CREATED TO CELEBRATE  InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort‘s 10th anniversary, the Nam Tram Dining Journey is a unique gastronomic experience that transports couples across the resort’s four levels, from Heaven to Sea. It’s a four-course experience unlike any other.

Spilling 130 meters down the resort’s levels—Heaven, Sky, Earth and Sea—the Nam Tram was designed by celebrated architect Bill Bensley in the form of a traditional Vietnamese basket boat. Now, dining guests ride from the highest point of the resort (known as “Heaven”) through the jungle-clad hillside, ending at the private beach at “Sea” level. As the elegant, intimate carriage passes through lush gardens and forest, home to many species of wildlife including the critically endangered red-shanked douc langur, couples will be treated to an unforgettable four-course fine-dining menu.

Following welcome cocktails at Citron, the elevated Vietnamese dining venue which appears to float above the hillside, the culinary odyssey commences with “A Heavenly Start”, an exquisite appetizer of Alaskan King Crab with Caviar, garden herbs, beetroot rice paper, green apple, fresh artichoke, cherries and candied pecans. Descending gracefully through the trees, guests will reach “Sky”, where they will alight and enjoy a flute of Billecart Salmon Brut Champagne whilst exploring the Outsider Gallery, Vietnam’s only art gallery dedicated to works by Bill Bensley. Back onboard the Nam Tram, “The Sky’s The Limit” will be served: Imperial Abalone Soup—a clear broth with ginseng and ginger.

The experience continues with “Down to The Earth”, a mouth-watering main course of Kagoshima Beef A5+ Satsuma Gyu – one of the world’s finest rib steaks, grilled to perfection and finished in horseradish hazelnut butter with a stuffed onion, mustard leaves, arugula sorbet, candied red peppers and pommes pailles. At this level, guests will also have the chance to visit La Maison 1888, the first restaurant in Vietnam to feature a Michelin-starred chef, and its famous wine cellar, both of which are set in a colonial Indochine mansion.

Finally, descending from “Earth” to “Sea”, the journey concludes on the beach or at L_o_n_g Bar, the blissful beachside lounge where diners will be treated to Almond Chocolate Tart, served with chocolate cream, almond cream, vanilla Chantilly and fresh berries, followed by coffee or tea.
