Victoria Hotels and Resorts connect guests with the real Indochina in ways like no other hotel can. Proud of our Indochina roots, our boutique properties embrace the best aspects of the colonial heritage, while showcasing local culture and landscapes. We are dedicated to helping our guests along their journeys of distinction through heartfelt service, pride in our culture, and generosity of spirit.

Victoria also offers guests cruising and rail travel opportunities in key tourism destinations in Vietnam and Laos, providing guests with unparalleled charm, comfort, service and privacy

From the pristine mountains of Sapa to the historic Hoi An Ancient Town, from the coastline backed by desert-like sand dunes in Phan Thiet to the exotic floating markets of the Mekong Delta or Luang Prabang, one of Asia’s most beautiful and peaceful towns, each property offers genuine hospitality and a lively energy that are trademarks of the real Indochina. Mixing French-colonial styles of architecture with flourishes of local tradition, our captivating properties blend history, culture and landscape into a gently unforgettable experience. 




Both within and beyond the walls of our hotel we connect our guests with the magic of the Real Indochina


We care for our guests like Asian hotels used to. We carefully create indulgent moments and celebrate our colonial heritage and style.


We respect and support our communities. We ensure that interactions with our guests are a positive experience on both sides.


We are not city-slickers, we are people from small towns in the heart of Indochina and we welcome guests as we would in our family home.


We don’t take ourselves too seriously. Our vehicles, F&B outlets, excursions, kids clubs and our cuisine are designed to inspire and entertain and engage our guests. Everything is done with a dash of style and a sense of fun.



Right from its beginnings in the early 1990s, Victoria has always forged its own path. When other companies were building enormous hotels in major cities, Victoria looked to Vietnam’s less visited, but equally fascinating destinations – places where hardly any hotels existed, much less upscale boutique resorts with a colonial vibe. Our first three resorts were built in quick succession in 1997/98 – in the sleepy, coastal fishing village of Phan Thiet, the scenic highlands of Sapa and the idyllic countryside of Can Tho in the heart of the Mekong Delta, each bringing something completely new to the area.

"In 1993 we travelled around looking for investment opportunities and we were surprised by the poor hotels we found outside the main cities. We decided to create our own product." – Jean-Francois Henin, chairman of Victoria's then parent company, Eau et Electricite de Madagascar.

After more than two decades, Victoria continues to innovate and lead the way by achieving many “firsts” – first hotel spa in Hoi An, first upscale resort in Sapa – just to name a couple. Our outlook has always focused on the guest experience – smaller, better, more authentic – in sharing a slice of the beauty and charm of Indochina.
