The InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort has been redefining the luxury resort experience ever since its opening in June this year. The open, calming resort lies nestled in its own private bay on the Son Tra Peninsula and is home to 197 beautifully equipped rooms, suites and beachfront villas that sprawl across the property’s lush landscaping. Private terraces offer breathtaking views of the East Sea and come framed with the diverse fauna of the surrounding rainforest.
The latest project of one of Asia’s most renowned architects Bill Bensley, the luxury resort has been six years in the making. This dedicated time commitment reveals itself through the intricate and efficient functional and aesthetic details that define the property. Earthy hues, colorful regional textiles, rattan furnishings and distinctive local décor frame the 168 classic and premium rooms, 16 Atrium Suites with large terraces and daybeds, six villas and four penthouses with private pools and sundecks, two Spa Lagoon Retreat Villas and one Royal Residence By The Sea, which comes with a separate dining area, bar and private pool. All rooms come adorned with smart and chic amenities that cater to the business- and leisure-minded alike.

Other dining options include Citron, which offers an alternative dining experience with private dining booths that seem to hang over the hillside, and Barefoot Café, a beachfront dining retreat.
Guests are encouraged to take advantage of the properties expansive list of entertainment and recreation options that offers every kind of ocean and rainforest related activity, as well as the world-acclaimed Montgomerie and Danang golf clubs. The luxurious, Thai-based Harnn Heritage Spa is set to begin treatments in October and will have its full opening in December.
