To start planning your vacation to Victoria Sapa Resort
1650 meters above sea level in Lao Cai Province, near the Chinese Border, Sapa was originally a French hill station partially chosen due its cool climate. Today it is still home to more than 30 colorful hill tribes and Vietnam's highest peak, Mount Fansipan. It is an area of stunning natural beauty and fascinating cultural diversity and days can be spent here being as energetic or relaxed as you like - with options including trekking, mountain biking or simply wandering through the markets or curling up with a good book and enjoying the spectacular valley views.
Traveling to Sapa from Hanoi is an experience in itself on board the Victoria Express Train which is exclusively for the use of hotel guests. The 8-hour 30-minute journey allows time for a memorable dinner and a sleep in your private cabin. Located above the village of Sapa with views of the surrounding mountains, the Victoria Sapa’s alpine chalet-style architecture blends perfectly with the stunning scenery. There are 77 attractively furnished guest rooms which are simple yet comfortable.
The Victoria Sapa's 21 Superior Rooms, 52 Deluxe rooms (with private balconies) and 2 spacious Suites (with sitting room and large balcony with a sofa) all have wooden flooring and a touch of local decoration.
