From the ‘white tea’ scent to the heavenly beds, the Westin has everything you’d expect from this global, luxury brand. The 23 storey hotel towers over the beautiful Hokkaido landscape, so the higher you are, the better the views - the more snow you see.

Situated between the East and West Mountains of Rusutsu, the Westin Rusutsu Resort offers easy access to the slopes with the ski lifts to East Mt. just outside or you can catch the short monorail to West Mt. (although it’s generally quicker to walk the three minutes across the road).

As with everywhere you go in Japan, you’ll receive wonderful Japanese hospitality and at the Westin the service that little bit extra, so you’ll be well and truly looked after throughout your stay.

What we like about the Westin

- 23 storeys mean fantastic views from the upper floors especially
- Outdoor onsen style spa pool
- Fantastic Japanese restaurant Kazahana

Worth knowing

- There's a quirky monorail to the rest of the resort

- Easy access to the East Mountain

Mads Brand & Digital Manager Fantastic for tree skiing and not getting lost. Always different routes to take that lead down to the same lift, great for mixed ability groups. View Mads' profile
