Tucked away in a private bay on the Son Tra Peninsula of central Vietnam lies the luxurious InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort. A place where myth meets luxury, if you’re looking for the resort that has everything; this is it. Yes, it has a selection of 197 beautiful rooms and suites, gourmet restaurants, sleek bars and a top-class spa – but so do countless other hotels. What those hotels don’t have? A quirky tram to transcend the resort’s four levels, a Bastien Gonzalez PEDI:MANI:CURE Studio, Vietnam’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, the M Rouge karaoke bar – or the M Nightclub and Lounge for that matter. Danang Sun Peninsula really does have it all – and then some.
Vietnamese legend has it that such is the beauty of the Son Tra peninsula that fairies have been attracted to its beaches – and whilst we can’t speak for the fairies, we certainly found it impossible to stay away. Perfectly located midway between north and south, you are in prime position to explore the quaint lanes of ancient shophouses in Hoi An as well as the splendour of the Nguyen dynasty in Hue Imperial City. Just 30 minutes from Danang International Airport, it won’t be long before you arrive at this little slice of paradise.
Whether its a getaway for the whole family or a romantic trip for two, Danang Sun Peninsula has something for everybody. Each of the 197 rooms and suites is pure indulgence, with views that make the most of the dramatic setting, interiors draped in Vietnamese elegance and a bold black and white colour scheme given a hint of Bill Bensley whimsy with splashes of bright colour. For an unmistakably Vietnamese setting, opt for one of the Seaside Villas on the Rocks where you can enjoy the dramatic surrounds of coastline boulders and towering mountains from the comfort of your private infinity pool.
Why We Like It
It’s easy to while away the days at the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort. But if we were you? Try your hand at sailing a basket boat for a truly authentic Vietnamese experience before heading to the HARNN Heritage Spa for their signature ‘Journey of Marble Mountains’ treatment and discover which element your spirit embodies. In the evening, you’re spoilt for choice between Michelin-starred dining at La Maison 1888 or hovering above the bay in a Hon La booth at Citrus. One thing’s for sure – no two days will ever be the same here.
