There have been a few changes to the village since winter. Plans have been released for a new International 5-star ski-in ski-out hotel that will take the place of the Kogen and J-First hotels which were located next to the Welcome Centre. With a little bit of research we have discovered that the international hotel chain that will replace the two hotel icons will be the luxurious Capella. Capella has some of the most luxurious hotels and resorts in the world in places such as Ixtapa (Mexico) and Singapore. Most of the 80 rooms in this new 5-star resort will offer private onsens with picturesque views while the hotel consists of speciality restaurants, spa/wellness centre, après-ski lounge and retails shops. 360Niseko has been doing a great job photo documenting the demolition of Nogen and J-First. Check out some of the photos below.
