InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Hotel


Long before you get to the details of InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula, you know you have a spectacular resort on your hands. In Da Nang, jutting out into the East Vietnam Sea in an area known as Monkey Mountain – famed for red-shanked douc langur – it has the golden sandy bay on its doorstep (700m of it a private beach), with the warm waters of the sea lapping up on its stunning shoreline. The gym, pools and rooms are all luxury-class, and then you come to the details: such as three-Michelin-star chef Pierre Gagnaire having La Maison 1888 here (sharing the dining offering with seafood and Vietnamese specialists), and the resort being the work of one of the world’s most respected architects, Bill Bensley – two names that don’t associate themselves with just any project, this place is special. As is the location, just an hour north of Hoi An and two south of Hué. AM.
