This was my third visit in forth years and this place never gets old - it has an amazing warm feel, with an awesome crew! The food and bar is a perfect area to relax, recharge and rest. Plus a local Onsen five minutes walk away or the Hot Tub in the garden!!!!
The phat house is an awesome place to stay if your looking to ski or snowboard in Hukuba. The lodge is centrally located within the valley and provides heaps of options to access all the various mountains with their shuttle buses. All the staff are really friendly and always accomodating and I would definitely recommend it!!! Their restaurant serves great food and the lodge offers a relaxing atmosphere. I’ll be heading back next year for sure.
Rocked up to Hakuba under the weather, Phoebe the absolute legend picked me Up from the station and took me straight to the pharmacy. Sorted me out with some sick translation and ended up in some Good times at the bar. Phatty is a sick place to unwind after a huge day on the Slopes. Staff are sick and the beers are cold. 10/10 would recommend. Only thing is, the house is a tiny bit out of town. They have a shuttle that takes you in though so no dramas.
We have been going to the Phat House for the last five years, and each year is better than the last. This place is awesome, the staff go above and beyond to make your stay memorable. The atmosphere here is so friendly, everyone gets together at night and swaps stories from the days riding, over great food and music. There is even a jib park next to the house for frothers that haven*t had there fill for the day. A hot tub to soak the weary bones after a big day and Mo making some mad cocktails, makes for the best times. They even take you to the snow and pick you up at the end of the day. If you stay anywhere else in Hakuba, its definately your loss..
Hands down best accommodation I’ve ever had! The crew were so welcoming and helpful in getting you to the best spots on the best days and making sure you were the first ones on first tracks. Their shuttle bus ran down to the minute they said it would with no hiccups at all. Mo’s skills behind the bar were second to none in hyping everyone up to turn one on and have some of the funniest nights of your life. What followed with a dreadful hangover and window full of fresh powder over night was a breakfast on point and tabs barista skills to get you amped on a massive day on the mountain. They say once you visit the PHATTY you become family and that’s true to a T. With all the up most respect to each and every single person working at the The Phat House.
