Sun Group resort named world’s leading luxury resort for third time
The InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort of Vietnam’s estate developer Sun Group has been honored by the World Travel Awards as the World's Leading Luxury Resort 2016.
This is the first resort in the history of the World Travel Awards (WTA) to win the prestigious accolade for three consecutive years.
InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort received the highest number of votes from travel professionals and industry stakeholders from around the world, surpassing all competition.
“We are extremely proud to have retained this world-renowned award for the third consecutive year. We could not have achieved this without the full dedication of our whole resort team, significant support from our mother company Sun Group, and, of course, our valuable guests,” said Juan Losada, the resort’s general manager.
“At the same time, this award reinforces our commitment to stay focused on delivering world-class services in the months and years to come,” he said.
Hidden in the myth-filled hills of Monkey Mountain in the heart of Son Tra Nature Reserve in the central city of Da Nang, the five-star InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is as much a work of art as a resort.
Set in 37 hectares of stepped gardens leading down to a private beach - with a dramatic view of the sea enjoyable 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) that recently enlisted world-renowned, Michelin-star chef Pierre Gagnaire, while those looking for a genuine wellness retreat will love HARNN Heritage Spa set in its private lagoon.
The range and exquisite choice of entertainment and relaxation explains why in the past years International Danang Sun Peninsula Resort has become the retreat of many of the world’s politicians and celebrities.
The resort has also been chosen to host major events for the upcoming APEC 2017 in Danang next year.
Prior to winning this accolade, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort raided the trophy vaults of many other prestigious awards from the most reputed organisations, such as three other World Travel Awards for Asia and Australasia.
It was also honoured as the number one resort in Asia by Condé Nast Traveler, the Best Resort Hotel in the Asia-Pacific by the Business Traveller, and has made it among the 21 Most Beautiful Beachfront Hotels in the World, as published by CNN.
Third-time champion of the industry's equivalent to the Oscar's (comparison by the Wall Street Journal), InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort seeks to realise Sun Group’s commitment of hammering Vietnam onto the world map of elite tourism.
