The initial business was established in 2007 by Chi Guillemette, a long time visitor to the area, to introduce the wonders of Niseko to her network of friends living in Asia via Niseko Resorts Group. The company evolved from development to property management and now includes a team providing hospitality and event management to thousands of guests per year.
The company mission has stayed consistent; indulge owners with an affordable, comfortable and luxurious holiday home, provide guests with a professional and memorable experience, be charitable and a positive contributor to the Niseko community, and offer employees a career that emphasizes family, learning, and well being as highly as profit.
In 2008, Niseko Resorts Group started development in Country Resort Niseko, a community of over 40 chalets in a peaceful valley nestled in between Mt. Yotei and the Niseko`s Mt. Annupuri. The company earned the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2013 for its hospitality in Country Resort and has consistently been ranked in the top 5 out of >100 properties since 2010.
In 2010, Akazora, a 26 unit apartment building in the heart of Hirafu village, was conceived. Completed in 2013, the stylish design, onsite management, and convenient location helped the company earn Akazora a top 5 ranking on TripAdvisor in its first year of operation.
In 2011, the The Orchards Niseko site was acquired and development began in 2013. The Orchards is a truly unique site that boasts the perfect combination of stunning views of the surrounding mountains and close proximity to the ski lifts, and is endowed with mature cherry trees, a small lake, and natural flora surrounding each plot of land. The Orchards Niseko has twice won the award for Asia’s Best Resort Residencies, Japan and has been featured in the press in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, and Japan.
