Ha-mon will be opening for the 2020/21 winter season as a private Rental, Slope-side Chalet. Please contact us directly for more details. Opening date is December 20 2020.

To introduce a 100% Japanese cultural experience in a style that people from other cultures can identify with. We aim to soften cultural differences, rouse curiosity and bridge cultural the gaps to deliver a unique experience. We hope to not only inspire our guests but to also be inspired by you and help us open our minds to new ideas, ways of thinking and move forward together to create a better world. 

Our lodge has a distinctly Japanese feel and our rooms are no exception. Warm lighting, soft timber finishes, traditional tatami flooring and original shoji screens reflect a true Japanese style Ryokan representative of the real rural mountain village accommodation you’d expect in Japan. Our rooms are warm, have comfortable mattresses and plenty of space for all your luggage requirements; rest assured you’ll feel right at home in Ha-mon. 


Our double rooms are great couples looking for a private retreat or solo’s looking for space. They’re warm and softly appointed in traditional furnishing that you’ll feel instantly at home and comfortable in. After all a long day on the hill requires a good nights sleep and sleep well you will.



Our twin rooms are great for 2 friends, family members or couples who don’t like to share a bed. They’re warm and softly appointed in traditional furnishing that you’ll feel instantly at home and comfortable in. After all a long day on the hill requires a good nights sleep and sleep well you will.

We when say we’re a one-stop-shop we mean it and we aim to immerse you in the local area and culture all while enjoying the beautiful mountains of the Northern Alps. With that in mind we’re not just a skiing destination and we hope you glean insight into the workings of this beautiful mountain town we call home. From delicious local fare to insightful cultural activities we’ve got all the bases covered to ensure your stay here at Ha-mon is as memorable as it can be.
