InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort
(VIETNAM) Tuesday 12 June 2012: One of South East Asia’s most anticipated new resorts, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort has opened its doors, heralding a new standard of luxury accommodation in Vietnam.
The Bill Bensley-designed InterContinental Danang is nestled within one of the region’s most exquisite locations, cascading through rainforest-covered mountain slopes that act as a natural amphitheatre for the resort’s private bay on the Son Tra Peninsula.
All 197 of the resort’s rooms, suites and beachfront villas are designed to take full advantage of their location and panoramic South China Sea views. Large terraces and shuttered windows elevate private living spaces that draw in the surrounding jungle and crystal bay, and add depth to the spacious rooms that start from 70sqm.
Taking six years to design and build, InterContinental Danang is the latest creation of one of Asia’s most celebrated resort designers, Bill Bensley. The design features a rich template of earthy colours and bold features, and marries traditional and contemporary designs with the pristine surrounding landscape. Everything, down to the in-room dining cutlery, was specifically selected to create an aesthetic that sets InterContinental Danang apart from any other Vietnamese resort.
Also highly anticipated is the arrival of the first three-star Michelin chef in Vietnam, Michel Roux at InterContinental Danang’s signature restaurant, La Maison 1888. Founder of renowned UK restaurant The Waterside Inn, Roux will bring some of the world’s most celebrated French cuisine to the Son Tra Peninsula.
La Maison 1888 is one of three restaurants and two bars spread throughout the resort. Guests can swim in the bay or one of the resort’s outdoor pools, experience Spa InterContinental and make use of the many entertainment and recreation facilities available. The resort’s youngest guests will also be delighted by InterContinental’s signature kid’s club, Planet Trekkers.
The extraordinary new resort will be bought to life through the exemplary, yet understated service that has elevated InterContinental to become one of the world’s most respected luxury hotel brands.
Now open, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is a half-hour drive from Danang International Airport, and only a few kilometres from the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of The Imperial City of Hue, The Old Town of Hoi An and the My Son ruins.
To celebrate the opening, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is offering special rates on stays between June 1, 2012 and January 1, 2013, from US$220 per night*. The rate includes complimentary daily buffet breakfast for two, high-speed Wi-Fi access, 10% off dining at the resort’s Citron Restaurant, Barefoot Café or L_o_n_g Bar, and complimentary shuttle bus service into Danang City and Hoi An Ancient Town.
*Subject to availability, blackout dates and terms and conditions apply.
