Fodor's Review

Hip, modern, and utterly Japanese, the Claska offers a premier boutique hotel experience. The tiered, boxy exterior gives the building a space-age feel. But Western-style guest rooms have a lovely warmth to them with gorgeous hardwood floors, tall white walls, and minimalist furniture reminiscent of Muji designs; the Japanese accommodations are lighted by paper lanterns and outfitted with small cushions for tea service above a tatami floor. Both keep a subdued color palate

of white, gray, and brown, which keeps the space light and airy. The D.I.Y. rooms feature interiors by noted Japanese designers. For meals, Kiokuh serves contemporary Japanese dishes by day and operates as a cocktail lounge in the evenings. An adorable gift shop sells well-crafted eating utensils and acts as a gallery space. The hotel's remote location, however, makes access a challenge, and the rooms are limited, so book well in advance.
