Book a Workcation at Hotel Grand Phenix
Situated in the Okushiga area of Shiga Kogen Highlands and more expansive Joshinetsu Kogen National Park, Hotel Grand Phenix is the premier accommodation in the area and perfectly setup for a long-stay ‘workcation’. Made popular over the past year for obvious reasons, ‘workcations’ have quickly gained popularity around the world as a way to continue working by doing so remotely, while enjoying the relaxation and revitalisation of a change of scene.
As Japan’s fourth largest national park, Joshinetsu Kogen is a vast landscape of alpine valleys, mixed forests, ponds, lake and marshes and multiple mountain peaks including two volcanos. A fertile and lush environment, the park is home to numerous species of birds, mammals, reptiles and insects along with countless plants including lots of alpine flowers that bloom in summer. Ascending at its highest point to over 2500 metres above sea level, the region is blessed with a refreshingly cool summer climate – with an average maximum temperature of only 21°C in August! – and beautiful waterways making it an idyllic location for a long-stay workcation.
Located deep in the park but only 4-hours from Tokyo, Hotel Grand Phenix takes inspiration from European mountain hotels in its design and overall character. Rooms are spacious and fitted with Western amenities including Western-bedding, large private bathrooms, balconies and space to work in.
