Upcoming Luxe Resort in Niseko, Japan

I just came back from my short stay in Capella Singapore on Sentosa Island.  It was my first stay at a Capella hotel and I was impressed by the quality; sophisticated and sincere service, impeccable cuisine in the Chinese restaurant, beautiful architecture, lush tropical green, to name a few. 

I was thrilled to know that the hotel chain was opening a new resort in Niseko, Hokkaido, the northernmost part of Japan.  Niseko is known for one of the best powder snows in the world, and have been a popular skiing destination for foreigners and Japanese alike.   Due summer 2012, Capella Niseko is expected to be one of a handful of 5-star-class resorts in Hokkaido.  I am sure it will attract more luxe travelers from around the world. 

I am not a skier, but am already looking forward to visiting the resort.
