Monaile Hotel Madarao
The Monaile Hotel offers very good value for money accommodation at the Madarao Ski Resort
The Monaile Hotel is partnered with the Madarao Kogen Hotel
. Check-in occurs at the Madarao Kogen Hotel, and the concierge services and other amenities of the flagship hotel can be accessed by Monaile guests.
Where is the Monaile Hotel?
The Monaile Hotel is located in the Madarao village about an 8 minute walk or quick shuttle bus down from the Madarao Kogen Hotel, the central hub of Madarao Kogen. The shuttle between the two hotels operates on-demand and you can call the shuttle at the reception of either of the hotels.
Monaile is almost ski-in ski-out via a beginner trail. A half minute skate or walk from the hotel drops you down onto a trail that leads to the main base area of Madarao Mountain Resort
. To get back to the hotel, you can ski along with the Utopia run (which is so mellow it’s almost flat!) and then it’s just a 1-2 minute walk up to the hotel.
Monaile has 50 hotel rooms that are all very generously sized.
Western Twin Room
: two large single beds and two extra sofa beds – 1-4 guests
two large single beds and two futon beds on the tatami (ie combination western and Japanese beds) - 1-4 guests
large room - 6-11 guests
All rooms have a private bathroom and many offer gorgeous views up to the mountain. The rooms are equipped with a fridge, flat screen TV, seating area, kettle and green tea set. Toiletries and yukata robes are included.
One or two staff might speak English, and you have the full services of the English speaking concierge staff at the Madarao Kogen Hotel
Monailes has the following facilities:
- ski and snowboard storage
- indoor onsen with a nearby lounge area
- small gift shop
- the all important vending machines!
The on-site restaurant offers a simple buffet breakfast that includes a combination of Japanese and western fare. For dinner the restaurant also offers a buffet meal with both Japanese and western items. Accommodation packages can include just breakfast, or you can get dinner included as well.
If you want a more grandiose buffet dinner (or breakfast) or upscale Japanese set menu restaurant, you can head up to the Madarao Kogen Hotel. There are also a few other Madarao dining
options around the Madarao village, or you can head down to the town of Iiyama.
