After taking home three World Travel Awards for Asia and Australasia in October 2016, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort has again been honored by the World Travel Awards (WTA) as World's Leading Luxury Resort at the grand final gala ceremony held at The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, Maldives. This is the third consecutive year the resort has been honored with this very prestigious award.
The red carpet was once again rolled out on the 2nd December 2016 to welcome the industry's elite, including the world's top hoteliers and leading decision-makers who attended the event, heralded and described as the industry's equivalent to The Oscar's by the Wall Street Journal.
Already crowned by the WTA in 2014 and 2015 as World's Leading Luxury Resort, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort continues to receive the accolade from the WTA organisation for 2016 and emerged once again as the winner in this category after achieving the highest number of votes given by the travel professionals and industry players from around the world, surpassing the other nominees in the same category.
Mr. Juan Losada, resort's General Manager, said: "We are extremely proud to have retained this top worldwide award for the third consecutive year. We could not have achieved this without the full dedication of our whole resort team, significant support of our owning company Sun Group and of course, our valuable guests. At the same time this award is a commitment to staying 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 held 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 is 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), having recently welcomed world-renowned, Michelin-starred Chef 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 Sun Peninsula Resort 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.
