The Hanoitimes - The InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort in the central coastal city of Da Nang was named the World’s Leading Luxury Resort 2015 at a ceremony in El Jadida port city of Morocco on December 13 (Vietnam time).
The Sun Group’s resort is the only one in the history of the World Travel Awards to clinch the prize - which is dubbed as the “Oscar of the Travel Industry” for two consecutive years.
The iconic 197-room resort, located 600 metres above sea level on the Son Tra Peninsula in the central city, was designed by architect Bill Bensley from Bensley Design Studios in Bangkok.
