Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort opens Bill Bensley designed villa in Vietnam
Designer Bill Bensley lends his expertise to the luxurious interiors
Marking the latest addition to its global portfolio of penthouses and villas, InterContinental has announced the introduction of the luxury Bai Bac Bay villa in picturesque Vietnam – billed as both a hotel and work of art. Built into the mysterious hills of Monkey Mountain in the heart of the Son Tra Peninsula nature reserve – halfway between Northern Hanoi and the Southern metropolis of Ho Chi Minh – Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort provides unrivalled views of its stunning private bay.
The villa has been designed by famed architect and interior designer Bill Bensley, renowned for sustainable hotel projects including the Shinta Mani Wild Bensley Collection, Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle and JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay 'Lamarck University'. His design for the Danang Sun Peninsula was inspired by the abstract work of painter and printmaker Sean Scully who has twice been nominated for the Turner Prize.
Nestled on a secluded mountain slope for maximum privacy, the lavish beachfront villa is fit with large living spaces ideal for a contrasting break from the hustle and bustle of the city, two king bedrooms and one queen, three serene infinity pools, a variety of sun decks and terraces and kitchen. The impressive bathrooms are also equipped with the enormous marble bathtub the resort is known for.
"We are very excited to add this masterpiece into the resort’s Penthouse & Villa Collection and offer our guests one more option to experience true luxury holiday,” said resort general manager Juan Losada. “This is testament to our commitment in deliver the best experience, to meet the expectation of our most discerning clients, who seek for opulent resort in Danang and throughout Vietnam, where the demand for luxury accommodation has never been greater."
Starting from £3,200 per night, guests of the villa can enjoy access to their own private butler, chauffer, and chef and complimentary massages to aid relaxation and ease jet lag. For a dose of wellness, The HARNN Heritage Spa is set in a private lagoon where travelers can treat themselves to a pedicure by ‘podiatrist to the stars’ Bastien Gonzalez.
Gastronomes can tuck in at restaurant La Maison 1888 led by world-renowned Michelin-starred Chef Pierre Gagnaire, while those seeking a taste of authentic Vietnam can enjoy traditional Vietnamese afternoon tea served up poolside followed by a selection of canapés and cocktails – all while taking in the breath-taking sunset views of course.
