Pavilions Hotels and Resorts, a bespoke luxury hospitality brand, has announced a major project in Niseko, an exclusive mountain destination on the Japanese island of Hokkaido.
Nestled in pinewood forests at Ginto Hirafu, with access to premium ski lifts and white powder slopes, The Ginto Residences is a US$100 million (Bt3.3 billion) development comprising a total of 31 private villas, with no single plot measuring less than 1,000 square metres.
It is the first phase of a global project composed of hotel and residential villas in aspirational travel destinations across Asia and Europe.
The project breaks ground in October 2017 with a completion date in 2019.
The Pavilions Phuket and The Pavilions Himalayas were the company's first two fully branded developments following the acquisition and renovation of The Pavilions Bali in 2001. Pavilions Hotels & Resorts was formed after subsequent acquisitions in Amsterdam, Madrid, Rome, Lisbon and Niseko.
