Annually, various sectors of the tourism industry are recognised, rewarded and celebrated at the World’s Travel Awards ceremony with the attendance of the industry leaders across the region. Similar to last year, the Resort received the highest votes from travel professionals and high-end tourism consumers from around the world and was honoured with the World’s Leading Luxury Resort award for the second time.
Awarded by the World Travel Awards 2014 as the World’s Leading Luxury Resort, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort emerged once again as the winner this year, surpassing ten other nominees for the worldwide category top award “World’s Leading Luxury Resort 2015”.
“It is an honour to recognise InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort as the World’s Leading Luxury Resort for the second year in succession. These global accolades are the benchmark in international hospitality and InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort has once again been recognised by our voters as the very best in the world.” said Graham Cooke, President of the World Travel Awards.
Designed by the star architect Bill Bensley with two hundred luxurious rooms, suites and villas and embedded in the mythical hills of the famous Son Tra Penninsula, the Resort has also won four awards in the Asia & Australasia category earlier in November 2015.
Juan Losada, Resort Manager of InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort said , ‘We are extremely proud to have retained this top worldwide award again this year. We couldn’t have done it without the dedication of our whole resort team, the significant support of our owning company Sun Group and of course our guests. The award, at the same time, is a commitment and we need to stay focused on delivering the world class service for the months and years to come.”
With the goal of delivering its promise “Where Myth Meets Luxury”, the Resort has been holding numerous high-profile international and domestic events and it continues to redefine luxury resort experience worldwide.
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 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.
Gourmet travellers will appreciate La Maison 1888 (and its outstanding wine cellar) by multi-Michelin starred Pierre Gagnaire, while those looking for a genuine wellness retreat will love the HARNN Heritage Spa set in a private lagoon. Travellers can treat tired feet to the ultimate pedicure by ‘podiatrist to the stars’ Bastien Gonzalez as global leaders put the world to rights at The Summit, the resort’s impressive conference centre.
Billed as the place “where myth meets luxury”, it’s an easy drive from InterContinental Danang to UNESCO world heritage sites of Hoi An, Hue and My Son (described as “Vietnam’s Angkor Wat”) making it a perfect base for travellers seeking an experience that connects them to central Vietnam.
