The InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is honoured to have been chosen as the official venue to celebrate the launch of Qatar Airways’ direct flights from Doha to Da Nang.
The inaugural flight from Doha’s Hamad International Airport touched down in Da Nang at half past one in the afternoon of December 19, 2018, and was welcomed by the traditional water salute.
The following day, a press conference with Qatar Airways’ Group Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, was held in the resort, and in the evening, over 160 guests attended a spectacular gala dinner.
The Summit was a fitting location for both events. Striking black and white interiors framed panoramic views of the bay and lush mountainside, while imaginative flourishes of warm imperial citron and French chartreuse green illuminated the meeting suites.
The prestige of the Qatar Airways event capped a remarkable year filled with outstanding accolades for the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort: listed among The Best Resorts in the World and ranked third among the Top Resorts in Asia in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards; four awards including the World’s Leading Luxury MICE Resort at the World Travel Awards; another four, including Global Best Beach Resort, at the Haute Grandeur Global Hotel Awards; listed among the Best Resort Hotels in Asia Pacific by Business Traveller Asia- Pacific; ranked first among the Top 25 Wedding Hotels of the Smart Travel Asia Best in Travel Poll; and awarded Best Luxury Spa Retreat, Country Winner at the World Luxury Spa Awards.
Mr. Juan Losada, General Manager, said, “It is a wonderful privilege to have been trusted by Qatar Airways for the inauguration of their third route to Vietnam, and we are delighted to be connected to such a significant gateway. We look forward to sharing our extraordinary experiences with more travelers from Europe and the Middle East.”
Qatar Airways operates four-times weekly flights between Doha and Da Nang on a Boeing 787-8 aircraft.
