About Lotte Arai Resort Hotel

The Lotte Arai Resort Hotel provides delightfully luxe accommodation at the base of the impressive Lotte Arai Ski Resort.

The resort hotel consists of two adjacent buildings, The Arai and The Lodge. Both buildings offer deluxe western-style accommodations, and you can utilise the extensive facilities and services of both hotel “wings”.

The Lotte Arai Resort Hotel is rather unique for accommodation at a Japanese ski resort. The hotel wasn’t built during the bubble era. Instead it is modern and luxurious, and has all the elements that discerning skiers and snowboarders would seek.

Where is the Lotte Arai Resort Hotel?

Both hotel wings are located at the base of the Arai Ski Resort. You can ski in to the hotel and it’s just a minute walk to get to the gondola building.

Lotte Arai Resort is located in the Niigata Prefecture of Honshu Japan, and just a little north of Myoko Kogen. To get there from Narita Airport you can catch the train to Tokyo (or Ueno) and then the bullet train to Joetsumyoko train station. The latter takes about 110 minutes.

Lotte Arai Resort is 15km southeast of the Joetsumyoko train station, and from there you can get one of the free shuttles (or a taxi).

To get to Arai from Myoko Kogen, there’s a Myoko shuttle that does a couple of trips a day between Akakura Onsen and Arai Resort (the trip takes about 50 minutes).

The beautiful Japanese restaurant
The Arai Resort Hotel is very unique for a Japanese ski resort. In a country where many hotels and ski resorts were built in the bubble era and are now looking rather dull and dated, the Arai Resort Hotel offers very modern and delightfully luxurious lodgings. It is a very grand hotel and no expense has been spared in renovating and building this super luxe hotel. The staircase in The Lodge building is fit for a princess, the day spa complex is exquisite, and the other onsen facilities are simply beautiful.

The hotel had only been operating for a few weeks, and there were a couple of facilities not open yet, but otherwise the hotel was fully operational and the level of service was very impressive, especially considering how new the hotel was. Many of the staff speak some English, which makes life easier for Anglophones without compromising the Japanese experience.

The hotel buildings are very conveniently located at the base of the ski resort, right near the gondola station, the beginner chair lift, and the magic carpet for the tubing hill.

We stayed in a lovely superior twin room which was reasonably spacious (especially the bathroom) and offered lovely views towards the ski slopes. The beds were incredibly comfortable and we didn’t hear any noise from the corridor or adjoining rooms, allowing for a blissful sleep.

The hotel had many great amenities but the two (yes one wasn’t enough!!) spa, pool and onsen complexes would have to be one of the major highlights. There were multiple onsen baths to choose from, our favourite being the outdoor jetted onsen with lovely water cascading down illuminated steps and a little sassa grass planted near the bath for good Japanese effect. The swimming pools were also impressive.

Then there was the food – oh my! Much of the dining comes at luxurious prices and for that, you’ll be rewarded with plenty of culinary choices of exemplary quality. The western style buffet was the best buffet we’ve ever had (and we’ve done a lot of buffets!) but the piece de resistance was the Japanese restaurant that offered amazingly exquisite cuisine.

The value for the hotel is currently great (food and accommodation are pricey but of superb quality), and as the ski resort and hotel are in its infancy and the prices discounted, it wouldn’t be surprising if the rates increase as more people discover Lotte Arai.
