About the Resort
The InterContinental® Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is located near three UNESCO World Heritage Sites and set among the pristine beaches and unspoiled forests of Son Tra Peninsula. The charming old town of Hoi An, is only 30 km away, and Hue, the capital of Vietnam’s last dynasty, the Nguyen, is just around 100 km to the north.
The Son Tra Peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty,and is a government protected area. The peninsula covers 3,000 square kilometers and is home to over 300 varieties of plants, many rare and endangered species of animals. The InterContinental® Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is also called Mythical Monkey Mountain, and if you get up before it starts to get very hot, you’ll be able to get a peak of the monkeys up-close.
Worth mentioning about the resort is, that the spectacular and colourful interior design is by the Harvard-educated, Bangkok-based architect Bill Bensley. TIME magazine called him “the king of exotic luxury resorts” and named him one of its top five hospitality designers worldwide. Bensley took great delight in blurring the lines between high and low culture, incorporating humble village details into the most luxurious of settings. The result is a one-of-a-kind spread across four levels—Heaven, Sky, Earth and Sea.
The InterContinental® Danang Sun Peninsula Resort offers penthouses and villas, Club Intercontinental rooms and suites, Son Travel rooms & terrace suites, and classic rooms and suites for accommodation. All have spectacular views from the Mythical Monkey Mountain.
There are several dining opportunities at the resort to satisfy all gastronomical needs. For instance: enjoy casual seafood at the beach restaurant, Barefoot; a spectacular breakfast with a view to die for at Citron, or enjoy fine dining at La Maison 1888 – amongst Vietnams top restaurants. Moreover, enjoy a glass of vintage champagne in Buffalo Bar located in La Maison 1888 or a colourful cocktails in the uniquely designed, L_O_N_G bar.
If you feel like cooling down, take a dip in the blue water of the private 700-meter beach, in the signature infinity L_O_N_G pool (for adults only) or in the Resort Garden Pool with kids.
