The best Japan snowboarding experience!!

Coolest place in Hakuba!! Rooms are fantastic with the the best view. Full bar, incredible staff, great food! Walked to the mountain every day and shuttles to any other mountain I wanted to hit. Could not recommend more highly.

Who would go anywhere else in Hakuba!

Having just spent 3 nights in the Phat House. Large comfortable room, warm and cosy lounge / bar room. Cam and Bron welcomed us like family, and made our stay enjoyable, hassle free. Would recommend to all who want to visit the Hakuba area. David (New Zealand)

The Phattest Place Ever!

This was my second time staying at the Phat House and I wouldn’t stay anywhere else. The rooms were huge, with wifi and a Tv- including Netflix. The beds were comfortable and always clean. Cam and Bron and The Phat House crew were absolute legends. They always answers questions and made time to talk to me about things to do in the area. They provided free shuttles to nearly all of the mountains so I could get first tracks in the mornings. The shuttles were also available at night if we went out. The food at the Phat House was awesome. Big meals, just what you need after a big day snowboarding. There’s also a bar in house so you can have a beer afterwards. Highly recommend this place if you’re coming to Hakuba!

I stayed at The Phat House early February 2017. And from the minute i stepped through the doors i was astounded by how amazing the the place is. From the staffs positive attitude and all round great vibes. The place is located only a short walk from Iwatake mountain. But with the free shuttle service i never had to hoof it!. The room was spacious and modern with a large comfy bed and a tv with Netflix! ( made for a great wind down after a big day on the slopes). Once your rested make sure you head down the the kitchen for some of the best Aussie food i’ve had outside of Australia. Tip: order the parmy its a beast!! Special mention to chef Alex that guys a champ. All in all i wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Hakuba. The Phat House definitely made this trip that much better!

A Phat-tastic experience!

After being overwhelmed with accommodation choices in Hakuba for my snowboarding trip, I looked on TripAdvisor and found this property. It ticked all the boxes that I was looking for; amazing vibe, clean and secure and great for solo traveller. I was lucky enough to get the last room (Les Gets) and loved my entire experience. Great team, delicious onsite food, free shuttles to get you to and from the slopes (which is awesome) and a great bunch of people. It is a little way from the cluster of restaurants and hotels of Hakuba valley (in terms of walking) however shuttles are available to get you to the night life. The crew were incredible and made me feel like Phamily. I would recommend staying here in a heart beat and will definitely stay here again!
