InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, Vietnam - Full-Time Travel

InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort

In a Nutshell:

Arguably Intercontinental Hotel Group’s most luxurious resort in the world, the Intercontinental Sun Peninsula is nestled in a private bay, amid the hills of the Son Tra Peninsula – also known as the Mythical Monkey Mountain. The resort’s landscape of lush gardens, pristine beach and gorgeous ocean/jungle views are spectacular.

EDITOR'S TIP: Close your terrace doors and do not leave food out in your room unless you’d like some monkey guests. If you're lucky you'll spot the Red Shanked Douc, which many consider the world’s most beautiful primate.

The Style: The Sun Peninsula was built by Bangkok-based architect Bill Bensley, whose design philosophy was “the more odd, the better.”  The property’s black lacquered wood and white tiles reflect the grandeur of Vietnamese temples. 
Perfect For:
beach getaway Family Friendly Romantic Break Spa & Wellness
Sun Peninsual Residence Villa - Private Pool
Why We Love It:
  • Breakfast at Citron, which is high on the hill with views of the mountain and bay from unique booths shaped like traditional Non La Hats
  • The Long Bar, with its beach day beds overlooking the beach and ocean
  • The Tram, which takes you slowly from the beach to the highest point of the resort with magnificent views
  • The ancient City of Hoi An is roughly 20 miles from the resort
  • It’s the only resort to have its own exclusive airport lounge at Danang Airport

Known for its stunning sand dunes that create a landscape resembling white sheets (lençóis in Portuguese), Lençóis Maranhenses is a unique national park located in the state of Maranhão, Brazil.

The park`s most iconic feature is the series of turquoise lagoons formed by rainwater that collects between the dunes. These lagoons are a stark contrast to the surrounding white sands and provide a refreshing oasis for visitors.

A travel entrepreneur rows 3,000 miles in 36 days, completely unsupported.

In the latest episode of our podcast, The Trip That Changed Me, travel entrepreneur, Jimmy Carroll (@jimmyalexandercarroll), shares his experiences of participating in the world’s toughest rowing race: the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge.

For 36 days, Jimmy and his three teammates rowed in alternating two-hour stints for 24 hours a day, through storms, sleep deprivation, and an unexpected attack from a 12-foot blue marlin. It was an experience that pushed them to the limit of their resilience but one that was also full of profound beauty and awe.
