Welcoming Back Small Business Groups And Events At Kiroro Resort, Hokkaido

August 14, 2020 MICE No Comments Email Email

Kiroro, a pristine gem in the heart of Hokkaido, is delighted to welcome small business groups and corporate travelers back with unique experiences and packages that highlight the resort’s ideal alpine location and outdoor recreation, as well as buy-out opportunities.

The development, which consists of a Sheraton hotel, a Tribute Portfolio hotel and Yu Kiroro, a luxury condominium, is seeing an uptick in interest from small business groups seeking engagement-focused activities and meetings that bring people together.  With a spacious setting in the Yoichi mountains and a host of outdoor activities and amenities, Kiroro is the perfect destination for groups and business travelers looking to host memorable meetings and gatherings amidst fresh air and spectacular scenery.

“We have seen increasing interest in our resort for small business meetings or events.  From our idyllic location in the midst of the Yoichi mountains, Kiroro offers a wide variety of outdoor activities and amenities that are perfect for groups to do safely, and are conducive to the type of teambuilding and bonding that people have missed over the last several months.  Our extensive offerings under one roof and wide-open spaces offer peace of mind for these guests” said Hirofumi Watanabe, Hotel General Manager of Kiroro Resort.

“Our big advantage is a pristine environment. We have nature and space. Social distancing is very self-given in a destination like Kiroro, with only 500 plus rooms over 3 individual luxury accommodation settings.  We can offer the option of hosting a meeting on a hill, in the middle of a soccer field, in a forest or in one of the restaurants that is exclusively reserved. Additionally, the resort offers spacious venues including meeting rooms and lobbies with big windows that can be opened as needed.”

Nestled in the Yoichi mountains, Kiroro is an all-season alpine resort offering high end, award-winning accommodations, a charming village with dining and shopping, and a host of outdoor recreational activities and world-class relaxation services. Over the past several months in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Kiroro has implemented Japanese, International and Marriott regulations and guidelines to ensure that guests enjoy a healthy and memorable experience.

A Natural Setting for Health and Wellbeing

The Yoichi mountains are ideal for healthy outdoor activities that promote wellness, health and teambuilding – well suited for today’s new normal. Kiroro offers groups a five-star nature experience with luxury accommodations, personalized programming and access to activities like hiking, mountain biking, tennis, park golf, camping, glamping and more. In addition, Kiroro village features a lively dining district with several restaurants and bars that provide outdoor seating, perfect for socializing while keeping safe distance.

Corporate meeting organizers can work directly with a Kiroro associate dedicated to their group. Programming will be personalized for each group and will incorporate Hokkaido’s unique offerings and recreation.

Groups at Kiroro can enjoy the following types of group events, activities as well as buy-out package:

  • Hokkaido Farm to Table BBQ – Enjoy a journey to a nearby Hokkaido farm and choose local vegetables, fruits and meats; then work with your team to prepare these ingredients into a fun, outdoor BBQ meal.
