Danang, Vietnam, 28 January 2014: Central Vietnam’s celebrated 5-star resort InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula is in the reality TV spotlight as location for a new episode of the American reality dating game show The Bachelor.

The stunning resort is the captivating backdrop for episode five of the hit show’s 18th season on ABC-TV, hosting single parent bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis on his quest to find a wife of his dreams.

In the episode, the American-Venezuelan former professional soccer player’s pursuit of romance finds an idyllic setting at the new 5-star resort near Danang.

With striking panoramic views from its own private bay overlooking the East Sea, descending down a jungle slope to a pristine white beach, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula is one of Asia's most talked about destinations.

A first-of-its-kind groundbreaking resort, it is designed in its entirety – from villas and restaurants to décor and even table settings – by world famous architect Bill Bensley, who was given a free hand to realise his vision of “where myth meets luxury”.

The result is a breathtaking architectural masterpiece of surprise with design quirks at every turn, from the ‘industrial’ HARNN Heritage Spa to imperial-styled signature restaurant La Maison 1888, with cuisine by legendary 3 star Michelin star French chef Michel Roux Snr.

The Bachelor’s producer director Mike Fleiss showcases an awe-inspiring tour of the resort; from the jungle-clad private peninsula of Son Tra Bay to the stunning Royal Residence by the Sea, and descending the unique ‘Nam Tram’ funicular railway to romantic beachfront restaurant Barefoot and the Long Bar.

Viewers of the TV show will see for themselves why the resort collected some of the world’s top awards last year after opening – including Conde Nast Traveler’s ranking among the best new hotels in the world and Robb Report’s “Best of the Best” award. It was also voted Asia’s Leading New Resort and Vietnam’s Leading Resort in the World Travel Awards.

The resort also showcases Central Vietnam’s premiere conference centre The Summit, which recently hosted a think-tank forum of global leaders including former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

ABC’s hit series The Bachelor made its debut in 2002. The upcoming fifth episode showcasing Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula features a special cultural group date and two unforgettable one-on-one dates for dashing single dad Juan Pablo. The episode is scheduled to air Monday, February 3, 2014, at 8/7c on ABC.

In real life, Juan Pablo, 32, retired as a professional footballer for Miami in 2008, and is the single parent of a 5 year-old daughter, with his former girlfriend, Venezuelan actress Carla Rodriguez.
