Victoria Chau Doc Resort

The Victoria Chau Doc Hotel offers front seat views of the river habitat with its famous floating fish farming villages, floating markets and Cham villages.

Deep in the Mekong Delta, Chau Doc town is 280 km (174 miles) south-west of Ho Chi Minh City close to the Cambodian border. Such proximity to Cambodia has been nurturing the eclectic mix of Cham, Khmer, Chinese and Vietnamese cultures and historical richness.

Linking Chau Doc and Phnom Penh, the Victoria Speedboats are the ideal means to cruise the Mekong River. The journey takes 5 hours from Chau Doc to Phnom Penh.

The Victoria Chau Doc Hotel features 92 wood floored rooms, including 4 suites, most offering spectacular views of the river. Each room combines the elegance of traditional Vietnamese handicraft and colonial old world charm.

The Bassac Restaurant sits right on the banks of the Bassac River with its magical view, particularly during the early morning sunrise. From just before the sunrise until an hour later, the early rays change the colours of the landscape every minute; the floating markets are in full action and in the distance the sky & water merge perfectly. Specialties include European and Vietnamese cuisine and barbecues on its riverbank terrace.


The Tan Chau Salon bar offers fresh drinks, cocktails and Western and Asian snacks, the perfect place to unwind after a day of sightseeing in Chau Doc. The bar also offers service to the swimming pool area.

The Victoria Chau Doc Hotel offers a fine wine list including Victoria Hotels & Resorts exclusive Private Wine Collection: the exquisite Bordeaux Millesime 2003 and Chardonnay Millesime 2004, sparkling wines and great European, Australian, New Zealand, Chilean and South African wines.
