NISEKO, Japan, May 3 (Bernama) -- New World® Hotels & Resorts has been appointed by Hong Kong SAR-based real estate and development firm La Plume Niseko Resort TMK to manage New World La Plume Niseko Resort, a new luxury resort in Japan set to open in 2023. Occupying nearly nine acres within the lush forest land between Mount Yotei and Mount Annupuri in Hokkaido, New World La Plume Niseko Resort will offer travellers unparalleled access to myriad outdoor experiences, including premier skiing and golf, as well as to renowned restaurants and shops in the nearby Niseko Village. This latest announcement from New World Hotels & Resorts highlights the brand’s ambitious yet thoughtful growth strategy in the Asia region.
Designed to preserve and promote the local environment, the resort’s architecture is being led by distinguished architect Kazuko Okuyama of Daiken Design Co. Okuyama’s carefully conceived structural design scheme incorporates elements of the locale’s adventurous spirit and elegant panorama to seamlessly intermix with the surrounding mountain scenery. Of note, are Niseko’s iconic white birch trees that are thoughtfully integrated into the exterior design, along with the building’s outer glass surface that brings the outside in, showcasing the everchanging light, weather and seasons. Complemented by interiors by Norihiko Shinya, of S.D.S International Co., the property presents a contemporary aesthetic to appropriately display the grand scale of the natural landscape.
