Opening in December of 2023, the snow resort and its multitude of facilities are perfect for couples, families and anyone else looking for an action-filled holiday without compromising the comfort of a luxury experience.
French company Club Med is a travel and tourism company that specializes in all-inclusive packages for its clients. Focusing on luxury experiences, the company covers locations across the globe. From sandy beaches to impressive slopes, Club Med works consistently to provide a high-value service that is unparalleled by any other travel experience. However, it is their new addition – the Kiroro Grand – that is gaining popularity. With many dates already fully booked, it is clear that the Japanese resort is of high interest.
Accommodation at Club Med Kiroro Grand encapsulates the cozy mountain experience while tying in the local Japanese culture. The resort adopts the ancient Ainu tradition by designing rooms with local materials and Japanese-style furniture. Whether you choose to stay in one of their superior rooms, deluxe rooms or suites; the spaces maintain a contemporary and luxurious feel, making the experience comfortable as possible. The Kiroro Grand resort itself is self-explanatory: grand. Magically hidden in layers of snow in the winter months, the expansive buildings alone host a homely escape from the frosty environment around it. The Club Med package includes a full board gourmet cuisine, open bar and snacking, as well as day and night entertainment – taking care of all your dining needs at a luxurious level. The main restaurant, Yoichi, is made up of themed zones that offer an international spread made by internationally trained, expert chefs. Moreover, the Ebisu and the Kaen, are two specialty restaurants – the former offering sushi in a more casual dine-in environment, and the latter a Yakiniku-style restaurant with must-try grilled meats. Yotei, the main bar, is where many guests go to unwind and relax after a big day out in the snow. Coupled with regular stage performances, games and a range of other entertainment, Yotei is the lively hub of Kiroro Grand.
Outside the luxurious resort, there are a multitude of activities to keep everyone entertained. Included in a Club Med stay at Kiroro Grand, are ski or snowboard passes, ski or snowboard classes, children’s clubs and hiking. Here, Club Med takes care of the hassle, allowing more time for guests to enjoy and take in the wonders of Japan’s snowy environment – right at the doorstep of the resort. If you wish to venture out, the coastal town of Otaru is only a forty-minute drive. Known for its sake distilleries, glasswork, and factories that produce traditional goods, Otaru is definitely worth visiting in the culturally rich region.
So, Club Med Kiroro Grand, nestled in the quiet and beautiful slopes of Japan’s North, is an adventure-packed and luxuriously designed experience worth indulgence.
