Hidden in the hills of Monkey Mountain in the heart of the Son Tra Peninsula nature reserve, InterContinental Danang is not so much a resort hotel as a living work of art. Set in 37 hectares of hillside gardens with panoramic views of the East Sea, every inch of this luxury resort is the stunning creation of star architect Bill Bensley from Bensley Design Studios and as a consequence is as iconic in design as it is singular in concept.
Gourmet travellers will appreciate La Maison 1888 restaurant by multi-Michelin starred Michel Roux and its outstanding wine cellar, while those looking for a wellbeing haven will head to the HARNN Heritage Spa which is set around a private lagoon and treat tired hands and feet to the ultimate pedicure by ‘podiatrist to the stars’ Bastien Gonzales.
Billed as the place “where myth meets luxury”, it’s an easy drive from InterContinetnal Danang to UNESCO world heritage sites of Hoi An, Hue and My Son (Vietnam’s Angkor Wat) making it the perfect base for travellers seeking an experience that connects them to the heart of central Vietnam. Opened in 2012, this truly iconic 197 room beach resort has already been named one of the best new hotels in the world by Conde Nast Traveller USA; included in the Luxury 50 by World Spa and Travel; awarded Best New Luxury Hotel by World Luxury Hotel Awards; and voted Asia’s Leading New Resort and Vietnam’s Leading Resort by the World Travel Awards 2013.
