Active Life Madarao Hotel

“Undergone a great new renovation” (Review)

Renovated in 2016, the beautiful, chalet-like Active Life Madarao Hotel offers a great location with Madarao Kogen Ski Resort only a 3-minute walk away. Formerly known as La Foret Shanpia, it features a garden, a terrace and free WiFi.

Ski the trees through Madarao’s famous powder. Whether you prefer groomed or ungroomed runs, Madarao’s 30 ski runs have it all. Then if that’s not enough, Madarao connects directly to Tangram to add another 15 runs – just ski left at the top.


Boot up with an espresso, power up on a hearty breakfast from our buffet then hit the powder. When you return from a hard day of skiing enjoy an exquisite French-Japanese fusion dinner prepared by our accomplished Master Chef Sasamori San fresh from Shiseido Parlour Salon De Cafe in Ginza.


After a long day of skiing share your GoPro video’s over a glass of your favourite wine/ beer in the bar. Enjoy a piping hot bath to relax those weary muscles, then follow it up with a traditional massage in our spa. There is also a beer bar that serves local craft beers.


Enjoy a great night’s sleep in our newly renovated rooms. Our beds can be curated just for you, let us know if you’d like your bed to be Hard, Firm or Dream.
