Published on May 31, 2019

Long considered one of the finest coastlines in all of Asia, Danang is renowned for its powder sands, palm-fringed shores and gentle waves. It also offers a beguiling blend of sun, surf and charm that makes it one of the rare destinations that both children and parents can enjoy. Travelers craving a history lesson can head to nearby Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage Site brimming with picturesque architecture from the town’s days as a crucial trading port in the region, while sun-worshippers can spend the day soaking in the solar rays on the beach. 

Perfectly situated on the Son Tra Peninsula overlooking the sea, the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula offers unimpeded access to the pristine shoreline. Because the resort’s luxurious rooms, suites and villas are built into the hillside, stunning views abound. Legendary resort mastermind Bill Bensley lent his signature whimsical touch to the place with a design inspired by Vietnamese Buddhist temples. Everything from the ceramic bricks sourced from the traditional craft village of Bat Trang to the in-room minibars inspired by ornate cabinets found in traditional pharmacies in Hanoi is a tribute to the history and culture of Vietnam.

While many children may be content to simply lounge about in the resort’s exceptional pool, there are also plenty of activities available to keep curious young travelers engaged. Kids can learn everything from how to craft Vietnamese paper lanterns to how to pilot a traditional basket boat to how to make an iconic Vietnamese conical hat. Families can also take advantage of the Teen Center and Planet Trekkers, a complimentary kids’ club with all sorts of activities staffed by expert professionals. The resort even offers regular wildlife workshops with the resident zoologist, which is free for all guests.

For a limited time, the Family Getaway package offers all sorts of special perks and activities, including tree planting in the kids’ garden, basket boat fishing, free meals for children below 12, airport pickup transfers, and more.
