Victoria Can Tho is a luxury colonial style hotel located right in the heart of the Mekong Delta. Its fantastic location allows guests to experience local culture untouched by tourists and the stunning beauty of the area.
Can Tho is effectively the capital of the Mekong Delta region - the whole area is defined by the river and its tributaries and the water's value to the local villagers is priceless. The area is beautiful and dominated not only by the water but by bountiful lush agricultural land which surrounds it.
Situated on the banks of the Hau River, one of the nine estuaries of the Mekong Delta, the Victoria Can Tho is a welcoming colonial hotel with modern comforts. The hotel is perfectly placed for guests to soak up the surrounds and admire the diversity of the region and its people.
The rooms at the Victoria Can Tho are simple but stylish with dark wooden floors, crisp white linen and panoramic views of the river. The Spices Restaurant overlooks the Hau River and delicious Vietnamese and Western influenced meals can be enjoyed al fresco in this incredibly picturesque setting. Other surprises found here include a tennis court, swimming pool, fitness center and the wonderful spa set in the magnificent gardens where reflexology, facials and indulgent massages take place in individual treatment huts.
The hotel has 84 Superior and Deluxe Rooms and 8 Suites. Each room combines the elegance of traditional Vietnamese style with International standards of comfort. All have wooden floors and the Deluxe Rooms and the larger Suites have balconies from which to enjoy the peaceful surrounds of this unspoiled area.

Located right on the river, The Victoria Can Tho is a beautiful and charming hotel perfect for accessing the Mekong. There is only one restaurant here but it has a good mix of western and Vietnamese cuisine all at a very affordable price. The pool is also lovely, located right in the middle of the hotel making it a great central point and great place to relax overlooking the river and outdoor terrace of the restaurant.

The Victoria is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. You can rent kayaks or mountain bikes to explore the local area, cruising down little tributaries to visit floating villages or riding over small canals to explore the rice paddy fields or visit a traditional noodle factory. The Victoria is definitely a 4* property but it is comfortable and clean and the best place to stay overnight, allowing you to explore this untouched part of the Mekong Delta.
