隱世中的氣派 Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort
The hidden luxury - Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort
越南峴港的度假酒店多不勝數，大多也是沿著長長的海岸線而建，唯獨於去年6月才開幕的Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort，建於山茶半島的山林之中，讓旅客可高人一等欣賞海景，同時感受幽靜，今次到峴港一遊當然也要入住試試。
Unlike most resorts and hotels, which built along the coast of Da Nang, the newly opened (in Jun last year) Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort was built on the lovely Son Tra Peninsula, the hotel views is spectacular, and the coastline offers you peace in mind. My experience with this hotel is awesome!
向海而建的獨立別墅The villas are all with wonderful sea views
There is a long driveway before you reached the hotel, there is absolute privacy, and you feel like a paradise here. Along the driveway, there are rows of monkey statues, I were curious about this and having asked the staff there, apparently the Son Tra Mountain was also named “Monkey Mountain” by the American soldiers during the Vietnam War due to its Monkey residents, and in memory of “Monkey Mountain”, Monkey Statues were built.

The reception is stunning, with high ceiling, and open space; as the level is named, you really feel like you are in “heaven”, the next level is named “Sky”, followed by “Earth” and “Sea”, the price of villas vary in accordance with the levels, with “Sea” level being the most expensive. This nicely built hotel, with a touch of traditional Vietnam in the hotel design, is designed by Bill Bensley, who also designed Four Seasons properties in Hangzhou and Chiang Mai. Speaking on traditional Vietnam design, the connecting tram between the “Heaven” and “Sea” level is of Vietnam traditional basket boat design, very cute indeed!

The resort has 197 villas with magnificent sea views. The rooms are so spacious that even the smallest has more than 700 square feet. You can enjoy a relaxing afternoon on its wide balcony, overlooking the ocean. If you wish to go to the restaurants, pool or spa centre, all you need to do is call for a golf cart to take you wherever you wish.
到越南除了吃越菜，當然也要嘆一頓正宗的法國菜，於酒店底層的由米芝蓮三星名廚Michel Roux主理的La Maison 1888就是峴港最具名氣的選擇，可別錯過。
Other than Vietnamese cuisine, French cuisine is also very famous in this former French colony. La Maison 1888, managed by Michelin three-star chef Michel Roux, has a very good reputation and should not be missed.
