At the World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony 2016, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula is very proud to be named as:

  • Asia’s Leading Luxury Resort
  • Vietnam’s Leading Resort
  • Vietnam’s Leading Spa Resort

This is the third consecutive year the resort is honourly recognised by the World Travel Awards. The event was held on the evening of the 15th October 2016, at The Great Hall.


The industry’s elite, including industry’s leaders, government’s representatives, luminaries, and international print and broadcast media, attended the gala event, heralded as the travel industry’s equivalent to the Oscar’s by The Wall Street Journal. Into its 23rd year, the WTA was launched to celebrate organisations that push the boundaries of industry excellence, and is acknowledged across the globe as the ultimate travel and tourism accolade.

“We are thrilled to receive these prestigious awards and be recognised as Asia’s leading luxury resort by our discerning guests as well as by the industry, “ said Juan Losada, General Manager, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort. “This is a huge recognition for our team and together with our owners at Sun Group and as part of the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), we remain dedicated to delivering the highest levels of service excellence and to create unforgettable memories for guests who choose our resort as their preferred residence.”

Prior to this accolade, the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort was a recent proud recipient of World Spa Awards 2016 and has made it among the 21 Most Beautiful Beachfront Hotels in the World, as published by CNN in September 2016. Over the years, the resort has been consistently recognised with prestigious awards including the World’s Leading Luxury Resort 2014 and 2015 by World Travel Awards, World Luxury Spa Awards, World Luxury Hotel Awards, Best Resort Hotel in Asia Pacific by Business Traveller, to name just a few.

InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is one-of-a-kind resort that redefines the definition of luxury. Set in 37 hectares of stepped gardens leading down to a private beach, each of 200 rooms and villas guarantees dramatic views of crystal clear waters of the Eastern Sea. 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.
