Victoria Can Tho Resort
Set on the banks of the Hau River in the Mekong Delta, this colonial-style hotel embraces its surroundings with riverboat tours and panoramic water views. Inside, the 92 guest rooms are bright and airy, with high ceilings, hardwood floors, all-white linens, and private balconies overlooking the river, tropical gardens, or outdoor pool. Guest activities range from riverside massages in thatched-roof bungalows to Vietnamese cooking classes and river cruises on the Lady Hau, designed to resemble a traditional rice barge. The hotel also has a cocktail bar and a restaurant serving European and Vietnamese fare from French chef David Lacroix.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
