Vanda, yes - tho I can't provide a specific name- it's quite pretty!

I have moved this thread to the "Identification" forum

Do you mean the flower in the upper left corner? Yes, that is a Vanda hybrid. It is what is called a terete hybrid, or Papilionanda, because it is crossed with a Papilionanthe species.

Papilionanthe is a genus of orchids that at one time were called Vandas. They differ because the leaves are thick and round, like a pencil. "Terete" is a botanical term that refers to thick, cylindrical leaves. The type species of Papilionanthe is Papilionanthe teres, which has this kind of leaf.

Papilionanthes, and their hybrids, need much more light even than Vandas. In most tropical areas they need at least a half day of full, direct sun. They also get big. For these reasons they are a challenge to grow in cold-winter areas. A cross between a Papilionanthe and Vanda is called a half-terete hybrid. A cross between a half-terete and another Vanda is called a quarter-terete. Quarter-terete plants don't need quite as much sun as half- and full teretes.

I found this link, which discusses them well:
