After Koharu Resorts that i stayed in last year, we decided on Gakuto Villas who are owned by the same group. Clean, spacious, well equipped, warm lodging that makes the whole experience at Hakuba heavenly. If you ever book a stay here, pack light, you dont need much as you will find that you are almost at home.

I had a week in the Gakuto villas with my wife and 3 kids, and we had a great stay. The villas are each a great size, accommodating 5 of us and all of our ski gear very comfortably. The only downside is they are quite close together so you need to remember to pull the curtains for any privacy....

This was our second stay at this wonderfully beautiful villa and it did not disappoint. The facility here is great for a ski holiday - complete with underfloor heating, cooking facility, washing machine in a modern setting. If you come during the main ski season they are on route for a free bus to ski lifts at Happo One. The...

We decided to book the villas for the end of season in what turned out to be the worst for snow for 20 years. The villas themselves are just what we needed although my one comment would be some blackout blinds in the bedrooms since we awoke each day at sunrise, which in this case was around 05.30! The shuttle...

Thank you for your kind review and for staying with us at Gakuto Villas. We will definitely look into the sky lights in our next upgrade plans, thank you for letting us know. Unfortunately this season's snowfall was disappointing and we really do hope to have the chance to welcome you back at Gakuto Villas with better snow!

We had stayed at Koharu (sister hotel in Hakuba) and had high expectations. The villas are in a great location with views, a free hotel shuttle to local areas and on the bus line to the ski resorts. The villas themselves were well equipped, very warm and comfortable for our family of 5. The service from the staff was exceptional...

Our group ranged from 4 years old to 72, so comfort and convenience were very high up our priority list.

“We had Villa02, which received a bit of noise on the Saturday night with revelling skiiers heading home - perhaps the higher numbers, off the street, would not suffer this. But I only mention it for people who would prefer absolute quiet - we loved being so close to the bus stop!”
