to be exact. Kimamaya by Odin is one of the most laid back definitions of luxury you’ll ever find.

Located in the heart of Niseko Hirafu, Japan’s celebrated ski sanctuary on the northern island of Hokkaido, this is a place where you will be greeted as a friend into a private home.

The thinking behind Andrew Bell’s designs for the nine delightful rooms at Kimamaya is minimalism itself: warm, welcoming, and stunning.

There are four designs to chose from and they have all been planned with extreme care for your luxury and happiness. From colors, textures and materials, to lighting and accessories. The finest down beddings and cotton linens have been hand-picked to quietly envelop you to sleep after a lengthy day on the mountain. In addition, you can choose from three types of pillows: soft, medium, and hard.

The lofts highlight an in-room mezzanine and have room for four adults (plus one child if required). And while the audiovisual set-up lets you indulge on after-ski movies, connectivity helps you post the latest photos from the slopes on Facebook. Every room is prepared with sensible ensuite bathrooms featuring rain showers and toilets.

After a long day our in nature, you deserve a relaxing evening. Guests are welcomed to come to Kimamaya for a Japanese back massage, shiatsu, aromatherapy or full body massage in their sanctuary of tranquility.

If the adoration of food is the vital vice then Kimamaya’s “Barn by Odin” could be your ultimate vice institution. Located in a striking building enthused by conventional Hokkaido farm architecture, the Barn offers an all-season alpine food and wine fare in Niseko’s heartfelt genuine bistro atmosphere.

If you want a taste of what Kimamaya is like, imagine yourself…

Lean back.
Put your feet up and take a deep breath.
Grab your glass of wine and lose yourself in the dancing flames of the fireplace as the snow falls outside the window.
