The Victoria Chau Doc is located right on the banks of the Bassac River at the Three River Crossing and is the perfect place to sit back and watch the bustling life of the river. The proximity to Cambodia means there is an eclectic mix here of Khmer, Cham, Chinese and Vietnamese cultures and a unique historical richness.
The hotel has a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere and is imbued with old world charm. The rooms are simple and cosy with modern comforts, and many have fantastic balcony views of the river. With delicious food available from the waterside restaurant and wonderful facilities including a swimming pool, spa and gym, your time in Chau Doc can be focussed around pure relaxation or you can chose to explore this region by boat, bicycle or motorbike before continuing on to the new adventures Cambodia offers.
From the Victoria Chau Doc, guests can catch the fast boat to and from the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh, making it the prefect stop off point on any Mekong Delta trip.
The Victoria Chau Doc has 88 Superior and Deluxe Rooms and two Suites. The Deluxe Rooms and Suites have balconies with breathtaking views of the Bassac River and are highly recommended.
Children are made very welcome at the Victoria Chau Doc but there are no specific facilities for them except for babysitting, which can be arranged of request.
