The FINANCIAL -- 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. According to InterContinental Hotels Group, 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.
