Oh the views!
Bai Bac, Son Tra Peninsula, Da Nang T: (0511) 3938 888
Boasting prices as high as its peninsula top positioning, the Intercontinental is dripping in luxury, style and views that money apparently can buy, at least for a short visit.
Rooms are extravagant and kitted out to the luxury standards you'd expect, with all rooms types designed around the view and decoration tilted to the region's riches. If you plan to go for fullout splurge, this is the place to do it. One of the resort's restaurants, La Maison 1888, is touted to be Vietnam's best restaurant and shakes its tail feathers under the name of Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux (he's rarely in situ and the restaurant is headed by chef Stephane Collier);the other is the incredibly appointed Citron. Although the resort offers daily shuttles to and from both Da Nang and Hoi An, there's not an awful lot to do in the immediate area unless you hire a bike and take to the mountain paths, which is well worthwhile. But at these prices you might just want to buckle down for a few days and leave the sightseeing for your next stop.
