Condé Nast Traveller is considered the most prestigious and reputable award in the global tourism sector. The best resorts have been selected based on the experiences of 429,000 readers at these hotels and resorts.
Ranking 15th on the list, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort makes you feel like you have left the real world, even though it takes only 30 minutes to reach from the airport. Spreading over the green hills of the Son Tra Nature Reserve and looking at the white sandy beach, the resort was opened in 2012 and quickly became the first choice for a vacation. Additionally, this is also a hit destination for couples and friends who want to enjoy culinary arts and interesting healthcare services.
InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is also famous for bagging a hundred awards from other organisations, magazines, and international tourism websites. Especially, the resort has broken the record of the World Travel Awards (WTA) to become the first resort named the most world’s luxury resort for four consecutive years.

The Readers’ Choice Award of Condé Nast Traveller has also named JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay Resort & Spa at the 17th position. The hotel is considered as an attractive destination on the Kem beach on the southern shore of Phu Quoc Island. Its concept was formed by the legendary (fictional) Lamarck University from the 19th century to feature the theme of Chemistry class in the bar club, and the Physical Education class in the gym. The theme does not go at the expense of luxury at the 244 rooms and villas, as all of these have a view to the sea with a private swimming pool.
Although launched only at the end of 2016, JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay has been highlighted by reputable international and regional awards, such as the world’s leading new luxury resort in 2017 by World Travel Awards, and Southeast Asia’s outstanding luxury spa in 2017 for Chanterelle-Spa, also by WTA.

InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort and JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay earning a spot in the top 50 of Condé Nast Traveller’s Readers’ Choice Awards is not only a point of pride for Sun Group, but also a confirmation of the attractiveness of Vietnamese tourism. This reputable prize recognised the efforts of Sun Group to facilitate premium and unique tourism services, contributing to enabling Vietnam to become an impressive luxury destination on the global tourism map.
