Danang, Vietnam – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The highly-anticipated InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort officially opened its doors in June 2012. Tucked away on its own private bay on the Son Tra Peninsula, the stunning property boasts 197 rooms, suites and beachfront villas featuring panoramic views of the East Sea and surrounding rainforest.
The resort is the latest creation by Asia’s most renowned designer and architect, Bill Bensley. Six years in the making, the hotel’s design includes a palette of earthy colors, bold features, and striking Vietnamese inspired décor, creating an aesthetic that sets the resort apart from all other properties in the region.
InterContinental Danang’s vibrant design continues through each space, including 168 classic and premium rooms, 16 Atrium Suites with large terraces and daybeds, six Villas with private pools and sundecks, four Penthouses with private pools, two Spa Lagoon Retreat Villas and one Royal Residence By The Sea, which comes with a separate dining area, bar and private pool. Expansive bathrooms offer double-basin vanities, deep-soaking marble bathtubs and separate walk-in rain showers.
Gourmet French dining is offered at La Maison 1888, helmed by three-star Michelin chef Michel Roux. The resort is also home to two additional restaurants and bars, including Citron, which features private dining booths that suspend over the hillside (pictured above).
Guests can swim in the bay or outdoor pools and participate in a range of entertainment and recreation activities. Planet Trekkers, InterContinental’s signature kid’s club, is available for the younger guests, while business visitors will have access to The Summit, a spectacular meeting space set within the surrounding hillside that can accommodate up to 250 guests. Thai-based, Harnn Heritage Spa will begin treatments in October with the spa opening in its entirety in December.
Exploration is welcomed at the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Sites of The Imperial City of Hue, The Old Town of Hoi An and the My Son ruins located kilometers from the resort. Danang International Airport is conveniently located 30 minutes away.
Additional benefits include complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the resort and shuttle service into Danang City and Hoi An Ancient Town. Special Honeymoon and Meeting rates are also available.
