Victoria Hotels & Resorts (www.victoriahotels.asia) is the rising star of luxury holidays in Indochina.
It operates the mountain chalet-style Victoria Sapa Resort & Spa, close to the Chinese border in the picturesque north-west highlands of Vietnam; Victoria Can Tho Resort and Victoria Chau Doc Hotel in the Mekong Delta; Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa on the outskirts of the UNESCO World Heritage city of Hoi An; Victoria Phan Thiet Beach Resort & Spa 200km north of Ho Chi Minh City; and Victoria Angkor Resort & Spa in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Mr. Eric Simard, Managing Director of Victoria Hotels & Resorts, said: "As a group we are committed to spreading the environmental message across Indochina."
Victoria Hotels & Resorts is a boutique group of six luxury Indochina retreats embracing off-the-beaten-track mountain and beach spa resorts in Vietnam, two colonial-style hotels in the Mekong Delta, and an elegant spa resort at Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
With a passion for Indochina's rich cultural and historical diversity, enchanting landscapes and delightful people, the group's resorts and hotels are uniquely distinguished for their charm and locations in the most authentic and unspoiled areas of Vietnam and Cambodia.
The group operates a luxury Victoria Express Train from Hanoi to the Victoria Sapa Resort & Spa in the remote northwest highlands of Vietnam. In the Mekong Delta, guests explore one of the world's great inland waterways and travel from Chau Doc to Phnom Penh aboard Victoria Speedboats and a converted rice barge.
Victoria Hotels & Resorts does not follow the crowds of mass modern-day tourism - it forges a path ahead of them.
Victoria Sapa Resort & Spa
In the remote north-west highlands of Vietnam, Victoria Sapa Resort & Spa is a traditional mountain chalet, complete with stone-hearth fireplace and luxurious new spa 1,650 metres above sea-level in the Hoang Lien Mountains, close to the Chinese border. Amid spectacular scenery beneath Vietnam's highest peak, the 3,143-metre Mount Fansipan, the cool, pristine region is home to more than 30 colourful hill tribes - with tours to their minority villages and markets the highlights of any visit. The region is also emerging as an exciting new trekking destination.
Guests arrive aboard the romantic and elegant Victoria Express Train, a unique travel experience in its own right, operating along a 380km railway journey from Hanoi. Overlooking the mountain village of Sapa, blending sensitively with the unspoiled environment, Victoria Sapa Resort & Spa was voted ‘Best Hotel in the North-West Region' in both 2004 and 2005 and was awarded for its "Harmony with Nature" in 2008 by The Guide, a publication of the Vietnam Economic Times.
Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa
On a pristine white-sand beach on the outskirts of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hoi An in central Vietnam, Victoria Hoi An Beach Resort & Spa is a warm, restful retreat replicating a traditional fishing village with small streets, water ponds and village houses with clay-tiled roofs.
The historic sea port of Hoi An is uniquely preserved as a 15th century trading post on the ancient silk route, while other UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the vicinity include the Cham temple ruins at My Son, the historic capital of Vietnam's ancient Champa civilization, and the former Imperial capital of Hue.
Victoria Phan Thiet Beach Resort & Spa
At one of Vietnam's most idyllic seaside resorts, 200km north of Ho Chi Minh City, Victoria Phan Thiet Beach Resort & Spa is located beside a vast, palm-fringed private white sand beach on the South China Sea, with 60 bungalows designed in the style of traditional Vietnamese country houses in exotic gardens. The Guide, a publication of the Vietnam Economic Times, voted it ‘Best Resort' in its southern province.
The resort is close to Phan Thiet, a charming fishing village with archaeological remnants of the Cham Empire, and the beach is backed by desert-like sand dunes that are home to rare flora and fauna.
Victoria Can Tho Resort and Victoria Chau Doc Hotel in the Mekong Delta
On the banks of one of the world's greatest and most mysterious waters in Vietnam's ‘Deep South', Victoria Can Tho Resort opened in 1998 as the flagship of Victoria Hotels & Resorts in the Mekong Delta -- and first luxury hotel in the region. Amid bustling floating markets, myriad of canals and vibrant green rice paddies, the splendid colonial-style hotel is set in magnificent gardens on the banks of the Hau River, one of the delta's nine estuaries. To experience the pulse of delta life, sunrise and sunset cruises to the local floating market aboard the resort's private traditional wooden rice barge, the Lady Hau, are a highlight.
Deeper in the Mekong Delta, close to the Cambodian border in a region famed for the climax of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, the Victoria Chau Doc Hotel is a grand hotel built in colonial style with low-rise French architecture opened in 1999. From this unique location beside the Bassac River at the ‘Three River Crossing', guests can explore life deep into the delta traveling aboard a fleet of private Victoria Speedboats from the hotel to Phnom Penh in Cambodia and vice versa. The resort was awarded in 2008 for its "Ingenious use of plants to make a green statement" by The Guide, a publication of Vietnam Economic Times.
Victoria Angkor Resort & Spa in Siem Reap, Cambodia
The newest jewel in the crown of the group, Victoria Angkor Resort & Spa is just 10 minutes from the World Heritage Angkor Wat temple complex, one of the great wonders of the world. Neighbouring the King's Residence in Siem Reap, overlooking the Royal Gardens, the resort styled gracefully in 1930s colonial style is a tranquil haven with the elegant refinement of the French "art de vivre". It is within walking distance of the Old Market and river, 7kms from the airport, and has a partnership arrangement with a Nick Faldo-designed championship golf course, recently opened nearby.
