The hotel will be an RC structure with four floors above ground and three below, totaling 17,000 m2. It will have restaurants and spas.
In addition to six glamping facilities on the east side of the hotel, townhouses and villas will be built on the west side.

Peter Hahn Associates Limited is responsible for the architectural design.
On the premises, Nihon Harmony Resorts, which operates Niseko Hanazono Resort, plans to install a connecting lift to former ski resort Niseko Weiss in the future.
