Of course such a resort is expensive and the average rate is around RM 1,200 a night depending on high, low or mid season but this is the normal price of a hotel of this class.
Intercontinental Danang is 30 minutes drive from Danang city on Sun peninsula and is really a retreat as you can stay here for a few days and not step out of the expansive gardens and facilities like the famous spa.
The last time Nadia Abdullah stayed here, she paid RM 1,700 a night but swears it was worth every sen.
In fact, Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is so exclusive outsiders cannot just drive in for a look-see! You need to phone in advance and make a booking to dine at the restaurant or bar or enjoy some of the facilities. Once approved, your name will be on the check list of the security guards manning the entrance! Then only are you allowed to drive in.
