NOT ONLY DOES INTERCONTINENTAL DANANG Sun Peninsula Resort offer great food and close proximity to some of Vietnam’s most charming cultural attractions, but it has also been working hard to introduce an array of exciting, exclusive new experiences.
Visit the compelling new Bensley Outsider Gallery
You don’t have to be a fan of acclaimed architect and designer Bill Bensley (who designed the resort) to be intrigued with this gorgeous new gallery. Hidden amongst frangipani and bougainvillea on the “Sky Level” of the resort, the Bensley Outsider Gallery is a traditionally-built, naturally-lit timber pavilion fronted by a cobblestone courtyard. Inside, you’ll discover some 50 boldly colorful artworks, including prints and original paintings. What’s really unique is that gallery visitors can learn of the story behind each artwork through an interactive storytelling approach: each features a QR code that takes you to a YouTube video, where the artist himself explains his inspiration and the backstory of the piece.
A superlative, world-class wine experience
With the largest restaurant wine cellar in Vietnam, La Maison 1888 – the resort’s fine dining restaurant headed by Michelin-starred Chef Pierre Gagnaire – boasts the finest (and rarest) wines in the country. Head sommelier Raphael Gras has personally curated a collection of exceptional, highly sought-after labels from vineyards throughout France. For example, La Maison’s cellar holds Vietnam’s only bottles of Henri Jayer Cros Parantoux Burgundy and Château-Grillet. Other rare treasures can be discovered in the prestigious “Grandeur Collection” – and of course, there is a huge selection of more affordable vintages too. As a special experience, should guests select one of these Grand Cru Grandeur vintages, La Maison’s chef will prepare a complimentary dinner for two. What a memorable evening!
Dinner like you’re never experienced before
The Nam Tram funicular railway – scenic and practical transportation for guests to move up and down the jungled mountainside of the resort (and one of the most photographed spots) – is now a fun and unique culinary experience. The brand new “Nam Tram Dining Journey” wraps guests in a cozy candlelit atmosphere with dinner served progressively as the Tram makes its way down the 80-meter hillside.
Welcome cocktails are served in Citron at the top of the resort, then guests board a specially decorated Tram for their journey: appetizers on “Heaven Level”; a break for champagne at the new Bensley Outsider Gallery; an exquisite main course at “Earth Level” beside our award-winning La Maison restaurant, and dessert and digestifs at “Sea Level”.
Bookings are limited to one per evening, and it promises to be a dinner you’ll remember for a long time to come.
Your very own screening room
InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is the only resort in Vietnam with its own cinema: a remarkable 100-seat theatre with extra-comfortable leather cinema seats. You can book it for your very own screening. Imagine an afternoon or evening screening exclusively for you and your family or friends – along with complimentary popcorn and soft drinks. Choose your favorite film – and let’s go to the movies!
A “money-can’t-buy” experience
We’re thrilled that the InterContinental brand is celebrating its diamond anniversary: 75 years of pioneering international travel. And to celebrate this milestone year, our Resort has unveiled a very special offer: the Diamond Stay. It’s an all-inclusive, 3-day/2-night visit for 4 people in our ultra-luxurious two-bedroom Sun Peninsula Residence villa. You’ll enjoy a video “coffee date” with the world-renowned architect and artist Bill Bensley after a private tour of his Outsider Art Gallery, and you’ll also meet Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire live from Paris before enjoying your exquisite dinner at La Maison 1888. Plus a lot more!
Celebrate your milestone with fireworks
Our Ultimate Celebration package is the perfect choice if you or someone you love has an upcoming birthday or anniversary, or if you’re planning a reunion or get-together with family or friends.
Just imagine a pool party with a private DJ. A champagne welcome dinner in your luxe villa. A barbeque on the beach ends with a spectacular private fireworks show, just for you. The entire weekend can be customized to your group’s interests and needs, but one thing remains, an incredible opportunity to celebrate life’s special moments together.
InterContinental Danang is just 12 km from Danang International Airport but in its own magical world, surrounded by pristine rainforest and with one of Asia’s most beautiful secluded beaches. Discover more at danang.intercontinental.com
