Stay in comfortable surroundings around the country without compromising your access to socially constructive tourism experiences.
What to experience?
Rather than plant its properties in the impersonal surroundings of urban centres, Victoria Hotels & Resorts decided to establish itself in more far-flung regions, allowing travellers to discover unspoiled, natural beauty while enjoying comfortable accommodation.
Victoria currently has five properties throughout Vietnam, each designed to reflect the local culture. The hotels blend French colonial architecture and subtle luxuries with natural surroundings and indigenous handicrafts. The interiors reflect local influence while giving guests a home-like atmosphere in some of the country’s more remote areas. Individual hotels provide a distinct atmosphere with accompanying activities to present an authentic base from which to explore the locale and meet its people.
The company’s first property, , opened in 1997 on the South China Sea some 200 km north of Ho Chi Minh City. The following year, began welcoming guests in the Hoang Lien Mountains near the Chinese border. The Mekong Delta is home to the and the near the Cambodian border. The most recent addition, the , opened in 2001.
How does it help?
The founders of Victoria Hotels & Resorts were engaged on a responsible path long before it becomes trendy. It now belongs to a Vietnamese group that also believes in providing residents in host communities with international hotel management skills through training that leads to a career path in the hospitality industry. Each hotel largely depends on the locals for staffing its ranks, and this is not limited to hourly wage earners and mid-level management, but for senior executive positions as well.
Each year, all Victoria hotels organise a Green Day during which the management teams lead local volunteers in cleaning up the surrounding areas. This activity provides an excellent opportunity for hotel staff to socialise with members of communities in which they work.
Victoria Hotels arrange local tour programmes such as visits and homestays at local villages. The aim of these activities is to provide guests with a more realistic experience and deeper insight into the local lifestyle, culture and customs. Each hotel also presents cultural performances during dinner and displays local ethnic handicrafts at the lobby areas.
