About InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort
Hidden in the myth-filled hills of ‘Monkey Mountain’ in the heart of the Son Tra Peninsula nature reserve, the five-star InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is a work of art as much as a resort.

Set in 37 hectares of stepped gardens leading down to a private beach – dramatic views of the sea can be enjoyed from all 200 rooms – every inch of this luxury resort is the stunning creation of star architect Bill Bensley and, as a result, is unique in design and concept.

Billed as the place “where myth meets luxury”, it’s an easy drive from InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort to UNESCO world heritage sites of Hoi An, Hue and My Son, making it a perfect base for travellers seeking an experience that connects them to central Vietnam.
