Shilla Monogram Quangnam Danang – A Destination of Perfect Balance
After Vietnam achieved success in flattening the COVID-19 curve, in an effort to restart the tourist industry, the Vietnam Tourism Association has announced a set of criteria for safe traveling, under the campaign “Vietnam, The Safe Haven of Travel.”
While the travelling of large groups is discouraged, holidays for families or small groups are now the preferred options. With this in mind, after the tough times brought on by the lockdown, having an opportunity to have a well-deserved break is exactly what Shilla Monogram Quangnam Danang provides to travelers.
The resort’s beautiful and convenient location by the tranquil Non Nuoc beach, is right in between the dynamic city of Da Nang and the Hoi An Ancient town. The whole complex at the resort itself includes:
309 rooms, including 42 superior rooms, 238 deluxe and premier deluxe rooms, 20 suite rooms, 8 residences, and 1 luxurious Monogram Villa facing to the ocean. Almost all rooms own magnificent views overlooking the sea or Son Tra peninsula.
Four outdoor swimming pools of different sizes, suitable for children and adults alike.
Stylish poolside cabanas, unique to Shilla Monogram Quangnam Danang, which become ideal private oases for families and couples to relax and recharge in style.
Monogram Lounge, an intimate space to indulge in local culture and treats.
The Pavilion with design inspired by lotus flower is the heart of the resort holding a panoramic view to the ocean.
Cute Little Monogram brings a touch of fun to kids, where they can play and learn new things, enabling parents to unwind knowing their children are safe and happy with the resort’s childcare team.
Numerous other recreational facilities such as restaurants, bars, spa, sauna, gym, and therapy garden.
Shilla Monogram Quangnam Danang is where the heritage of The Shilla meets Vietnam’s Central Coast flavor. Under the philosophy of balance, the resort impresses spectators with its unique architecture, a symbol of giant sails fully embracing the natural energy of the wind, sun and sea.
The design of two bows, crossing into an X-shape,represents the symbol of balance and a unique highlight for tourism in Vietnam and in particular, Quang Nam, Da Nang. The neutral-toned interiors with earthy material and texture exude calm ambience and contemporary elegance. The resort is filled with artwork using regional materials and invites guests to discover local contemporary arts on site.
Ha Manh Thang, a young Vietnamese painter, created a bespoke collection for the Monogram Lounge. This is an ideal blend of a sophisticated and modern featured style by The Shilla with the charming fine art of local artists.
“We want to create a harmonious cultural balance by infusing the timeless and genuine values of The Shilla and embracing the local indigenous charm and beauty of Da Nang with inspirations from its local arts and culture. The cultural differences are carefully considered and respected as part of this balance; and then by harmonizing, we showcase the very best of each in our product, from the design, layout, services to what we offer through dining and entertainment. Our aim is to bring the best of Danang and Quang Nam to our customers from everywhere of the world,” shared Marc Emmanuel.
